"Mrs. Dalloway" a novel by Virginia Woolf is hanging between spiritual yearnings and material desires of everyday life. The story follows Clarissa Dalloway, a 52-year-old woman living in London. Her husband Richard Dalloway is a member in parliament. The story is set in the summer in post WWI London and it revolves around a few days in the life of Mrs. Dalloway. She prepares to host a party to host a party for her wealthy and powerful friends. She meets with Peter Walsh, a man she nearly married, and who has spent the past five years in imperial India. Peter Walsh wonders about his plan to marry Daisy, the young wife of an Indian officer who already has two children with the other man. Peter has never really stopped loving Clarissa. The rest of the story involves her thoughts about that relationship and her life choices. The second element is Septimus Warren Smith cannot cope with what he has seen in the World War I. The two find themselves in similar situation. Later, Smith commits suicide. The third element is her present husband and his love for her. A very complex story of relationship that are entangled with each other but an easy read. All of the characters have rich inner lives that Woolf brilliantly brings to life in a complex web of meandering thoughts, desires, and everyday occurrences. Truths are subjective and changeable, as the plot streams back and forth in space and time. Woolf has beautifully described the relationship between man and woman. In the end, a complex, engaging, brilliant work and worth readings.
