I think that Uncle Tom’s cabin can be dramatized to a modern audience because it was a revolutionary book that helped people understand slavery at the time, also other historical films have been made that Uncle Tom’s Cabin could replicate, and finally the offensive stereotypes stated in the novel could be avoided to accurately depict
This is not only informative, it also strengthens the ethos by proving the author is knowledgeable and supporting the first person experiences of the novel. Instead of stating “this is the family of the patient,” the author uses personal experiences and specific facts to characterize all members explicitly (Skloot 273). The details and experiences are connected by and transitioned with the shifting point of view. Although Skloot was an important character, her main purpose was to report and tell “everybody in the world about [Henrietta Lacks]” (Skloot 206). As a result, the third person is more prevalent than the first person aspects of the novel.
The families similar courses that they pursued allowed for “a new kind of unity in East of Eden” (Lisca) and a better understanding of the major messages in the story. Additionally, the differences that they did have illustrated a broader context for the reader, and the failure by Steinbeck “to achieve fictional concentration” (Lisca) was simply a misunderstanding of Steinbeck’s ability to provide several different perspectives of a controversial topic, which allowed the readers to think about the concepts and formulate an opinion for themselves. The privilege of being given ‘both sides of a story’ not only sparks an intriguing discussion, but it also develops into an inarguably good
Her initial manipulation attempts are unsuccessful, but Marie continues: “She harassed and bedeviled him so, / that he had no choice but to tell her” (lines 87-88). The use of “harassed and bedeviled” instantly casts his wife’s insistence as suspicious and malicious. Marie confirms the suspicions when the wife schemes with a knight who loved her to get rid of Bisclavret. Even though “she’d never loved [the knight] at all,” the wife offers herself to him in return for stealing Bisclavret’s clothes (line 107). “So Bisclavret was betrayed, / ruined by his own wife” (line 125-126, emphasis added).
Soon after that, she makes it to South Carolina where she is given the false hope of freedom through money, nice clothes, and a place to stay. During this, she thinks she has found the same freedom she expected her mom had, but learns that the only reason why she was given those things was because she is supposed to be a test subject for a medical experiment. The author says “They had gone to bed believing themselves free from white people’s control and commands about what they should do and be. That they managed their own affairs. But the women were still being herded and domesticated.
When Medea finds out she and her children are being banished by Corine, she comes up with a plan. Her plan is unusual instead of being rational and deciding how she will move on with her life and how she will provide for her boys, she decides to focus on what is more important to her which is revenge. Medea begs Corinth for one more day in Creon, and he agrees to let her have one more day. With in this one day Medea kills Jason’s loved one she says she does this to hurt him but arguably this hurts her.
Medea never intends to commit any acts of cruelty until she’s banished which eventually leads to the rising action. The King tells Medea to leave even though she has no plan and no help for her sons. She is pushed further off a cliff with no chance of escape. The moment after she has a last day granted to stay, she starts planning the murder of Jason and his wife. She feels the need to get back at Jason for what he did and any chance of getting back with him is ruined.
It is much more effective for the students to have their own perception of the characters and scenes first, then they can watch the story come to life. The audience will already have knowledge on the message and a personal insight on Jeannette Walls’ emotions. Watching the movie first will already put a visual in their minds, which will not let them create their own private image. Reading is an intimate experience, all readers perceive a picture differently. Although no movie based on a book is fully satisfactory, it is always amusing to watch the storyline in a different light.
John is put on a trail and won’t confess to witchcraft, so he is hanged. The whole reason Abigail started all this witchcraft mess was so that she could get rid of Elizabeth and marry John, and John is the one who ends up getting killed. If Abigail and John never would have had an affair, then Abigail wouldn’t have wanted to marry him, and she wouldn’t have asked Tituba to do Voodoo, which is what gets the girls in trouble to start with. John and Abigail’s affair caused them to have a complicated relationship, which turned into Abigail doing Voodoo, which led to the girls getting caught and being accused of witchcraft. If Abigail and John would have never
