Sentencing Orlando

Steven Putzel

Edinburgh University Press

In this chapter, Steven Putzel introduces Roman Ingarden’s concept of satzdenken – the ‘flow of thinking the sentence’ – to examine the theatricality of Woolf’s sentences. Approaching his selected sentence through audience reception theory, Putzel also engages rich contextual material from Woolf’s preoccupation with Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre. His reading historicises textual variants between the first UK and US editions of Orlando, and stages for us his own analytic processing of the sentence – which included consulting the opinion of ‘a few grammarians’, who recommended he ‘rewrite the sentence’.

Keywords:   audience reception theory, grammar, textual variants, theatre, satzdenken
