Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English - Miscellaneous, grade: 1 (A), , course: Englisch-Leistungskurs (LK), language: English, abstract: My interest in the question if Holly Golightly is an icon for modern women and why comes from my enthusiasm for the film 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', which I like especially because of the main character Holly and my passion for New York City. Having already seen the film, I remarked several differences while reading the book and since then I wanted to discover their significances; so when I had to choose a topic for my research paper, the comparison of the Holly in the novella and the Audrey-Hepburn-version of her was one of the topics that I gave most preference to. In order to do that, I will first look at the author's life and summarize the storylines of novel and film adaptation so that one can find the content-related differences early in the examination. The second part will contain a characterization of Holly in the novel, followed by a comparison to the Holly in the film. The third part of this paper will explain the differences and conclusively try to find the influences that Holly Golightly has on modern women.
