The Lord of the Rings is another extremely popular book series, not because it guides people, but because it entertains them, unlike medieval literature in that respect, but very much like it in the fantastical part. Most books that do present ideas, like I am Malala, are not the most popular types of books. Animal Farm, a book by George Orwell, is a very high seller and is very popular, yet it explores ideas that influenced people to have better understanding of the Stalin. But, the reason for its popularity is because books like these are used more in the education system because of their great ideas. Although these ideas are taught, not many students pay attention to them, as they are of the past.
Have you ever watched a movie based on a book that told the exact same story? To me, for some reason, books always seem to be the better one out of the two. I feel that in novels, the author develops the story with as many details as possible, while in movies that aspect doesn’t appear in the same way. There aren’t as many details in films since it has to last for a certain amount of time, but books can last for as many pages as the author would like them to. When I read, the fascinating novel “Beowulf,” I really enjoyed how the author made me use my imagination to create a picture of the world that the characters were living in.
You increase your vocabulary, your inspiration, your imagination and your empathy. You can learn to treat and understand the people better. Fiction books are great entertainment a a personal growth source. I also agree with Neil Gainman about the libraries and librarians. I rather read physical books than ebooks.
Some audiences may enjoy movies like Warm Bodies and feel inclined to read Romeo and Juliet after. Although technically these audience members may not have a scholarly interest in Shakespeare’s works, the continual revival of Shakespeare’s tropes keep him relevant amongst populations other than just scholars. In fact some scholars believe that these constant reproductions of Shakespeare are necessary for keeping his name alive. Film and English professor at the University of Southampton, Shelly Cobb, believes that “Shakespeare and other classical authors are ‘literary ghosts [who] need spokespersons to articulate and perform their lost secrets’”(Cobb). Every modern film and piece of artwork that adapts and appropriates Shakespeare reinvigorates audiences to continually interpret the meaning of Shakespeare’s works.
The giver is a good book and a good movie. Though like most people I prefer the book. So that I don 't sound bias I will consider both the book and movie. The first thing I strongly disagree with the movie is lacks of backstory it gave us. In movie it starts us off with Jonas (the protagonist) on his bike, his destination being the nurturing center.
The time period within the novel is constantly changing from the past to present, which I did not like, because since read inconsistently, I had to go back into previous chapters to refresh my memory. This book was an enjoyable read. It was necessary to pay close attention in order to keep up with the plot and the changing time periods in every chapter. It is a perfect book for young adults and teens that enjoy books of fantasy and romance. Night Circus was a book that kept me so immersed in the story that I wanted to read it all in one sitting.
When books are adapted into movies, they tend to lose a considerable amount of substance and character development. Often, when the book’s content is edited to fit the allotted time for a movie, character depth and plot details are lost in translation. Many details and literary devices that may seem insignificant are cut from the screenplays, but they can play instrumental roles in the development of characters and the furthering of the plot. One literary device that is poorly represented in film adaptions is attention to detail. Often, seemingly insignificant details are excluded from movies, but they can play a large part in the growth of characters.
Seemingly, there are numerous topics in any work of fiction as protracted and rich as George R. R, Martin 's book , A Song of Ice and Fire, which has been viably balanced for TV as Game of Thrones. I would contend that primary theme which is the corrupting influence of power. “Lord Snow wants to take my place now. ' He sneered. 'I 'd have an easier time teaching a wolf to juggle than you will train this aurochs. '
Many people may have read the poem Beowulf that was written by a anonymously poet in Old English; this book was later on translated by Burton Raffel. This poem captured many people in the old days that eventually lead this to get adapted to the big screen by Robert Zemeckis. People who are into literature like the books better than the movies because they feel like they are more detailed while with the movies they have scenes that are shorten up and do not have the most important parts that we may find interesting. Most movies and books do not often relate to each other and it is rare to ever find a movie that is much more better than the actual book. After watching the movie it has come to understanding that the book and the poem are similar in some ways.
The movie by Roman Polanski doesn’t follow completely the movie setting. For example the duel between Macbeth and Macduff had a humorous side. The acting of the Actors was not the best and it could have possibly been better. Shakespeare introduced Macbeth as a hero, but on the film the acting from the actor John Finch (Macbeth) did not reflect this trait on his character. Although,
