Orlando was born in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and lived into that of George V. He entered life as a boy and she left it as a woman. One of the most colourful creations of Virginia Woolf. Based upon Woolf's real-life love interest, Vita Sackville-West, Orlando shares many of West's qualities: most significantly, a deep reverence for history and family tradition, and a poetic, brooding nature. In her diary, Virginia Woolf wrote that Orlando was meant to be "Vita, only with a change about from one sex to another."
