Orlando: A Biography is a novel written by Virginia Woolf and first published in 1928.

The novel is a fictionalized biography of Orlando, a young 16th century nobleman who is mysteriously transformed into a woman. This transformation gives Orlando the ability to live without aging, allowing him to experience life from multiple historical perspectives.

His transformation challenges the gender conventions of society from the Elizabethan court to 20th century London. Mixing real and fantastical elements, Woolf proposes a journey where time and identity are fluid.

During the journey, Orlando will encounter historical figures and key events in British history. Along the way, he will reflect on concepts such as love, existence itself, and art.

"Heโ€”for there could be no doubt of his sex, though the fashion of the time did something to disguise itโ€”was in the act of slicing at the head of a Moor which swung from the rafters."
