Specialised paper5.437 Words / ~15 pages BG/BRG Purkersdorf JIM JARMUSCH SPEZIALGEBIET ENGLISCH Table of Contents Style and Characters. 3 Themes. 6 Influence, Impact & Legacy. 8 “Down by Law”. 10 “The Limits of Control”. 12 Style and Characters From his first film on Jim Jarmusch has formed a highly idiosyncratic and unique trademark style of movie making, which should be intensified by his second film “Strang­er than Paradise”, setting the tone for his work to come. Namely his use of prolonged uninterrupted takes, long tracking shots featuring extended silent scenes, and very little camera movement punctuated by an occasional fade to black, creates a brooding and contemplative atmosphere accompanied by a rather slow and meandering pace. Furthermore forming his idiosyncratic style, there is his specific attitude of narrative, coming across as defiantly non-dramatic…[show more]

Specialised paper5.934 Words / ~20 pages Gymnasium Coesfeld After all, the history of royal marriages to commoners is not a pretty sight. The first time an English sovereign married a commoner, he almost lost his crown. When Edward IV revealed that he had secretly married Elizabeth Woodville, reputedly the ‘most beautiful woman in the island of Britain’, in 1464, his friend Warwick the Kingmaker was so enraged that he began planning a coup. And even though Edward defeated and killed Warwick at the battle of Barnet, the Woodville family remained a source of deep jealousy to snobbish royal hangers-on — a taste, perhaps, of what may be in for Michael and Carole Middleton. Happily, no one can doubt that when King William V finally succeeds to the throne, in Kate Middleton he will have the woman he loves at his side. But aside from being the product of a genuine romance, theirs is an engagement that…[show more]
Specialised paper5.070 Words / ~18 pages Gymnasium Jüchen Furthermore the thesis about South Park that I stated in the beginning, which said that you cannot cover the function of language without considering the other humoristic aspects of the series, can be confirmed as the use of vulgarity would not be intelligibly without knowing about the other aspects being conducive to the humour. It would be really interesting to deal with these aspects in the scope of other studies – especially the analysis of the stereotypes and prejudices as presented in South Park would be worth to write about as the whole program is mainly grounded on these. 5.
