Details: This essay asks you to write a formal, analytical essay that explores the way two of our filmmakers approach the same scene or part of a scene. You can choose any scene the “seduction” scene in Othello It is an analysis, which means that although you will have to know well what happens in the two films AND in the text before you begin to write, your essay will not simply describe those differences. You are to think about how each presents an interpretation of the text; think about the effect of the differences and how they contribute to the overall interpretations of the play in each film.
- Structure a comparison;
- Construct a thesis and argument;
- Use evidence from both the text and the films and item them properly;
- Edit a formal paper correctly in MLA form;
- Discuss films as interpretations of the Shakespearean text.
- Don’t waste time telling saying what happens.
- Don’t say everything about the scene: focus on the best arguments;
- Choose the scene that you think you have the most interesting and original things to say about;
- You don’t need secondary sources for this paper but if you use them, you must cite both direct quotations and ideas that come from another source
- If you can, tie the interpretation of the scene to a larger interpretive choice in the films: but remember that most of your time should be taken up with a discussion of the scene itself.
- All claims should be backed up with evidence.
