The events of the story occupy a single June day in post-World War I Central London, as wealthy and fashionable society hostess Clarissa Dalloway is preparing for a party she is to give that evening. Through her thoughts and memories, the voices of others who have touched on her life and will attend her party, Virginia Woolf shows her genius as a writer who is both accessible and popular.

Still Applies to Today
Phyllida Law was a fantastic narrator for Mrs. Dalloway. Her reading of it made the novel flow perfectly and she helped me understand more of the novel because of her expert reading.
Mrs. Dalloway could still be applied today. The characters are so relatable and their problems are common. This novel tells a beautiful tale of life as we all know it and the trials we go through.
My favorite character as performed by Phyllida Law was Clarissa Dalloway. Clarissa seems at first to be a simple character but due to the reading by Phyllida Law we are able to see much more of the complications in Clarissa's life.
