Yet clearly, however 'biographical' some of Woolf 's material is, Orlando is much
more in the nature of an exploration and explosion of the assumptions and
conventions of biography - what we might call a mock-biography or a meta-
biography. She wrote to Sackville-West that in writing the title Orlando: A
Biography 'it sprung upon me how I could revolutionise biography in a night' (
Woolf, 1977, vol.3, p.429). However unorthodox, Orlando grew out of a long-
standing and serious interest ...

Orlando: A Biography (1928) Orlando is considered 'the longest and most
charming love letter in literature', and is dedicated to Woolf's lover Vita Sackville-
West. Woolf conceived of it as 'an escapade after these serious poetic
experimental books'. She wanted 'the main note' of this mock biography to be '
Satire'; '– satire and wildness'. And the target of the satire is to include her 'own
lyric vein' (D3 131). 'Half laughing, half serious; with great splashes of
exaggeration' (D3 168), the ...

She undermines the supposed faithfulness of a biography toward its subject by
presenting false photographic evidence. [...] The caption beneath a photo of
Sackville-West [...] reads, »Orlando on her return to England« [...]. Woolf asks the
reader to identify Sackville-West as Orlando and accept the photograph as
evidence of Orlando's existence. Although we may recognize Sackville-West in
the photograph, we must simultaneously perceive her as Orlando. The difficulty in
reading the ...

Considered by many literary critics a key text in feminism and, undoubtedly, a
significant Modernist text, Orlando: A Biography (1928) especially challenges the
readers' understanding of three key concepts in fiction: time, setting, and
character. Although Woolf had already successfully questioned the function of
these concepts in her novels Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, Orlando
generated a few unexpected twists of its own: For a book conceived by Woolf as
a “writer's holiday,” ...
