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 amd 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?

This edition is based on the original British (Hogarth) edition, and is edited by Brenda Lyons with an introduction and notes by Sandra M. Gilbert. Contains illustrations, explanatory footnotes, an index, suggestions for further reading of acclaimed criticisms and references, as well as a discussion of the textual notes and substantive emendations in the appendix.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Magical, Critical This novel is must-read for any student or enthusiast of literature, and this beautiful edition is the perfect addition to any bookshelf. By spanning centuries, Woolf offers readers a history of English literature in a beautifully satiric form. The quick wit allows for several laugh-out-loud moments as well as a harsh (yet hilarious) critique of gender conventions. Indeed a feminist classic, this novel is a phenomenal piece of writing by a brilliant author.
