1. How does the author introduce Clarissa Dalloway?
It is the middle of June. Clarissa Dalloway, a woman living in the Westminster section London, is enjoying the beautiful weather and thinking about her absent friends.
2. What are Clarissa's thoughts on this June morning and what are some of the reasons that the world seems pleasant to her?
Clarissa notices the people on the streets, the fully blossomed trees and flowers, and observes how certain days are much like a kiss from a wave. The weather makes her feel as young as she did was she was 18 years old, full of life and promise. Clarissa thinks about the fact that the War is over, the King and Queen are nestled in the Palace, and although there are many things one may be unhappy about the truth is that the people there loved life. It was the middle of June so that it was time for garden parties, polo ponies and dancing all night.
