Looking for Mrs Dalloway

Schols, Ethel LU (2018) ENGK06 20181
English Studies
Abstract
This essay examines the philosophical questions posed in Virginia Woolf’s famous novel Mrs Dalloway (1925) set in London in the aftermath of World War I. In her unique tone and poetic aesthetics, Woolf deals with questions about war and its aftermaths, evil and oppressive power, time and temporality, duality of life, fear of suffering and death, sacrifice and suicide but also, most importantly, love of life. By using a chorus of voices presenting the story through their inner monologues and streams consciousness, Woolf supports the theory of relativity that nothing can exist on its own, but only in relation to something else. There is no absolute truth, just a number of stories.
