      My mom made me clean my room this weekend No, not a teenage pain in the ass cleaning of the room, this was THE cleaning of the room As in, it was finally time to take apart the room I d had in that house since we moved there somewhere around my thirteenth birthday Look you guys, I get it I m twenty four That s another one of those Facts of Life that just happens to you, and most people would say I was far past time for this And you know what I was doing okay with it It went slowly, but it wasn t [...]

      I m sick to death of this particular self I want another Orlando to me is a dream come true in literature Being able to move in time and space and to change my gender with my moods is a deeply satisfying idea It is the quintessence of what reading means in my life the opportunity to leave my own life behind and step into the body and soul of other people, only to move on again when I feel like it I can be intensely engaged for a week, and then put the adventure safely into my memory and try some [...]

      This was my first time reading Orlando It was also my second time.I like to think that everything happens for a reason not that I believe it was planned or decided by a powerful creature for me but because the idea that everything effects what surrounds it sounds about right to me So I see a purpose in this reading experience that Virginia Woolf provided me and take it as an important lesson to carry with me from now on and how appropriate that it came just at the beginning of a new and exciting [...]

    4. Bookdragon Sean says:

      Woolf did not write this book for her readers she specifically wrote it for her close friend and fellow writer Vita Sackville West As such Woolf does things she would not normally do in her writing it is not at all serious but instead takes on the form of a literary homage, homage to reading and writing My case in point For it would seem her case proved it that we write, not with the fingers, but with the whole person The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fibre of our being, [...]

    5. Dolors says:

      Orlando might have been devised as a mere divertimento, as a playful attempt to challenge the established views on sexuality or as a fantastical tale to confront the history of East and West by questioning the boundaries of space and time, but to this reader this novella meant much It meant a universe of fluctuating moods, characters and sweeping poetry that gives reason to be through the act of reading.How to describe the nuanced melody of finely threaded irony prodigiously in tune with the mo [...]

    6. Violet wells says:

      My second reading of Orlando bore out my overriding impression the first time I read it that this is a brilliant comic performance until Woolf, before finishing, runs out of steam Towards the end it becomes apparent she s no longer in the same spirit with which she began the book What begins as pure parody ends up a serious attempt to understand her subject The delicious light skip of her lyrical irony no longer seems at the beck and call of her wit towards the end You can sense, even see that s [...]

    7. Samadrita says:

      The most prudent way to review a Virginia Woolf book, perhaps, would be to write THIS IS STUPENDOUS GENIUS AMAZING WHY HAVEN T YOU READ THIS YET and leave it at that Because not only does this relieve you of the responsibility of casting about for appropriate words to serenade Woolf but also because you know no review in the world does justice to the sheer magic that she is capable of creating with words.But since I have a thing for self flagellation not really , I wish to undertake precisely th [...]

    8. Rowena says:

      I absolutely adored this book The style is definitely different from the other Woolf books I ve read so far What stood out for me was the beautiful use of the language, maybe than the story The novel had an almost fairytale like feel to it, and I was definitely enchanted from the start.I don t think the following is a spoiler as it is included in the book s blurb this book is about a 16 year old boy, Orlando, a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, who one day wakes up to find that he has become a wo [...]

    9. Paul says:

      I first read this many years ago before I knew very much about Virginia Woolf and her relationship with Vita Sackville West, to whom this is dedicated The background is vital because it adds so much and because it helps the reader to reach an understanding of Woolf s generosity It is as ever, beautifully written and drifts splendidly through the centuries and the key is Vita and their circle As Woolf was writing this her affair with Vita was beginning to wane as Vita was moving on to other lover [...]

    10. Fionnuala says:

      I like nothing better than when two books I happen to be reading overlap, even if briefly, so I was really pleased when Virginia Woolf s fictional character, Orlando, suddenly mentioned Jonathan Swift, whose Journal to Stella I ve been reading recently Orlando, who in some sections of Woolf s book uses the title Lady Orlando, has just been receiving a visit from Joseph Addison, Swift s one time bosom pal and fellow political essayist, when there s an interruption.d when Mr Addison has had his sa [...]

    12. Miriam says:

      Orlando was much funnier than I expected, and much less fantastical Since I was familiar with the plot before beginning the book and had heard much literary criticism concerning the famed transformation, I was expecting the focus to be on gender issues While these were certainly present, Woolf presents them fairly gently Orlando is so strongly an individual that his her sex hardly matters from a readerly standpoint Indeed, I found it harder to believe that he was a successful ambassador than tha [...]

    13. Paul Bryant says:

      What s the connection between Virginia Woolf and the Russian mafia Easy in 1991 Sally Potter decided to film Orlando, one of the loveliest, most ravishing novels in the English language Somewheres in the middle of the story there, you have a truly extraordinary sequence about the remarkable Frost Fair of 1654, which was when the River Thames itself froze over and they erected a fair with stalls and games and rides and greased pigs and whatnot on it, a carnival of the utmost brilliancy right on t [...]

      My second Virginia Woolf book.This further improved my understanding of her work I loved this one too AfterTo the Lighthouseand this one, I have decided to read Mrs Dalloway in line to reach to a conclusion of my opinion about her books.Only after completing this third book of her, I ll write detailed reviews on her all three books

    15. Rakhi Dalal says:

      As always, Woolf has stunned me with the magic of her prose here Telling this isn t important, neither that it is a biography that it informs us about the affair of Vita and Violet I guess much has been said about that When I started reading, I had no idea about the references to people, places, their characters or their lives as are known to be mentioned in this work In fact, as the novel proceeded from Orlando s gender change for the first time, I had a notion about the invisible layer of narr [...]

