Abstract :

This paper seeks to define the notion of 'female sentence' and its use in one of the greatest experimental novels written by Virginia Woolf. As a modernist writer, her primary concern was to unshackle and dismantle the obsolete and meaningless institutions and values handed down to her from the past. She became successful in doing so with the novel form – with its formal features, its content as well as with its language. In this way, she contributed immensely to the development of the novel form by making it an inclusive form with female vision of life as an integral part of novel. This paper is a modest attempt which seeks to throw light on Woolf's views about the gendered sentence as she uses in her novel Mrs. Dalloway (1925).
