Social Critique in Fight Club 1
Social Critique in Fight Club 2While Fight Club 1 and Fight Club 2 are both written by the same author, Fight Club 1 is a novel, whereas Fight Club 2 is a graphic novel. Fight Club 2 is essentially a continuation of Fight Club 1, the way they portray the story is starkly different. In Fight Club 1, like with any novel, the reader is left to their own imagination to create what they believe the story looks like. However in Fight Club 2 there are illustrations that are already created so the reader does not have to imagine the characters, situations, or interactions that are taking place. In class, we were assigned the task of examining the level of social critique that we thought was in each page. Both works are excellent pieces of literature, but with the graphic novel it was much easier to determine a certain level of social critique.
On the contrary, with the novel that is Fight Club 1, determining the level of social critique took much longer because there were no visuals to aid in conveying what the words were attempting to say. In the attached graphs, are the level of social critique in the pages of Fight Club 1 and Fight Club 2. In the graph that shows the level of social critique in Fight Club 1 the levels are overall more generalized and do not have much difference, this is due to the arbitrary nature of finding and determining social critique without the help of visual aids. While in the graph that shows the level of social critique in Fight Club 2, the points on the graph are much more spread out, this is because of the definitive level of social critique provided by the illustrations that are provided in the pages of Fight Club 2. In the end, the graphic novel of Fight Club 2 was a better medium for transmitting the level of social critique.
