Gillian Beer and Alexandra Harris discuss

In the first of two events for this year's 'Dalloway Day', renowned Woolf scholar Professor Dame Gillian Beer is joined by Alexandra Harris to discuss love and presence in Mrs Dalloway.

Now in its second year, ‘Dalloway Day’ is a celebration of one of the 20th century’s most important novels, and seeks to make Virginia Woolf and Mrs Dalloway to London what James Joyce and Ulysses are to Dublin with the annual ‘Bloomsday’.

Professor Dame Gillian Beer was the King Edward VII Professor of English Literature at the University of Cambridge from 1994 until her retirement in 2002. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Literature, and was made a Dame in 1998. Among her books are Virginia Woolf: the Common Ground and Alice in Space: the Sideways Victorian World of Lewis Carroll

Alexandra Harris is a writer and academic. Her books include Romantic Moderns, a biography of Virginia Woolf, and Weatherland: Artists and Writers under English Skies.

In partnership with The Royal Society of Literature
