Pulitzer Prize Winner. In The Hours , Michael Cunningham, widely praised as one of the most gifted writers of his generation, draws inventively on the life and work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters struggling with the conflicting claims of love and inheritance, hope and despair. The narrative of Woolf's last days before her suicide early in World War II counterpoints the fictional stories of Samuel, a famous poet whose life has been shadowed by his talented and troubled mother, and his lifelong friend Clarissa, who strives to forge a balanced and rewarding life in spite of the demands of friends, lovers, and family. Passionate, profound, and deeply moving, this is Cunningham's most remarkable achievement to date. Excerpt from The Hours by Michael Cunningham.

By the time she returns from her stolen hours at the hotel, Laura thinks of herself in terms of an indistinguishable trinity between the character of Mrs. Yes, she thinks, this is probably how it must feel to be a ghost. Woolf and Vaughan acknowledge the existence of a soul.

Because she endures, beyond those of her husband, her daughter and son, Laura is the metaphor for the soul that Vaughan acknowledges may live on, and is what animates and inspires Richard. The Third Tiger: Our Spiritual Soul. According to Mircea Eliade, every microcosm of humanity has a sacred center: Symbolic of the death of God in modern society, Laura Brown, like the Holy Spirit, endures, but loses her moorings in a society that lacks the other parts of the Trinity: God and Jesus Christ.

In our modern society, without a shared societal myth, we are forced to create our own or have others create them for us.
