  • "Orlando is destined to live for four hundred years. During the Elizabethan era, the young courtier Orlando becomes a lover to the aging Queen and embarks on an intense affair with the beautiful Russian Princess Sasha. Yet while Orlando can fulfil most of his desires, he never quite seems to fit in. Then one night, Orlando falls into a deep sleep and awakes transformed, emerging as a woman in eighteenth-century London."
  • "Singulier roman (1928) que ce portrait vivant d'un personnage dont l'écrivain retrace les principales étapes durant trois siècles, de la Renaissance à nos jours. Les temps varient, les situations se succèdent mais Orlando demeure le même ou peut-être la même puisque son corps est parfois féminin. Belle rhapsodie proustienne où scientillent les magies du souvenir."

  • "Orlando has always been an outsider. His longing for passion, adventure and fulfilment takes him out of his own time. Chasing a dream through the centuries, he bounds from Elizabethan England and imperial Turkey to the modern world. Will he find happiness with the exotic Russian Princess Sasha? Or is the dashing explorer Shelmerdine the ideal man? And what form will Orlando take on the journey - a nobleman, traveller, writer? Man or-- woman?"
  • ""Virginia Woolf's exuberant 'biography' tells the story of the cross-dressing, sex-changing Orlando who begins life as a young noble in the sixteenth century and moves through numerous historical and geographical worlds to finish as a modern woman writer in the 1920s. The book is in part a happy tribute to the 'life' that her love for Vita Sackville-West had breathed into Virginia Woolf's own day-to-day existence; it is also Woolf's light-hearted and light-handed teasing out of the assumptions that lie behind the normal conventions for writing about a fictional or historical life. In this novel, Virginia Woolf plays loose and fast: Orlando uncovers a literary and sexual revolution overnight."--Jacket."

  • "Orlando doubles as first an Elizabethan nobleman and then as a Victorian heroine who undergoes all the transitions of history in this novel that examines sex roles and social mores."
  • "Orlando is a fictional biography of a person called Orlando who lives over three hundred years from Queen Elizabeth's reign in the sixteenth century through to King Edwards reign in 1928, the year Virginia Woolf wrote the novel. In the beginning of the book Orlando is a nobleman who has literary ambitions. As a man he writes plays and poems every day of his life while courting some of his generation's most beautiful women. Everything changes when he turns into woman, and for the remainder, Woolf draws comparisons between the thought processes of men and women across the different eras."
  • "<Orlando</ follows the eponymous hero over three centuries of his lifetime, during which he ages only thirty-six years. In a setting that combines history and fantasy, Orlando falls into numerous adventures, including an affair with the elderly Queen of England and a passionate tryst with a Russian princess. Perhaps the most notable period of Orlando's life, though, is when he falls into a deep sleep and wakes up days later as a woman.</ <Orlando</ is a semi-autobiographical historical novel based on the life Virginia Woolf's lover, Vita Sackville-West. Woolf dedicates the novel to Sackville-West, and through it explores the concept of gender roles and the human condition. <Orlando</ has been adapted for both theatre and film, most notably in the 1992 feature film starring Tilda Swinton in the role of Orlando.</ HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

  • "Begun as a "joke," Orlando is Virginia Woolf's fantastical biography of a poet who first appears as a sixteen-year-old boy at the court of Elizabeth I, and is left at the novel's end a married woman in the year 1928. Part love letter to Vita Sackville-West, part exploration of the art of biography, Orlando is one of Woolf's most popular and entertaining works. This new annotated edition will deepen readers' understanding of Woolf's brilliant creation. Annotated and with an introduction by Maria DiBattista."
  • "Classic fiction. Orlando, deciding not to grow old, pursues his quest for passion, adventure, fulfilment and protracted youth. Chasing a dream through the centuries, he bounds from Elizabethan England and imperial Turkey to the modern world. Will he find happiness with the exotic Russian Princess Sasha? Or is the dashing explorer Shelmerdine the ideal man? And what form will Orlando take on the journey - a nobleman; gypsy; writer? Man or ... woman?"
  • "Orlando, a young nobleman and one of Queen Elizabeth I's court favourites, is the object of many ladies' attentions but, after suffering heartbreak, he prefers literary pursuits to entertaining any thoughts of marriage. Having obtained a ambassadorial post in Constantinople, Orlando falls into a long sleep and wakes up suddenly transformed into a woman. Also blessed with the gift of never ageing, she embarks on adventurous travels throughout Europe and the following centuries, observing what it is like to be female."
