Overview

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. The latest generation of titles in this series also feature glossaries and visual elements that complement the classic, familiar format.

In CliffsNotes on Mrs. Dalloway, you explore one of Virginia Woolf’s greatest works, which is about life, love, friendship, and acceptance. Here, you meet Clarissa Dalloway as she’s preparing for a party she will host that evening; and Septimus Smith, a shell-shocked war veteran struggling with the aftereffects of going to battle.

This study guide carefully walks you through every step of a day in the life of Clarissa and Septimus by providing summaries and critical analyses of each chapter of the novel. You'll also explore the life and background of the author, Virginia Woolf, and gain insight into how she came to write Mrs. Dalloway. Other features that help you study include
