Orlando (Roads Classics)

Virginia Woolf

PAPERBACK

September 1, 2014

Roundly considered Woolf's most playful work, Orlando is the biography of a unique individual; a protagonist 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.

About the Cover: The Four Directions by Alice Maher celebrates the snail: self-sufficient, hermaphrodite, visceral, a creature of the undergrowth. Like Orlando, the sculpture draws us to emerging identities.
