The band is on its way. Pablo seems worried about two things: the
horses needed for the retreat and the fact that the men he\'s recruited
think he is in charge. Jordan humors him on both counts.

This chapter is another installment in the story of Andres as he
is hampered by his own people. You will remember he had made swift
progress through enemy territory. It\'s his own people who still
continue to slow him down.
Again, if one of Hemingway\'s goals in For Whom the Bell ... mehr
The operation begins in the dark of early morning. The band has
arrived at the bridge and is about to break up into various details.
As they shake hands in parting, Pablo\'s hand feels strangely good to
Jordan, as though he were a real comrade.
With Pilar, Jordan trades some genial insults. ... mehr
This second-to-last chapter drives home the incompetence and
futility that have characterized the cause for which Robert Jordan
is risking his life and his newly discovered future with Maria.
The Republican offensive is moving through the night in one
direction as Gomez carries Andres on his motorcycle in the o ... mehr
The final, lengthy chapter of For Whom the Bell Tolls is devoted
almost exclusively to action. Hemingway has completed his
philosophizing. He now leaves it to you to gather the thematic threads
and weave them into the story\'s final scenes as you learn the fate
of the bridge, of the guerrilla band, and of Robert Jordan. ... mehr

\"Hello - My name is Forrest, Forrest Gump!\"
Everyone who knows the movie Forrest Gump remembers this first sentence, the beginning of Forrest's story.
This sentence is an introduction as well as the foundation for a story that describes Forrest's life in a very

very strange way through a decisive period of America' ... mehr
Eric Roth, listed in the movie credits as screenplay writer (who was awarded the Oscar for \"best adapted
screenplay\" for Forrest Gump), rewrote quite a few of the novel's qualities for dramatic and cinematic
He offers a very different view on the life of the main character compared to the original novel plot of Winston

3.1 The life as a child
Winston Groom does not give many information about Forrest's childhood. He is characterised as shy,
reserved and quiet, and looking back on his years in \"nut-school\" he is completely aware of his mental
disability. Forrest shortly describes his first relation to Jenny and the physical changes of his body caused by
The movie however gives a wider, longer and slightly different view on young Forrest ... mehr
During the discussion of the adaptation of Forrest Gump's life I have only mentioned the events that have
actually been taken over into the movie. However, the novel contains many other elements that the film does
not show. A certain part of those things had to be left out because the screenplay would have been far too
long for the cinema audience. Some of the elements do not contribute much to the action of the novel (nor
would they have t ... mehr
5.1 Mama Gump
It is amazing to see that in the novel a relation between Forrest and his mother is almost not present. He refers
to her only a few times and he basically lets the reader know that he does not care much about his mother. A
characterisation of Mama Gump can therefore not be made.
It is even more fascinating to see a loving son and a loving mother in the movie. From the beginning of the
film to her death Forrest's mother ... mehr
Obviously the plot is not the only thing the producers of the movie had to change - in fact, some of the new
ideas originate in the change of the outward appearance of Forrest Gump himself.
The reader of the novel has the image of a six foot six giant weighing \"two hundrit forty-two pounds\" (comp.
p. 10, l. 12), whereas Tom Hanks portrays a completely different stature of Forrest Gump. Therefore it was
necessary to refit some details of ... mehr
Forrest Gump confronts the audience with the past 30 years of their history. To get the reader efficiently
involved into that time Winston Groom used a simple and yet brilliant method: He had his title character
participate in striking historical events that almost everyone of the readers automatically assigns to that era.
Forrest does not only fight in the Vietnam War and go to outer space, he also directly interacts with
presidents of the ... mehr
While analysing the changes the writer of the screenplay and the creators of the movie made for the
adaptation of the novel, it becomes obvious that they were in quite a dilemma. On the one hand they certainly
wanted their film to be as authentic to the novel as possible, but on the other hand everyone wanted the
movie to be successful at the same time.
It was therefore not easy to engineer the screenplay to meet both of these criteria, an ... mehr
