“Christmas is a Humbug” he says. The drama “A Christmas Carol” is about a man named who has a nasty attitude about Christmas. He is a greedy man who doesn’t want to donate anything to the poor and sick. He thinks that Christmas is a waste of time and money. Marley was this man’s business partner before he died. Marley came to this selfish man as a ghost with money boxes and chains which were weighing him down. Marley came to warn him that he needs to become a new man. Marley said that if he didn’t change that he would be hated by everyone like Marley was after he died. There are many similarities and a couple differences between this movie and drama like the ghosts of Past, Present and Future.
The way the movie and the play start is different. In the movie, we see the girls and Tituba dancing in the woods before Betty and Ruth get sick. During the movie, it shows Reverend Hale when he goes and checks on Ruth. The movie shows all of the girls getting questioned all at the same time in the church.
Watching the movie John Q after reading the play Antigone by Sophocles, at first glance the two look completely opposite. But digging deeper into the storyline and themes can prove they have many similarities! Some of these similarities are the characters in the stories, the conflicts that take place, and the themes throughout both the movie and the play.
Petruchio and Katherine are two characters in Shakespeare’s play “Taming of the Shrew”. Petruchio was a single man with money running out looking for a rich wife. There was a situation between Katherine and her sister Bianca. Bianca couldn’t get married until Katherine did. This was created by the sister’s father Baptista in order to make sure Katherine got married. Petruchio saw this as an opportunity and tried his best to woo Katherine into marrying him. The only
You also can’t deny that the changes of Kate in the play and in the movie are pretty big differences. At the start they are very similar that are just mad at life and don’t want to deal with anyone. But in the play she starts becoming normal because she’s falling in love, but then she turns into a zombie because Petruchio is starving her and deprived of sleep, and for so on in the play she is in the same state. Then there’s Kate in the movie gets drunk to release stress and wants to be a little “normal.” But for the rest of the movie she turns back to normal old Kate. To show that she was normal I have quite strait from the movie Joey, “my man how did you get her to do it” Cameron, “do what” Joey, “To act like a human” then Kate starts dancing on at table
In the comedy “10 things I hate about you” directed by Gil Junger, numerous elements of the movie are heavily influenced by the play “the Taming of the Shrew”, which is a comedic play written by the poet William Shakespeare. Many core components of the movie, such as the characters, plot and general story, are all inspired and even copied from the play itself. One such component is the characters Patrick Verona and his “the Taming of the Shrew” equivalent Petruchio. In the movie, Patrick takes the role of the outsider, a character who has no regard for his own reputation as shown by how he does things that are out of the ordinary, such when he “ate a live duck..minus the beak and feet” and explicitly said to Kate “i’m sure you have thought
William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” has had many art forms based off of it, for insistence “10 Things I hate about you”, directed by Gil Junger is one of them. While the plot, characters, and some themes are similar there are also many differences between the stories, allowing the audience to interpret the stories differently.
“For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”, is a line that was very important to the history of literature. It tells of the inevitable fate of two star-crossed lovers that were bound to death because of each other. There have been many movies and plays preformed with this story line, but two in particular are the Baz Luhrmann film and the original play’s text. Both the Baz Luhrmann film and William Shakespeare’s play of Romeo and Juliet may be compared by focusing on the following scenes: the party scene, balcony scene, fight and death scene of Tybalt and Mercutio, and the suicide scene.
