Orlando: A Biography | Virginia Woolf
With an Introduction and Notes by Merry M. Pawlowski, Professor and Chair, Department of English, California State University, Bakersfield. Virginia Woolf's Orlando 'The longest and most charming love letter in literature', playfully constructs the figure of Orlando as the fictional embodiment of Woolf's close friend and lover, Vita Sackville-West. Spanning three centuries, the novel opens as Orlando, a young nobleman in Elizabeth's England, awaits a visit from the Queen and traces his experience with first love as England under James I lies locked in the embrace of the Great Frost. At the midpoint of the novel, Orlando, now an ambassador in Costantinople, awakes to find that he is a woman, and the novel indulges in farce and irony to consider the roles of women in the 18th and 19th centuries. As the novel ends in 1928, a year consonant with full suffrage for women. Orlando, now a wife and mother, stands poised at the brink of a future that holds new hope and promise for women.

Orlando: A Biography | Virginia Woolf
post image
Pickpick

This is a difficult book to review. It reminds me of being in college. It's full of layers & asides & just a million details, big & small, that made me think. Orlando's early days as a young man are set up as a clear contrast to her later days as a grown woman; at the same time they flow together naturally. It was a slow beginning, but when I found my flow, I found it. I didn't always enjoy it, but it's worth pondering & discussing more.

“Near London Bridge, a wrecked wherry boat was plainly visible, lying on the bed of the river where it had sunk last autumn. The old bumboat woman, who was carrying her fruit to market on the Surrey side, sat there in her plaids and farthingales with her lap full of apples, for all the world as if she were about to serve a customer, though a certain blueness about the lips hinted the truth."

Orlando uses gender and sexuality as a #costume in Virginia Woolf's masterpiece. Orlando switches from male to female during the course of their life. One of my favorites by her. 😍 It was certainly way ahead of its time, considering that it was written in 1928!

This #genrebusting classic is hard to describe! I just know I really loved the writing.
Inspired by and written for Woolf‘s lover and friend, writer Vita Sackville-West, its the ‘biography‘ of an Elizabethan poet who changes from a young man into a woman and lives for 300 yrs, never aging. And it‘s packed with wonderful reflections on writing, reading and gender.
Surreal, magical, satirical and so quotable, I was totally swept away.

"I'm sick to death of this particular self. I want another."

Orlando is a young man living in the 16th century who eventually undergoes a gender switch and lives the rest of her days (spanning ~300 years) as a woman. Sparkling prose and clever reflections on writing and gender. So much funnier than I was expecting! Loved it.

Prior to starting Orlando, Virginia Woolf terrified me. I found her intimidating. I‘d only read one of her novels, Mrs. Dalloway, years ago and I don‘t remember it well. Her reputation looms large and I was afraid of her.

Having finished Orlando, I‘m still afraid of Virginia Woolf.

Orlando: A Biography | Virginia Woolf

Mehso-so

This is a novel of time and gender. Orlando as male or female wishes only to be a great poet. Living for centuries, Orlando is acquainted with the heroes of literature throughout that time as well as the changing innovations and societal mores. This book is a conundrum.

Litsi I‘ll say. Need to read it again. 2y

Nebklvr @tournevis Yes, the beginning was a bit much. Wouldn‘t fly if released today, I hope 2y
Litsi I have read The Waves and Mrs Dalloway. They are each wonderful in the true sense of that word, but different from Orlando. In Dalloway in particular she uses a near- magical style that is economical and plush at the same time. Let‘s talk again if you read Dalloway and I‘ll tell you the three passages that on their own make it a masterpiece in my opinion. 2y
Nebklvr @Litsi I have Mrs Dalloway! Will let you know when I read it. Have read To The Lighthouse and loved it! 2y
Pandorazboxx I did an essay on Orlando in college. What I loved about it was that it was a love letter to Vita Sackville-West, fantasizing about ways they could be together. I need to pull it out and read it again! 2y
