“But this question of love (she thought, putting her coat away), this falling in love with women. Take Sally Seton; her relation in the old days with Sally Seton. Had not that, after all, been love?”
Woolf, Virginia. Mrs. Dalloway. New York: Harcourt Inc., 1925
Here again, as we can see it several times in the novel, it’s interesting and still surprising to see how casually an important question -if she loved a woman- followed by memories, comes to Clarissa’s mind just as she comes home and gets off her coat.