Unlike Kat’s decision to partake in a relationship with Patrick, a man she is truly in love with, Katherine is manipulated and controlled to marry Petruchio and stay by his side. Her willpower is eliminated and she has no choice but to stay with a man who she believes has her best interests in mind. Petruchio’s abuse in Taming of the Shrew is far more than just verbal. He wants to ensure that Katherine is his subordinate that he starves her and takes away things she wants. As he states in Act IV scene i, “She ate no meat today, nor none shall eat. / Last night she slept not, nor tonight she shall not / ...And, if she chance to nod, I’ll rail and brawl, / And with the clamor keep her still awake. / This is a way to kill a wife with kindness. / And thus I’ll curb her mad and headstrong humor.” He believes that in starving his wife and keeping her awake, she will do anything he wishes to acquire these basic human necessities. Shuqair states it perfectly, “In Act IV, Petruchio's power is further established through Katherine's loss of identity and her subjective vision of the world. Starving her into submission and denying her sleep, Petruchio effects complete mastery over her. All of this violence is done, as Petruchio himself says, ‘in reverend care of her’(IV.i.204), and, as Katherine recognizes, ‘under
In the play, women are treated as property that is for sale. In the time of the play, fathers would pay off the men who chose to marry their daughters to help make their daughters more appealing or desirable. Petruchio in the play, abuses, starves, and breaks Katherine down to the point of submission. Which obviously makes this play hysterical and just an overall great rom-com. Or not. Katherine the main character, is labeled as a shrew by the whole town for the fact that she would rather speak her mind then be put down by others. Grade A comedy. If the roles were to be reversed and Katherine was the one to tame Petruchio this would no longer be a comedy of this era but a controversial portrayal of women being superior to men in a way. *Gasps* Who would do such a thing? Anyways, in the movie we see a glimmer of the same treatment but in a more lighthearted way. Kat Stratford is a hard- headed, independent feminist just like Katherine in the play. However, in the movie Kat is more aggressive towards the sexism yet generally more chill than Katherina in the play. Katherine was just angry at everything, if a chair looked at her wrong.. oh boy watch out but, Kat was more angry at men and the inequality of standards for women. Getting to the point, the movies treatment towards women comes off as the classic high school drama “boys rule, girls drool” type of vibe. Which is still not acceptable but more common and
In the Taming of the Shrew there was many plot structures. There was the framing plot, and the triple action play that included the induction: Christopher Sly and the trick played on him, Lucentio/Bianca which is the romantic play, and Petruchio/Kate which is a romantic play as well. The genre includes a comedy genre. In this play there is a beginning but there is no end. When Christopher is mentioned, we don't know what happens to him. In production, it mentions the balcony which is a play within a play. Sly accounts for and is the main plot.
Many actions and ideologies of the characters in The Taming of the Shrew create an overarching conflict between comedy and sexism for most readers. Specifically, the relationships between the men and women introduce controversial topics such as obedience and love which must be questioned thoroughly. The conditions of Petruchio and Katherine’s marriage was more “traditional” in the sense that it was primarily patriarchal, and that Kate was expected to be subservient and obedient. While this is sexist, on the surface, this was not the intended meaning behind the works. Rather, this was meant to convey how outlandish such common ideologies were in an increasingly sophisticated society. By using extreme examples
The basis of Shakespeare’s play is still mainly transferable into the late 1990’s when the movie was released, along with almost 20 years after that into today’s culture. Although the basis of the play is still relatable, there are obviously a lot of points in Shakespeare’s original play that are not relatable because of how society has changed and what is now seen as acceptable compared to what was acceptable in Shakespeare’s time when the play Taming of the Shrew was
If something is too old, does that mean it is not relevant anymore? The dreadful play Macbeth, written by William Shakespeare in the sixteenth century, has created a lot of controversy towards the issue that it is not relatable to a modern audience anymore. However, the themes, and character traits found in Macbeth are very similar and relatable to a modern society. The play Macbeth, demonstrates humanity, which will never change, attesting to the fact that, the play is still relatable to a twenty-first-century audience.
A time period difference in the play than in the movie is that they all use swords to fight with. In the movie they use guns. It makes it seem more violent and easier to kill someone quickly than using swords. The play takes place in the 1500’s, in the movie the time is in the 1990’s. This is obviously very different because the time back then in the 1500’s was very different from the 1990’s. In the movie, the play takes place in Verona, Italy. In the movie it takes place in Verona Beach, Florida in the United States. I think the Author made it in the United States because maybe he was trying to apply older things to this modern world. Another thing that is majorly different is that Paris doesn’t get killed in the tomb. When Romeo drinks
