Description

This study of Virginia Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway" should be read as a companion to the novel, as it helps clarify the shifting and often confusing points of view. Point of view in Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway" is indispensable; alter it and the entire structure collapses. Through detailed, extensive analysis of Woolf's point of view techniques using the original text and Woolf's own writings, the work demonstrates how Woolf systematically uses point of view on both the micro and the macro level in order to communicate her entire novelistic structure. Woolf's use of point of view supports character, pacing, tone, metaphor, motif and theme. At all times, at all levels - close and distant - point of view, structure, method, design and intent are aligned.
