Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street

Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street

by Virginia Woolf (Author)

Mrs. Dalloway in Bond Street is a story by Virginia Woolf published in 1923. The work is full of reflections on the British society of the time and begins by describing Clarissa Dalloway, lady of English high society. Clarissa, (wife of a politician, member of the House of Lords) leaves home to buy a pair of French gloves. From here on it will be a succession of meetings and intimate reflections of Mrs.Dalloway on life, death, on the detached English society. The story is written in a very original way.  and the writer often makes a mockery of all the clichés and social conventions that tend to debase the human soul and generally deprive it of freedom of expression. In a highly conventional and conventional world, in fact, it is always very difficult to express oneself for what one really is.
