Orlando: Women's Writing in the British Isles from the Beginnings to the Present includes biographical and writing career entries on British women writers, selected non-British or international women writers, and selected British and international men. Also includes dated items representing events and processes (in the accounts of these writers, but also in the areas of history, science, medicine, economics, the law, and other contexts). (OCLC)

Orlando: Women's Writing in the British Isles from the Beginnings to the Present is a new kind of electronic textbase for research and discovery. The first and largest component of a history of women's writing, it seeks to further the study and understanding of literature, focusing particularly on the part women have played in its development. The Orlando history of women's writing will eventually comprise, besides the detailed textbase on offer here, three overview volumes on early, Victorian, and modern writing by women. These volumes will be produced both in print and electronically, interlinked with the Orlando textbase contents, allowing readers to move between narrative overview and the detailed, dynamic information in the textbase.
