Ompare and contrast the process of performance and storytelling in Twains “Jumping Frogand Chuck Jones One Froggy Evening”.
This is what I have so far:
-narrator telling the story vs pantomime and music.
-human weakness and greed
-exaggerated events/ fable
-ending the story similarly to the way it began
This is the start to my intro. Please adjust if needed:
Two fable tales, Mark Twains The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras Countyand Chuck Jones animated short film One Froggy Evening,evoke similarities in their performance and storytelling: Greed, weakness and gambling are just a few of the themes commonly presented in the narratives. The similarities do not end at the surface, they are deeply rooted in the exaggerated events and anthropomorphism combined with a full circle narrative; a rarely used technique that ends the story in a similar way that it began.
