  • Harrison Bergeron And 2081 Comparison Essay

    When compared to stories and novels, movies never seem to be the preference. Take Harry Potter for instance -- people would much rather read an eloquent storyline than a movie with a dull diegesis. This theory, however, is inaccurate when one compares Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron” and Chandler Tuttle’s 2081.

    The book The Glass Menagerie is based on a story that is told by the narrator’s memory. This in effect has impacted the overall style of the story and the impressions that the audience observes throughout the book/play. Also the fact that it is based off of memory makes the story seem to have a poetic influence that exaggerates the drama and increases the level of emotional expression.
