My final is about the difference between the book and the movie “The Outsiders.” This next paragraph is about the description difference between the book and movie. Then the paragraph after that will be about the description of the background or cars that the characters drive or live in. I think that the move and the book where basted of the same story but I think that when the directors made the movie with some different cars or house that can change the movie or they put different things in it so that the movie will look better. Altogether the movie and the book were pretty good and had good meaning to it about want to think of life and it’s alright to not be tough and hard.
For example, in the book, when Inigo and Fezzik visit they have to go through many hardships in the Zoo of Death. Arabian Garstini, a very dangerous snake, is one of the animals in the Zoo of Death. Suddenly it starts coiling around them “and the fourth coil, the final coil, [coils around their] throat” which is terrifying. This builds a lot of tension and causes the readers to really get involved in the story. But, in the movie, there is no Zoo of Death and Fezzik and Inigo easily go inside the Pit of Despair.
The setting is illustrated in Southside Chicago and shows the struggle of a black family trying to prejudices when wanting to become successfully wealthy. Between these 2 excerpts, they show that their lives are similar, but have more differences in fulfilling their American Dream. A Raisin in the Sun and The life of Fredrick Douglass have many similarities in regards to their dream. Fredrick and Walter both find their American Dream through different situations, but have meaning to them.
Both versions of A Raisin in the Sun are parallel in that the unique relationships between the characters and the vibrant personalities of each character are portrayed similarly. The elements of the plot structure – the exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution - were also remained constant in both versions of A Raisin in the Sun. In both the play and the movie, we can see that the unique relationships between the communications between characters are portrayed in similar tones and body languages. They argue about the same things and resolve their problems in similar ways. For example, when Beneatha and Walter’s conflicting dreams are threatened by how a sum of money would be spent – Walter wants to be a business man and thus use the insurance money to invest in a liquor store, while Beneatha hope that the money would be put into the bank for her studies
Yet the distinct differences between them also affect the plots to an extent to which the suspense in the movie is less compared to the novel. Although the differences greatly alter the two, it makes each of them unique and exclusive from each other. Despite these differences, there is one theme that links both the novel and the movie together: that people with different personalities, interests, and appearances are also the same to each other. The book shows more examples of this theme than the movie, making the novel more understanding to other individuals than the film itself. Because of this, we would recommend the book and film to those who experience a likeliness to the conflicts in each storyline, such as a fight between two different social

A Raisin in the Sun addresses major social issues such as racism and feminism which were common in the twentieth century.

“A Raisin in the Sun,” written by Lorraine Hansberry in 1959, was the first play ever produced on Broadway by an African-American woman and was considered ground-breaking for it’s time. Titled after Langston Hughes’ poem “Harlem,” sometimes known as “A Dream Deferred,” the play and the subsequent film adaptations are honest examinations of race, family, poverty, discrimination, oppression and even abortion in urban Chicago after WWII. The original play was met with critical praise, including a review by Brooks Atkinson of the New York Times where he wrote, “For A Raisin in the Sun is a play about human beings who want, on the one hand, to preserve their family pride and, on the other hand, to break out of the poverty that seems to be their fate. Not having any axe to grind, Miss Hansberry has a wide range of topics to write about-some of them hilarious, some of them painful in the extreme.” The original screen adaptation released in 1961 was highly acclaimed in its own right, and was chosen in 2005 for preservation in the United States of America National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for its cultural and historical significance.
