An einem sonnigen Junimorgen des Jahres 1923 beginnt die begüterte Clarissa Dalloway mit den Vorbereitungen für eine elegante Abendgesellschaft. Im Verlauf des geschäftigen Tages überlässt sie sich immer wieder ihren Erinnerungen und Gedanken, und während der Big Ben unbeirrt seine Stunden schlägt, wird sie sich der Vergänglichkeit aller Dinge und der Enge ihres Daseins schmerzlich bewusst. Mit der virtuosen Schilderung der Innenwelten seiner Hauptfiguren gehört "Mrs Dalloway" zu den Meilensteinen der modernen Literatur. (Woolf, Virginia 1882 - 1941)

Genre: Fiction

Mrs. Dalloway takes place on one day in the middle of June 1923. Its plot is seemingly thin: a middle-aged society hostess is having a party; she hopes the Prime Minister will attend; she reconnects with old friends from her youth. From these slimmest of premises a whole world unfolds. Of all of Virginia Woolf’s novels, it is Mrs. Dalloway that appears to speak most intimately to our own time. Selected contemporary reviews, both positive and negative, are included in the appendices of this edition, as are materials on the literary, political, medical, and educational contexts of the novel.

Die Geschichte Mrs. Dalloway spielt an einem Junitag, im Jahre 1923. Der Schauplatz ist Englands Hauptstadt London.Die Hauptcharaktere der Geschichte, die in dieser Seminararbeit fokussiert werden sollen sind die 52 j hrige Clarissa Dalloway, der Berufssoldat Septimus Warren Smith und der Abenteurer Peter Walsh. Alle drei Charaktere haben eines gemeinsam: Ihre Vergangenheit l sst sie nicht los. Sie versuchen auf ihre eigene Art ihre Vergangenheit zu bew ltigen. Dabei wird die Gegenwart jedes Einzelnen stark beeinflusst. Diese vorliegende Arbeit soll zeigen, wie Clarissa Dalloway, Peter Walsh und Septimus Warren Smith sich mit ihrer Vergangenheit jeweils auseinandersetzen und wie sehr sich dieser Konflikt mit dem Erlebten auf ihre jeweilige Gegenwart auswirkt. Weiter soll gekl rt werden, wie unterschiedlich oder hnlich diese drei Charaktere ihre Vergangenheit bew ltigen. Dabei werde ich mich auf den Roman Mrs. Dalloway von Virginia Woolf beziehen, sowohl auch Sekund rliteratur hinzuziehen.Virginia Woolf benutzt eine ungeordnete Erz hltechnik, auf die ich in dieser Seminararbeit in einigen Punkten n her eingehen m chte. Dabei werde ich vor allem die Erz hlsituation erl utern. Aufgrund der Themenstellung m chte ich auch auf das Wechselspiel der Perspektiven eingehen und die Relation zwischen Erz hlzeit und erz hlte Zeit im Roman Mrs Dalloway fokussieren.

Genre: Fiction

A special edition of the “moving, revolutionary” novel about one day in a woman’s life (Michael Cunningham)—with extensive notes from a renowned Woolf scholar. When we meet her, Mrs. Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the last-minute details of party preparation, though in her mind she is something much more than a perfect society hostess. As she readies her house, she is flooded with remembrances of faraway times. And, met with the realities of the present, Clarissa reexamines the choices that brought her there, hesitantly looking ahead to the unfamiliar work of growing old. It is a work of art that still inspires today, leading author Michael Cunningham, for example, to write his bestseller The Hours. As Cunningham explains: “Mrs. Dalloway was the first novel to split the atom. If the novel before Mrs. Dalloway aspired to immensities of scope and scale, to heroic journeys across vast landscapes, with Mrs. Dalloway Virginia Woolf insisted that it could also locate the enormous within the everyday; that a life of errands and party-giving was every bit as viable a subject as any life lived anywhere; and that should any human act in any novel seem unimportant, it has merely been inadequately observed. The novel as an art form has not been the same since.” This edition, annotated and introduced by Bonnie Scott, offers notes on the text as well as invaluable critical analysis, and suggestions for further reading.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Seminar für Englische Philologie: Forschungs- und Lehrbereich Anglistik), course: Modern Fiction: "Ulysses" and "Mrs Dalloway", 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Mrs Dalloway,published in 1925, is widely accepted as a major work of 20thcentury English literature, because it introduced new stylistic approaches to writing and set basic aesthetic standards for the further development of literary modernism, thereby establishing Virginia Woolf as its leading female representative. Besides, the novel offers a subtle insight into the atmosphere in postwar London society, which was characterized by a feeling of overall destabilization and increasing isolation. Due to various causes, Great Britain’s political, economic, and social spheres had undergone fundamental changes during the previous decades: the rapidly increasing industrialization had completely transformed the working sphere, caused high unemployment rates and further fragmented class divisions, which culminated waves of political and social unrest; revolutionary findings in the natural and medical sciences put the traditional view of man into question and brought about a crisis of faith; beyond, the recent experience of the First World War and its aftermaths added considerably to an ‘atmosphere of gloom and doom’ in Great Britain. Altogether, the loss of belief into progress, the rise of scientific knowledge and the decay of traditional moral values resulted in a ‘disenchanted’ world view; the individual suffered from the growing atmosphere of coldness in society; he was “more isolated than ever before because he [could not] come in under an umbrella of common social forms, and thus escape from his sense of isolation” (Marder 64). Victorian guiding lines offered no adequate solutions for the demands of modern society anymore, and Virginia Woolf “was in accord with many of her contemporaries in rejecting Victorian values. The social code, she felt, had degenerated in most cases into mere formalism. She regarded Victorian morality as unrealistic and suspected those who professed it of hypocrisy” (Marder 47). Furthermore, her living at “a time when the hard-won victories of the suffragettes and women war workers were slowly being translated into law and affecting social attitudes” (Dowling 105) made her particularly interested in the emancipation’s cause, and in many of her essays and articles, Virginia Woolf questioned the traditional, socially constructed gender roles.

In what sense is Mrs Dalloway a psychological novel

Essay from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, Manchester Metropolitan University Business School, course: English Literature, language: English, abstract: In 'Mrs Dalloway', Virginia Woolf follows her characters' thoughts and feelings throughout one day in London in 1923. This day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway stretches far into her and others characters' past as certain memories always intermingle with their present experiences. Woolf is one of the key figures in modernist writing which puts great emphasis on the representation of the workings of the human mind. In 'Mrs Dalloway', Woolf tries to convey the characters' thoughts as accurately as possible for which she uses the technique known as stream of consciousness. The term was coined by William James in 'Principles of Psychology' (1890) to “denote the flow of inner experiences” (Cuddon 2000: 866). It attempts to depict the myriad thoughts and feelings that pass through the human mind. It was used, amongst others, by authors such as Marcel Proust in 'A la recherche du temps perdu' (1913-27) and James Joyce, who pushed the method to its limits of comprehensibility for the reader in 'Ulysses' (1922). This essay will concentrate on some of the aspects of the stream of consciousness applied in 'Mrs Dalloway' and its psychological impact on the novel as well as on the reader.
