El Cadaver de La Novia

En la hora de Lengua, estuvimos trabajando con historias góticas. Vimos distintos vídeos de la película “El cadáver de la Novia” y Carol nos dijo que analizamos uno de ellos y describiremos sus características góticas.

elegí este video porque me parece que es el fragmento en el cual los elementos góticos mas aparecen.

 

Elementos góticos encontrados:

  • Elementos oscuros: El fragmente sucede en un bosque en el cual el clima es oscuro, frío, sombrío y nublado.
  • Miedo, terro, misterio, desconocido y tenebroso: El personaje masculino siente miedo y terror cuando un cadáver de una novia apareció frente a sus ojos mientras este estaba en un bosque descoonocido, tenebroso y misterioso
  • Castillos abandonados: La vida cotidiana de estas personas transcurren en sombrios castillos abandonados
  • Personajes sobrenaturales: El personaje de la novia es bastante gótico ya que esta muerta y una de las características del género gótico son los personajes sobrenaturales.

Post – colonial literature characteristics:

Post colonian literature is the literature people started writing when they were colonized or after they freed themselfs of their colonizers most of them were from Europe. This kind of literature expressed the problems and consequences people had after not being colonized anymore. This included: Many economic and social issues like poverty and lack of education and  the consequences and misfortunes  of colonialism. Colonialism left people thinking that they were savages, that they were less important  than others, they didnt have much identity. Authors wanted to bring their identity back and reconect the population with the land.

Parsi Indians: Parsi = parsee, it means “Persians”

The Parsis are a member of a group of followers in India of the Iranian prophet Zoroaster.

Region: They are descended from Persian Zoroastrians who emigrated to India  (Bombay, Pakistan and Karnataka) to avoid religious persecution by the Muslims.

Religion: Their religion is from India, Perssia

Diaspora:
