      Like James Joyce’s Ulysses, Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway () is a novel set on a single day in a city in the middle of June. Woolf, who was re-reading Ulysses when she began to write her own book, chose 13 June , in London; Joyce had selected 16 June , in Dublin. But in making her central figure an upper-class middle-aged woman, married to a Conservative MP, Woolf staked out. Many of Virginia Woolf’s earliest dust jackets were designed by her older sister and fellow member of the Bloomsbury Group, the artist Vanessa Bell. “Your style is unique, because so truthful,” Woolf told her when some criticized the designs, “and therefore it upsets one completely.” Bell designed a total of 38 book covers for Hogarth.

      MRS. DALLOWAY is self-indulgent and tedious. But, then, it is by Virginia Woolf. The writing is almost poetic, and I understand the writing gift displayed on every page (goodness! Every paragraph). What a shame Woolf's gift is wasted on this book of fluffy air. Almost nothing really happens; we essentially begin where we end. Groan. Let’s start this discussion on Virginia Woolf books by looking at your biography of Woolf, you mention that when you were studying English literature as an undergraduate at Oxford University, there weren’t any lectures on Woolf, and as a graduate student, you were told that Woolf was a ‘minor modernist’, not to be classed with the likes of James Joyce, T. S. Eliot or D. H. Lawrence.

        Cunningham work, like Woolf’s, seeks to find a way to cope with the seemingly endless hours between the moments that make life wonderful. And are these moments, so precious and few. Genre/Form: Criticism, interpretation, etc: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Woolf, Virginia, Mr. Bennett and Mrs. Brown. London, L. and.
