In the novel, Frankenstein does so in complete solitude, with no help or anyone observing him. In the movie, however, Frankenstein is not only aided by his hunchback assistant Fritz, but is also accompanied by his fiancée, his friend, and his former professor. Whale most likely took this direction for artistic and effective reasons, because the scene is clearly more exciting in the film than it is in the book. If one were to watch the movie prior to reading the book, this scene would only be described as anticlimactic in the novel. “By the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open; it breathed hard, and a convulsive motion agitated its limbs” (Shelley 35).
Chief Bromden's well-informative backstory is completely removed from the movie. However, his backstory obviously would be almost impossible to show Bromden's pre-hospital life, nor have the movie told from the Chief's point of view as the chief habitually feigns muteness. Other characters such as Nurse Ratched and Randall McMurphy are slightly altered by the director and screenwriters to better fit the movie. Nurse Ratched is no longer the omnipotent dictator of her ward but is still an intimidating power-player in the ward. McMurphy goes through many states of mind in the novel.
Murtagh was a son of one of the Dragon Riders who turned evil with King Galbatorix. This made them half-brothers. The apprentices of the antagonist were both family members of some sort. When Eragon turns to face the King he is only able to defeat him because of the help from Murtagh. He turned his brother to the good side like Luke Skywalker did in the Star Wars series.
Shakespeare has linked scene i and scene ii by having the characters in both scenes discuss a battle and Macbeth. The witches’ discussion about “When the battle’s lost and won” only becomes clarified when the soldier comes to tell of Macbeth’s victory. This gives an effect of mystery and intrigue about Macbeth, for we have only heard about him thus
Victor states that he cannot describe his emotions at this catastrophe (Shelley 43), knowing that his vision in his head came out different than he intended. The one thing that seemed to be consistent in transposing the book into a movie was the monster’s strength and
Creation Myth The Greek Creation Myth and Norse Creation Myth will successfully resonate with modern audience because both of the myth is very different from each and has very interesting story behind them. Like how in the Greek mythology it tell a story about how Zeus save his brothers and sister from his father by poisoning him with made him throw up his kids out of him. The Norse mythology is very different because the Norse Gods spoke and acted like human being and they were also face the inescapable fate of death. So the two myth are very different from one another. The first three Greek’s immoral being was Gaea, Tartarus, and Eros.
However, in the movie he possessed a flaw that would change the course of the story. His love of women completely changed the tale. In the poem, Beowulf battled Grendel’s mother and killed her. In the movie, he couldn’t resist her and lied about killing her. He ended up fathering her child and created a dragon that would destroy the community.
Another difference is that the characters thoughts and the development of each one. The third noticeable contrast is the different events that happen in the movie and not in the book and vice versa. The symbolism in the book has much more impact than in the movie. First of all, the conch shell that it is found by Ralph and Piggy at the beginning, it is very important in the book and it is more visible how its importance decreases, however, in the movie is not very important so the authority that the conch had in the novel is not as clear as in the movie. This is a failure of the film because the shell represents civilization, democracy and leadership.
Climax- is the turning point in the story. On page 169-171, the story says,” Gawaine found a dragon in the same meadow where he had found the first one,” to “ The impact was terrific and the head of the dragon flew almost a hundred yards and landed in a thicket”… I chose this as an example of the element of plot because it is the turning point since Gawaine slayed his 50th dragon without saying ‘Rumplsnitz’. 7d. Falling Action- is when loose ends are tightened up. On page 171, the story says,” Gawaine didn’t remain frightened very long after the death of the dragon,” to “Even the ribbons should be devoured”… I chose this as an example of the element of plot because Gawaine asks the Headmaster if the magic word is fake and it was.
Manchester clearly did little, if no research, and only picked anecdotes that fulfilled what he thought the medieval times were like. The assertions that he has given throughout the book seem as if he wrote it as some sort of parody, more suited for a Monty Python movie than something might be called history. One of the many mistakes which took part in writing this book was when Manchester says "the medieval man's lack of self-ego" (page 21). If men in the medieval times had such a lack in self-ego then why would there be so many knights and men risking their life’s if not for having a big
