Both the film and the novel incorporate Holmes as the judgemental, observational, and intelligent detective, while Stapleton is the cunning, evil villain. the novel, there are more main characters, such as Laura Lyons, who plays an important role in the case. It states, "Mrs. Laura Lyons of Coombe Tracey had written to Sir Charles Baskerville and made an appointment with him at that very place and hour he met to his death.” In contrast, the film has less main characters. Therefore, both have a suspenseful mood, but the novel has a more suspicious mood while the film has a more dramatic mood. The director chooses to remove some characters to dramatically focus on less suspects of the case.
All in all, Daisy's recklessness started the events that caused great suffering, destruction and distress of many characters. Jay Gatsby's death affected the plot of the novel because it allowed the audience to recognize one of the true meanings of Fitzgerald's work. Gatsby's death represents the corruption of the American dream. Myrtle Wilson's and Jay Gatsby's death helps to illuminate the meaning of the work as a
Shine was an powerful ability and reason that brings all the scary event and ghost in the hotel, which they are able to materialize themselves due to the “shine”. These supernatural events always lives in the hotel, but people with the ability “shine” can get glimpses of them, just like like Dick Hallorann. He sees the ghost inside room 237 and is terrified by it, Hallorann also warn Danny to stay away from
He gives epic imagery and diction to describe the events to which are happening to the Little G.P.s. He describes this historical event as if it was straight out of a horror or action movie. It really draws in the reader and does not let go. The picture Egan paints is so good, that at time it feel as if you’re there with the Little G.P.s, trying to make a task force out of scraps. A task force full of member from prisons and soldiers.
“This predilection for minding other people’s business was time-honored among the people in Salem, and it undoubtedly created many of the suspicions which were to feed the upcoming madness.” (Miller, p. 1217), Miller describes the situation in Salem. Another literary device used in the play is imagery. Most of the settings are very dark to make the reader feel how unwelcoming and gloomy it was. Miller describes the courtroom like this: “The room is solemn, even forbidding” (Miller, p. 1249). Imagery is important because Arthur Miller wants the reader to feel the dark atmosphere in Salem at the
Many actions played out during the Holocaust and World War II were not humane, and still remind us like a scream behind closed doors: hidden but still heard. While hearing the horrid stories and seeing the ghoulish photos of times not to be forgotten, we see the tragedy that is the mistreatment of human lives. Our identities are lost little by little, but those victims had theirs ripped from their bodies. After losing everything and then becoming a nearly empty vessel, it is amazing that we attempt to comprehend the cruelty of the Holocaust. The loss of identity and self might have started with Adolf Hitler’s reign, for the Holocaust legacies, but we are all losing bits of ourselves constantly.
Yet, the seemingly perfect relationship between significantly crumbles ends with patent gore and shock. Horror stories are usually staged in familiar places, for example in the modern era, haunted households, corpses in the wardrobe, etcetera. By writing about a familiar atmosphere, the author summons fear within the hearts of the readers as they anticipate the same thing will happen to them as they venture past grounds similar to the ones in the story, a psychological feat. Consequently, “the two table lamps alight-hers and the one by the empty chair opposite” depict the cosy aura within the Maloney household. By using the words ‘chair opposite’ and ‘table lamps’, where technology had arisen, the ambience is bright and mellow.
In Stephen King’s essay, “Why We Crave Horror Movies,” he explains the reasons why we desire horror films. He starts by stating that everyone is mentally ill inside, and that all of us have a way of concealing it. King explains why people who watch horror movies prove that they can’t be frightened. He conveys his reasoning “to show that we can, that we are not afraid, that we can ride this roller coaster.” The author then re-establishes to everyone people are normal from the actual terrifying image they see in the movies. Furthermore, King states that “the fun comes from seeing others menaced-sometimes killed.” He believes that watching people die urges adults to be more civilized and less aggressive.
Although the story starts out without indirectly discussing the murder of the king, we as readers can interpret that this act of violence has already taken place. The biggest question around is: “Who killed the King?” When the ghost visits Hamlet, readers and Hamlet become informed that King Claudius is the one who killed the king. (Act I, Scene 5, lines 39-40). This brings major tension into the mood and tone of the characters because now Hamlet has a feel for all the betrayal that is taking place around him. It also leads to a downfall of almost every character in the play.
This helps to invoke the powerful feelings of death into the audience and in both Gatsby and Moulin Rouge, these scenes are followed by the writer character in the films explaining how they feel about the character’s deaths and how they cope with them. These scenes are accompanied by intense music scores to help convey the feelings of shock and trauma of how such great beings such as Satin and Gatsby are just as susceptible to death as anyone else. This draws away from the seemingly amazing lives of the main characters and we find ourselves not just having feelings for the deceased characters but also for the characters who are mourning the loss they have
I chose Acts 8: 7-8 which says: 7 For in the case of many who had unclean spirits, they were coming out of them shouting with a loud voice; and many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed.8 So there was much rejoicing in that city. After I carefully read through these verses, I understood that the apostles were casting demons out of the people. Demon possession is when an evil spirit inhabits a hapless victim. The possibility of being possessed by a demon is a common belief among religions. One can become possessed by opening the door to satanic activity.
Humor often serves as a cocoon, shielding one from the harsh realities of violence, death, torture, and other atrocities against which the individual is powerless. Humor is used to cope with wartime and the horrors taking place as a result of political turmoil. In one instance, the character Siamak details the torture of political prisoners, telling Marji that dissenters were burned with household items, such as irons. Marji responds, ““I never imagined that you could use that appliance for torture.” (Satrapi, 51). The author’s use of a dumbfounded response shows the reader that Marji’s innocence still acts to shield herself from the ugly realities of her world, showing not only an acceptance, but moreover, an operative response so as to maintain
Have you ever seen horror movies that introduce scary, and crazy serial Killers? When you think about it, murderers don’t just kill to kill, there is a reason to their acts. Most have a traumatic backstory that changed their life. The content the authors decided to use for the theme of the stories are how isolation affect people, the society against mental illnesses, and the mistreatment of women. Authors Charlotte Perkins and William Faulkner both adopt this macabre style to portray how insanity affects people with “The Yellow Wallpaper” & “A Rose For Emily”.
In most of the epic stories like Beowulf, the main character is presented to readers. How he thinks and how he faces the antagonist is the focal point. However, modern authors and directors replace this traditional method with its opposite. We start to see the stories through the eyes of evil characters. For example, In a version of Beowu lf by John Gardner, Grendel tells the story and many missing points are clarified such as why Grendel is immune to weapons, why he attacks to the mead-hall and what he thinks during all that bloodshed.
