It inquires (wrong word) readers to imagine and feel the prisoners in a cave all their life facing a blank wall where shadows are projected. The prisoners are chained up and have been there since their childhood. Whereas, in the movie The Truman show by Peter Wein. The movie is about Truman Burbank’s life who grew up in a fake world which is created by a television show director. Truman has no clue he is on a TV show until the end, and the show is aired 24/7 and watched by millions of people. Truman is brought up in the fake world and has been locked up since then. Both of these literary works have some similarities, like the control over the individual and the hidden truth. On the other hand, there exists a difference in how they find the real world. To begin, controlling an individual’s life since their childhood and controlling what they see can be very difficult when they experience the real world. In Allegory of the cave the individual is not allowed to move their head, neck, legs and…

    Like The Matrix, Inception, or The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley, The Truman show causes people to question their own existence in ways that can only be understood through liberal use of therapists and commercial sex workers. The reason for this is that every single shot is framed to give the audience the feeling that what they see before them is real. Most of the shots are given through static hidden cameras complete with the distortions that those cameras would bring. Peter Biziou, the…

    The content of literature comes in many forms. Various individuals believe that literature must portray reality in order to have an impact, however, others disagree. For instance, as once stated by English writer E.M. Forster, "A work of literature must provide more than factual accuracy or vivid physical reality... it must tell us more than we already know." The theory behind this quote is that works of literature do not necessarily have to completely exhibit only realistic and truthful subject…

This may be helpful for short term tasks and requirements, but in the long run always choosing the action that benefits everyone would ultimately hold people back. I will discuss both sides to utilitarianism, how…
