Instead of a cheerful, happy tone, he sang it to be sad and depressing. Then, Robbie sings “Love Stinks” by The J. Geils Band, and points out people in the crowd who feel as if the world is also against them. After Robbie’s performance, he is known as “mentally insane” and having “a nervous breakdown,” according to his sisters husband. Robbie’s new name as the “crazed” person in town proves that Robbie is only human, is not flawless, and makes mistakes that give him a bad reputation. Comic heroes are not perfect, they are very real, relatable and do not ask for much.
Maybe the faith of Gatsby is the microcosm to that of everyone, and love is a fantasy. Nevertheless, albeit reality pricks our lives, we will never give up the utopian world in our heart. F.

As the attendant, he is the neighbor of Gatsby, the distant cousin of Daisy, and the old acquaintance of Tom; he associates with Jordan, attends luxury party of Gatsby, and helps Gatsby and Daisy contact again; he witnesses the rivals between Gatsby and Tom, knows about the truth of traffic accident of Myrtle, and handles Gatsby’s affairs in the end.
“The character of Judge Thatcher in general is used as a vehicle for exposing the faults of the townspeople, as there is a lengthy passage describing several parties building a desirable façade for themselves in order to “show off” to the town celebrity who is apparently “showing off too” (Twain, 18). Everyone is attempting to make an impression in order to stand out, which puts them all on the same level in spite of their concentrated effort to avoid that exact conclusion. Twain uses this to solidify to the readers that even though these people have an authority over Tom, it does not necessarily mean they have a greater level of understanding than him. This is made explicitly clear when Tom takes a corporal punishment in the place of another student (and the judge’s daughter); to the readers this is unquestionably a heroic act, while to the authority figure, Tom has been merely a troublemaker getting his just deserts. It is because of incidents like this that the nature of Tom’s
“... And this is how we loved: a fifth of vodka and an afternoon in the attic…” This just represents how Ocean Vuong’s relationships are toxic. When you think of alcohol it usually is to drink to forget, forget about your problems, stressors, and life in general. In the poem they drink together to forget their problems in the relationship, which is obviously not healthy. This is a direct result of how memories can be a good and bad thing. Vuong’s father hit his mother then got sent to jail, which resulted in a later divorce.

To his own misfortune, Jay Gatsby is the most abhorrent character in the novel, due to the immoral ways in which he tries to capture Daisy’s affection. One loathsome way that Jay Gatsby attempts to appeal to people of high social ranking, like Daisy, is by recreating his past. In the renowned novel, Gatsby took Nick Carraway out for a drive in his car one morning. They began to converse which led to Gatsby telling Nick his life story. He told Nick not to believe any rumors about him floating around his parties, probably so that Nick would only believe the lies told to him directly by Gatsby.

In The Tell Tale Heart, the character buries another person under his floorboards because he didn 't’ like the ways his eye looked, which makes us pretty sure he had some type of mental illness and was mad like Poe at the end of his life. For example, in The Tell Tale Heart, it says, “Now this is the point you fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. [...] You should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution with what foresight with what dissimulation I went to work.” (Poe) This quote shows that the character didn’t know if he was mad or not. Also in The Tell Tale Heart it says, “I heard all the things in heaven and in the earth.
Daisy cries because the man who once looked at her like she was a person and indispensable is now trying to buy her, objectifying her once more in a way she never expected him to. Daisy loves the beauty of the shirts but hates what they mean for her. She has exhausted her ability to rebel against a world that expects her to be demeaned in this way, and cannot articulate her feelings. She justifies her tears with the values of materialism that have been forced upon her, seeing how she is treated as an object herself. The objectification of Daisy is complete when Gatsby tells Nick, “Her voice is full of money,” (127) towards the end of the novel.
