The novel To Kill A Mockingbird was better than the movie because the novel developed the setting, the dual plots, the theme of racism, and the character of Jem Finch better than the movie. Additionally, multiple events were omitted from the movie. When it comes to the story To Kill A
In To Kill A Mockingbird, it says, “He choked you, he hit you, then he raped you, that right”(Lee 190)? The book has violence of choking, hitting, and raping which are some reasons the book was banned. These topics make some students uncomfortable and have the right to learn about something else. Harper Lee states, “I guess it ain’t your fault if Uncle Atticus is a n****r-lover besides, but I’m here to tell you it certainly does mortify the rest of the family” (Lee 85). Throughout the book, there are many times the “N-word” has been used.
Scott Fitzgerald. “The Great Gatsby” was about how life was before the great depression and how it went from great to not so good. This book taught people about our history and what made the roaring twenties so great. Well it used to teach people that, until it got band out of high school libraries because of its language and somewhat sexual content. Something that is not often thought about when banning a book, is the culture you’re throwing away with it.

Suddenly, John lunged forward and tried to punch Jimmy in the face. Quickly, Jimmy grabbed the Hard book and brought it down on John 's skull. John 's fluffy fingers trembled and his wobbly toenails wobbled. He looked Sad, his body raw like a glorious, grubby guillotine. Then he let out an agonising groan and collapsed onto the ground.
Even now, now, very now, an old black ram Is tupping your white ewe. Arise, arise, Awake the snorting citizens with the bell Or else the devil will make a grandsire of you. (1, 1, 85-90) This quote is used by Iago in a racist way to make Brabantio angered at Othello. Iago calls him an “Old black ram” which is extremely rude and
Scott Fitzgerald. Unreliable circumstances molds an untrustworthy and dishonest narrator, a variation from the book to the movie to create a more dramatic scene, changes how the audience feels about Daisy and Gatsby’s relationship. A small rewrite by director Baz Luhrmann creates a happy ending that was never originally envisioned affects the mood of the audiences. By comparing and contrasting three very important scenes to the development of the plot, it is clear to see how the changes made by director Baz Luhrmann did not give the outstanding representation that The Great Gatsby
Rule breaking, leads to rulemaking. But to break an established rule in any artform hinges on the author's intent; to do it out of ignorance or laziness just results in sloppy work. To effectively break the rules, it’s necessary to learn them, acknowledge them, and then go on without them. John Huston’s The Maltese Falcon (1941) is the perfect example of this.

Another quote from the text to show that character is linked to theme is, “With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche” (pg. 165).

The positives of being an individual are more present in the media, (give examples) but the negatives are normally overlooked. In the novel named The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier the main character Jerry has to deal with reality that it 's not so easy to go against the grain.

After Jerry decides to not sell chocolates there seems to be a ripple effect of other students viewing him as a hero with kids slapping him on the butt and in the school that was a sign of respect.
