Tim Burton uses drastic makeup, contrast, and lighting to prove that things are not always as they seem. Tim Burton uses drastic makeup to make the characters stand out from the crowd, which makes them an outsider to everyone else. In Edward Scissorhands, Tim Burton makes Edward, the protagonist, look very dark and mysterious. Kim, Edward’s love interest, has a negative initial reaction to Edward because of his appearance. His appearance makes him look as if he is a monster, but Kim later figures out that he is very sweet, loving, and nowhere near what she thought he was like.
Another difference is cleanliness; On page 27 it explains that one of the Ewells “The back of his hands were rusty, his neck was dark gray”. Then for the Cunninghams “He did have a clean shirt and a healthy pair of overalls” (19). The last difference is manners. The Ewells are “very rude + poor mannered” (27). For the Cunninghams, Walter said, “none of thank you ma’am” (19).
Horace Miner, the author of “Body Ritual among the Nacirema”, used very interesting and descriptive choice of words to describe the routines that modern Americans go through from an outsider point of view. He gives different terms to describe mundane routines, like brushing your teeth, and exaggerate the details as something that is bizarre. Some rituals Miner described as illogical because there was a low rate of success in what they are trying to achieve. This reveals that what determines something to be socially acceptable is not through logic, but only though the popularity of the community. One of the rituals that Miner described as illogical but everyone still do the ritual was the fact that the people kept going to the “holy-mouth-man”, or also known as the dentist, even if their teeth are still decaying.
In sealand people are very forgiving of of the sins the people make and they do not care about deformities that some people might have. However the people of waknuk are not as forgiving. Especially Joseph Storm who is david's father, who beats david when he said “I could managed it all right by myself if I’d had another hand” (26). After this statement had been said Joseph had beaten david very badly. On the other hand the people from the fringes are not forgiving of the people from waknuk because they were outcast from there.
Features such as "the ecclesiastical gloom of the great hall … were a source of constant delight and great exultation to Tony; things of tender memory and proud possession" (14). The difference in opinions between the description of Hetton in the Guide Book and how Tony view Hetton is obvious. The Guide Book and the public do not see anything enjoyable about the house while Tony praises it. Despite everyone's disapproval, Tony cares very little about what others think and uses the lack of support toward Hetton to justify his disregard of others, including his wife
Though George is very forgiving towards Lennie when he unintentionally makes their life more burdensome , Lennie is still left with guilt. This shame is so heavy , that it leads him to have visions of his deceased Aunt Clara telling him that “‘All the time [George] coulda had such a good time if it wasn’t for you...But he got to take care of you’” (99). Lennie’s guilty visions portray Steinbeck’s opinion on the role of society to the helpless by accentuating how truly helpless Lennie is. Lennie’s inability to control his actions
However, Kinnear’s portrayal is not as good as Kenneth Branagh’s, as Kinnear fails to capture Hamlet’s anguish and rage in his expressions as well as Branagh does. Kinnear’s voice in the soliloquy is very clear with a sad tone expressing Hamlet’s displeasure of his mother’s marriage. His bodily movements from slamming his hands on a table to shrugging at Cornelius when compared to Hamlet’s father all express Hamlet’s feelings effectively, yet despite this Kinnear is missing something. Kinnear lacks the brimming rage that Branagh displays throughout his soliloquy by keeping a disapproving sneer as he talks about the marriage of Hamlet’s mother. By failing to show Hamlet’s teenage emotions ready to break free and try to fix the recent marriage, Kinnear expresses a less passionate Hamlet which is inferior to
In De regels van Matthijs, there is a drama – Matthijs’ row with his neighbours due to his insistence on finishing his toilet work despite his neighbours’ opposition and unhappiness – and that particular drama is captured adequately without overdoing it. But for Super Size Me, there is not one – although the scene whereby Spurlock’s physician advised him to stop the experiment due to his unexpected deteriorating health does create suspense. The “realness” of the film is one of the main advantages of participatory storytelling. Participatory storytelling is also better than other modes of storytelling at evoking empathy and aiding learning and development. Research shows that memories rooted in personal experience are easier to retrieve.
Given the information from the play we can conclude that Mr. Wright was a good man because he did not drink and paid his debts, but he was also a hard man who was not considered good company.“But he was a hard man, Mrs. Peters. Just to pass the time of day with him - Like a raw wind that gets to the bone." (Glaspell) pp. 21-22 He neglected his wife 's happiness and was focused on keeping her isolated. He also neglected her opinions and kept her from singing.
David looked like a ferret. He was polite, a gentleman to a fault, I disliked him in seconds. Perpetually bored, often subdued, David gave the outward of appearance of a kind, older man. The truth was he had feminine qualities, the worst of them. He fought hard to mask them, but if he failed to get what he wanted, he gave away the secret.
The Ewells and Cunningham families in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee or complete opposites of eachother. The first way they vary is in their appearance. The Ewells don 't care what they look like so their “necks are dark grey, backs of hands are rusty, and fingernails black deep into the quick” (27). However, the Cunninghams look as best the can with a “clean shirt and neatly pressed overalls” (19). Another way they differ is their education.
At other points in the novella characters describe Hyde’s appearance as being disconcerting even though there is nothing particularly abnormal about his exterior. There is something off about him that no one can pinpoint. In this scene Enfield says that just a look from Mr. Hyde was enough to make him break out in a sweat, “He was perfectly cool and made no resistance, but gave me one look, so ugly that it brought out the sweat on me like running.” (2242). Hyde’s lack of reaction also reminded me of the opinion of Victorians being very collected and composed, as though he were a dark parody on what happens when it is taken to
For example Hale just coming into the story said if he does not find any witches that they will have to agree with his decision. That shows that he is fair and he will not have any past grudges interrupt his work. In the opposite direction though the negative outweighed the positive with many other negative characters. Putnam was also another negative character he wanted Giles corey dead just because of a land dispute. Abigail the most flat out negative, Danforth was a lawful negative, and Parris was a social negative meaning he did not get along with others and liked to do his own thing.
Dave is also headstrong, which is quite normal for a person of his age and that specific phase and time in life. Even after killing Jenny, and getting out of it Dave actions and behavior points to this. All these actions may depict Dave as a not very likeable person, however moral of the story is showing us why it is so important for maturity to take place. For the most part the story is written in a very naturalistic style. There is not much time spend in description, but rather paving the way and letting Dave emotions and thinking of what is going on around him take primary stands in the story.
