Orlando by Virginia Woolf

Ive read the book. Ive seen the movie. Can anyone tell me what greek myth the story is based on, or what character in the greek pantheon?

Please. Thank you.

Props to you for getting through that book, I found it very uneven and farcical.

I think the Orlando character is based on Tiresias, the blind soothsayer who becomes a woman, and Euphrosyne, Orlando's "fiance", is based on the Greek goddess of mirth and merriment.

Haven't seen the movie, yet.

Did you enjoy either one, or is this a homework assignment?

I fist saw the movie......I think I was around 13 or 14. Then later on in High School I read the book.

Well, the movie, when I first saw it blew my young mind. I really liked both.
