I'm struggling, folks.
After reading the posts of others here, I am relieved that I am not the only one who has struggled with sharing their statement on social media. After reading Robbie's and Analee's posts in particular, I was inspired to at least try it out on here. Maybe I just need to fine-tune my ideas and make them less broad? I don't know.
Here, let me explain:
The paper I wrote earlier this semester was about the visual content in Lewis Carroll's works, and how it was an important aspect in his books. Important enough even to challenge the written word in value. I loved writing about that.
Now I'm working on research for The Princess Bride, which has little visual material to study. There's a map in the front, and the chapter headings are decorated, but I don't think that's enough to relate back to John Tenniel's masterpieces in the Alice works.
I've been playing with the idea of relating the visual importance of the illustrations in Carroll's works to the visual importance that perhaps the movie "The Princess Bride" has on reading the novel. Note - the author of the novel also wrote the screenplay of the movie.
I am drawn to this idea, and yet I feel like I am treading thin ice. I do not want to end up with a paper that belongs to a film criticism class. Does that make sense?
What do you all think? I don't want to seem like I'm begging here, but I could really use some help with this.
Ok, so maybe I'm begging.
I have no shame.
