<오만과 편견: 문학과 영화 비교& 영화 장면 분석하기>
I. 들어가기 전에
영화는 Joe Wright 감독의 2006년작 버전을, 문학작품은 김지선 번역의 천지인 출판사 버전을 택하였다. 그리고 11번째 sequence 중 주인공이 외삼촌, 외숙모와 함께 다아시의 저택을 방문하는 장면(다아시 저택으로 들어가는 shot부터 조지아나와 함께있는 다아시와 눈이 마주칠 때까지)을 선택하여 분석하였다. 특별히 11번째 시퀀스 중 이 장면을 선택한 이유는 내용적으로 형식적으로 모두 맘에 들었기 때문이다. 우선 내용적으로, 이 장면이 주인공인 엘리자벳이 다아시에 대한 생각이 모두 ‘편견’이었음을 깨닫고 난 후의 감정을 너무나 잘 표현하였기 때문이며 형식적으로는 11번째 장면이 위에서 찍은 장면이 유난히 많았기 때문이다. 따라서 이 장면을 선택하게 되었다.
II. 영화의 Shot 분석
1> 엘리자벳과 외삼촌 외숙모와 함께 다아시의 저택을 방문하면서 처음 나오는 shot : 이 샷은 우선 익스트림 롱 샷으로 찍혔으며 Bird’s eye view angle shot에서 eye level agle shot으로의 변환을 보여 주는 보기 드문 shot이다. 이 변환은 한 쇼트 내에서 이루어지며 크레인 쇼트로 찍었음을 알 수 있다. 또한 쇼트 내에서의 심도가 돋보이는 장면이기도 하다. 멀리 있는 나무들까지도 선명하게 보이는 것으로 보아 광각렌즈를 사용했음을 추측해볼 수도 있다.
2> 다아시의 저택을 멀리서 보여 주는 shot : 그 다음 바로 자연스레(연속편집) 익스트림 롱 샷으로 다아시의 저택을 보여 준다. 이것은 일종의 설정 샷으로 공간적인 준거 틀로 사용되며 또 다아시의 저택의 웅장함을 보여줌으로써 얼마나 그가 엘리자벳과는 달리 지위가 높은지에 대해서도 암시한다. 또 이 쇼트는 눈높이에서 트래킹 샷으로 찍었음을 알 수 있다.
3> 웅장함에 놀라는 shot : 엘리자벳이 다아시의 저택을 보고 놀라면서 동시에 복잡한 감정을 보여주는 샷이다. 자신이 왜 여기까지 오게 되었는지에 대해 혼란스러운 마음, 이렇게 재력을 가진 사람의 청혼을 거절하였다는 것을 깨닫는 데에서 오는 자신에 대한 놀라움 등이 있었을 것이다. 또 외숙모와 외삼촌도 그 규모에 놀란 입을 다물지 못한다. 이 샷은 미디엄 클로즈업 샷으로 눈높이에서 찍은 아이레벨 샷이다.
4> 천장에 그려진 그림을 보며 걷는 shot : 다아시의 저택 천장에 그려진 그림을 보며 걷는 엘리자베스 베넷과 앞서 가는 외숙모, 외삼촌 그리고 하녀장이 가는 샷이다. Bird’s eye view 쇼트이면서 롱 샷으로 찍혔다. 거의 수직으로 배우들을 내려다보며 찍은 것인데, 감독은 저택의 압도적인 크기를 강조하기 위해 이렇게 찍지 않았나 싶다.
5> 그림을 비춰주는 shot: 이것은 주관적인 시점 샷이라고 할 수 있다. 왜냐하면 바로 앞의 샷에서 위를 보며 걷는 주인공의 모습을 비춰주고 그 다음 자연스레 그녀가 바라보고 있는 그림을 보여주기 때문이다. 또한 이 쇼트는 크레인으로 찍은 것으로 , 높은 천장의 그림을 찍고 위에서 아래로 내려 오면서 외삼촌과 외숙모를 롱 샷으로 보여준다.
6> 엘리자벳을 클로즈업한 shot : 그림을 보고 있는 엘리자벳의 표정을 아이레벨로 클로즈업한 샷이다. 그녀가 다아시의 섬세한 심미안을 점차 알게 되는 부분이라 클로즈업으로 처리한 것 같다.
7> 조각상을 보여 주는 shot : 여기서부터는 다아시가 수집하는 조각들을 모아둔 곳 (조각 전시관)으로 옮겨 간다. 조각상의 얼굴을 정면에서 측면으로 천천히 보여 주는 샷이다. 이것도 주인공의 시점으로 본 샷인 주관적 시점 샷으로 핸드 헬드샷, 클로즈업 샷에 해당된다. Steadicam shot임을 알 수 있는 이유는 화면이…...

