Saturday and Mrs. Dalloway: What McEwan and Woolf Have in Common

Eighty years after Virginia Woolf published Mrs. Dalloway, Ian McEwan took a page from her novel and created Saturday. In this course, we will read and discuss the relationship between both compelling novels – which both take place in one day and deal with the lives and lifestyles of affluent families living in London, though they are set 100 years apart. Both Woolf and McEwan create significant representations of their times, and the authors are keenly aware of the disparate classes in their societies; for the protagonists of both novels, that disparity presents moments of profound impact and reveals how vulnerable those characters are to the world around them.
