The House of Dies Drear Do you like the thought of ghost living in your house or someone else's house? What about trying to put the pieces together in a abstruseness like Sherlock Homes? If you do you would love the book or movie The House of Dies Drear. I went on a journey trying to find the differences in this amazing novel and star quality movie. I've got to say it wasn't easy trying to figure out which one I liked best, but I got to say I liked the film much more prominent then the novel.
Victor mentions the “sublime shapes of the mountains” in the chapter before the creature kills Elizabeth on their wedding night. This chapter is interesting structurally because it uses sublime settings to restore a sense of ease to Victor, before the next chapter shatters his false sense of security. However, while the use of sublime settings is sometimes used positively to reflect the beauty and power of nature as well as Victor’s mood, it is also used by Shelley to highlight Victor’s isolation – another example of how it is impossible to say whether places or characters are more important because they both co-operate in Gothic literature. Shelley uses the sea in particular as a place that reflects Victor’s anguish, isolation and nature as a tormented Gothic protagonist. At one point Victor states, “I looked upon the sea; it was to be my grave”.
This scene shows us bits and pieces of what seems like a vision. This scene also presents itself once again throughout the movie. The “visions” scene guides the movie as somewhat mysterious and mystical. The supernatural also plays a huge role in the film. Not only does Eve posses somewhat of a gift to uncover the truth about things but her Aunt Moselle is a spiritual guide for many of the residents of their small community in Louisiana.
For example, the filming techniques that Hitchcock uses in the movie are very effective.

Media and Lifestyle The art on the silver screens transcended onto the clothing that woman wore to personify a certain independence. Woman felt stylish and sophisticated even under the unstable economic climate. Technicolor, colored film, was also breaking through, allowing audiences to see the colors that are in style for the season. The color champagne became a red carpet classic for Hollywood favorites such as Jean Harlow and Loretta Young (figs 1-2). Children’s fashion was influenced by what Shirley Temple would wear in her films (Chancey, fig 9).
W’s or what Meg is going through in her life. Also, the movie adds scenes to the begging like Charles coming from under a blanket and telling the family about teratoma, the human teeth and hairball after Meg calls the twins "human hairballs” and Charles claiming he hears people talking to him in his head after dinner. I feel that the only reason Disney did this was to extend the movie time. Instead of adding useless scenes to the begging, they should have just stuck to the book, regardless if the movie isn’t long enough or not it will still be “good” because that’s the way the book depicts it.

Project Two Part One (Similar use of Elements of Form) Laurie Walsh The best element of form to achieve what the author is thinking and to get a better description of their emotions at that moment in time is Internal monologue. I personally picked this element, because it helps me as the reader to have a better understanding of how the author is feeling, and gives me a sense of how there voice sounds. Ti’yana Hall’s “I’ve Gone Through the Fire” she quotes ”Wow, grandma is really staying the night with us. I was thinking this was pretty strange, it was one of the many times I felt so happy and surprised” (para. 11).
“I was the princess in the castle in the sleeping woods… we all fell asleep, but the prince kissed me awake. Only me”, this is where Gemma finally claims she is Briar Rose. Yolen uses the fairy tale genre to tell the story of Gemma, and links certain aspects of the sleeping beauty story to Gemma’s story. The whole of Gemma’s version of the fairy tale is ironic. A fairy tale is supposed to be happy but Gemma uses it as an allegory for the holocaust.
