  • "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."
  • "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</ 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.

  • "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 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."
  • ""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."