Chapter 1 I t is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. ‘My dear Mr. Bennet,’ said his lady to him one day, ‘have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?’ Mr. Bennet replied that he had not. ‘But it is,’ returned she; ‘for Mrs. Long has just been here, and she told me all about it.’ Mr. Bennet made no answer. ‘Do you not want to know who has taken it?’ cried his wife impatiently. ‘YOU want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it.’ This was invitation enough. ‘Why, my dear, you must know, Mrs. Long says that Netherfield is taken by a young man of large fortune from the north of England; that he came down on Monday in a chaise and four to see the place, and was so much delighted with it, that he agreed with Mr. Morris immediately; that he is to take possession before Michaelmas, and some of his Pride and Prejudice servants are to be in the house by the end of next week.’ ‘What is his name?’ ‘Bingley.’ ‘Is he married or single?’ ‘Oh!

...she died in July in 1817 at the age of 41 years old. But the exact reasons of her death remain vague, some say it was Addison syndrome, other say Hodgkin’s disease, there are several hypotheses. The famous English author is buried in the North aisle of Winchester Cathedral. * Main works She started by writing poems when she was 12 years old. By the time she was 18, she started creating longer and more sophisticated pieces of writing. Around 1795, at 20 years old, she composed, Elinor and Marianne, which is known today as Sense and Sensibility, a work of romantic fiction which portrays the life and loves of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne. In 1796, Jane began a second novel First Impressions, which has become today Pride and Prejudice and which she completed one year later. And two years later, a third novel, Susan, the previous name for Northanger Abbey, a satire of the popular gothic novel which was very famous during the 18th century. She started to compose another novel in 1804, The Watsons, which is described as "a study in the harsh economic realities of dependent women's lives". In 1815, she changed her publisher and wrote: Emma, the story of an orphan girl who tries to marry a friend without having any experience. Her lack of experience creates humor through the entire story. She composed another novel whose first version was published in 1816: The Elliots. * Historical context * Class division At the beginning of nineteenth century,......

Pride and Prejudice

...Pride and Prejudice The first line of Pride and Prejudice reveals that a man who has money desires a wife. In the novel, Jane Austen criticizes British society and social expectations of the 19th century. Austen does this by her use of satire in her portrayal of her characters and in multiple situations. Her use of satire is to challenge the way things were in that time. Specific characters are the opposite of what they should be. However, some are just as they should be, and Austen pokes fun at them. The use of this sarcasm and irony is present throughout the novel. A common theme Austen is trying to portray is that marriage should be for love and not for financial reasons, which was expected in the 19th century. Elizabeth is a character who goes against this expectation. When Mr. Collins and Mr. Darcy propose to her, she denies them both, despite the fact that they are successful and wealthy; she wants to marry for love. Austen intentionally makes the relationship between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy challenging to show that she is really in love with him at the end. Then, Elizabeth basically laughs in Mr. Collins’s face when proposed to. She denies his request simply because she does not love him. However, Mrs. Bennett wants Elizabeth to marry him because he is next in line to inherit the family home. Elizabeth is different from other women of her time because she is not ditsy or superficial as many were then. A character who shows Austen’s satire is Mr. Collins. He is...

