Even though when the word archetype is usually used, a reader’s mind immediately jumps to hero or villain, there are many different archetypes exemplified within The Great Gatsby. Carl Golden explains the ideas around another archetype; “The Innocent”. The innocent is simply known for their goal to be happy however they also have a great weakness. This weakness is their naivety. Daisy Buchannan perfectly represents this archetype mainly as her character develops throughout the story.
By using disjunctive editing to decenter the main protagonist, the series shows that the story is much larger than Nick Wasicsko and affects an entire community. Without the alternative style, the individual characters of the public housing community would not be as strongly present and would be interwoven with the main protagonist. The series could then fall victim to creating poverty porn or a “white savior narrative.” The characters would be used as pieces in Nick’s story, rather than be treated as individuals. In turn this would make Nick the cause of the people’s effect. Using the alternative narrative style, eliminates this possibility allowing Show Me a Hero to focus on the theme of social and political
Although transmedia storytelling has its advantages, there are disadvantages too. “For a film director or a TV producer, making content for other media from video games to comics is, to a certain extent, a disturbing process of transition. Those trained in the traditional formats of production find it difficult to think in “transmedia terms”. For them, transmedia storytelling is often a secondary, non‐strategic activity, and one that is not really productive” (Scolari, 2014). Superhero games based on Marvel Universe are available which enable the fans to learn and know more about the superhero characters and to connect with the story world.
Like all good dystopian stories, the world of A Clockwork Orange shocks us because it is not impossible to achieve. The perfect tyrannical societies portrayed in George Orwell’s 1984, or Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, or Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, or even Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games series are all realistic because they beam present-day society into a twisted mirror and show us how close we are to becoming a daunting, hellish civilization. Similarly, A Clockwork Orange reflects English society as Burgess perceived it in the 1960s- fresh off the boat, he was startled by the prevalence of an irreverent youth subculture of coffee bars, teenage gangs, and rising incidents of juvenile delinquency. This, coupled with the fact that pioneers of behaviorism such as B.F. Skinner were gradually growing in importance, caused him to investigate the
Tolerance of People who are Different The idea of tolerance within a community is highly important in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. The plot of the novel explores this idea through Salazar Slytherin's intention to wipe out "mudbloods," or wizards with non- magical ancestors, from Hogwarts. Harry himself is only half-wizard, and Hermione's parents are both "Muggles," non-magical people. However, Harry and Hermione are better wizards than Malfoy, who is from a family of generations of pure wizard blood, showing that dedication and work, rather than genetic heritage, are the important factors in guaranteeing success. Rowling describes the Slytherin students as inbred: all are oversized, strange-looking, mean and unintelligent.
Adam’s Rib presents a very important issue not only applicable to its era but also in today’s society: gender equality. In the disguise of a comedy, this film has tactfully deal with the problem in some of the most innovative ways I have seen. This film, in my opinion, definitely fits the description of a feminist film. One of the most interesting scenes I have come across is the climatic scene and Amanda’s resolution to it in court. She points out how the verdict should have been completely different had Doris been a man trying to protect the family and Warren the evil straying woman.
Rather summarized, the monster was created by scientific methods based on the advancement of the technology. An interesting ideology rises from that book pertains to contemporary society, and has a startling correlation. Contemporary society is experiencing a technological boom, perhaps best illustrated by the growing development of artificial intelligence, but, as Shelley’s Frankenstein suggests, this progress will not have the desired effect that humans long for, but will instead create monsters. Victor’s creation not only was able to learn the human language, but also able to understand society and how families are structured. This ultimately lead to his downfall as the monster learned on what he was missing, and how badly he has been treated by humans.
Be that as it may, similarly as is valid for the book, numerous parts of the motion picture can in any case be valued by the more youthful individuals. According to Jane Smiley “ 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ' does not deserve the high place it holds in the American literary cannon because it fails to confront the greatest moral dilemma of the book: slavery” (Smiley, 1996). The youngsters may appreciate the experiences of the story, the same amount of or more than the book on account of the authenticity improved in the film. Much the same as in numerous different instances of book to film interpretation most disputable issues may get
While an argument can certainly be made for this theory, it is better explained by the context it is presented in. When thrown back into society, all of the progress Huck and Jim have made striving for equality is negated by the fact that they are back in white society. The PBS film “Born to Trouble” explores this possibility. Specifically, the professor from Seattle notes how the inclusion of the words and actions critics deem offensive are what give Huck Finn its power. Without them it would just be another book, without any real lesson on racism and the evils that pertain to it (Born to Trouble).
It is the uneasiness of the lack of perfection the narrator’s ideal self makes him feel which mirrors the role of advertisements in society, thus offering consumers a myriad of products to become their enviable future self. Nevertheless, critics of the film such as Giroux find the fact that the dauntless anti-hero Tyler Durden is played by Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt a “contradiction that cannot be overstated”
