Mrs. Dalloway

Other appearances

Mrs Dalloway also appears in Virginia Woolf's first novel, The Voyage Out, as well as five of her short stories, in which she hosts dinner parties to which the main subject of the narrative is invited:

  • "The New Dress" – a self-conscious guest has a new dress made for the event
  • "The Introduction" – whose main character is Lily Everit
  • "Together and Apart" – Mrs Dalloway introduces the main protagonists
  • "The Man Who Loved His Kind" – Mrs Dalloway's husband Richard invites a school friend, who finds the evening uncomfortable in the extreme
  • "A Summing Up" – a couple meet in her garden

The stories (except for "The Introduction") all appear in the 1944 collection A Haunted House and Other Short Stories, and in the 1973 collection Mrs Dalloway's Party.[18]
