Example text

Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street’ 155–6) This elaborate, cumulative description of the luxury goods the street displays in Clarissa’s memories is composed of several syntactic, complex sentences. ] ‘That is all’ Mrs Dalloway repeated standing for a moment to look in at a window, at a glove shop, where, before the war, almost perfect gloves. And gloves she did And her old Uncle William used to say that a lady was known by her shoes & her gloves. (He had turned in his bed one morning in the middle of the war & said he had ‘I have had enough’) Gloves & shoes: but her own daughter, her Elizabeth, cared not a straw for either.

All these idiosyncratic features – pointed at, criticised, admired and emulated by other writers – form the wellknown fabric of the published novel. The aquatic fluidity of the street (the ‘river’ of Bond street [156]), the flowing stream of buildings, cars and people (‘The stream was endless – endless – endless’ [154]) parallels the internal movement of the character’s stream of consciousness indicating incessant musing and conflating many temporal layers and past events of her life.