Pride and Prejudice

...Mikaele Nickel P&P Final English 12 #04 May 27, 2013 Pride and Prejudice In fact, Pride and Prejudice was originally entitled First Impressions. However, the novel is not only about first impressions. Although we can find the first impressions about the characters through the first few chapters, this book shows us the effects of those impressions on the individual characters--prejudices of the characters. The story almost evenly describes the defects of Fitzwilliam Darcy who show "pride" at the beginning of the novel; he speaks carelessly and insultingly to Elizabeth Bennet, and George Wickham who deceives others on purpose and conceals his truth-less character. Elizabeth misunderstood both of them at first because of her prejudice. At first I have assumed that the title of this novel alludes clearly to Darcy's "pride" and Elizabeth's "prejudice." I also thought that the novel tells how Darcy and Elizabeth overcome their pride and prejudice. However, I realize that this over simplifies the author's purpose. We can certainly see that Elizabeth has "pride" as much as Darcy has. She is proud of her intelligence, comprehension and independence. Actually, Darcy's pride disappears quite a bit early in this novel. By chapter 6, he is starting to change his attitudes towards her. He is humbling himself to be close to her. This shows Darcy's change: "But no sooner had he made it to clear to himself and his friends that she had hardly a......

Marxism in Pride and Prejudice

...Shortly after dropping out of the Trotskyist movement in 1978, I embarked on a systematic reading project of the world?s greatest novels. Since I had made the decision to begin writing fiction myself, I wanted to learn the craft from the masters. Additionally, I wanted a change of pace from the hard-core Marxist literature I had been reading for 11 years. (Within two years, however, I had returned to radical politics, largely under the impetus of the Central American revolution.) I soon discovered that some of these masterpieces left me cold, including those written by Henry James, Joseph Conrad and especially Jane Austen. Although I would never deny that they were great writers, their words did not resonate with me. After reading 50 or so pages of ?Pride and Prejudice,? I found myself wondering what all the hype was about. I was left cold by an endless round of country balls, dinner parties and arch dialogue that always sounded self-conscious and somewhat artificial. To illustrate: Elizabeth Bennett, the major character who is based on Jane Austen herself, is in one of her frequent 'cutting' exercises with Fitzwilliam D?Arcy--reminiscent of an old Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy movie. Like Hepburn and Tracy, these two spend most of their time hating each other until they finally discover that they really are in love. (I myself had a different take on the matter. In my experience, people generally start off in love and then discover that they really hate each...

Pride and Prejudice

...In Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s depiction of womanhood is both varied and expansive. A woman can be gentle in spirit, incapable of finding ill in others. Daughters can be impossibly “silly” in their romantic endeavors. Wives are sometimes obnoxious, meddling fools with easily disturbed nerves. Even women linked by their intelligence, such as Charlotte and Elizabeth, differ in terms of practicality and adherence to social norms. There is, however, a factor that distinguishes intelligent females in the novel from the unintelligent: their insistence on maintaining privacy from male influence. From a feminist perspective, Jane Austen’s emphasis on female personal space implies that intelligent women must secure privacy in order to remain independent, freethinking individuals within a patriarchal society. By linking privacy with mental growth, Austen takes part in a larger network of feminist literature in which private space is equated with female creativity and freedom from domestic duties. Therefore, Austen’s examination of privacy serves as a critique of limitations on female intellectual growth. The issue of female privacy is perhaps most associated with feminist works published long after Pride and Prejudice, but Austen’s depiction of the matter can be seen as a precursor to these later arguments. Both Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Virginia Woolf published works pertaining to the physical and mental privacy needed for women. A Room of One’s Own, for instance, clearly......

