This assignment is due a week from Sunday, or March 26.
Write about satire. What is it? What is Woolf satirizing here? Hints: revisit Flaubert. Look up Vita Sackville-West, to whom the novel is dedicated. (If you want a really fun read and an intimate understanding of the VSW-VW relationship, have a look at her son Nigel Nicholson’s book Portrait of a Marriage.) Think about the art of biography with respect to the voice of Orlando‘s narrator; also think about writers as they are portrayed in the novel. Quote specific passages and how they succeed–or fail–as satire.
