Содержание:

Biographical Preface, Introduction, Orlando

Описание:

`I want to revolutionize biography in a night`. Virginia Woolf`s exuberant `biography` tells the story of the cross-dressing, sex-changing Orlando who begins life as a young noble in the sixteenth century and moves through numerous historical and geographical worlds to finish as a modern woman writer in the 1920s. The book is in part a happy tribute to the `life` that her love for Vita Sackville-West had breathed into Virginia Woolf`s own day-to-day existence; it is also Woolf`s light-hearted and light-handed teasing out of the assumptions that lie behind the normal conventions for writing about a fictional or historical life. In this novel, Virginia Woolf plays loose and fast: Orlando uncovers a literary and sexual revolution overnight.
