For example, in the first few paragraphs, we get a hint of how Connie’s mother is constantly nagging and complaining about how vain she is and how she is nothing like her sister. Speaking from a logical standpoint we can say that this negative backlash from her mother is upsetting to her, as it should be for any normal human being. Since she is receiving such negative attention in her home she goes out to seek “positive” attention. Her mother’s continuous praising of how great Connie’s sister June is, and how much better she is than her can be draining and irritating. Connie could just be going out to get the praise and attention that she needs or “deserves”.
Daisy displays her greed throughout the novel; she marries Tom Buchanan because of his wealth. Gatsby himself realizes Daisy’s obsession with money: “‘She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me’” (Fitzgerald 130). The quote reveals
She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this. She would prefer to just deal with her unhappy marriage by not confronting it because she doesn 't want to deal with the consequences. In reference to Myrtle Wilson’s slaughter, Nick and Gatsby have this exchange, “ ‘ Was Daisy driving’ ‘Yes,’ he said after a moment, ‘but of course I’ll say I was…” (143 Fitzgerald). Gatsby is yet another person who protects Daisy from any consequences she may face. Daisy accidentally runs over Myrtle Wilson, something ironic in and of itself because Myrtle having an affair with Daisy’s husband, in a fit of emotions that she can 't control, and then doesn 't have to deal with any of the repercussions because she is protected from the by the men in her life.
When jealousies arise through the flirtation of Nunkie, a girl who takes a liking to Tea Cake, Janie and Tea Cake fight but talk through and express their feelings over the flirtation to one another until each gives in and they become united once more (188–191). This jealousy is completely unlike Jody’s jealousy of men looking at Janie’s hair in the store; where Jody refuses to open up and explain his feelings to Janie because of his pride, Tea Cake and Janie are able to communicate their emotions to one another and resolve the tension. While her other two marriages were action based and emotional deaths of love, the pride that kills Janie’s third marriage is a physical death. Tea Cake pridefully refuses an offer to take Janie and escape from the Everglades before the hurricane comes upon them. Tea Cake tells ‘Lias, who has offered he and Janie a ride out of the Everglades “Man, de money’s too good on the muck.
This can also explain why Janie ran away with Joe Starks. Janie was enticed with Starks’ words and thought that he could be the one that could give her the love she was searching for. However, she was not happy with being the “mayor’s wife,” that just did what Starks told her to do. Janie did not feel love until, as Hibben’s describes, “Tea Cake came along with his trampish clothes and his easy way and his nice grin,” allowing Janie to fall for him. Even if Tea Cake was younger he made her feel something she never had before,
She uses it to get what she wants which is why she tricks the reader sto think that she’s still in love with him when in reality it’s he’s money, like how she cried into Gatsby’s beautiful shirts (Fitzgerald 92). Also since Tom is always running off with another girl each night, Daisy may feel alone and in need for attention which is why she keeps sending mixed signals to Jay Gatsby in the novel. Since Daisy never admitted to Tom at the hotel about never loving him, this shows Daisy’s true colors, but Gatsby was already too deep to realize the mistakes he was making. So, that is why Daisy never attended Jay’s funeral because her true colors bursted, was afraid to ruin her reputation, and Gatsby gone means no more
Charlie was dared to, “Kiss the prettiest girl in the room on the lips.” Instead of kissing his girlfriend, he kisses Sam. This reaction to the dare made Mary Elizabeth and her friend Sam mad at Charlie. He then realized that that reaction was not the smartest. This made him change because after he knew that what he did was wrong and tried for the rest of the book to apologize to Mary
The way that the narrators compare the death of Addie Bundren’s is they compare the dark shadow as the American dream and how it can kill you just like that. They learn from each other because they talk about the same thing such as money not being able to buy you everything you want. That’s how the narrator 's compare. What Daisy symbolize in The Great Gatsby alought she has it all she’s not happy. The theme she’s supporting is that yes you can have all the money in the world but even if you have it all you can be unhappy.
This brings out the corruption in Gatsby, because he only throws parties and buys fancy clothing to impress Daisy, and, in return, getting Daisy. Daisy, the love of Gatsby, is a woman who lives in East Egg and grew up from a rich family. Daisy is the most corrupt of three characters. This is best exemplified when she makes a promise to wait for Gatsby to come home from war and marry him. While at war, Daisy marries Tom Buchanan, a wealthy man, because money is the only thing that Daisy cares about.
She seems young because she is depending on a careless man. For example, when she said, “And if I do it you will be happy, and things will be like they were.” (255), she is lonely and desperate girl who is still having hope of being happy. She is in a bad mood and depressed too much to even ready to die, it is obvious from her reply, “I don’t care about me” (255) multiple times, waiting for him to say nice words or even make her feel good. He seems as being selfish and careless by starting this relationship and then lacking the support Jig needs from him. Hills Like White Elephant has a huge description on the story’s sitting in the train station, surrounded with hills, fields, and tress in a valley in Spain.
The concept of maltreatment is made to seem common in normal life. This sends out an anti-feminist message to those who read the novel. Even the main character, Janie, doesn’t regularly stand up to the injuries she sustains. Janie lets Tea Cake whip her, because she loves him. This sends the wrong message to women of the time.
Jean, I agree with your response and I aslo think Curley 's wife is very flirtatious around other men because her husband doesn 't give her attention. Curley 's wife can behave carelessly because there 's no other female around, she feels lonely and has no one to talk to. A good example of this situation can be on page 78 when Curley 's wife was talking about her violent husband. Caroline, I agree with your response. Back then there was racial inequality.
