Orlando is told by a third-person limited narrator who at times veers into omniscience. The narrator is identified as the biographer of Orlando's life story.
Orlando by Virginia Woolf is told in the past tense.
Orlando is the name of the subject of this fictional biography. It is an allusion to the Shakespearean character of Orlando from As You Like It, who also reflects gender fluidity. Orlando is likewise the name of the hero of Italian writer Ludovico Ariosto's epic poem, Orlando Furioso, who, like Woolf's Orlando, is a poet.
