About this Item

28 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.3in. x 0.3in.Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 1, 3, Dresden Technical University (Institut fr Anglistik Amerikanistik), course: Science Fiction Films, language: English, abstract: When I was young, I met this beautiful girl by a lake. The following paper focuses on how the afterlife is allegorized in Vincent Wards film. Ward combines motifs from various religions. Ancient, Western and Eastern versions of afterlife merge to an individualistic Great Beyond. The leading literary influence seems to come from Dantes The Divine Comedy, especially considering the movies depiction of Hell. Also several parallels to art work stand out. Of course, as no sources can prove it, it is just speculation if, especially the referred literature and paintings were an inspiration for the film. However, some parallels cannot be dismissed out of hand. For a clearer arrangement, I assembled the research paper in a Heaven (Chapter 2. 1. ) and a Hell (Chapter 2. 2. ) section and will then summarize my observations as well as explicate how this all fits into the science fiction genre (Chapter 3). Unfortunately, apart from various reviews on the internet, no other secondary text on What Dreams May Come can be found in literature. On that account, my paper mainly bases on the film itself and several reference books on theology, philosophy and mythology. Namely, The Oxford Companion to Philosophy and Boxtons The Complete World of Greek Mythology as reference books as well as work on afterlife: Cowards Das Leben nach dem Tod in den Weltreligionen and Brauns Das Jenseits - Die Vorstellungen der Menschheit ber das Leben nach dem Tod.

About this title

Synopsis:

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 1,3, Dresden Technical University (Institut für Anglistik/ Amerikanistik), course: Science Fiction Films, language: English, abstract: "When I was young, I met this beautiful girl by a lake." The following paper focuses on how the afterlife is allegorized in Vincent Ward's film. Ward combines motifs from various religions. Ancient, Western and Eastern versions of afterlife merge to an individualistic Great Beyond. The leading literary influence seems to come from Dante's The Divine Comedy, especially considering the movie's depiction of Hell. Also several parallels to art work stand out. Of course, as no sources can prove it, it is just speculation if, especially the referred literature and paintings were an inspiration for the film. However, some parallels cannot be dismissed out of hand. For a clearer arrangement, I assembled the research paper in a Heaven (Chapter 2.1.) and a Hell (Chapter 2.2.) section and will then summarize my observations as well as explicate how this all fits into the science fiction genre (Chapter 3). Unfortunately, apart from various reviews on the internet, no other secondary text on What Dreams May Come can be found in literature. On that account, my paper mainly bases on the film itself and several reference books on theology, philosophy and mythology. Namely, The Oxford Companion to Philosophy and Boxton's The Complete World of Greek Mythology as reference books as well as work on afterlife: Coward's Das Leben nach dem Tod in den Weltreligionen and Braun's Das Jenseits - Die Vorstellungen der Menschheit über das Leben nach dem Tod.
