Orlando (1928) by Virginia Woolf
Publisher: Vintage Books
As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate young nobleman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry, filled with the colourful delights of Queen Elizabeth’s court. By the close, he will have transformed into a modern woman and three centuries will have passed. Orlando is Woolf’s most extraordinary creation, and through him we see an intimate portrait of history in the making. Orlando’s journey will also be an internal one – he is an impulsive poet who learns patience in matters of the heart, and a woman who knows what it is to be a man. Orlando is a funny, exuberant tale that examines the very nature of sexuality.
