Timelines enables you to explore and create collections of Orlando’s event entries, short accounts of important moments in and relevant to literary history. Some (beginning with the phrase ‘Author event’) are extracted from author profiles; others are freestanding. The icon beside each entry indicates its event type, or immediate context: Women writers, Writing climate, Political climate, or Social climate.
Using the Date label and/or Event description search boxes, get started by entering date information (e.g. 2 February 1922) and/or keywords (including proper names, such as Sylvia Beach), to explore the collection, then click on any of the results for the full freestanding event entry or section of the author profile from which it’s taken.
Occasionally, glitches in how content interacts with search produce too few results or too many results. Such errors when we become aware of them are corrected in our regular content updates.
