|Plot Summary of Orlando|
|"Orlando is the story of a young Renaissance British nobleman who fancies himself a poet. Spurned by a Russian princess, he becomes depressed, and goes into seclusion, forever working on the poem he believes will be his masterpiece. Later, his travels take him to a foreign war, during which he is transformed into a woman, and lives until the early twentieth century. Orlando's adventures, over a period of a few hundred years, both as a man and as a woman symbolize the versatility and staying power of true artists."
Judy Berman, Resident Scholar
