Narrative Voice in Orlando by Harriet Taberner, Student

Initially, Sally Potter had the narrative of Orlando living each moment as the present. For instance Orlando in 1592, tells the story as if it were 1592; the Orlando in 1700 tells the story as if it were 1700, etc. However, later this changed and bore more resemblance to Virginia Woolf's prose. The film took on the structure of memories, the present being 1992. Therefore, the narrative of the film did not alter with the aging/ developing of character. The narrator of the film is the female mother Orlando, and thereby tone and language differs from the language of a young boy. In the part of "Death" we can see many differences between Potter's shooting script and the finalized version in her process of adapting Virginia Woolf's novel "Orlando".
