Text vs. Media


Jane in "While We Were Here" (2012)- Unemotional- Disinterested- Bland/Cold- Wants a younger man- Chooses neither - gets her independence

Text vs. Media

Lydia in "Souls Belated"- Emotional - Exagerration- Passionate- Wants to be independent- Society's expecations destroy her desires

"Babylon Revisited" vs. Kramer vs. Kramer

"'I suppose I did, from time to time, but Helen and I were getting along badly. When I consented to the guardianship, I was flat on my back in a sanitarium and the market had cleaned me out. I knew I’d acted badly, and I thought if it would bring any peace to Helen, I’d agree to anything. But now it’s different. I’m functioning. I’m behaving damn well, so far as-'”

Like Mr. Kramer, Charlie takes responsibility and changes for his child. He fights for Honoria the way Mr. Kramer fights for his son

"Howl" by Allen GinsbergReading to yourself vs. reading outloud

Passionate tone: “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness... angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of the night”

Humor: “Who copulated ecstatic and insatiate with a bottle of beer a sweetheart a package of cigarettes a candle and fell off the bed, and continued along the floor and down the hall and ended fainting on the wall with a vision of ultimate cunt and come eluding the last gyzym of consciousnes”

Sonny's Blues

by James Baldwin

Like Mr. Kramer, Charlie has his faults - he is a drunk and was once incapable of taking care of his daughter, Honoria

“...The baby brother I’d never known looked out from the depths of his private life, like an animal waiting to be coaxed into the light."

"...Everything I did seemed awkward to me, and everything I said sounded freighted with hidden meaning… I was trying to find something out about my brother”

Think about these means of media in relation to the text. How do they differ, how do they compare?

When I read it to myself, the tone was angry. When I listened to it, there is humor and the tone is more casual

The disconnect/awkwardness and connection betwen the brothers is visible in the film

"Daddy"by Sylvia Plath

“Not God but a swastika / So black no sky could squeak through. / Every woman adores a Facist, / The boot in the face, the brute / Brute heart of a brute like you”

Angry tone when Plath reads it out loud

“And I said I do, I do. So daddy, I am finally through...Daddy, you can lie back now”

Plath's voice softens when she reads this - is she finally through? Has her anger faded the way that her tone has?
