Description:

This paper compares and contrasts Edward Albee's 1959 play "The Zoo Story" and the 1998 film "Pleasantville", written and directed by Gary Ross. The paper further states that although they were created in different forms, one as a stage play and the other as a film, both began life as different forms of the written word, and both deal with conformity versus change, propriety versus transformation as embodied in their respective characters who intrude on another's world and incite metamorphosis.

From the Paper:

"There is a huge difference between Edward Albee's 1959 play The Zoo Story and the 1998 film Pleasantville, written and directed by Gary Ross. You would think that there wouldn't be any common ground between these two very different works of art. Though it is fairly obvious that they were created in different forms, one as a stage play and the other as a film, both began life as different forms of the written word, and both manage to handle and deal with various angles of human life and behavior, but they do it in two very different periods: one in the 1950s, the other in the late 1990s."
