The class also helped me to be able articulate why I think some actors are better than others to people by using solid examples. One thing that will affect how I will view film performances is now it is easier to notice if an actor started in film or on stage. This was something I never noticed or thought of until before this class and now I can’t stop noticing it some select actors. Another thing is, I always have had an appreciation for scripts and directors, but this class has helped me see that actors are just as important as a good script. This class was certainly a good choice to fulfil an elective, and it also helps that most of the time is spent watching a
Characters like Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are good examples on how gender plays a role on people having free will or not. In the beginning of the story, one of the first things that caused Macbeth to falter with his free will was manipulation. He was first manipulated by the three witches in act one, scene three. The witches tell Macbeth that he “shalt be king hereafter” (Mac.1.3.50). By saying this, the witches were able to plant that idea in his mind, manipulating his actions.
In conclusion, the characters of Thomas Putnam and Abigail Williams influenced and shaped the Salem Witch Trials. Abigail Williams and Putnam started the first accusations which led to widespread fear of witchcraft in the village. This same fear was exploited by Williams and Putnam in order to achieve their selfish motives. Without these characters, the Salem Witch Trials might have never occured which brings us to realize how much damage vengeance and wealth can cause. All in all, Abigail Williams and Thomas Putnam’s grudges and selfish intentions were what caused Salem Witch Trials and the destruction of several innocent
The witch trials are a perfect comparison to the HUAC trials of Miller’s time. They both stemmed from common people attempting to gain power and good standing within the community. They also both exemplified the outrageously corrupt government of the time periods. The play goes to show that “those who don 't know history are doomed to repeat it” (Edmund Burke). Both governments believed the common citizens about any accusations they had.
Atticus did not only open the kids eyes to how you should not judge someone, but also, to stand up for what you believe in, despite what others might say. When Atticus is presented with the Tom Robinson case, without much thought, he says yes to being his lawyer. He knows the rest of the town will disapprove, but he believes in the innocence of this man and does not care of his complexion. In this moment, Scout and Jem only see how everyone will downgrade them and see them differently. Atticus shows, it does not matter what others think, all that matters is that you support what you believe in.
Characters Lucy, Aslan, and Edmund who lived during World War II in England were set to defeat the White Witch in Narnia. Most of the novel is set in the magical land of Narnia during World War II. Narnia is a mythical land where there are talking animals and the evil White Witch who declares that she is the queen of Narnia. This book was a turning point in Lewis’s writing career and has really out done what was expected by the public. The overall series was by far the best work of his career.
The book Ghost of Spirit Bear is a sequel to the book Touching Spirit Bear. I enjoyed this book because it has a good story and plot. While this book is not as adventurous or moving as the first book Ghost of Spirit Bear still has a good plot and creates vivid pictures in your mind while reading. I prefered Touching Spirit Bear over this book because it has more adventure and a more shocking story. The book consists mainly of the same characters but more were added when Peter and Cole go to school.
The book has more eventful scenes, some scenes more valuable than others. I feel like students will find more things to connect to in real life situations from reading the book than viewing the movie. “There are a million ways for the movie to go wrong” (The Atlantic). That 's why i believe movie makers should really pay attention to details in the book and incorporate it into the movie to make it more successful. I absolutely love the book.
