    twomoredays: If you don't read Mrs. Dalloway before The Hours, I suspect it wouldn't be nearly as fulfilling a reading experience.
    TammyMarshall: It gives you a much fuller appreciation of what Cunningham accomplished with his wonderful novel, "The Hours."

The Hours : A Novel by Michael Cunningham (2000)
  sharibillops | May 20, 2022 |
Although I don't usually like stream-of-consciousness or the use of historical figures as characters, I really enjoyed this book. Surprisingly, the author was able to make three ordinary days in the lives of the three women very compelling. I would have liked more insight from Leonard Woolf or Richard, whom I found the most interesting - besides Virginia, of course - but I suppose Michael Cunningham wanted to keep the focus on the women.

All I remember from watching The Hours is sobbing while watching Meryl StreepÛªs character, who I loved/hated, sob in her kitchen. This book feel beautiful and round and sad and true. Wish I‰Ûªd re-read Mrs. Dalloway first. ( )
  essarbee | Dec 25, 2021 |
This is one of my all time favorite books. For once, it was deserving of the Pulitzer Prize [so many PP winners don't live up to the hype and expectations]. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Wolf is the inspiration for the book, and that didn't really appeal to me. BUT IT WORKS! Along with Cunningham's prose, descriptions and feelings he portrays.

This book is like a favorite painting- how does one describe exactly what makes it all work? ( )
  JanEPat | Dec 7, 2021 |
Non so se definirlo una delusione, però questo libro mi ha lasciato parecchie perplessità.
Ma andiamo per gradi: l'idea è indubbiamente suggestiva, un romanzo scritto dal triplice punto di vista di una scrittrice, della sua protagonista e di una sua lettrice; ognuna di loro ha una personalità ben distinta ed è immersa in una diversa epoca storica, ma i problemi che affrontano sono universali e convergono tutti sull'accettazione di sé e la ricerca della realizzazione personale.
Interessanti anche i vari rimandi e collegamenti, che contribuiscono a farci percepire il legame spirituale fra queste tre figure apparentemente così diverse.
Tutto perfetto quindi? Sì ma fin troppo, perchè quel che ci ritroviamo tra le mani è un esercizio intellettuale e non un romanzo vero e proprio. Ogni particolare è studiato a tavolino, ogni parola è calibrata per creare una certa impressione: insomma un'opera tutta cerebrale a cui mancano il pathos e la spontaneità. Perfino lo stile è privo di identità, affascinante ma a ben guardare non è altro che la prosa della Woolf riveduta e corretta.
In conclusione un libro con tante qualità ma freddo, che non è riuscito ad entrarmi nel cuore. ( )

Cunningham gives you every chance to hear his echoes of Woolf's style: the whimsical similes, the rueful parentheses, the luminous circumstantial detail. And the narrative method is a homage to Woolf's novel. Each section imitates Mrs Dalloway by being restricted to the events of a single day, and follows the stream of one consciousness, only to leave it, for a sentence or a paragraph, for another....Imitation is fitting because Woolf's original novel was trying to do justice to the sharpness of new experience, even as it detonates old memories, and this endeavour is always worth trying afresh.
afegit per KayCliff | editaThe Guardian, John Mullan (Jun 24, 2011)
 
We don't have to read ''Mrs. Dalloway'' before we can read ''The Hours,'' and no amount of pedantic comparison-hunting will help us understand it if we don't understand it already. But the connections between the two books, after the initial, perhaps overelaborate laying out of repetitions and divergences, are so rich and subtle and offbeat that not to read ''Mrs. Dalloway'' after we've read ''The Hours'' seems like a horrible denial of a readily available pleasure -- as if we were to leave a concert just when the variations were getting interesting.

We'll hunt for a third tiger now, but like the others this one too will be a form of what I dream, a structure of words, and not the flesh and bone tiger that beyond all myths paces the earth. I know these things quite well, yet nonetheless some force keeps driving me in the vague, unreasonable, and ancient quest, and I go on pursuing through the hours another tiger, the beast not found in verse.
- J.L. Borges, The Other Tiger, 1960
I have no time to describe my plans. I should say a good deal about The Hours, and my discovery; how I dig out beautiful caves behind my characters; I think that gives exactly what I want; humanity, humour, depth. The idea is that the caves shall connect, and each comes to daylight at the present moment.
- Virginia Wolf, in her diary, August 30, 1923

Citacions

"We live our lives, do whatever we do, and then we sleep–it's as simple and ordinary as that. A few jump out of windows or drown themselves or take pills; more die by accident; and most of us, the vast majority, are slowly devoured by some disease or, if we're very fortunate, by time itself. There's just this for consolation: an hour here or there when our lives seem, against all odds and expectations, to burst open and give us everything we've ever imagined, though everyone but children (and perhaps even they) knows these hours will inevitably be followed by others, far darker and more difficult. Still, we cherish the city, the morning; we hope, more than anything, for more.
Heaven only knows why we love it so."
What a thrill, what a shock, to be alive on a morning in June, prosperous, almost scandalously privileged, with a simple errand to run.
It had seemed like the beginning of happiness, and Clarissa is still sometimes shocked, more than thirty years later, to realize that it was happiness; that the entire experience lay in a kiss and a walk, the anticipation of dinner and a book...What lives undimmed in Clarissa's mind more than three decades later is a kiss at dusk on a patch of dead grass, and a walk around a pond as mosquitoes droned in the darkening air. There is still that singular perfection, and it's perfect in part because it seemed, at the time, so clearly to promise more. Now she knows: That was the moment, right then. There has been no other.
Clarissa dislikes arrangements. She prefers flowers to look as if they've just arrived, in armloads, from the fields.
Virginia thinks of Leonard frowning over the proofs, intent on scouring away not only the setting errors but whatever taint of mediocrity errors imply.
