The cast in the movies depicted the characters in the play as described by Henrik Ibsen.

For example, if we look at the big picture, we have a teacher/student or authority/subject relationship between Miss Moore and the students. If we look at the smaller picture we
The motif of the story was violence. If you ever do anything violent it will catch up to you in many ways you cannot imagine.

The best fictional movie of World War II is “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” directed by Mark Herman. The movie is based on the novel written by John Boyne and the story is told from a German child’s view during the Holocaust. The general message the director and writer so vividly portrayed is that of a child’s innocence and young friendship. “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” has a good storyline, great choice in actors, and overall it was thought-provoking and effective in showing a different view of World War II, despite a few discrepancies in authenticity, the movie is a must see.
The stories would not have the same effect if they were from anyone else’s perspective as they put the reader in place of people who are uneducated. The seven players lack of education serves as their downfall, while the reader learns with Sylvia through Miss Moore’s lesson.
When it comes to the subject of history, doesn’t it make more sense to learn what really happened rather than from a fable? History can be taught in various ways, one is through historical facts. As harsh as these facts are to learn from at times, such as the brutality of the Holocaust, they are a better way to grasp the realities of the past. Teaching history through fiction is an ineffective way to teach students because it is misleading and gives a distorted view.

In the beginning of the story, the first sign of symbolism is the play that the son, little Guy, is reciting his lines for. The play has significance because it serves purpose to the boy because every moment in the story he is worried about not forgetting his lines. His parents, Guy and Lili, see the play as a sign of hope for little Guy. This is because they want him to be able to live a better life then the struggling one they have now. You can see this when Guy mentions in the story that since it is taking him so long to retrieve a job at the sugar mill he thinks it would be best if he enlists his son early for the same job. This statement caused the mother to quickly reply, “I don’t want him on that list for a young boy to be on any list like that might influence his destiny…” (241). This shows how she is willing to keep helping her son to get better with his lines to influence him never to give up on dreams. Also, since the play is about a hero who helped slaves gain independence in Haiti, it makes the parents prouder of little Guy to be a part of such a historical play.
Firstly, Joyce incorporates multiple figures of speech and elements of design to express a purpose through the events that occur in the story. As mentioned before, this story is written in first person perspective of a boy who lives with his aunt and uncle. The perspective best allows readers to understand what this boy encounters every day and his opinion on certain topics. Furthermore, it also allows readers to perceive the feelings this boy has for a girl. For example, the author mentions the boy playing and says, “The cold air stung us and we played till our bodies glowed. Our shouts echoed in the silent street. The career of our play brought us through the dark muddy lanes behind the houses…” (Joyce, 1). This quote highlights the lively and childish fun the boy has with his friends.
