Description

Virginia Woolf’s masterpiece, now in a beautiful clothbound edition designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith

‘One of the most moving, revolutionary artworks of the twentieth century’ Michael Cunningham

Clarissa Dalloway, elegant and vivacious, is preparing for a party and remembering those she once loved. In another part of London, Septimus Warren Smith is suffering from shell-shock and on the brink of madness. Smith’s day interweaves with that of Clarissa and her friends, their lives converging as the party reaches its glittering climax. Virginia Woolf’s masterly novel, in which she perfected the interior monologue, brings past, present and future together on one momentous day in June 1923.

Edited by Stella McNichol with an Introduction and Notes by Elaine Showalter
