The events of this novel occupy a single June day in central London. Clarissa Dalloway, the wealthy and fashionable wife of a Member of Parliament, is preparing for a party she is to hold that evening.
In this vivid portrait of one day in a woman's life, Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the last minute details of a party she is to give that evening, while in her mind she is much more than a perfect society hostess. As she redies her house she is flooded with memroies and, met with the realities of the present, Clarissa re-examines the choices she has made, hesitantly looking ahead to growing old. Undeniably triumphant, this is the inspired novelistic outline of human conciousness.
