In the movie productions of A Wrinkle In Time and And Then There Were None, the directors did not follow the original story line. The directors made some changes in the movies which did eventually end up affecting some of the movie scenes.
In Philadelphia in 1793, a disease that filled the whole town with terror broke out and struck the world, yellow fever. The disease spread rapidly and killed an estimated 2,000-5,000 people. Long ago, the best doctors in America lived in Philadelphia during this epidemic disease. They studied yellow fever as best as they could with their prior knowledge from previous diseases. The American doctors couldn’t find the right cure so that was when the French doctors came to America and helped treat the fever. The fever got spread due to infected mosquitoes. Refugees came to America and brought the disease.
A Time to Kill follows the trial of Carl Lee Hailey as he is charged with murder for killing the two men who raped his 10-year-old daughter. Jake Brigance, the lawyer for Carl, is on a mission to get Carl off in the little segregated town of Canton. A Time to Kill was written by John Grisham, and was published in 1989. Seven years later it was released to theaters, directed by Joel Schumacher. The movie has similar characters, scenes, and same overall plot as the novel has, but also has many differences. The novel A Time to Kill later became a movie that had many similarities from the characters and scenes described in the novel, but many differences occur between important scenes and missing characters that did not make it into the movie.
What differences and similarities occur between a story of a society that extremely same and everything is controlled by government, and a society that inequality, differences rise and government only controls the outcome? The Giver and Hunger Games are popular novels that are first book of their series. While Hunger Games is a novel based on a society that problems occur from inequality and differences, focuses on the survival and which the main character Katniss stands out as a leader, and The Giver by Lois Lowry is a novel based on a society that problems occur from being too perfect and same, focuses on the importance of memory and past and which the main character Jonas stands out as a rebel for himself and very few people; both texts share similarities such as being dystopian novels which symbols used and one teenager stands out from a society and rebels.
Madam Lockton and Isabelle from the book Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson are two very different people, but they also have similarities.

This story takes place in 1776 in New York when slaves were abused during the revolutionary war.
To live in a world where collectivism is a part of society it must be strange to the way we live now. In both dystopian novels everyone has the same rights and is equal which makes them practice collectivism. Throughout both novels they show their separate in relationship and figure out what relationships truly are and overcome the fear of their government discovering them. In Vonnegut’s “ Harrison Bergeron” and Rand’s “Anthem” their societies are the similar in equality but different in their relationships.
In this essay I will be comparing two female characters from different texts and different time periods. We will be looking in depth at Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare 's play 'Macbeth ', and Sheila from J.B. Priestley 's 'An Inspector Calls '.

One of the biggest summer nuisance would be the mosquito, but more specifically the Ades aegypti mosquito. The Aedes aegypti is the vector for yellow fever and the cause of the numerous deaths. In her book The American Plague: The Untold Story of Yellow Fever, The Epidemic the Shaped Our History, Molly Caldwell Crosby presents the idea that the mosquito is not just the only reason an epidemic occurred in the 18th century. This story accounts for the disease that broke out across the world and nearly destroyed almost all of North America’s population, which some believe could have been avoided by simple quarantine analysis and sanitary methods.
To Kill A Mockingbird , and Mendez v. Westminster are two very different stories. They both have different meanings and different things that they talk about in their stories. Then they have some similarity. They both have a cause and effect, but most of all they both have some Coming Of Age.
In early America, the first successful colony was called the Jamestown Colony. It took a while for this new country to fill up, though. This was because, in the beginning, many people died from disease, starvation, and Native American attacks.
After the assigned nightly reading, my biggest idea on the book Chains was the idea that society forces people to choose sides, Patriots or Loyalists. The setting of New York in Chains was interesting, because at that time period New York was the main battle zone between the Patriots and Loyalists. ¨New York is a ball tossed between the Loyalists and the Patriots. Right now, the Patriots hold it,” said Curzon, on page 39 in the book Chains. This quote shows how the author makes a statement about Isabel´s role in the conflict by choosing New York, the crucial and undecided territory of war. Like New York, Isabel is a ball tossed between the two sides because she doesn't know which side will help her and Ruth the most. She first spies for the
The primary source I chose for my analysis is “A Most Terrible Plague: Giovanni Boccaccio”. This document focuses on the account of how individuals acted when a plague broke out and hundreds of people were dying every day. This source is written by Giovanni Boccaccio as it is a story told by him and friends as they passed the time. Boccaccio discusses how “the plague had broken out some years before in the Levant, and after passing from place to place, and making incredible havoc along the way, had now reached the west.” Readers of this source can assume there wasn’t much cures and medicinal technology weren’t used much during this time as even their physicians stayed away from the sick because once they got close they would also get sick. The purpose of Boccaccio preparing the document
The novel, 1984, can be most closely compared with the popular book and movie series, The Hunger Games. Overt comparisons between the two novels include their futuristic approach and the dystopian societies that emerged after periods of war. Additionally, both novels highlight poverty as a highly effective method of control. Building on that method of control, both novels have a strict hierarchy of society used to control the masses. However, the most interesting comparisons are more subtle. Both authors use children in unique ways to maintain control on the population. Skilled readers will also discern that both authors use hope as a means of control; however, it has differing results.
