Blog Assessment: "The Ninny" and "The Governess"

"The Ninny" by Anton Chekhov and "The Governess" by Neil Simon possess many differences and similarities. Differences include the methods of writing both authors used. For example, Neil Simon wrote his story in the form of a play and used a diction of vocabulary associated with modern writing while Anton Chekhov summarized "The Governess" through the process of paraphrase and used different methods of speech and illustrations to make readers feel as if they were in the 19th century. Similarities between the two versions of the story would include the methods of characterization the authors used to describe the characters. For example, the employer(regardless of their gender) in both stories was first portrayed as being deceitful because they fabricated reasons to why the governess, or ninny, should not be paid her full salary. The governess, in the beginning, aroused minor discrepancies, but then accepted the employer's offer and did not protest to the injustice depicted in the employer. Through my interpretations, the employee in both stories is represented as being meek, deferential, and agreeable because of her patience and willingness to accept the minimum amount given.

Both stories are slightly identical because both educate us in the art of obtaining and protested for what is rightfully ours. However, both stories provided me with different feelings because both contributed to different levels of amusement and entertainment. I, personally, enjoyed Neil Simon's version of the story because it was humorous and possessed much more dialogue and detail than Anton Chekhov's version of story, "The Ninny". I propose several methods of transactions to what is just. Respectfully, one could verbally discuss the situation in a positive manner or engage in a friendly debate. One could also refer to legal affairs, though it is recommended that you avoid it unless it is absolutely necessary and if it poses as your only option.
