    Essays on the Self

    Woolf responds passionately to those writers – past, present – who deal honestly with the reader, who express their own variations on the ‘I am I’ – the selective vision of the finite self.

    Jacob’s Room

    The new dress and other stories

    As Mabel Waring takes off her cloak and steps into the drawing room of Clarissa Dalloway, she immediately realises that something is not right: her pale-yellow silk dress, which she has had specially made for the occasion, is clearly old-fashioned, dowdy and out of place. Everyone seems to be looking at her in dismay or mocking her appearance. Crushed at once by her insecurity, Mabel is pervaded by a sense of self-loathing, and feels utter revulsion for the social world she has tried so hard to impress. Written in 1924 and perhaps intended for inclusion in ‘Mrs Dalloway’, a book Woolf was working on at the time, ‘The New Dress’ is here accompanied by most of the short stories she published in her lifetime and six other posthumously published narratives that share the milieu and some of the characters of her celebrated novel.

    The years

    ‘The Years’ follows the lives of the Pargiters, a large middle-class London family, from an uncertain spring in 1880 to a party on a summer evening in the 1930s. We see them each endure and remember heart-break, loss, radical change and stifling conformity, marriage and regret. Written in 1937, this was the most popular of Virginia Woolf’s novels during her lifetime, and is a powerful indictment of ‘Victorianism’ and its values.
