Satisfactory Essays
In society nowadays, we are run by the presence of media. We define our lives by the things we see and hear in the world today. Many old movies and books have been remade to meet the standards that we have set upon ourselves. The alterations in the literary work and motion pictures from before our time are usually not major. In some cases, the artistic views of the author and director are changed immensely. An ideal example of this modification process in a literary work would be the epic poem Beowulf, written in 1000 A.D.,compared to the movie Beowulf and Grendel, produced in 2005.
