The Crucible Comparison

This story was written by Arthur Miller in 1953. He wrote this story to show his society what was going to happen to them if they didn't get straighten their heads and to show them how foolish they were for acting like they were in the 1600's. They were going through a time called the Cold War. People were being arrested for saying things like a communist. This is kind of what was happening during the Salem Witchcraft. This is the way the society was going in Millers time. There were three differences in the book and the movie. The book added in the rooster crowing in the background at the end when John was about to be taken to be hung which was very helpful because it showed some different symbols. A difference in the movie was that there were more girls at the beginning casting spells. It wasn't just Abigail and a few of her friends. The movie also includes that Reverend Hale beat Tituba into confessing that she was in the woods conjuring spirits with Abagail. These are a few of the differences I recognized in the movie and book.

If I had to choose which one I liked better I would probably have to say the movie was better. I think this only because you could watch what was going on instead of having to imagine everything.

I liked the play all around though because it was something that interested me and kept me wanting to see what happened next. Plays are my favorite types of literature because there is a lot of action and there are a lot more characters in a play. This play was a good play and I enjoyed reading it and listening to it. Overall this play was a very well written play with a good message and it was very interesting. It was also a true story which also made it

    The movie itself is very much different from the book. The story was also changed with some of the plot. The movie and the book are both still following the same story line. Along with the same ending. This is what I have noticed between the movie and the book. Number one is that the old man was cruel to the young man. Unlike in the book where it says and I quote “The old man had never wronged me”. That was huge difference. This change also gave him a different reason to kill the old man. That was…

I am comparing the scene where John and Abby meet in the woods before she has the pin inside her and the scene where Elizabeth and John meet near the ending. The theme when John and Abby meet in woods would be “Good vs. Evil”. The theme for when Elizabeth and John meetup would be “Compassion…

This is a pretty big key in the book because this is the time Jonas becomes the receiver of memory. Towards the end of the movie, there was a pretty significant…

    There is quite a few differences between the book and movie The Outsiders. The book is written by S.E. Hinton. We have been reading the outsiders and we were wondering which was better the movie or the book.

In the book I pictured them as these tough looking kids but when I saw the movie they actually don’t look as tough as…
