Exploration on the ways in which gender becomes a fluid concept throughout Orlando and the aspects of the film that contribute to this.
This pathway traces the use of the falsetto in Orlando as a symbol of transformation/alteration in gendered meanings through its position as herald throughout the narrative. The voice acts as construct for the subsequent reversal of bodily gender norms. It highlights periods of transition or translation for Orlando.
An analysis of the relationship between the detailed and highly illustrative description within the original text and the shot choices and cinematography of the film adaptation. The approach of this pathway will be to seek connections between the various texts available to form a progressive train of thought, concluding with an assessment of the success of the translation of Woolf's work to the screen.
