The Great Gatsby Book Vs Movie The Great Gatsby, written by F.Scott Fitzgeralds in 1925, and its movie adaptation directed by Baz Luhmann in 2013, are very similar. There are many details that remain loyal to the book in the movie. Yet, since the release of the book there are many cultural and social changes in our society. Consequently, certain things of the book’s theme, characters, and symbols are no longer acceptable/enjoyable to audience. The producers, it seems while trying to make the movie fit the modern times, they cutout or changed certain things about characters, theme, and symbols that caused it to be slight different from the book.
One of the film’s on this course was ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ an adaption of the Pulitzer- Prize nominated play by John Guare. Two theories that we studied that applied to this film are; Post- Modernism and Structuralism and the concepts; pastiche and collage, genre and intertextuality. I will be analysing the movie while applying these two theoretical concepts and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each in the conclusion. Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is connected by six or fewer steps from any other person in the world. Frigyes Kerinthy originally came up with the theory but it became popularized by Guare in ‘Six Degrees of Separation.’ The character Ouisa Kittredge is seen speaking about this theory to her daughter in the movie, “I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people.
Play-scripts were manuscript and used as manuals to en-scene plays which were visually presented by actors for the purpose of entertaining and communicating implied meaning to an audience. Shakespeare’s play Macbeth was written during King Henry V’s reign over England, a historical context which emphasizes meaning to the basis of the play. Having read Shakespeare’s Macbeth and watched film director Justin Kurzel’s re-interpretation of the play starring Michael Fassbender we can identify dissimilarities and noticeable distinctions between the script and the movie. Through my analysis, I determined the main difference between the play-script and the movie to be the role of grief in influencing the actions of the main characters. This opens a
Some of the major differences, such as the changes in Jonas, Fiona, and Asher’s characters in the movie as well as Jonas’s escape, really separate the movie from the book. However, that is not to say that there are not plenty of similarities. The descriptions and portrayals of Jonas’s feelings about the Community, The Giver, and the structure of the Community are very similar between the two stories. While the similarities greatly outnumber the differences, some of the differences are very major and can change the story a
The similarities and differences: Cultural Settings In novels, cultural and social setting can affect characters and the story in many ways. The social period of a story usually influences characters’ features, social and family roles, as well as sensibilities. In The Kite Runner, the story compiled of a mixture of Western culture and Afghan traditions while in Pride and Prejudice, the author displays the late eighteenth-century Britain and the Regency culture. Both of the novels, Kite Runner and Pride and Prejudice do correspond on certain things despite the differences they have in cultural context. The contradiction of cultural setting between The Kite Runner and Pride and Prejudice can be manifested blatantly in terms of dining.
When people recall, thoughts and comments raced through their mind. In the Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible, some of the same similarities and difference people found between the play and movie that really happened at Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Discovered the play has more details than the movie, but the movie can make us have more sense. The play and movie are alike in several ways. The first way is they send Tituba to the court.
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.
Within the epilogue, the use of personal pronouns as well as the active and passive voice differs from the rest of the play. While Prospero uses the personal pronoun “I” and the active voice in most of the play, such as when he speaks to Alonso at the end of Act 5, saying “I invite … I’ll waste … I’ll bring”(5.1.301-308), in the epilogue this changes to a greater use of the personal pronoun “you” as well as the passive voice, such as in the lines “I must be here confined by you” (Epilogue.4) and “Let your indulgence set me free”(Epilogue.20). By distancing himself from an active role in his future, the audience is led to believe that Prospero’s power without magic is as he describes, as “most faint” (Epilogue.3). This then raises the question on whether or not Prospero's return to Milan will play out the way he expects it to, and results in the play lacking proper
But sometimes they could be totally different in what happens in those scenes. Throughout the novel and film color and dialogue had showed up. Colors, and dialogue are both a big part of the novel / film, but they are also different.The film version and the novel "The Giver" were similar in dialogue because in both they really affect how the people in the community react to situations that happen, and they were different in colors because this had affected how the people saw their community . In the novel and film "The Giver" the element of Color had showed up, but this element is similar and different in many ways. In the novel "The Giver" by lowis lowry in chapter 12 it states, "The next time had been the faces of the audience at the auditorium, just two days
One of the several themes that Priestley has introduced to the play is ‘Time,’ and this theme not only interlinks with some others like ‘Age and Youth’ and ‘Social Responsibility,’ but also introduces a very important drama technique into the play for the audience called the dramatic irony. In Act One, Mr. Birling, as a representative of the older generation of the play and the head of the family, is talking to the others about the progress humanity is making and mentions the liner, Titanic saying it is “unsinkable, absolutely unsinkable.” The word ‘absolutely’ in this context shows just how confident in his words Mr. Birling is, without understanding that it will all change. As the play is set back in 1912, but is performed much later in 1946, after the audience knows, and finds it ironic that Mr. Birling, thinking he is an old, wise man says such nonsense, as time will show.This is the first example of dramatic irony, which in this play happens mostly because of the difference in time periods of when the play was set and
