Reading Orlando was a bit like watching Dallas. Remember when Bobby Ewing stepped out of the shower, when his wife Pam, woke up from a dream which lasted for hundreds of episodes? Nobody remembered her dream starting, but we were reliably informed by the press that what we had actually ... Read review

individual who has, at last, forged a place in
society for herself?

Dallas to Orlando, but never the Twain Shall Meet

AdvantagesPoetic descriptions

DisadvantagesNot very readable as a novel

"Reading Orlando was a bit like watching Dallas. Remember when Bobby Ewing stepped out of the shower, when his wife Pam, woke up from a dream which lasted for hundreds of episodes? Nobody remembered her dream starting, but we were reliably informed by the press that what we had actually witnessed for the past few months (or was it years?) was a very badly construed dream sequence that even the writers hadn’t envisaged at the beginning. And ..." Read review

An extroarodinary journey across time and genders

AdvantagesVery entertaining and delivers food for thought. Still right on the issues!

DisadvantagesCan't think of any.

"Virginia Woolf wrote Orlando in 1928 and dedicated this fantastic novel to her friend, Vita Sackville-West. As we know, Orlando is in fact a highly fictionalized biography of Ms. Sackville-West. The novel covers roughly 500 years during all of which Orlando is indeed alive (and rather young to boot). The story starts out with this statement: “He -- for there could be no doubt of his sex, though the fashion of the time did something to disguise it ..." Read review

Orlando- The Gender Bender

AdvantagesThis space is too small to jam them in.

DisadvantagesThis space is too large to fill with them.

"...'It was a change in Orlando herself that dictated her choice of a woman's dress and of a woman's sex.' Orlando becomes a woman in soul and so wakes up as a woman in body. This novel explores the issue of sexuality from both a male and female perspective, adding colour to this exploration by embodying both perspectives within the one person. Orlando grapples with the implications that society inflicts upon one gender or the other and stretches ..." Read review

all fronts for orlando

Advantagesthe historical period doesnt means it loses any significance

Disadvantagesyou might want to go straight for the great video interpretation

"...capabailites are not foreshadowing, instead, Orlando goes through the biggest individual change possible, he turns she and with that the world reaction to him changes with him. Masculinity takes the dominate form. Woolfs clever plot, shows us the line which traces the gender through theses times, and Orlando as a woman, is shown a definitve- non-negoitable way to behave, a manner, a taste, a regard, a caution. Virginia Woolf created a classic, ..." Read review
