Reviewer: John W. Crawford, (New York Times Book Review)

"Virginia Woolf is almost alone...in the intricate yet clear art of her composition. Clarissa's day, the impressions she gives and receives...capture in a definitive matrix the drift of thought and feeling in a period, the point of view of a class, and seem almost to indicate the strength and weakness of an entire civilization....Clarissa...is conceived so brilliantly, dimensioned so thoroughly and documented so absolutely that her type...might be said to have been done 'inviolably and for all time'."

"The cinema-like speed of the picture robs us a great deal of the delight of Mrs. Woolf's style. It has to be a little clipped, a little breathless; and the reading of her book is not so easy as it seems. Her wit is irresistible. In the end no one will complain of her for using all the freedom that she can. All her technical suppleness is needed to cope with the new form. It remains experimental in so far as we are uncertain what more can be done with it, and whether it can give the author's rare gifts full play. But something real has been achieved."
