When reading Beowulf the reader can see how he is such an epic hero and has all the good qualities like being heroic, brave, loyal, and being basically superior over ordinary humans. In the movie the change in his morality shows that just because he is a hero it does not mean that he is perfect nor does he not make any mistakes. After reading Beowulf, then watching it, the audience can see there are major differences between the morality of Beowulf from the book and the morality of Beowulf from the
It keeps the watcher outside the world which helps us learn the life lessons instead of empathizing with the characters in which was present in Macbeth. The reader could feel the guilt and anger that was going through Macbeth’s head as well as in Lady Macbeth’s. Both the play and the movie might have great similarities, but each has its own unique way to deliver the message to the reader/viewer. The philosophy in Throne of blood takes us well over Shakespeare, but they both serve the purpose of the story perfectly. Both Macbeth and Throne of Blood are unique in their own way, whether it’s the way the characters react, or to the themes.
In the book and in the movie I could tell what the characters and the actors were thinking and feeling. In the book I could tell what the characters were thinking and feeling because how they acted. In the movie I could really tell how the actors were thinking and feeling because of the emotions they showed. The main theme of the book and movie is loneliness and isolation. The main message they were trying to put out to me was having each other 's back was more important to them than caring about if people cared about them.
He uses pathos as he wants the audience to understand that these movies should be made as a way to tell these people’s stories. He wants them to know that their struggles should be told to others as a way to avoid mistakes like it in the future. His examples come through from Zinn’s bravery of
The story of Romeo and Juliet is a typical love at first sight plot but includes various other aspects that make the story interesting and different to other movies or stories with the same basic plot line. For example, there are many outside complications that are stopping them from pursuing their love as well as a surprise twist at the end to conclude the legendary play. Zeffirelli and Luhrmann decided to go in two completely different directions with how they were going to portray the tragedy that is Romeo and Juliet. Zeffirelli decided to go down the classic route and put the entire play, including original script, on screen with a few line changes. However, Luhrmann decided to modernise the story has much as he could by changing the setting and having the actors portray the characters in a different style compared to the play.
When people of one race believe themselves to be superior to those of another, only catastrophe can result. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, racism was extremely prevalent, and white supremacy was much more pronounced. In William Shakespeare’s play Othello, both covert and overt racism, assimilation, and jealous dispositions all foreshadow the untimely death of Desdemona and Othello. Most characters in Othello display both covert racism and overt racism towards Othello. In the beginning of the play, during the initial dialogue between Brabantio and Roderigo, the first references made of Othello are “his Moorship” and “the Moor,” which is echoed by most of the characters.
Clearly the idea of identity in Romeo and Juliet contributes to a great conflict within the famous play. Each family were in a different social class and Juliet's gender played a major role in the idea of Independence and privacy against her her own family! Juliet only being 13 or 14 was a major contributing factor to the theme of identity as a young female in the Middle Ages such a play would have been absolutely shocking during shakespeare's era because of her outright disownment of her wealthy family for a lover of a lower social class. We see this in other literature and movies such as mixed races where individuals have fallen in love with each other families disown each other because of societal pressure and societal norms of racism and discrimination. This play, Romeo and Juliet touches upon those societal problems that are timeless especially with individuals wanting to fall in love with a lower social class or an individual that is from a different wealth class.
Some competitors enjoy the thrill of winning, while others take the competition to the extreme, risking not only their lives but also others. Set in nineteenth-century London, The Prestige, directed by Christopher Nolan, characterizes the struggle for domination between two illusionists, Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale). Angier blames Borden for his wife’s death, and, since then, the two engaged in a never-ending sabotage of each other’s magic tricks. An adaptation of the 1995 British novel, The Prestige, by Christopher Priest, the title came from the fictional practice of stage illusions, which had three basic parts that John Cutter identified in the beginning of the film: (1) the set-up (pledge), (2) the performance
Bertolt Brecht gave a concept of “Aliegnation theory” and “epic theatre”. His idea of the actor’s role is very different from Stanislavski’s. By showing theatre, he wants to educate his audience in an entertaining manner. He thought that audience were manipulated by beautiful sets and theatre technology, lighting, makeup, imaginary fourth wall and also by emotionally effusive acting techniques. He was always against the illusion created by traditional theatre in which the audience observes a slice of life.
Shakespeare is asking us to consider the fact that the audience has the ability to interpret the play however they want, and the way the actors say their lines can change the audience 's interpretation. He complicates our understanding by showing us that although the writer may have a specific intent, the actors can change the play entirely by the way they deliver their lines. Shakespeare challenges our understanding of life itself, for although we may feel happy and unconquerable, we all have our Achilles heel that changes comedy into tragedy. From upbeat to ruinous, Shakespeare utilizes the contradiction between Comedy and Tragedy to emphasize the shift in the tone of the
