The Evolving Manuscript: From The Oak Tree to Death of A Lover by Caitlin Falco, Student

After looking through multiple drafts of the script, I noticed that the title of Orlando\'s manuscript changes twice. It begins as \"The Oak Tree,\" but evolves into \"The Death of Hercules,\" and finally becomes \"Death of a Lover.\" What is the significance of each of these titles in relation to the film? Had Sally Potter kept one of the original titles, would we have drawn the same conclusions about the manuscript, and its relationship to other themes in the film?

Description Page 151 of rough draft of scene 149. Hand written in black ink with pen annotations.
