We will discuss  "Orlando", a novel by Virginia Woolf

Orlando: A Biography was first published in1928.
The book playfully constructs the figure of Orlando as the fictional embodiment of Woolf’s
close friend and lover, the aristocratic poet and novelist Vita Sackville-West.
It is one of Woolf's most popular novels: a history of English literature in satiric form.
The book describes the adventures of a poet who changes sex from man to woman and lives for centuries, meeting the key figures of English literary history.
 Considered a feminist classic, the novel indulges in farce and irony to consider
the roles of women in the 18th and 19th centuries.

For practical reasons attendance is limited to 14
