A Rhetorical Analysis Of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

by Nai-Jen Chi, A Rhetorical Analysis Of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Rhetorical Analysis Of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon books, This thesis employs Kenneth Burke's cluster analysis to examine Ang Lee's martial arts film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (USA, 2000). This Mandarin film achieved extraordinary success in the United States, where it was the first foreign-language film to be nominated in ten categories and the first Asian film to be nominated for best picture at the Academy Awards. The goal of this study is to find out how the values can be communicated, through one visual artifact and two different narratives -- the Mandarin dialogue and the English subtitles. The analysis finds that the disconnection of Taoism between the Mandarin dialogue and the English subtitles results in the interpretation of the movie from a philosophical to a romantic perspective. The study also uncovers that there are similarities in the idea of moderation in the Mandarin dialogue and the English subtitles, which shows that the persuasiveness of narratives, regardless of the language differences and the structures employed, is subject to values.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

by Janice Dreese, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon books, In 18th century Qing dynasty China, Li Mu Bai is an accomplished Wudang swordsman and Yu Shu Lien heads a private security company. Yu Shu Lien and Li Mu Bai have feelings for each other, but because Shu Lien had been engaged to Mu Bai's close friend, Meng Sizhao,[8] before his death, Shu Lien and Mu Bai feel bound by loyalty to Meng Sizhao and have not acted on their feelings for one another. Mu Bai, choosing to retire, asks Shu Lien to give his sword "Green Destiny" to their benefactor Sir Te in Beijing. Long ago, Mu Bai's teacher was killed by Jade Fox, a woman who sought to learn Wudang skills. While at Sir Te's place, Shu Lien makes the acquaintance of Jen Yu, who is the daughter of rich and powerful Governor Yu and is about to get married. One evening, a masked thief sneaks into Sir Te's estate and steals the Green Destiny. Sir Te's servant Master Bo and Shu Lien trace the theft to Governor Yu's compound, where Jade Fox had been posing as Jen's governess for many years. Soon after, Mu Bai arrives in Beijing and discusses the theft with Shu Lien. Master Bo makes the acquaintance of Inspector Tsai, a police investigator from the provinces, and his daughter May, who have come to Beijing in pursuit of Fox. Fox challenges the pair and Master Bo to a showdown that night. Following a protracted battle, the group is on the verge of defeat when Mu Bai arrives and outmaneuvers Fox. Before Mu Bai can kill Fox, the masked thief reappears and helps Fox. Fox kills Tsai before fleeing with the thief (who is revealed to be Jen). After seeing Jen fight Mu Bai, Fox realizes Jen had been secretly studying the Wudang manual and had surpassed her in combat skills.
