Harcourt is proud to introduce new annotated editions of three Virginia Woolf classics, ideal for the college classroom and beyond. For the first time, students reading these books will have the resources at hand to help them understand the text as well as the reasons and methods behind Woolf's writing. We've commissioned the best-known Woolf scholars in the field to provide invaluable introductions, editing, critical analysis, and suggestions for further reading. These much-awaited volumes are the first of many annotated Woolf editions Harcourt plans on publishing in the coming years.This brilliant novel explores the hidden springs of thought and action in one day of a woman's life. Direct and vivid in her account of the details of Clarissa Dalloway's preparations for a party she is to give that evening,Woolf ultimately managed to reveal much more; for it is the feeling behind these daily events that gives Mrs. Dalloway its texture and richness and makes it so memorable.Annotated and with an introduction by Bonnie Scott

2.5 No Thanks
I'm totally over a barrel here. I thought Virginia Woolf's writing was spectacular. I didn't like most of the characters.I was satisfied with the since of place. Gosh, how I didn't like this story overall and I kept thinking 'Please let this end'.

2.0 Mrs. Dalloway
I thought it was boring. I got half way through and stopped because it doesn't fit my mood. I like the character Septimus Smith. It was not badly written at all. I just prefer active stories where things happen outside of the head as well as within. It's a great melancholic "let's think about this" ...

0.0 Mrs. Dalloway
This book confirms my suspicions that I should best read Woolf on holidays - just because I need pretty unlimited mental bandwidth for her writing. This is superb; I did not have the opportunity to fully enjoy it, since I was reading it at a moment I felt largely overwhelmed with work; I plan to rer...
