The sound of the music and the scene is still quite fast and dramatic when a close up of an old man with a long white beard is shown beside a rock, his facial expression looks either sad and regretful or evil; the old man is shown in a rather luminous atmosphere. The clip is then followed by another scene, which consists of two or three dragons flying fiercely down towards a big castle; everything is still happening quite fast and the narrator says "the end has come" whilst a man is heading to climb a set of rocky stairs out in a open space.

Especially by you Liwl, they are especially suspicious of the God of Assains and Thiefs. " For a moment he gazed upwards towards the top of the stairs, almost caustiosly. Then it passed, an air of confidence and power grew about him, and he grew in size as he, with a great sweep of his cloak, transcended the great staircase in one leap. He was closely followed by Liwl, who had climbed the stairs quietly, quickly, making sure to stay in the shadows.

The film 'Shrek' begins as if we are reading a book or a fairytale. The character Shrek is reading the fairytale story and roughly halfway through he exclaims "Yeah right!" and rips the page out of the book and consequently uses it as toilet paper! We are astonished as the viewers as we were expecting a conventional fairytale. There is a good use of toilet humour and it is aimed at children or teenagers. We know right from the start that Shrek is a nice character as he has a comical impact on the film.

How do the makers of Shrek use presentational devices to reverse the tradition, to reveal the ogre as good and the prince as evil?
Many brave knights tried to free her from this dreadful prison, but none prevailed. So she sat in her tower and waited for true love, and true love's first kiss.' and the soft slow music in the background. Shrek then rips that page and wipes his bottom saying, 'like that's ever going to happen', with a Scottish accent. He then bangs the toilet door and then you notice a change in music and atmosphere. There is a sought of rock and roll music which suggest to the viewers that Shrek is not going to be a movie that they had expected it to be like.

The seduction is split into two parts and the young girl's emotions and feelings change drastically from the first part to the second. In the beginning of the poem the girl is put across as quite na�ve and blatantly childish, Immature and heavily reliant upon teen magazines for her information "reminded her of numerous stories from teenage magazines." As the poem goes on we begin to see that maybe this girl cannot separate real life from the fantasy she reads in these magazines.

In this essay, I will be comparing the poems 'Cousin Kate' by Christina Rossetti and 'The Seduction' by Eileen McAuley and also asking the question, "How do the two main female protagonists of the poem feel betrayed?"
On the other hand both poems have distinct rhyme schemes. In 'Cousin Kate' and in 'The Seduction' the alternate line ending rhyme. The most obvious difference is the gap in eras. 'Cousin Kate' is a pre-twentieth century poem whilst 'The Seduction' is a more modern piece; these differences in time are obvious as a result of the actions and descriptions of the characters. No woman from the 1800's would have attended parties without a chaperone nor would they have drunk vodka and worn "high white shoes."

The themes of the two poems are also very similar. They both talk about pregnancy and relationships. In both poems the women become attracted to men, become pregnant and are then left. In 'Cousin Kate' the maid is more worried about being left by the lord, as although her son is illegitimate she is proud of him. In 'The Seduction', the girl is more worried about becoming pregnant. This is because the girl isn't even 16 when she falls pregnant and feels she has missed out on her life. In both poems the male is in charge of the relationships.
