A notable difference between the film and the novel is that the Boo Radley plot, one of the two plots in the novel, is introduced far earlier in the film than in the novel. This causes certain events that ultimately shaped the Boo Radley plot to be omitted from the film. For instance, when Miss Maudie’s house burned down in the novel, Boo Radley put a blanket around Scout so that she wouldn't be cold. “Mr. Nathan was at the fire,” he babbled, “I saw him, I saw him, he was tuggin’ that mattress-Atticus, I swear…” “That’s all right, son.” Atticus grinned slowly.
This creates a connection between the viewer and the characters in the film. In Lost in Translation, this technique is used to show the growth of these characters emotionally as they interact throughout the film. This is seen when the two characters just looked at each other as they sat in the hallway without talking to each other. In such a way, it shows the emptiness and loneliness in their
Additionally, Finch uses low-key lighting to reveal Zuckerberg's conflict at the start of the movie. Immediately, Zuckerberg and his girlfriend are in a bar with dim lighting, and the two of them begin to argue until she ends the relationship. This is just the first step of many as Zuckerberg becomes more and more isolated from his friends. Both Citizen Kane and The Social a Network applied low-key lighting to clarify that despite all the wealth or virtual friends, the two characters are alone, referencing the theme of
In the novel The Big Sleep, by Raymond Chandler, there are many conflicts between two characters that are subtle and do not feel like conflicts, but it is evident they are through his use of similes and metaphors. The scene when Carmen sneaks into Marlow’s apartment and waits for him naked is one of the better examples of these scenes when a subtext battle exists. Chandler first sets up the idea that Marlow is meant to be the knight in shining armor by echoing the earlier scene when Marlow first steps into General Sternwood’s home. The scene Marlow walks into when he enters his home is Carmen lying under his covers, her “tawny wave of hair…spread out on the pillow as if by a careful and artificial hand” (Chandler, 154).

Relationships are the core of everything we do in life. We love someone, so we do something for them; we value someone 's opinion, so we respect them; we dislike someone, so we avoid them. Relationships cause people to act on their emotions which impact how and why they do the things they do. Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple trying to come to a conclusion on a delicate matter. While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy.
Pip meeting Estella changed his limited mindset and gave him the crave for change. His ambition led him to London, where Pip strived for the perfect image. At first sight, Pip was dismayed by the “ugly, crooked, narrow, and dirty” (Dickens 171) city that contradicts his fantasy of a gentlemanly world. As can be seen, Dickens foreshadows the hardships and suffering London will deliver as a consequence of Pip’s ambition for Estella’s love. Furthermore, Pip’s lavish appearance led Joe to part ways: “You and me is not two figures to be together in London; nor yet anywhere else…” (Dickens 238) From this, Dickens hints the relationships that are yet to be broken by Pip’s new status.
Jackson appeals to fans of the American gothic through her particular description of the house and how the characters interact with it in order to show the environments foil of an absolute reality. Shirley focuses a large part of the introduction of the house on describing its odd design and initial impressions. Dr. Montague describes the house as being on a “slight slant… that may be why the doors slam shut” and notes how “every angle is slightly wrong” (Jackson 77). This causes an uneasy feeling for the reader as they question the effect this will have on the characters throughout the novel. Also, Eleanor’s initial impressions of the house cause her to hesitate and question whether she has made the correct decision.
Edgar Allen Poe 's, "Fall of the House of Usher" symbolizes the narrator reaction to witnessing Madeline 's return from the grave and trying to comprehend the supernatural events that take place inside the estate. Also, this includes the narrator observing Roderick Usher losing his mind. His perspective is important because it is an interpretation of his surroundings while visiting the House of Usher and the allegories of the nature of art. From the very first paragraph, the overall suggestion of the story is that the tone is the story if going to be mournful and somber. This is supported by the narrator describing his journey on horseback towards the house.
During Frederic and Catherine’s first kiss, he “tried to open her lips” but “they were closed tight” (Hemingway 27). At this point in time Catherine does not want to move on and feels guilt at kissing Frederic. However, as the kiss progresses Frederic “could feel her heart beating” and notice that “her lips opened and her head went back against my hand and then she was crying on my shoulder” (Hemingway 27). The symbolic meaning behind her lips opepning during the kiss shows that she wants to use Frederic as a means of attaining the love she desires. Spanier writes about Catherine's need to fulfill her desires when she says that “we begin to understand what must have been taking place in her mind when she made Frederic pronounce the words she wished so desperately from her dead lover” (Spanier).
Mr. Darcy excuses himself and states that "vanity is surely a weakness to be avoided, but that pride should be properly regulated for a proud man to have a superior mind (Austen,147). Elizabeth half ironically states that Mr. Darcy suffers from no defect. This interaction is a prime example of how both characters each still wear their pride and prejudices assumptions on their sleeves. Elizabeth's convection in herself causes Darcy to continue to view her in a different light. Elizabeth strives to maintain the independence of her mind, while other girls might have been at pains to humor Mr. Darcy and endorse whatever opinion he might have expressed.
