Since at the beginning, Poe has also stated that: “Blood was its avatar and its seal – the redness and the horror of blood. (…) The scarlet stains upon the body and especially upon the face of the victim, were the pest ban which shut him out from the aid and from the sympathy of his fellow-men.” The Red Death takes the form of a victim who could have already come into the castle along with the disease and colored signature mark to signify the resemblance of death and disease itself. So far Poe has used symbolism in "Masque of The Red Death" and showing readers how death comes at the end of every life cycle. Symbolism takes place in many forms like how the red death is the disease in the story, along with the bizarre masquerade, the clock of time, and the color of life. Not only does he describe these things in his story, but also foretells how even the wealthiest richest man such as Prince Prospero, cannot escape or outwit
Myrtle’s red lips represent her haughty and bold personality, but red also represent blood and death. Such references can connect to future events such as Myrtle’s death. Other colors such as the grey ash heap can portray a gloomy, bleak, and depressing mood.

Making a movie from direct content that is more than a hundred years old is easy because all the scenes and script is there for your use. Some directors like to make some drastic or minor changes based on their own interpretation of the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare. While watching both Goold (2010) and Polanski (1971), I have noticed a lot of major differences between the two movies and the original play Macbeth written by William Shakespeare. Some of the differences I have noticed is that is in Goold (2010), Macbeth actually comes to kill Lady Macduff and her children. Another difference in Goold (2010) is that the witches are shown throughout the film.

Another difference between the book and the story is that Danae was King Acrisius’ daughter in the book but in the movie she was king Acrisius’ wife. The third difference between the book and the movie is that Perseus fights off giant Scorpions in the movie but in the book he does not. The second similarity between the book and movie is that Perseus is the son of Danae.
A book and a movie can be both the same and different. In The Outsiders there are many similarities and differences with the book and movie.

In The Outsiders one of the themes is “friendship” In the movie and book there were many similarities.
They’re present in ads, on tv, even on the doors to the toilet. However, they don’t only represent the qualitative aspects, they can also effectively be used as devices to represent internal states of mind. In the novel “Catcher in the Rye”, J.D. Salinger, through the use of symbols and metaphors, is able to effectively demonstrate what mentally drives Holden, without having to be to blunt about it. One of the most famous, talked about, and prevalent symbols throughout the novel is Holden’s red hunting hat.
The movie and book,The Giver has similarities and differences.First off,In both the book and movie Jonas becomes receiver of memory. They both had the same main characters,Jonas,Gabriel,Asher,Fiona and the Giver. Another thing they both have in common is that they can’t see actual color,they only see black and white.

It appeared the building was possessed by some evil power (Kubrick suggested it could be because the house was built on the Native Americans’ cemetery) that killed some of visitors and workers. The spirit or demon was interested in Danny’s abilities, but the boy used them to call help and save himself and his mother. Jack died (froze to death in the movie) and joined the ranks of people affected by the Overlook Hotel. Kubrick’s The Shining can be called the most famous screen adaptation of this novel. This status remains despite the fact the director cut and changed some aspects of the original story.

Emotional, astounding events occur, such as ghosts walking around, or inanimate objects (a painting, or the one used by cinema: a suit of armour coming to life) coming to life. This was the most dramatic and amazing event that occurred in the novels. Ghosts were seen walking, talking and even bleeding just like Lewis ' bleeding nun. Giants appeared or a painting of a deceased fell of the wall just as one of the characters tries to escape. In their writings, many authors present the explained and the unexplained supernatural, but by reversing their proper order (Miles, 2002: 53).
