Sažetak
In line with the most frequently used, and recently debated (Boehm-Schnitker and Gruss, 2014 ; Kohlke 2014), definition of neo- Victorianism proposed by Heilmann and Llewellyn in 2010, Peter Carey’s Oscar and Lucinda (1988) self-consciously throws light on little known aspects of the Victorian past in Australia. It tells, among other things, the tale of an unconventional mother and her daughter who wore bloomers – garments favoured by Victorian proponents of women’s rights and dress reform – and who shared a passion for factories. In the final lines the novel, we learn that the daughter is ‘known for more important things than her passion for a nervous clergyman. She was famous, or famous at least among students of the Australian labour movement.’ (515) However, Gillian Armstrong’s 1997 film adaptation chooses to foreground exactly the characteristic of Lucinda that Carey deems unimportant, as it highlights the romance and downplays the feminism. This paper analyses the effects of this change by focusing on the role that clothes play in the portrayal of Victorian gender roles and social rules in the novel and its adaptation.
