EN - Orlando was given the book as a prize in the mid-1860s. It gives a rather idealized view of English country life. But Orlando lives in very different circumstances: on a settlement in the dusty landscapes of South Africa. Not much had really changed by the time that I grew up there over a hundred years later. All the books we read as children were written, published and illustrated in the United Kingdom and our earliest literary memories were of other places.
