Lesson 5: Juxtaposition

According to Dictionary.com, 'juxtaposition' means an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast. And the state of being close together or side by side. (http://dictionary.reference.com/)

Nowadays, we can see more and more movies using juxtaposition to present the story. The brave hero is not always a strong and handsome man with amour. The beatiful lady not always sitting there silly and wait for the hero rescue.

As we know that the protagonist in this movie is a hobbit/halfling, small people with the half size of the normal people. They are carefree people who no need to worry about what happening in the world. They work, eat, sleep, and sing. But Frodo for the shire was given a task that no man in the earth can accomplish. In the movie we can see how strong and determind this character is. Arwen as the heroin in this movie is a beautiful elf who lives in rivendale. She shows her bravery when saving Frodo from the 9 Nazgul on the way to rivendale.
