If you go to the theater you will have a good idea of how the storyline will go but what you don’t know is how the director and producers will interpret it. The book was good and I wasn’t sure what to expect from the movie, since the filmmakers always change or omit something from the book. Of course, there were many differences between film and book, but as a whole the movie stayed true to the novel. There were several differences in the movie that I could notice, and one of them was the character traits and personalities. Starting out with Tris, one of the differences was the number of fear landscapes.
He justifies that by reading a fiction novel and later moving into more challenging works, people can further the boundaries of their knowledge. However, as Carter saw, most do not perceive it that way. In this prose, Stephen Carter uses rhetorical devices such as: allusion, anecdote, and humor, to delineate how the amount of reading has decreased. In this work, Stephen L. Carter alludes to Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This is shown by the quote, “The more of us who reduce reading to no more than an unpleasant obligation, the faster we descend toward the world of Ray Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451.” His analogy to this novel provides a clear illustration of how Carter envisions society’s future without reading.
Many people wonder why us teens enjoy dystopian movies and literature. Our reasons why we enjoy these kind of films and books are because it interest us, it makes us to think outside the box, it shows us a different lifestyle to live. For examples like the book “Anthem” by Ayn Rand and the movie “The Giver” by Philip Noyce. The movie and film both have a dystopian setting. For their dystopian ideas they both made them having some kind of rebel, who believes in more than just black and white or normal.
It is often believed that pictures speak louder than words. However, when comparing a book to a movie, this quote is totally not applicable. The purpose of creating a movie from a book is mainly to bring the characters to life and make the story more relatable. Fantasies, especially, are unrealistic and hence a movie makes the fantasy come to life. The Princess Bride was originally a book which was then filmed as a movie to recreate the story.
When I first began reading Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, I thought that it would be the same story as other dystopian pieces of literature; however, after further analyzing the novel I found that Bradbury used many allusions from famous pieces of literature. These allusions show foreshadowing, irony, and the main character, Guy Montag’s thoughts about the totalitarian government in Fahrenheit 451. Throughout Fahrenheit 451 several allusions are made to pieces of literature or to historical figures. Bradbury uses these allusions to foreshadow events in the story. “‘Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out’” (Bradbury 65).
Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, is seen as a true piece of American Literature that presents itself at the core of McCarthyism in the bitter wake of Communists spies inside the United States. In many cases the main character of Abigail Williams is considered secondary to that of John Proctor. However, many years later, Miller writes a screenplay for the 1996 film adaptation starring Hollywood heavyweights like Winona Ryder; whose portrayal seems to allow the character of Abigail to have more room to expand. It is to my opinion that the author does this to present a more rapid and truthful motif that differs from that of the 1950 ‘witch hunt’ for communists. It is shown in the differing aspects of Abigail’s character from play to screen,
When Shakespeare wrote his popular play, Macbeth; who would have thought that it would still have an impact on our society today? However, it has been used as the foundation of many modern day works. A recognizable example of this is Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith directed by George Lucas. This movie mirrors the same basic plot line, therefore creating many parallels between characters. One such parallel exists between Macbeth and Anakin Skywalker, but it’s not just a copy and paste, there are some key differences.
Though very different in subject, Shusterman uses the same literary techniques to show that it is his writing, and to move the plot forward and express the themes he wants to showcase. Just as left-behind fingerprints can be used to find people, Neal Shusterman leaves behind literary “fingerprints” in his novels, such as allusion, so that the reader can identify his writing. For example, he alludes the well-known movie, The Wizard of Oz. On page six of Full Tilt, Blake mentions that he “still can’t watch that movie without getting a sick feeling in [his] stomach, like it’s [his] own house spinning inside of a tornado.” This is used to explain that Blake feels like his family and home has become a chaotic mess. Another time that Shusterman alludes The Wizard of Oz is on page 194.
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. This paragraph is about the description difference between the main characters in the movie and book.
Throughout the novel The Turn of the Screw, through careful word choice and plot structure, Henry James has readers wondering whether the ghosts alluded to in the story are actually present in the house or whether they are a creation of the governesses’ overactive imagination. Throughout the book, James conveys a certain level of ambiguity that keeps readers intrigued, long after they finish reading. In the 1961 film version of the book entitled The Innocence, director Jack Clayton works to convey the same amount of obscurity in a 100 minute film that James projected within his novella. Because of the cinematic effects used throughout the movie, Clayton more effectively portrays the ambiguity of the ghosts’ presence in comparison to James’ novel. In only one scene during the entire movie, Clayton depicts this sense of obscurity when Ms. Giddens, the governess of the family, is playing with Miles and Flora, the two children she looks after.
