Luhrmann adopted love to be a common emotion felt by the modern world. He doesn't do much to promote the love at first but towards the end, the love glimmers more brightly than Zeffirelli's version. Violently contrasting colours and long held shots on Romeo and Juliet in harmony with gentle, soothing music, is more appealing. Zeffirelli has made a stronger impression at the meeting of Romeo and Juliet. Their love is obviously shown, but is less appealing since dull, grainy colours and ridiculous costuming tend to lose the audience's attention.
Oliver Parker’s approach to Oscar Wilde’s play ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, was in a romantic but humorous way. Although this is true, Parker doesn’t accentuate Wilde’s vital concerns and deviates from comic elements of the play. Parker’s absurd representations of characters catches the eye of a larger audience compared to the satire, as well as many of the jokes opposed to the contextual ones. Parker’s extension of the sub-plot and inclusion of music established a stronger romantic comedy film. Although he was very honest and true to the dialogue of the play, he didn’t give the same essence and effect.
This allowed for the viewers to have little insight on how “careless” Nick and how “incurably dishonest” Jordan appeared to be in the novel (Fitzgerald 58). Without a side story of their own, the viewer’s perception of their personalities deviated. Instead, Nick and Jordan only served as the supporting roles to shed light on Gatsby and Daisy’s on-screen romance. This specific strategy of framing by Lurhmann highlights the imperative character development of Gatsby, providing Leonardo Dicaprio with the platform to appear as a skilled and effective
Darcy’s proposals help to manifest his personal growth by showing the difference in his manner, rationale, and result. His haughty words and actions are the crux of his indifference towards the feelings of others in the beginning of the novel. Although Mr. Darcy is ignorant of his own highfalutin attitude at first, the rejection of his proposal by Elizabeth is just the tocsin he needs to salvage the small amount of respect she still had for him. Through her rejection, he comes to terms with his own pride and prejudice against Elizabeth and her family. Also, he realizes that she is not one to marry for money or social status, but she wants to marry a man that she truly loves, which is a surprise to him.
This reluctance to get ri... ... middle of paper ... ...acter and create somewhat of a new kind of villain. While Claudius is a lustful, greedy, corrupt, manipulating, deceiving murderer that will stop at nothing to achieve his own powerful ambitions, he also has a lighter caring and loving side that he shows to the public. Though unbeknownst to the public his omissions of guilt would be seen as positive if not for his immediate declination for achieving forgiveness in favor of keeping his power, queen, and fortunes. It is things like this that make Claudius such a complex character. He acknowledges that there are right and wrong things to do but often refuses to do the right things because doing wrong is more beneficial to him.
Lear sees Goneril as being nothing more than an ungratefully child with a beastly attitude (Lind). Shakespeare shows how money and power are usually the root of all evil and can affect a person ethical values and moral judgment. Albany must have been blind by love when he married that witch! As for Lear, a father by blood has no choice but love her and her evil sister. Regan, Lear 's middle child, keenly fulfills the role of a deviant woman by demonstrating a violent nature, "first by plucking poor Gloucester 's eyes out, and then by killing her own servant" (Teach).
Gatsby is a tragic hero. He has nothing but good intentions and aspires for love, while Myrtle is simply shown as a foolish woman who is so absorbed in greed that she sacrifices her morals and sanity, in exchange for money and higher status. Gatsby, unlike Myrtle, maintains redeemable qualities until his murder. Everything he does is for his love, Daisy, because he wants only the best for her even if his life turns to ruins as a result. In contrast, Myrtle who has the same aspirations as Gatsby, exhibits impure intentions.
His moral deficiency that defines him as an antihero--and prevents him from being the hero of the story though he is the protagonist--is stressed throughout the novel but is also mainly tempered by his immense ability to love Catherine and the sympathy that his character receives as a result of that love. He is hardened like stone cliffs by his immorality, but he is also softened by his love for Catherine; he is a villain but also a hero. His duality as a character ties into the theme of doubles that connects the two generations of the story while allowing Brontë to point out the imperfections of mankind and our inability to always be a hero.
This analogy, although completely inaccurate, is used in a favourable way to make a point. The two ideas are unconnected because Pandarus creates assumed similarities between the man going to the temple and Troilus’ meeting Criseyde, but the conclusion is not accurate since there are more differences than similarities in the situations. No one would assume a man is eating images while Troilus having an affair with Criseyde is believable. Pandarus also uses prose to script... ... middle of paper ... ...ping up appearances to take a chance so Pandarus was essential to push the plot along. Pandarus’ ideas to further the love were too artificial to ever be genuine.
Dorian exceeds Henry in Pater’s philosophy through his active experimentation and desire for beauty, but Dorian fails to live up to all of Pater’s expectations due to his inability to separate morality for art. Through the novel Henry’s conversations with Dorian and Basil Hallward depict him as an invested disciple of Pater. Henry’s insight into to Pater’s philosophy can best be seen when he states that, “the only horrible thing in this world is ennui” or boredom (Wilde 220). Henry echoes Pater’s distaste for the formation of habits and not having new experiences that bring the individual out of their daily rut. Henry is the one who advises Dorian to live his life to fullest and to appreciate art and beauty, but the reader is not privy to Henry’s private life or his internal thoughts.