    16. Madeline says:

      I finished this book about a week ago, and have been trying ever since to figure out how I m supposed to review it I honestly can t think of anything to say except this Every single emotion I ve ever felt and every thought I ve ever had, had already been felt and thought and written down by Virginia Woolf decades before I was even born There is not a single concept or feeling in any of her books that isn t already intimately familiar to me Reading her books is like having someone look into my ow [...]

    17. Sidharth Vardhan says:

      You know how people say that some books are ahead of their time I think Woolf s Orlando is a book which probably won t be understood for another decade or so.The sudden change of Orlando s sex and his several centuries old existence along with her very easy acceptance of those things rings of magical realism The fantastic bit that of Orlando s living through several centuries is used to develop the book into what looked like a poem on the spirit of Time Through different ages, Orlando tastes the [...]

    18. Aubrey says:

      Let it be known that, despite seeming evidence to the contrary in the form of my reviews, I do indeed have a sense of humor True, it is a small and desiccated thing, unusual in its feathering and tending towards the qualities of the morbid and the sadistic However, it delights in incongruity to the extreme, and what makes it laugh will win its love forever.This book could have simply tickled my fancies to the bone and nothing else and would still have won me over in a complete state of adoration [...]

      But what is the present moment What does it involve More than we know, of course It involves the self, we know Is that all we know Me here, writing on my couch, and you, you there But there is Here in this room there is A table, its wood, the details, labored, toiled upon for many hours, furnished from carpenters in years past in the great state of Maryland, land of our Great Queen Mary a beer sitting on the table, on a book on the table, sweltering, a Mexican beer it sits on Great Expectation [...]

      675 Orlando Orlando A Biography, Virginia WoolfOrlando A Biography is a novel by Virginia Woolf, first published on 11 October 1928 A high spirited romp inspired by the tumultuous family history of Woolf s lover and close friend, the aristocratic poet and novelist Vita Sackville West, it is arguably one of Woolf s most popular novels a history of English literature in satiric form The book describes the adventures of a poet who changes sex from man to woman and lives for centuries, meeting the k [...]

      Having read and not enjoyed or appreciated Virginia Woolf s To The Lighthouse 1927 it was with expectation, due to it s literary reputation, although some trepidation, due to my experience with Lighthouse , that I approached the markedly different Orlando A Biography 1928.The premise of the life of Orlando was always going to be a highly promising one beginning as it does with Orlando as a boy at the time of Queen Elizabeth I and following his adventures across different lands, and life of over [...]

      Are we so made that we have to take death in small doses daily or we could not go on with the business of living And then what strange powers are these that penetrate our most secret ways and change our most treasured possessions without our willing it Had Orlando, worn out by the extremity of his suffering, died for a week, and then come to life again And if so, of what nature is death and of what nature life Having waited well over half an hour for an answer to these questions, and none coming [...]

    24. Nicole~ says:

      Orlando lies in a bed of hot ideasWoolf designed a fantasy tale filled with allusions to Shakespearean plots and themes , breaking and reconstructing the boundaries of gender, race, sex, and social conformity, conjuring up the image of herself as Judith Shakespeare A Room Of One s Own that adventurous, imaginative scribbler with a flair for fiction, quill in hand creating the masterpiece that will teleport through the Ages Vita Sackville West was her muse for this semi biography which she descri [...]

    25. Sarah says:

      Vita Sackville West s son may have called Orlando the longest and most charming love letter in literature , but let me tell you if someone wrote me a love letter like this, their ass would be getting dumped shortly thereafter This book was like the song that wouldn t end it just goes on and on yet it isn t particularly lengthy without saying very much of interest Despite the fact that reading it was a serious chore, for whatever reason I couldn t just give up and toss it aside much like being un [...]

    26. Lynne King says:

      UPDATE The origins of Orlando can be seen in the entry in Virginia Woolf s diary of Tuesday, 20 September 1927 One of these days, though, I shall sketch here, like a grand historical picture, the outlines of all my friends I was thinking of this in bed last night, for some reason I thought I would begin with a sketch of Gerald Brenan There may be something in this idea It might be a way of writing the memoirs of one s own times during people s lifetimes It might be a most amusing book The questi [...]

    27. Helle says:

      Some weeks added a century to his age, others no than three seconds at most Altogether, the task of estimating the length of human life of the animals we presume not to speak is beyond our capacity, for directly we say that it is ages long, we are reminded that it is briefer than the fall of a rose leaf to the ground High spirited, poetic and fun, Orlando is Virginia Woolf s one off satirical romp of a novel, which she herself didn t really take seriously as she notes in A Writer s Diary but wh [...]

    28. ✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans) says:

      Bam This is me being hit by the The Greatness Syndrome again when a book is so original, thought provoking and fantastically written that there is nothing to say about it.Does this seem eerily similar to my Penelopiad review Oh well.

    29. Cecily says:

      Character living through 4 centuries The style switches between novel, biography, history and philosophy Jumps about between eras with no explanation of how and with major gaps in plot an early proponent of magical realism , clearly deliberate, but I found it irritating Some echoes of Dorian Gray the magical realism and some of the passages describing beautiful fabrics and artefacts.

    30. Edward says:

      This one is so different lively and light, much less intense than Woolf s other novels It s actually funny, filled with personal references and in jokes, and whimsical a very early example of what today we would call Magical Realism I was expecting lesser Woolf here, but I was pleasantly surprised Despite the less serious approach, the novel manages to be deeply emotional, complex and incisive It seems that Woolf couldn t help but create something wonderful, even when writing purely for amusemen [...]