Pride and Prejudice

...Conflict between Love and Prejudice Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice, portrays the social atmosphere that existed in the 18th century. Specifically the emphasis is on the importance of courtship and the effects of social standing on marriage. The story that is given is the Bennett family trying to find suitors for five unmarried daughters. All five daughters have their own unique personalities, but there is one that stands out the most in the novel. The story is concentrated mainly on Elizabeth Bennett, a strong willed and outspoken young lady, and her relationship with Fitzwilliam Darcy (Mr. Darcy), a haughty and extremely wealthy man. Elizabeth is from the middle class and Mr. Darcy comes from a prominent and wealthy family. Elizabeth is conflicted between her prejudices of Mr. Darcy’s behavior and her increasing attraction towards him. It is said that first impressions determine how a relationship will work out. Pride and Prejudice was initially titled First Impressions which is a fitting name because they play a crucial role in the development of the novel. Elizabeth’s first impression of Mr. Darcy is one of contempt and she feels deeply offended by Darcy. At the Netherfield gala, Darcy insults Elizabeth when he exclaims that “she is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt [him]” (Austen 9). At this time, during the Regency Era, a dance was intended for women and men to be together and for women to find potential suitors. The fact that Darcy......

Pride and Prejudice

...In Jane Austen’s lifetime she completed six novels, including Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. Throughout Austen’s writing she draws her readers in with the interesting characters. Austen makes her readers fall in love with the characters. She makes the characters seem as if they dislike or feel awkward towards each other, but in then end fall in love. Austen captures her reader’s attentions with her vivid writing. You can clearly see a mental picture between the characters conversations. Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility portray the main romantic characters sympathetically and vividly, leading the reader to connect with the characters fully. In Pride and Prejudice, the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth appears to be conflicting. In the movie Darcy insults Elizabeth at the first ball by saying, “she is tolerable, not handsome enough to tempt me.”(--) That hurt Elizabeth’s feelings and made her dislike Darcy. At Netherfield, Darcy, Elizabeth, and Caroline are talking about ideal qualities of a wife, and Caroline, with Darcy’s agreement, says, “A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word; and besides all this, she must possess a certain something in her air and manner of walking, the tone of her voice, her address and expressions, or the word will be but half deserved” (------). To a modern reader, this seems like an unreasonable amount of qualities to possess in......

Pride and Prejudice

...Pride and Prejudice Elizabeth Bennet At the beginning of the book when Elizabeth and Darcy meet, they do not like each other very much. They actually dislike each other. This dislike continues through a large portion of the book. Darcy feels his social and financial status puts him above Elizabeth and that is most of the problem. Elizabeth feels that Darcy and those like him are automatically snobbish and so she really didn’t give him much of a chance in the beginning but his arrogant manner didn’t help the situation. Class and marriage plays an important part in Darcy’s arrogant ways. At the time this book was written, love was hardly a reason why people got married. More than likely it was two people of the same social standings marrying to join their estates. If a woman of lower social standings married a man like Darcy, she was marrying up. She was moving up in social and financial settings. Elizabeth drew her conclusions early about Darcy. His sister was also arrogant and looked down on the Bennet sisters. I feel that if Elizabeth took more time to get to know Darcy she would have found out he wasn’t the man she thought he was. Elizabeth’s pride was wounded when she overheard Darcy speaking to Mr. Bingley about her. He said she was tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt him. He also said Mr. Bingley was already dancing with the only handsome woman in the whole place. He also later said that he wasn’t drawn to her because of her low connections....

Pride and Prejudice V Bride and Prejudice

...world in the 18th century, imposed the morals and ethics upon the world as they did their own country, where people were expected to abide by. Jane Austen illustrates the values of this prejudiced society through Pride and Prejudice, which involved the role of women as a major, governing over their marriages for economic sustainability and their lack of authority. Austen's controversial novel was adapted into a feature film which presented the real and gritty society as how it truly was during the time of Regency England; before the adaptation was released, Austen's work was paralleled in 20th century India as the transformation, Bride and Prejudice. These films realise for their audience the significance of Regency England to the forming of modern society's own values, and how it became the foundation of such principles with their own being the role of women. In the late 18th century England, women were demoted to secondary roles in society with respect to property and social responsibilities through the many laws and morals binding women's rights. Rather than being capable of owning property, women were subjected with the role of marrying for economic sustainability. By remaining true to the novel, Pride and Prejudice (film) supported this view throughout the film during the scenes such as immediately after Elizabeth Bennet, the heroine of this romantic comedy, flatly refuses the awkward marriage proposal offered by Mr. Collins, stating fiercely that '[he] could not make......

