Walter Mitty wanted a happy life and not a sad one. It showed what Walter wanted to happen in his future and what he wanted to become. It makes the story more interesting to see it in a movie instead of just reading it and picturing it in your head. I think that a lot of people will think that the movie is better than the book just because it has more to tell about, and it shows more of what is happening. The movie
While with his friends, his town gets attacked by the rebels and his whole world turns upside down. Both authors portray the hero’s journey, but there multiple differences and a few similarities in their techniques. The first step in any hero’s journey is the Call to Adventure, and Bilbo’s and Ishmael’s were significantly different. Bilbo Baggins’ call to adventure was a calm greeting between himself and Gandalf, the great wizard. Bilbo was sitting on his porch in the Shire, having a peaceful time when Gandalf started to walk by.

A significant excerpt in this play portrays the uses of imagery, symbols as well as looking at the work in a different perspective. Act 5, scene 1 of Macbeth covers the downfall of Lady Macbeth, showing how affected she is by the work her husband and herself have done. The scene consists of a doctor and gentlewoman that are brought into the play to help Lady Macbeth, who see her get up out of bed and start sleepwalking; revealing many hideous truths that they did not know about. Throughout the scene, the uses of imagery and symbols are brought in, going in depth about certain characters. To begin with, blood imagery is exemplified in the scene as Lady Macbeth gets up (sleepwalking and not in sense) and addresses her problem, which is the stain of blood on her hands.
Instead of merely describing the way Mrs. Mallard sat in her room weeping, the narrator states "She knew that she would weep again when she saw the kind, tender hands folded in death, the face that had never looked save with love upon her, fixed and gray and dead. But she saw beyond that bitter moment a long procession of years to come that would belong to her absolutely. And she opened and spread her arms out to them in welcome" (Chopin, 13). Again, the author allows the reader to peer inside the mind of the protagonist in so the events later in the story are best
However, Luhrmann decided to modernise the story has much as he could by changing the setting and having the actors portray the characters in a different style compared to the play. Depending on the audience and their liking, they may enjoy the more classic and true to the play interpretation made by Zeffirelli or the modern day Verona Beach filled with gangsters and guns made by Luhrmann. Both
/ Would he were here! To all, and him, we thirst, / And all to all” (3.4.90-93) when then Macbeth seeing his ghost, becomes uncomfortable and then talks to the ghost. This shows that Macbeth is beginning to mental break down and starts the falling action that leads to his killing. In act 4, Macbeth is conversing with the witches, wondering if “Tell me, if your art / Can tell so much: shall Banquo’s issue ever / Reign in this kingdom?” (4.1.101-103), and after their response, he is showt Kings and Banquo is last, as his prophecy still holds true. Macbeth and his wife are still concerned about Banquo even though they killed him two acts ago, which shows Banquo’s
As later written, Madeline’s disease causes her to become deathly ill and she passes away while the narrator is visiting. Following her death comes a disturbing tone in the story as the visitor finds out the Ushers only marry within their own family, and that Roderick and Madeline were not only mentally ill twins, but spouses too. That night, Madeline is buried in the basement with the excuse that doctors wanted to study her, however, it is later explained that Roderick held a secret as he declares, “We have put her living in the tomb!” (1839). In the climax of the story, Madeline breaks out of her casket and busts out of the chamber to find Roderick and the visitor upstairs. The trauma of seeing his sister causes Roderick’s heart attack and he dies there on the floor.
This lead to the added scene with Big Daddy and Brick which gave the movie a happier ending and gave characters closure. Maggie’s denial of her affair with Skipper in the movie is also added because of the culture it was made in. Both the film and the play are very alike in many ways, but both have differences which changes the

Chiwetel Ejiofor performs Hamlet from Hamlet with a vigorous tone yet perfect speed, he knows how to give a professional act. Most of the actors cited a piece of text from Shakespeare and gave their reason on how it is important to their life and others. A counterclaim that is encountered with this subject may be describing how Shakespeare 's work is outdated and how the stories were just stories. These points are not important to the argument because they are not valid against the claims of how Shakespeare can give the present day a view of the past, and how he still affects many people today. In conclusion, I believe that reading Shakespeare today should still be allowed in education.
Also this book can prepare students for the outside world and how to strive for what you want in this challenging society. Although many people feel that Romeo and Juliet should not be taught in high school and have logical reasoning to back up their opinion I feel that it should still be taught due to the reasoning I have previously provided you with prior to this conclusion. Finally I actually like Romeo and Juliet and admire shakespeare for having the imagination to be able to write this and create one of the most unexpected plot twist in play
