Summary, etc.: Orlando is one of the most unforgettable creations of twentieth-century literature. He emerges as a young man at the court of Queen Elizabeth I and progresses, with breathtaking ease, through three centuries until, by now a woman, she arrives in the bustle and diversion of the 1920s. For Virginia Woolf, a leading figure of the Bloomsbury Group, Orlando was more than a fantastic flight of imagination. It was a roman a clef, a love letter for her lover, the charismatic, eccentric bisexual, Vita Sackville West. Orlando's journey, from wondrous youth barbed by love, to feted writer, settled in her femininity, is a wild and curiously relevant fable for our times.
