This paper argues, that despite surface appearances, Mrs. Dalloway and Septimus are in fact parallels of one another, two mirror-images of the same whole soul, that of the author, Virginia Woolf. It also suggests that like the characters, people tend to conform to the social circumstances that they are born in, even if this does not make then happy.

From the paper:

"The parallels between Mrs. Dalloway and Septimus are not limited to their existence as reflections of their creator's inner consciousness, however. Woolf is a far more skillful narrator than simply recounting her own life piecemeal through the lives of her creations."
