In Fitzgerald 's novel The Great Gatsby there are a lot of characters who are the same and a lot who are different.

Although these two books share a common theme, what makes each one of them similar and different towards one another are the literary elements incorporated into the book.

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 characters in both stories are similar in name but differ in characteristics. The feelings and emotions of the characters are different in each story. For example, in Rogers Story Launcelot and the Queen love each other dearly while in Michael’s only Launcelot does. Another example is that King Arthur’s bond with Launcelot in terms of friendship is stronger in Michael’s Story but not much in Roger’s. This is because of the Point of View of each story, Roger’s Story is told in third person which makes leads to a distance between the reader and characters.
Moncrieff’s translation preserves the medial caesura of the original with backslashes. His translation is also in a vertical form arranged by line, similar to the original epic. Francis B. Gummere’s translation of Beowulf is concerned with maintaining a similar style and tone to the original, although he is willing to sacrifice a few choice words from the original to do so. That indicates a looser formal equivalence philosophy. Gummere was careful in maintaining the alliteration built into Beowulf, most exemplified by the first five lines which contain ample alliteration.
The Giver and other dystopian novels like Fahrenheit 451 have some similarities and differences in the story line. First, The Giver and Fahrenheit 451 both share the fact that people are being controlled on the amount of knowledge that they know. Additionally, both societies have no idea of how they came to be. On the other hand, in The Giver Jonas slowly starts to realize that something about him is changing because he can see the color red but, in Fahrenheit 451 Guy Montag just wants to take a risk because of his curiosity. Second, in Fahrenheit 451, Montag is a “firefighter” except, in his society he starts the fire instead of putting them out, while in The Giver the jobs/assignments are practical for everyday life in the community.
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
Soldiers Heart and Red Badge of Courage are shockingly similar to each other. However, there are a few details that are different between these two books.
