Well,this paper is about the differences of the book,Sleepy Hollow and the movie of the same name. They are quite different, in fact, more different than similar. Not that it’s crazy surprising considering hollywood rarely does a good job of portraying people,books,comic books,etc. I mean, just look at The Lightning Thief or The Last Airbender or basically any movie based on a comic book or book.Enough of talking about other movies. That’s not what this paper’s about so let’s get started on these differences,shall we?
Grendel’s mother, the mighty sea hag, came to the mead hall to avenge her son and obtain Grendel’s arm. Beowulf could not penetrate her skin and was losing until the monster’s arm turned into a sword forged by giants. Beowulf used this mighty sword to slay the mother. He then repaid Grendel’s visits with one of his own. Beowulf found the troll’s lifeless body and cut off his head.
You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor!” (Miller 1244) Even before we know a lot about Abigail we find out that she resorted to “devil work” to try and get rid of John Proctor’s wife. She is still in love with Proctor to a point of destroying her and anyone who gets in her way. Another quote is by Abigail herself that says, “Why, look at my leg. I’ve holes all over from their damned needles and pins. The jab your wife gave me’s not healed yet, y’know….
Billy would steal horses throughout Peros Valley and take them to a market in Tascosa (Nolan 1). During his life, he had several warrants against him for murder (Garrett 62). One day, the house Billy was staying at was set on fire (Garrett 64). In order to escape, Billy said he would surrender. Billy did not surrender, but he fought his way through his nemeses until he could become covered by the weeds and brush by the river (Garrett 65).
Beowulf: Good Vs. Evil The balance of good and evil in Beowulf by Seamus Heaney is apparent in the characters Grendel, Grendel’s mother, Beowulf and Wiglaf. Grendel is a slayer and kills the Danes in Heorot Hall. Grendel’s mother comes for revenge of her son and in the process kills Hrothgar’s friend and adviser, Aeschere. Beowulf does countless acts of selfless deeds, even for those who are not of the Geat clan.
And there is none but Putnam with the coin to buy so great a piece. This man is killing his neighbors for their land!” (Miller, 89). People start to use the witchcraft trials to their advantage. Putnam, for example, uses his daughter to accuse George Jacobs, an old man who can barely walk, of witchcraft by stating that he flew to her window in the middle of the night. By doing this, the vindictive Putnam gains land like others do too to their advantage.
Her dispute is the lack of human emotion that is depicted between the characters in the novel. She attempts to declare the Great Gatsby as a novel lacking in affection. Although Schulz makes a credible point, there can be an argument regarding emotions of characters being present in the novel. First, Schulz attacks Fitzgerald by saying, “The Great Gatsby with human emotion than any book with comparable fame that I can think of.” With speculations, Schulz misses most of the emotions presented to us from each character. Nick, for example, is the narrator of the story, and can be described in Schulz’s article as one who “never admits to collusion with or seduction by all the fabulous depravity around him.” With this quote, Schulz tries to explain to us
This is because it succeeds in amalgamating the erstwhile and present day perceptions of life and communal affairs. This is best evidenced by the fact that while most of his characters are fashioned from the Victorian times, they are fashioned together in the manner of a super-team. The story is developed on the backdrop of ensuring the fate of the British Empire remains unchanged (Habibzadeh & Marcovitch 3). The movie version offers extensive misrepresentation of the contents that exist in the comic version. For example, the comic does not feature drag racing or any other form of motor vehicle competition by the different characters.
