  • Comparison Between Novel And Film Version Of Lord Of The Flies - 553 words
    Comparison Between Novel and Film Version of "Lord of the Flies" Raja Kundu Many novels are so successful that producers can't wait to adapt the story into a film. The majority of times, however, the original novel is much stronger than the movie because it is able to capture the emotions of each character, all the symbols and meaningful events. Due to the novel's flexibility, readers are able to extend the use of their imagination. Similarly, this was the case with William Golding's masterpiece, "The Lord of the Flies." Overall, the novel is far superior to the film because it has thorough descriptions of a character's feelings and depictions of symbolic meaning concerning the objects and i ...

  • A Mid Summer Nights Dream Film Analysis - 1,207 words
    A Mid Summer Night's Dream Film Analysis A Mid Summer Night's Dream Film Analysis A Mid summer Night's Dream is another entry into Shakespeare's recent rebirth on film. Michael Hoffman's film dose not stay true to the text, but he must take liberties to allow for this classic story to be entertaining to today's audience. In this essay I will discuss the differences between the text vision and the film vision of this story from the historical setting, the time placement, Hoffman's personal adaptations, and finally Hoffman's character adaptations. In Michael Hoffman's film of William Shakespeare's a Midsummer Night's Dream, Hoffman has made some changes to the location and historical aspects o ...

Autumn Sonata (1978) and From the Life of the Marionettes (1980) were critical successes, however, although the latter failed at the box office. Fanny and Alexander (1983), a rich and fantastic portrait of childhood in a theatrical family, was regarded as one of his finest films and won an Academy Award for best foreign language film of 1983.

    BARRON'S BOOK NOTES ERICH MARIA REMARQUE'S ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT ^^^^^^^^^^ERICH MARIA REMARQUE: THE AUTHOR AND HIS TIMES Born Erich Paul Remark on June 22, 1898, he grew up in a Roman Catholic family in Osnabruck in the province of Westphalia, Germany--a city in the northwest part of what is now West Germany. He adored his mother, Anna Maria, but was never close to his father, Peter. The First World War effectively shut him off from his sisters, Elfriede and Erna. Peter Remark, descended from a family that fled to Germany after the French Revolution, earned so little as a bookbinder that the family had to move 11 times between 1898 and 1912. The family's poverty drove Remarque as a ...

  • Hamlet And Gibson - 655 words
    Hamlet And Gibson The 3rd film version of Hamlet staring Mel Gibson varies in many ways to original play, "The Tragedy of Hamlet." The film version starts out with the morbid funeral of Hamlet, the deceased king of Denmark. Joining fellow mourners was Hamlet's son, Hamlet and Gertrude, Hamlet Sr.'s former wife. This conflicts with the play for the first scene shows the ghost of the king while the guards keep watch. In the film, we do not see this scene for a good fifteen to twenty minutes or so. And when the apparition does show up, it is all in one night where Hamlet is present the first time we see the ghost. To keep an audience at a movie, you must follow some sort of flow that keeps the ...

  • Lord Of The Flies - 821 words
    Lord Of The Flies Lord of the Flies Director Peter Brook based Lord of the Flies on the novel by William Golding. The film, released in 1963, is the tale of a group of upscale British schoolchildren who are being flown out of London to the supposed safety of the South Pacific before war erupts. Their airplane crashes and the lads are left to fend for themselves on a remote island. The storyline takes the boys from innocence to savagery. The film did not receive rave reviews from critics. The film version takes away some of the creative imagination that comes from reading the story, but its images are as shocking as one might imagine little boys turned into violent savages(Webster, Apollo Gu ...

  • Of Mice And Menbook Vs Movie - 563 words
    Of Mice And Men...Book Vs. Movie Of Mice and Men: Movie Vs. Book The movie 1992 movie version of Of Mice and Men shows differences along with similarities to the book written by John Steinbeck. Differences were common mainly within the plot of the story. The first notable variation was in the beginning. The book started off with George and Lennie walking on a dirt road near a swamp while the movie started off with George on a train with a flashback. This shows how the movie differs by starting off in a different time frame than the book. Another case in point of a small but noticeable plot change was when Lennie kills the puppy.

  • Rebecca By Du Maurier - 882 words
    Rebecca By Du Maurier As Daphne du Maurier finished her novel, she said to herself, "So it was. A finished novel. Title, Rebecca. I wondered if my publisher would think it stupid, overdone. Luckily (for me) he did not. Nor did the readers when it was published." Little did du Maurier know, her novel ended up becoming a great success. Soon after, Alfred Hitchcock made a film version of Rebecca that soon became an even greater success than the novel itself. There are many opinions as to which version is more effective. I believe that the novel was far more effective that the movie version for a number of reasons. One of the reasons that I feel that the original novel Rebecca was more effective ...

  • West Side Story With Romeo And Juliet - 1,917 words
    West Side Story With Romeo And Juliet What would Romeo and Juliet be like if Juliet hadn't died? What if Paris killed Romeo, instead of vice versa?

Well, just take a look at West Side Story, and you will have your answers. It is impossible for anyone familiar with both texts to not note the obvious major similarities between the two plays. From the opening scenes in both, up through the rumble in West Side Story/death of Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet, the plays mirror each other ...

    William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet The children of two warring families fall in love with tragic consequences for all concerned. Shakespeare's play has been subject to several adaptations in the centuries since its first appearance, including movement to other media (painting, music). But in the twentieth century there have been three which have surpassed adaptation and significantly reformulated it for their media: Sergei Prokofiev's 1935 ballet, the 1957 Laurents / Sondheim / Bernstein / Robbins Broadway stage musical West Side Story and this film. Though there have been countless other film versions, including interesting and stimulating updates and adaptations like Zeffirelli's controv ...
