Woolf, Virginia - Mrs Dalloway. Penguin, 1996 reprint. Yet as the evening aproaches, the unexpected arrival from India of her first lover Peter Walsh, triggers vivid memories of the past until, piece by piece, Clarissa brings to the surface the story of her life, of childhood dreams, and the row so many years ago that precipitated her uneventful marriage. She is suddenly and startingly aware of the force of life going on around her; of Spetimus Warren Smith going quietly mad with shell-shock; of her daughter Elizabeth, almost now a woman, and of Peter, unaltered, yet changed as she feels herself to be. In Mars Dalloway Woolf reveals the differences in the way people think and see and treat one another, brilliantly evoking the feel of the time and, through the eyes of each character, the feel of life itself. (back cover). 214pp, standard paperback. Unread; very slight page-edge browning; very good plus (no spine creases, no inscriptions, not ex-library).
