‘I’m sick to death of this particular self. I want another.’

Roundly considered Woolf's most playful work, Orlando is the 'biography' of a unique individual; a protagonist epic that experiments with form and character to create a work whose search for satisfaction, for a full and all-encompassing life, is entirely unbound by convention. Starting out as an Elizabethan boy, Orlando travels through distant lands and through centuries on a quest to find self-expression, before becoming a twenty-first-century woman writer.

Conceived as a cryptic love letter from Woolf to Vita Sackville-West, Orlando is an ambitious and revolutionary epic that experiments with form and character to create a work that is at once challenging and exuberant. Behind the quiet confidence of Virginia Woolf's stream-of-consciousness prose was a tumultuous and tragic personal life.

A member of England's influential Bloomsbury Set, she died by suicide in 1941. Her position as one of the greatest ever female, and modernist, writers is incontestable.
