Katherine Boo’s Stereotypical Delineation of Contemporary India in Behind the Beautiful Forever: Life, Death and Hope in a Mumbai Under city Abstract The Western writing about India has always been a grotesque and is the common trend right from the day of Britain rule in India. This trend is still continuing in this 21st Century. Britain had lost its hold on Indian subcontinent in 1940’s and there persists the interest in viewing India through their colonial eyes. India’s embrace of globalization has reawakened their preexisting biases. Through their writings they distort real story of India so as to give emphasis to their superior status.
Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, is seen as a true piece of American Literature that presents itself at the core of McCarthyism in the bitter wake of Communists spies inside the United States. In many cases the main character of Abigail Williams is considered secondary to that of John Proctor. However, many years later, Miller writes a screenplay for the 1996 film adaptation starring Hollywood heavyweights like Winona Ryder; whose portrayal seems to allow the character of Abigail to have more room to expand. It is to my opinion that the author does this to present a more rapid and truthful motif that differs from that of the 1950 ‘witch hunt’ for communists. It is shown in the differing aspects of Abigail’s character from play to screen,
With these these two outstanding examples of the same work, the book and the film continue to continues to spark debates sbetween which one is better. Along with Of Mice and Men, there are other books that have film and has create endless debates on which one of those is more effective to convey their message. This MGM film expresses the theme of loneliness and friendship, which relates to our world today by making the world a better place.

When people analyze films and books, they usually argue about which one is better.

In the poem, “My Papa’s Waltz” by Theodore Roethke, you see a child wanting a father’s love and care. The story opens up by talking about his father being a drunk. Although it does not directly say it, we can tell by the way the boy talks about his father, and his father’s actions. “The whiskey on your breath” (1) is the first line of the poem, which indicates someone talking about alcohol on someone’s breath.

3.2 Translated movie titles In some cases it is possible to translate a movie title word for word into a target language. Although it is a very common technique of translation it does not belong to the category of the simplest ones. While calquing the title we have to be aware of the fact that not in every case a calqued title would remain the same as the original one. In such case the adaption of the title into the target language is necessary, e.g. supposing that the English expression daily bread is a movie title and need to be translated into Eskimo.
In the 2013 recreation of the novel “The Great Gatsby “ written by F. Scott Fitzgerald the director Baz Luhrmann is challenged to adapt Fitzgerald’s most enduring and famous work of literature. Luhrmann utilizes a good use of adaptations by adding a character to the movie to help introduce viewers to the story. Luhrmann also makes a good adaptation by adding in modern music to help enhance the images of the party scenes as well as help convey some of Fitzgerald’s messages. Although Luhrmann does a exactable job making adaptations to maintain the novel’s character one aspect that took away from the novel was the casting roles. Luhrmann’s 2013 movie is a fine adaptation and uses stylistic tools to maintain the true meaning of Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, however parts of the casting fell short.
