We also had more focus on the other apartments than there was in the story but, the focus on the other apartments was to give us a visual of Jeff and Lisa’s problems rather than actually corresponding to the murder. Due to these slight interruptions, the points of high suspense were reduced throughout the film while we had continuous suspense in the short story. The film, like the short story, was portrayed from a limited setting but many people wouldn't expect this from a movie so, it may have seemed more like a play rather than an actual
The man was trapped inside of the transparent column, which could be their father because he stopped writing letters to the family. Therefore; it adds meaning by suspense.The corridor where they can see all of the people inside of the cells creates a feeling that each man might be Meg’s father, adding a huge meaning to the story. In the movie, since her father can see, it does not create as much suspense as the book did. The father did not know who Meg was until she got in the column but her father knew as soon as she was walking down the corridor. This does not create as much excitement and joy as the book did when Meg and her father reunited.
Finding meaning in this movie is most difficult I feel like I’m pulling on loose ends. Based on the movie as a whole I would rather write a paper about Harold’s edifice complex than minor religious themes. Harold is seen in most of the scenes with either his mother or Maude who is more than old enough to be his mother. In scenes with his mother she treats him less than his age as child. His mother has standards to keep with her friends and only interacts with him after her friends see something she rather them not have.
The nadsat language effects the book a great deal, which is why it is difficult for most readers to read (Carson 201). The protagonist, Alex, uses nadsat continuously throughout the first section of the novel; for example, “Oh now, don’t, both of you malchicks Droogs, aren’t we” (Burgess 33). In other words, Alex is calling his droogs cowards. The nadsat vocabulary can also be challenging because the author creates another meaning for a word, such as: knives meaning alcohol, rot meaning mouth, cutter meaning money, and cancer meaning cigarette. The nadsat language and vocabulary can affect a reader’s perspective of A Clockwork Orange.
Ashwini Patel The Great Gatsby Synthesis Essay When novels are being translated into movies, the meaning can often get lost in translation. The depth that the novel has to it can often be lost in the movie. The movies are translated by directors and producers for the entertainment of the public, but a book is all the author’s creativity put onto paper. Baz Luhrmann’s film, The Great Gatsby, would have been a great film on its own, but it was not a successful adaptation of the novel causing the true meaning to be lost in all the film and music. The novel was a story that took place in the 1920s, so jazz would have been the obvious music choice.
However, people often seem to forget the final chapters. Everything begins to make sense, and this leaves the reader missing the manic characters, light puns, and humurous vingnettes. Catch-22, while a satire first, also presents a unique blend of satire and horror while portraying the consequences of war. The novel's darker implications begin early on in the work. It starts slowly, subtly.
The book also seems to be badly misproportioned, spending too much time in the exposition, and hardly any on the climax. The climax is fairly difficult to determine, it might be Lucy’s death (either one), or it might be the killing of the Count. Certain characters seem not to be very developed such as the three woman, or even van Helsing. The characters rarely directly see the titular character, they just talk about him and plan to kill him. However, the plot appears to be moderately good; although it is time consuming.
Due to to the fact that most of the movie is surrounded arounded love and intimacy this part would confuse viewers and would cause them to not be able to understand the movie. overall, The movie and book of Their Eyes Were Watching God are very different when it comes to theme.

The Joy Luck Club was a very hard read for me. I did not follow or comprehend what I was reading most of the time and I’m not going to lie, I had to Shmoop most of it. After getting through the whole book I appreciate the message between mothers and daughters that it is trying to convey but I still did not enjoy the book to its full extent. I did not enjoy the book for two reasons, its sequencing, and the fact that I did not relate to most of it but I did enjoy how real it was. The first reason I hate the Joy Luck Club was the sequencing of the book.
Throughout the story, Hale served as the main mediator who tried to no avail to end the witch hunts. Before the events of the story, Hale was a well-known minister who was well versed in diabolism. Instantly when introduced he is seen as a “ specialist whose knowledge has... been publicly called for” (Miller 30). Consequently, this means that publicly his words carry weight although later in the story it does him no good. This could be attributed to the fact that Salem was experiencing a major case of hysteria, unlike previous places where Hale actually had proof instead of many allegations based
The Great Gatsby is a story about a man, who climbed his way up to the top with sheer determination and a girl who had an abusive cheating husband whom she did not really love. It is told by a man who is relatively poor, lives next to Jay Gatsby and is a cousin of Daisy’s. The newest movie is quite similar to the book but there are some differences. In the book, there is much more ‘space’ left for the description of the scenes. They appear more lively, more colourful, even when written to be ‘bland, grey, unmoving’ unlike the movie which, to no surprise, expressed the greyness much more.
This story is the best because of the entire mystery of it that makes you read until the very end. A number of things can be said about the mysterious lottery in the story. Instead of the lottery beginning it is withheld. No one speaks of the lottery, except for the occasional whispered words that leave readers confused. Furthermore, everyone is required to attend and all men must participate.
