Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.





'The flower bloomed and faded. The sun rose and sank. The lover loved and went. And what the poets said in rhyme, the young translated into practice.'





Written for her lover Vita Sackville-West, 'Orlando' is Woolf's playfully subversive take on a biography, here tracing the fantastical life of Orlando. As the novel spans centuries and continents, gender and identity, we follow Orlando's adventures in love - from being a lord in the Elizabethan court to a lady in 1920s London.





First published in 1928, this tale of unrivalled imagination and wit quickly became the most famous work of women's fiction. Sexuality, destiny, independence and desire - all come to the fore in this highly influential novel that heralded a new era in women's writing.

Customer Reviews

A fascinating, odd yet accessible study of gender and society. But it doesn't labour the point; this is an introspective novel, not a didactic one. Nor is it cloyingly earnest. At times I felt it was lacking - maybe detail, strong emotion, direction - but that is countered by the simplicity of the understated storytelling.
