Description


Mrs. Dalloway, created from a series of short stories, is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Thematically it conveys a rich and genuine humanity, while technically it showcases Woolf's use of interior perspective. This edition provides a substantial introduction, including the composition history of the novel, documenting how Woolf's reading, writing, personal life and the world around her contributed to the book. Explanatory notes compile decades of scholarship while identifying numerous new allusions to Homer, Shakespeare, Tennyson and others. A complete list of textual variants compiles differences among all English editions of the novel published in Woolf's lifetime while the textual notes call attention to those variants of particular interest, including her substantial addition, at proof stage, to the scene of Septimus' suicide. This edition also includes the seldom-reprinted 1928 introduction, written by Woolf, along with a full chronology of composition, and a more general chronology of Woolf's life and works.
