    Orlando A Biography Review æ 107 Orlando A BiographyWoolf did not write this book for her readers; she specifically wrote it for her close “friend” and fellow writer Vita Sackville West As such Woolf does things she would not normally do in her writing; it is not at all serious but instead takes on the form of a literary homage homage to reading and writing My case in point “For it would seem her case proved it that we write not with the fingers but with the whole person The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fibre of our being threads the heart pierces the liver”“The taste for books was an early one As a child he was sometimes found at midnight by a page still reading They took his taper away and he

    Orlando A Biography Review æ 107 Orlando A BiographyThis was my first time reading Orlando It was also my second timeI like to think that everything happens for a reason not that I believe it was planned or decided by a powerful creature for me but because the idea that everything effects what surrounds it sounds about right to me So I see a purpose in this reading experience that Virginia Woolf provided me and take it as an important lesson to carry with me from now on and ho

    Orlando A Biography Review æ 107 Orlando A BiographyFun vibrant modern and rich with live Green in nature is one thing green in literature another Nature and letters seem to have a natural antipathy; bring them together and they tear each other to piecesGeneralThe sheer fun and vibrancy that Virginia Woolf brings in this book is tremendousI can only compare it to the typical English humor found while reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy the first few whimsical pages of The Once and Future King while the lyrical nature of the work made me think of Jeanette Winterson Finally Girl Woman Other popped up in my mind while reading this classic due to the same approach of large strides through time caught in flowing proseOrlando compelled me to read on through lush and flowy sentences putting thoughts of disbelief and historical accuracy far behind me Nowhere did the book feel like an almost 100 year old piece The Elizabethan age reimaginedThe omniscient narrator that I take to be Woolf spi
