Virginia Woolf

Orlando: A Biography

Orlando: A Biography is an influential novel by Virginia Woolf, first published on 11 October 1928. A semi-biographical novel based in part on the life of Woolf's lover Vita Sackville-West, it is generally considered one of Woolf's most accessible novels. The novel has been influential stylistically, and is considered important in literature generally, and particularly in the history of women's writing and gender studies. A film adaptation was released in 1992, starring Tilda Swinton as Orlando and Quentin Crisp as Queen Elizabeth I.

    Pardon me, but this is a bullshit. I know that I'm not a writer and a critic neither, however this book was absolutely nonsense to me, hold on, but there is some shock, emotions, intrigues in the nonsense, so this book is worse than a nonsense. With all respect to an author, but it's not worthy of reading. Nowadays there is an standard that called gender equality, and indeed there is, so this book is worthless in perspective of whatever the author thought it would be a issue to vivid gender inequality

    No one is better at this than Virginia. But really a poem. Funny and profound. We must be kinder to each other. We have all been here before.Dizzying ride.

    nature, who delights in muddle and mystery, so that even now (the first of November 1927) we know not why we go upstairs, or why we come down again, our most daily movements are like the passage of a ship on an unknown sea, and the sailors at the mast-head ask, pointing their glasses to the horizon; Is there land or is there none? to which, if we are prophets, we make answer ‘Yes’; if we are truthful we say ‘No’; nature, who has so much to answer for besides the perhaps unwieldy length of this sentence
