Opis

Written for Virginia Woolf’s intimate friend, the charismatic writer Vita Sackville-West, Orlando is a playful mock ‚biography’ of a chameleonic historical figure, immortal and ageless, who changes sex and identity on a whim. First masculine, then feminine, Orlando begins life as a young sixteenth-century nobleman, then gallops through three centuries to end up as a woman writer in Virginia Woolf’s own time. A wry commentary on gender roles and modes of history, Orlando is also, in Woolf’s own words, a light-hearted ‚writer’s holiday’ which delights in ambiguity and capriciousness.
