Both books raise the significant question as to whether we should seek to explore the stories individually as singular entities, or attempt to comprehend them as a totality by examining their shared forms and themes and/or identifying the “essential” properties of a Woolfian short story. In this chapter, I also attempt, while pointing to the range and variety of the short stories, to identify connections between them. These common strands include the significance of stories (such as “The Mark on the Wall,” “Kew Gardens,” and “An Unwritten Novel,” written in the late 1910s and early 1920s) for Woolf’s experiments with novelistic form, the use of the short A Companion to Virginia Woolf, First Edition.

After the stories linked to the writing of Mrs. Dalloway, there were some 16 stories written between 1926 and 1941. These include scenes and sketches – “The Fascination of the Pool” and “Three Pictures” – as well as more fully narrativized short stories, such as “The Duchess and the Jeweller” and “Lappin and Lapinova” (both stories started some years before their final publication). A number of the stories written in this later period (around the 1930s) share the preoccupations of the earlier ones, written between 1917 and 1921, in that they return to, and extend, questions of consciousness and, in particular, the nature of reflection (as explored in, for example, “The Mark on the Wall”), opening up images of the mind as a mirror, and the doubled worlds created by the reflective surfaces of looking glasses and pools.