...Four different marriages in Pride and Prejudice Thesis sentence: Jane Austen, by describing four different marriages in Pride and Prejudice, expressed her viewpoint that one's character often reflects his or her marriage and attitudes towards love. The combination of vulgar Collins and mediocre Charlotte results in a despicable marriage. Collins is a vulgar, pompous and rapacious man who is subservient to his parsoness and always arrogant before his inferiors. His pompous and rapacious character determines that his proposal to Elizabeth is a failure. His vulgar and servile character and his ridiculous concept of love lead to his quick marriage with Charlotte. Charlotte is a vain and mediocre girl. Her mediocre character and perception result in her marriage with Collins. Her vain character brings about her false deion of her married life. The combination of dissolute Wickham and empty-minded Lydia results in a sex-oriented marriage. Wickham is a dissolute and cunning villain who is changeable in his love and crazy about money. 1. He is a thoroughgoing money-pursuer and love imposter, which determines the transfer of his love from poor Elizabeth to wealthy Miss. King. 2. His mean character and contemptible behavior bring about his elopement with Lydia. Lydia is an empty-minded and uncertain flirt who always seeks her own fun and sexual excitement. Her dissipation and foolishness lead to her romantic deeds with officials in Meryton. Her ignorance and dissipation lead to her......

Pride and Prejudice

...Jane Austen's, Pride and Prejudice is a great book that displays a lot of feelings and false impressions. The entire book progresses around a family and their involvement with individuals of a higher status, but for the most part Jane Austen focuses on Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. The title of this book consists of the themes of the novel, but the initial title of the book was to be "First Impressions.” I feel that Elizabeth's prejudice was in her opinion based on first impression, and her pride was developed as determination that her impressions were correct. I see both Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy having great amounts of pride and prejudice, and because of this it was hard for them to become close to each other in the beginning of the novel. From the start when Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy attend the town ball we see that Mr. Darcy feels that Elizabeth is beneath him and thus he shall not dance with her. Mr. Darcy displays a lot of pride in this section of the book and it is possible that he doesn't feel comfortable being around all of the people that were at the ball because he considers them to be in a lower social group. Elizabeth can see that Mr. Darcy is a man with a lot of pride and this is the cause of Elizabeth's prejudice against Mr. Darcy and it is the beginning of her negative attitude that she has toward him for the rest of the book. Elizabeth shows later on in the book that she considers Mr. Wickham to be a great man with good intentions. She had pictured Mr. Wickham...

Pride and Prejudice

...Introduction: Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is concentrated on the relationships of two potential couples: Elizabeth and Darcy and her sister Jane and Darcy’s friend Bingley. The novel tells the story of love of these two couples and the troublesome they have faced on their way to marital bows. They main reason for the obstacles they have faces is the reputation and class belonging. It is the reputation of Elizabeth and Jane that is being questioned throughout the novel as they belong to a aristocratic but a very poor family. As Elizabeth’s behavior in the first place is closely analyzed by the Bingley’s and Darcy’s family member and friends at times she finds herself along with her sister in very vulnerable situations. As the wealth allows these people to judge her and her sister it only owing to Elizabeth’s and Jane’s intelligence and internal beauty that helps them to keep their heads up proudly. The two girls suffer because of the reputation of their mother who is very foolish, noisy and she lacks social grace to make her communication with other people decent and respected by the others. As Darcy’s and Bingley’s families are rather snobbish and think of themselves as of better social representatives than Elizabeth and Jane. The bahaviour of Lydia Bennet almost leaves the girls with no chance of being together with their loved ones as she supports the ill reputation of the family by being with a man without being married to him. Nevertheless all these prejudice......
