    Past, present and future are brought together one momentous June day in An invitation to a party. While in the initial reading process, she recorded the following response to the aforementioned passages, I Woolf held a similar type of affectionate devotion for Madge at the age of fifteen as a young Clarissa held for Sally. Virginia Woolf surprises us; therefore, we should consider how she accomplishes this reversal.

Unlike Joyce's masterpiece, Woolf's female protagonist is an upper-class English woman living in Westminster who is planning a party for her husband, a mid-level Tory politician. Dalloway is a unique novel in that it takes place in a single day — a Wednesday in mid-June Sir William Bradshaw arrives with his wife, who announces that Septimus has killed himself.
