The Day of Orlando

The Day of Orlando

(p.128) Chapter 10 The Day of Orlando
Sentencing Orlando

Bryony Randall

Edinburgh University Press

In this chapter, Bryony Randall addresses ideas of temporality, writing and delivery, in which ‘the present moment’ is revealed at the end of the book to be its publication date, ‘Thursday, the eleventh of October, Nineteen hundred and Twenty Eight’. Showing how the concept of the day is as important to Orlando as its excursion through a time-span of 400 years, Randall draws on recent theories of narrative temporality, dailiness and the novel to make a compelling case for Orlando’s ‘final resolution into a concentrated, extended description of a single day as a key part of the text’s undoing of traditional history’.
