Comparative Study (Part 2)
Transcript of Comparative Study (Part 2)
and reconsider how your answer has satisfied the question. 4. Make your point in each paragraph and weave between each of the
three texts through the use of comparative language. 3. Introduce your texts to the examiner and propose how the
comparing of these texts will satisfy the question. 2. Start to brainstorm the key moments from the texts that will
illustrate your understanding of the question being asked. Underline the key words and make sure you understand
what the question is expecting of you before you start your plan. 1. What is the question asking you to do? Paragraph 4 - The closing of the texts The closing scene in Brooklyn sees Eilis trying her best to make an attempt at doing the right thing by everybody. One may argue that it is too little too late but she tries nonetheless. The secret was the undoing of her. She was forced to finish her last few hours in Enniscorthy in a state of anxiety which was never part of the plan. The theme is very much at play here - the revelation of her marriage to Tony was a secret which was only going to be exposed when Eilis saw fit. The control was taken away from her once Mrs. Kehoe informed Mrs. Kelly and that ensured the chaos that followed. Eilis packing quietly as her mother stayed isolated in her bedroom is testement to the destructive power of deception and the sad and lonely image of Eilis packing her belongings is a powerful reminder of the human condition. Eilis's ego may have
got in the way of telling the truth. Either way, the attention
put upon her from the locality and the romantic
connection with Jim Farrell made her feel
special, important, even validated. The Lonesome West ....the closing scene in The Lonesome West is devoid of the same emotion that was present in Brooklyn. Eilis and her mother are barely speaking due to the secret but the opposite is the case in the play. Valene and Coleman physically express their frustration of years of lies and deceit and with the aid of a shotgun and a knife both brothers battle it out. The revelation that Coleman killed Valene's dog was the turning point in these last moments and the sadness felt in Brooklyn is replaced by anticipation of a massive row in Mcdonagh's drama. We are not disappointed. Their exchange, both physical and verbal, is explosive and we are enthralled as to how it will be resolved. The theme of appearance versus reality is played out right to the end as the audience does not know if Coleman has loaded the gun or is just giving the appearance that he has. In contrast to the play and novel, the movie gives us the closure that we may have been craving for in the other stories..... I'm Not Scared The closing scene in I'm Not Scared gives us a great opportunity to reflect on the theme of appearance versus reality. Pino being chosen to murder the child provides a fabulous twist. The appearance of this horrible task being straight forward was short-lived due to his presumption that the only child held captive in the barn was Filippo. In fact the reality was more shocking as Pino shoots his own son in a case of mistaken identity. This was a gripping twist and contrasted with the other texts as nothing in the other texts could mirror the catastrophe of a father inflicting a near fatal wound on their own child. The malicious intent shown in The Lonesome West was shared between two equally charged adults. The secret that Eilis revealed had emotionally painful consequences for those involved but the movie's treatment of the theme provided a more serious and dramatic conclusion which saw the life of a child hanging in the balance.
