Good afternoon/ Good morning class and teachers. In this speech I will explore the ways that the director, Amy Heckerling has transformed and re-contextualised Jane Austen’s popular novel ‘Emma’ into the satirical, humourous, parody film, ‘Clueless’. Storylines are often familiar in terms of plot, theme and purpose across many cultures and eras. There are common themes and plots that are used again and again within texts. While particular characteristics vary, the essence of the narratives are frequently simply reworked and adapted to suit different needs, times, circumstances, values and locations.
How has the study of Emma and its appropriate clueless developed your understanding of how context influenced values? -Select at least 2 significant moments of Austen’s Emma and analyse how these moments are considered in order to create meaning in Heckerling’s Clueless. In your response focus on ideas, context, values and language. Heckerling’s Clueless (1995) is transformed through Austen’s 19th Century novel, Emma, where the plot and characters have been transformed to suit Heckerling’s context and contemporary audience. Despite the shift in context from 19th century England to late 20th century Beverly Hills, Austen’s main plot and ideas have been retained to a great degree.

Different historical periods will give pieces of multicultural literature different meanings. Examples of this are with “Under the Banyan Tree” by R. K. Narayan and “Jewish Christmas” by Faye Moskowitz.

A comparative study of texts allow a responder to examine issues such as race, power and its application, gender, the thirst for revenge and the nature of institutions. A comparative study also challenges the responder to consider how these issues are represented in a specific context. Discuss the way in which the context of each text has impacted on the way two of these issues have been represented in Shakespeare's play, Othello and Sax & Davies’ film Othello. By comparing Shakespeare’s Othello, with Sax’s modern film adaptation of the play, the audience can appreciate and explore the extent to which context, or the surrounding influences, impact upon the key concerns in both texts.

While the consistency of human nature allows for common issues between texts to be possible, a drastic change of context will inevitably involve a change in social values. In this case those of Regency England and those of Post-modern America.
