             Mrs. Dalloway is unique novel which takes place in a single day of the life of Clarissa Dalloway, an upper class woman in post-World War I England in mid-June 1923. She is getting ready to host a party that evening. The nice weather reminds her, her youth days in the countryside in Bourton and memories of an admired friend Sally Seton, whom in "the most exquisite moment of her whole life" had kissed (Woolf 30). Also memories of her old friend and suitor Peter Walsh, whom she rejected to marry Richard Dalloway come across her mind, which is interrupted by unexpected visit of Peter Walsh.
             Septimus Warren Smith, a veteran of World War I, is suffering from post war trauma and is deeply effected by the death of his inseparable friend- Evans. Septimus and his wife Lucrezia, spends their day in the park. Later that day, after he is prescribed involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital, he commits suicide by jumping out of a window.
             Clarissa hates Doris Kilman- history tutor of her 17 years old daughter Elizabeth. Doris despises Clarissa as well but has strong feelings for Elizabeth.
             Clarissa's party in the evening is attended by most of the characters in the book, including Sally Seton and Peter Walsh. She hears about Septimus' suicide at the party and somehow admires his act as an effort to preserve the purity of his happiness.
