As one of the representative works of the English writer Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway, which was created at the time of the rise of feminism and the idea of gender equality in the west, vividly shows the awakening and development of women’s consciousness. As a pioneer of modernism and feminism in the 20th century, Woolf put forward the concept of androgyny as an important concept of her feminist thought. At present, the description and presentation of androgyny in Mrs. Dalloway has not received enough attention. Therefore, this paper aims to analyze the feminine consciousness in Mrs. Dalloway based on the concept of androgyny.
This paper is divided into four parts. The first part introduces Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway, and the research status of this work; the second part introduces the concept of androgyny and feminine consciousness and the revision and enrichment of the concept of androgyny on the connotation of feminine consciousness in the aspects of women’s self-identity and gender differences; the third part, through the analysis of two typical characters Sally and Clarissa and plots from the aspect of the manifestation of male characteristics, the return of female characteristics and the integration of male and female characteristics, interprets the evolutionary process of the germination, suppression and awakening of feminine consciousness in pursuit of women’s independence and equality between men and women; and the fourth part is the summary part, explaining the theoretical and practical significance of interpreting women’s consciousness from the perspective of androgyny. It not only puts forward a new perspective for the study of women’s consciousness in Mrs. Dalloway, but also enlightens the realization of contemporary women’s awakening and liberation and gender harmony.
