Explore the changes of a story/theme/character
Compare and contrast one of the readings with a contemporary work of fiction or nonfiction. Any of the books and stories we have looked at can be used. We saw an example with Pygmalion last week. If we were to take Pygmalion into even more contemporary works, we could find the story in the newer play “The Shape of Things.” In that story, Pygmalion/Higgins is a woman, and the “statue’ is a man with poor self image. How do the changes in a story change according to the time, place, etc.?
Another way would be to look at a character through the lens of a hero’s journey.
Some other ideas: How does the historical affect the contemporary? Where does it diverge? How does a story change according to culture or time? Why is the book or work you chose one that has been adapted today?
At a hypothetical dimension the Mimesis-model can be adequately tested by another Aristotelian idea, that of Catharsis. This would involve that a long way from decreasing men to culprits of savagery, introduction to the fake viciousness of sex entertainment - with all its creative shows and limitations would mitigate them of the brutal miens that lay 'covered up' in their mind, similarly that, state, a thriller may give us delight without inducing brutality and blood-thirst. The Catharsis-model fits especially well to the very idea of sex entertainment. Established on a much-bore witness to human want for a periodic rupture of unthinkable, pornography will in general speak to circumstances and emotions that likely could be standoffish and frequently remote from what the genuine social practice is. Japan - a nation with one of the most minimal assault rates around the world continues a tremendous explicit industry that 'practices' in brutality and sexual control. The counter sex entertainment keen neglects to get a handle on this significant qualification between social reality and innocuous dream. As far as observational proof, mental investigations on the supposed relationship between's presentation to pornography and fierce action are, best case scenario, uncertain. Authentic and cross-societal examination is similarly unpromising for the Mimesis-contention. Pornography, in its cutting edge sense, is an extremely ongoing creation. But then, the misuse of ladies by men had originated before it by a great many years. In the meantime, political frameworks that clung to the methodical concealment of obscene portrayals, for example, the Soviet Union or current Islamic states, had not been less exploitative or savage. But, numerous enemy of pornography scholars have demanded restriction, notwithstanding the way that this request has created an ungainly union with good conventionalists from the Right. Whenever passed, the 1984 Minneapolis law would have rethought 'sex entertainment' as a criminal offense, particular from 'foulness'. This would have enabled ladies to make common move against anybody associated with the generation, or conveyance of erotic entertainment, in light of the fact that they had been 'hurt' by its depiction of ladies. In the energetic expressions of Andrea Dworkin (1990:224) 'we will realize that we are free when the sex entertainment never again exists. For whatever length of time that it exists, we should comprehend that we are the ladies in it: utilized by a similar power, subject to a similar valuation, as the detestable prostitutes who ask for additional.' If just, sex entertainment was, without a doubt, the mother of all malicious. At that point sexism could be evacuated at one, straightforward, administrative stroke. Be that as it may, tragically, sexism, savagery and misuse are endemic to the monetary structure of the advanced society and inescapable of every one of our media. Erotic entertainment appears to have been singled out as a substitute for all types of sexual preferences in this day and age. The long-standing social shame and visual trustworthiness of the business made it an obvious objective to right-wingers and left-wingers alike. Restriction has not worked previously and there is no motivation to trust that it will work later on. I trust that the main reasonable answer for the sex entertainment issue is the accurate inverse of control, in particular help for 'the Politics of Representation.
