"It Had No Voice to It": Sydney Pollack's Film Translation of Isak Dinesen's "Out of Africa."
Cooper, Brenda; Descutner, David
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v82 n3 p228-50 Aug 1996
Investigates the rhetorical implications of Sydney Pollack's translation of Isak Dinesen's autobiographical texts. Argues that Pollack's film uses strategies of transference, redefinition, antithesis, and displacement to renarrate Dinesen's writings, resulting in a depoliticized romantic adventure. Finds that these strategies misrepresent Dinesen, marginalizing pivotal elements of her texts and life, including her complex voice and unconventional beliefs. (PA)
