Publisher's Summary

Written before she began her experiments in the writing of fiction, Virginia Woolf's second novel, Night and Day, is a story about a group of young people trying to discover what it means to fall in love. It asks all the big questions: What does it mean to fall in love? Does marriage grant happiness? What is happiness? Night and Day is a conventional novel; however, it maps out for us the world of Virginia Woolf in its wondrous prose: For her it was the beginning, leading on to a prolonged engagement with her search for the means to express the "inner life".

"After all, what is love?"

Should we be dependent on whatever affections other people offer us? Or, shall we think our minds so as to figure out what feelings do we have for them? "After all, what is love?". These questions and more are lingering in the long pages of Woolf's novel, Night and Day. Not only is she able to provide her reader with a vivid description of the busy life of middle-classed individuals living in Victorian London, but she also delves deep into the inner world of her characters so that she could analyze their emotional conflicts. Katherine, Mary, William and Ralph each is trying to rejuvenate the meaning of love and to attach that meaning to what s/he perceives as " reality". Woolf's style leaves the reader amazed, if not puzzled, at her skillful depiction of the wide range of emotions human beings are capable of possessing.

Narration

While the story dragged on a little in this particular book, this only meant there was more of Juliet Stevens' beautiful narration to hear, so I was disappointed when it was over.
