Transcript of "The Hitchhiker" Project

"The Hitchhiker" Lucille Fletcher Ronald Adam drives to california from Brooklyn.
While he is driving, a man stands infront of his car, and to avoid hitting the man, he swerves and dies, but he doesn't know he's dead.He gets creeped out by a hitchhiker who seems to be everywhere, when he calls his mom to keep from going mad, he finds out he is dead. Protagonist: Ronald Adams
Antagonist: The hitchhiker Man vs. Self
Ronald is having trouble with himself
because he thinks he is going crazy when he
sees the same man(hitchhiker) everywher.
There was no resolution Man vs. Fate
Ronald doesn't now that he is dead,
and when he finds out that he is, he tries to find out who he is.( Not believeing it) foreshadowing:
to hint what is going
to happen later on in the story. In "the Hitchhiker," the
part when it says "- or pick up any
strangers on the road" foreshadows
the later part when he is going to see a hitchhiker on the
side of the road. In "The Hitchhiker", the part when
it says, "I only knew that from now on, I must not let myself be alone on the road for one moment," foreshadows the later part when he picks up a hitchhiker girl later on the road. Similarity #1 In "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Hitchhiker" is that in "The Tell-Tale Heart" the narrorator is
constantly checking up on the old man, just like how the hitchhiker is always constantly checking up on Ronald Adams. Similarity #2, both the narrator in " The Tell-Tale Heart" and Ronald Adams in "The Hitchhiker" denied something important. The narrator denied killing the old man, while Ronald denide that he was dead. Similarity #3, both the narrator in "The Tell-Tale Heart" and Ronald Adams in "The Hitchhiker" went mad, or crazy, in the end of the story. Differences:
1.The time setting in "The Tell-Tale Heart" was more later on in the time line, while "The Hitchhiker" was set in a more modern time, not exactly, but close enough.
2.In "The Tell-Tale Heart" the main person killed someone, while in "The Hitchhiker" the main character was the one killed.
3.In "The Tell-Tale Heart" the setting was always the house, while in "The Hitchhiker" it was always changing. http://knowotr.blogspot.com/2008/04/lucille-fletcher-1912-2000.html citation for background picture:http://www.gapyear.com/articles/28280/the-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy http://www.theroadwanderer.net/route66.htm http://www.inetgiant.com/tags/the-man-with-the-golden-voice
