It is rare to find perfect harmony in both. Usually, I try to read the book before I see the movie because I find it disappoints me in the reverse. Fully capturing the essence of a novel on film can be very challenging. Novels, in general, offer more background and insight and allow more time for character development. The best way to decide if the mediums are closely related is to do a side by side comparison and see if the movie can hold the same value.
Many of the themes overlap each other with the same examples because they correspond to some of the same things. Social cognition is one of the major themes of this movie because it deals with the encoding, storage, retrieval, and processing of new information in the brain. In the movie, the Ludovico technique had been designed to alter behavior and distort the brain to always choose the more ethical decision. This clearly took away free will and the right to determine how one's life was supposed to be. Alex was the main subject of these experiments and was forced to change his behavior or else suffer the consequence of excruciating pain.
Comparing the play with the movie, there are several differences in the way the characters are chosen, how they act and how the surrounding is set out. To start off, the main obvious difference between the book and the play is the different gender of the main character. As I´ve said, the main character in the play is Prospero while in the movie it’s a woman named Prospera. The decision to cast a woman in the part changes many of the dynamics between Prospero and others, like the father-daughter relationship vs. a mother-daughter relationship. Shakespeare used a male role as the main character in the play, as generally it is believed that as a man Prospero can show more strength, confidence and valor, while a woman was and is considered shier, weaker and more emotional.
There are many similarities and differences between the book The Giver and the movie Pleasantville. As to being similar, they deliver more or less the same message. “You can’t help who you are.” Full of clichés, but still true to real life. Of course, there are the similarities between setting such as them both being in black and white, and the differences of time period. You really need to look at the main characters to see any major similarities and differences between this book and this movie.
Jane Eyre Final Essay In many novels, readers often do not know how to indentify a character as being purely evil or purely good. Morally ambiguous characters are at the heart of many works of literature. In Jane Eyre, Mr. Rochester is characterized as a morally ambiguous character through his actions, his significance to the novel, and his multi-sided personality. Morally ambiguous characters usually play a pivotal role in a novel. Mr. Rochester’s actions determined Jane Eyre’s reaction, which shaped the whole novel.
The events may be arranged chronologically or nonchronologically and may be factual, fictional, or a blend of the two. (262) Together with narrative, form is another technique often used to narrate so as to attract audiences’ attention. Just as William H. Phillips says: Structure, which some scholars and theorists call form, refers to the parts of a text and their arrangement. In a fictional film, the selection and order of events help viewers comprehend the story and strongly influence how they respond…Fictional structure (characters, goals, and conflicts); some functions of beginnings, middles, endings; combination of different brief stories (plotlines) into a larger, more complex story. (264) Classical narrative form is commonly known as linear narrative which refers to stories told in a single line with logical order and ends with an assured conclusion, usually seen in traditional Hollywood films.
Compare and Contrast In the book the Kite Runner you get an abundant amount of detail describing the characters, and their lives. Though through the transition of making the book into a movie there is some details that were not filled or added. Making the two different in some ways, and the same in others. Assef is a character in the book that fits into this category perfectly. He was described as a bully in the book, which is the same as in the movie.
Write about the ways the story is told in Chapter 5. Chapter 5 of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ creates a contrasting tone to what has previously occurred in the novel. Fitzgerald generally creates a surreal atmosphere in order to control the manner in which many readers approach the events within the novel. Fitzgerald’s use of first person narrative enforces a judgemental perspective upon the reader, although Nick Carraway appears to set aside all opinions and therefore simply overlook the action-taking place. This is structurally emphasized by the layout of the novel on the page.
Bedsides the fact that he is a restricted narrator creates subjectivity, we only knows what he tells us and the fact that he includes personal opinions in his narration increase the subjectivity. Moreover the voice-over is also a way to manipulate the audience, identifying what the narrator is saying with the thoughts of the character at that moment of the story. In a way the voice-over contaminates the main character and adds subjectivity to the story. The subjectivity is a common feature of the film noir and it is present during the introduction of all the characters and their world. But the description is not only subjective but also ironic.
Even though there is a lot of “smell” in this novel, the way in which Grenouille comprehends these smells, or the way these “smells” pan out in his mind, is a lot more different to the way they pan out in average person’s head; also, the sheer way in which each of the vivid explanations for the aromas are put onto paper they have a huge impact on the mind of the reader. The literary devices that are used most commonly by Suskind are metaphors, the use of italics, and juxtaposition. The first few instances and the best few instances where we see the use or description of scents are when he is talking about different “locations”. The novel begins with a rather vivid description of 18th century France. Suskind compares the different odours often smelt in France to the odours we find the dirtiest now.
