Alan Moore, in writing The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, volume 2, made just such a connection: the appendices to each issue of volume 2 featured the text of a fictional atlas, including adventures of many more characters. One such as the Orlando in question, explicitly combining the classic character with that of Woolf (as well as providing a slightly different source of his immortality: a mystical pool in Africa).

What "Venetian war"?
I just tried to figure out what war interrupted work on Orlando Innamorato and I couldn't figure it out. For now I wikified the Venice reference to the right time period (Republic of Venice) but that link should be replaced with a link to an article about the war itself, once someone figures out which war that is. 188.8.131.52 04:58, 7 December 2005 (UTC).
Is it a romance or an epic? Both? This article can't decide.
