Orlando: a biography – en inglés
As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate sixteen-year-old nobleman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry, filled with the colorful delights of Queen Elizabeth I’s court. By the close, three centuries have passed, and he will have transformed into a thirty-six-year-old woman in the year 1928. Orlando’s journey is also an internal one—he is an impulsive poet who learns patience in matter of the heart, and a woman who knows what it is to be a man.
Virginia Woolf’s most unusual creation, Orlando is a fantastical biography as well as a funny, exuberant romp through history that examines the true nature of sexuality.
First published on 11 October 1928. A semi-biographical novel based in part on the life of Woolf’s lover Vita Sackville-West. The novel has been influential stylistically, and is considered important in literature generally, and particularly in the history of women’s writing and gender studies.
