    Post Mrs Dalloway-Mrs Ramsay

    The female element in Virginia Woolf's best known novels "Mrs Dalloway" and "To the Lighthouse" is well exemplified by the main characters, Clarissa Dalloway and Mrs Ramsay. I find the character of Mrs Ramsay more fascinating, intriguing and modern than that of Mrs Dalloway. This evanescent and misterious figure of woman reminds me of some impressionistic paintings. Who agree with me in considering Virginia's character similar in some aspects to some impressionistic paintings and Virginia's writing style impressionistic itself?

    I completely agree about Mrs. Ramsey is way more fascinating than Mrs. Dallowat. I'm actually not that big a fan of that novel, but I think To The Lighthouse is one the greatest of novels in English.

    Books are embalmed minds.
