Class Notes (Wk 7)

First Chapter of "Mrs. Dalloway"
no longer addressed as Clarissa, rather as Mrs. Dalloway
Mrs. Dalloway,
favoring reliability and fitting within the current social bracket,
meeting social standards and expectations, in contrast to
Peter Walsh, ex-lover, enigmatic and adventurous, out of the box, "poetic"

wanting to focus on psychological issues of someone of that status, without worries, but with many options
