ORLANDO

À propos

Virginia Woolf's most unusual and fantastic creation, a funny, exuberant tale that examines the very nature of sexuality.

WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY PETER ACKROYD AND MARGARET REYNOLDS As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate young nobleman 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, thirty-six-year-old woman and three centuries will have passed. Orlando will not only witness the making of history from its edge, but will find that his unique position as a woman who knows what it is to be a man will give him insight into matters of the heart.

The Vintage Classics Virginia Woolf series has been curated by Jeanette Winterson and Margaret Reynolds, and the texts used are based on the original Hogarth Press editions published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf.

Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf est née en 1882. Mariée à l'économiste Leonard Woolf, elle a fondé avec lui la maison d'édition Hogarth Press. Ses romans et ses articles ont fait d'elle l'une des figures les plus importantes de la littérature de l'entre-deux-guerres. Sujette à des crises nerveuses fréquentes et craignant de perdre la raison, elle mit fin à ses jours en 1941. Elle était membre du Bloomsbury Group, un groupe d'artistes auquel appartenaient E.M. Forster et J.M. Keynes.
