HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘The flower bloomed and faded. The sun rose and sank. The lover loved and went. And what the poets said in rhyme, the young translated into practice.’

Written for her lover Vita Sackville-West, ‘Orlando’ is Woolf’s playfully subversive take on a biography, here tracing the fantastical life of Orlando. As the novel spans centuries and continents, gender and identity, we follow Orlando’s adventures in love – from being a lord in the Elizabethan court to a lady in 1920s London.

First published in 1928, this tale of unrivalled imagination and wit quickly became the most famous work of women’s fiction. Sexuality, destiny, independence and desire – all come to the fore in this highly influential novel that heralded a new era in women’s writing.

“A hilarious faux-biography of gender swapping”

Orlando was my 5th read Virginia Woolf book, but I personally think it would be a great option for a first-Woolf given its relatively straight forward narrative structure and wonderful humour.

“Contorted Prose”

Orlando was written in 1928 but the contorted style of prose makes it feel 18th century. Actually Dracula is better from a prose style point of view. Anyway, I loved the fairytale quality of the story but think... More
