The author directly gives us a straightforward description while using visual implying text. “But I stayed in school. I was not the smartest or even particularly outstanding but I was there and staying out of trouble and I intended to finish...
The novel A Separate Peace written by John Knowles exhibits a unique friendship between two teenagers, Phineas and Gene Forrester which takes a turn for the worst to turn into a silent one sided war of jealousy that ends in regret. The film created by Peter Yates is a good attempt at exhibiting the same storyline as the novel, but falls short of the clarity displaying major differences which makes the understanding of the storyline difficult and less enjoyable. Two major points affecting the storyline by setting and plot event include the chapter in which Phineas passes away, along with the part where he is taken to the infirmary which results in major differences in the film. The film and novel both display the same content, but they also share some differences in the setting which make the feelings of one hard to analyze.
Although both the play and the movie is dramatic, the movie was more dramatic. When Mercutio died, it was a lot more dramatic than in the play, when Tybalt killed him he looked like he regretted it a little and Mercutio didn’t want help from Romeo when he tried to help him walk, he kept pushing him away. The love between Romeo and Juliet was more immature than in the play, even the movie made it seem more immature than in the play. Even though they both cared for each other greatly, their love seemed a bit childish. Their love is more of a flight of fancy than serious, they tried to be serious but that didn’t work well.
“One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy…” (O 'Connor 484), this could mean that with name decision Hulga had made her mother could not turn it into something positive, because once something is dust you can not turn it back into its original form. Hulga’s name change symbolized that she was not the same girl she once was or she would be. In addition, the author inserts Vulcans name to compare him to Hulga’s
While most child stars dislike the title, Abigail maturely brushes it off. She claims that she doesn’t honestly care what people call her, and the title of child star isn’t exactly an insult. She understands why she has been associated as such, simply because she began acting at a very early age. She tries not to consume herself with labels, and claims to avoid reading anything the press writes about her.
First detail being left out was the appearance or even mention of the character Dan Cody an influential character in Gatsby's life. Also, the owl-eyes guys in the library nick encounters is not shown in the movie. Other things such as Tom and Myrtle's appearances were skewed in the movie. Dan Cody one of the most influential if not the most influential person to Gatsby is left out. The book portrays him as a father figure teaching gatsby everything he knows.
Abigail Williams and Elizabeth Proctor only seem to have one thing in common to readers: their love for John Proctor. Although John Proctor does not feel the same way towards Abigail and even says, “My wife is innocent, except she knew a whore when she saw one!”(Arthur 111), when talking about the innocence of his wife and the promiscuity of his mistress, Abigail Williams. While Abigail is young and naive, Elizabeth is mature and wise. Elizabeth uses her wisdom to recognize the flaws of the young girl to ultimately conclude that Abigail’s accusations of witchcraft were not true.
The modified appendix does not work because it gives a different view of how Abigail comes onto John. Abigail is very dramatic and exaggerates her fear of “spirits.” It wasn’t as dramatic in the book version. In order to try and come onto Proctor, she is much more controlling. The tone is definitely different in the movie because it is much more forceful.
A person may be suffering addiction, experiencing depression, expressing opposing views, or do something very bad, but those things do not define him/her. Chip is not defined by his recklessness (which is why he is chipped), but is instead defined by his actions and his heart. This can, and has, been applied to life by the people who watched Beauty and the Beast. Lastly, Beauty and the Beast teaches us that inner beauty conquers outer beauty. Beast realizes this during the movie when he starts to love Belle.
I acknowledge that movies don 't always include everything from the book it is based on but I really feel that some scenes should have been included. For example, Janie’s family history isn 't really involved in the film. Also, if you were to just watch the movie you wouldn 't understand why Nanny forces Janie to marry
In the movie The Secret Life of Bees, several examples of suffrage for African-American women in the south and interracial relationships were shown throughout the movie. The film takes place during the Civil Rights Movement, and the relationship between whites and African- Americans is a very rocky one. African Americans are still not being treated fairly and prejudice is still a major factor taking place. The movie begins with the main character Lily Owens tells the story of the day her mother was killed.

The novel The Lone Ranger and the Fistfight in Tonto and the film Smoke Signals are very similar in many aspects but have some key difference as well. The main differences occur in the situation where the characters had a choice. The first situation is where Victor and Thomas is the book decided to abruptly leave the Trailer in which they were staying while in the film Alexie chose to stay there. This lead to some character development where Alexie shared some of his stories such as the one about the basketball game. Another difference is throughout the film it is shown that Victor and Thomas have a more strained and aggressive relationship this can be seen in the scene when they're in the truck and Thomas yelled at Victor and showed aggression that wasn't seen in the novel; in the novel Thomas and Victor have a more respectful relationship with one another.
Would the Civil War have ended differently without an additional one-hundred and fourteen soldiers? Well it might have.

Through deeper analyzation the reader can tell that Chamberlain’s speech was powerful, inspirational, and pivotal, putting hope into the men that were considered criminals by the government. Joshua Chamberlain speech and actions revealed many of his character traits.
