As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate young noblewoman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry filled with the colourful delights of Queen Elizabeth’s court. By the close, he will have transformed into a modern woman and and three centuries will have passed. Orlando is Woolf’s most extraordinary creation, and through him we see an intimate portrait of history in the making.
