Multiple films have been created to reenact this great piece of literature. Due to the text-persistent details throughout Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 film starring Leonardo Decaprio F. Scott Fitzgerald would prefer this movie over the 1974 version directed by Jack Clayton starring Robert Redford. Fitzgerald was very particular with the symbols and details that he included in his novel. The 2013 film version was quite similar to the novel in scene containing the Wolfsheim meeting. Nick knew very little of his wealthy neighbor Jay Gatsby at this point in the plot.
Pursuing this further, Gatsby shows off his wealth to Daisy again by flaunting his expensive clothing. At this point in the story, Gatsby shows off his money in any way that he can. Daisy states to Gatsby, " 'It makes me sad because I 've never seen such – such beautiful shirts before '" (92; Ch 5). Gatsby 's shirts are part of his lifestyle, they were made to impress others. Daisy 's world is made up of wealth and flashy materials, and when she realizes that Gatsby is now connected to money, she breaks down.
Aristotelian Argument: Representation of the Great Gatsby The two movies, The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann and Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen had quite similarities in the character’s to the novel. Both films created a significant portrayal of The Great Gatsby. The films had a similar theme as in the novel towards reliving in the past. Characters, like Nick and Gil, were selfish and didn 't want anything but to succeed in what they wanted. The real names and personalities of the characters were brought out in The Great Gatsby film, whereas Midnight in Paris used different characters to bring the novel to life.
This is evident when the author changes how the reader perceives beauty and ugliness in ‘How to Tell a True War Story’, as he tells Curt Lemon’s and the buffalo’s horrid and gruesome deaths as romance stories. This is especially evident when the men are picking off flowers from parts of Lemon’s dead body (O’Brien, P53). Moreover, it must be questioned why O’Brien did not write what truly happened during the Vietnam War. In his interview with Lynn Wharton, the author reveals he wanted to metamorphose his personal experiences into fictional form. He begins to write from his own experiences, but as he writes, it transforms into something new and different.
Your gonna lose your hearing by fifty.” This is the stereotypical views of older generations opinions on today's music but many aren't like that at all. Take F. Scott Fitzgerald for an example, he became staid but still youthful in his drinking habits and style. This youthful tone he expressed through dancing, smoking and drinking also had shown through in his piece The Great Gatsby. That is why F. Scott Fitzgerald would recommend the movie’s present version of his writing as the best expression of his views on the tone of the story. Also why would they even produce a second take on the movie if the old one wasn't outdated or horrid?
My personal response towards the novel of The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, is I think the part that makes the story so insightful is the flatness of the characters in “Gatsby”. The novel tell us that if we were live out of our fantasy lives, we would become more expansive and creative where we will be unfettered as well as alive and truly be ourselves. However, the fantasy in The Great Gatsby is not work that way because every character in the novel want to give them up to something that they wished to in their fantasy. So everyone is a fantasist as therefore an actor as well as a “beautiful little fool.” In this novel we can see Gatsby’s romantic fantasy, the fantasy of Daisy, and the fantasy of Myrtle. Gatsby’s romantic fantasy has exerts the most force in the novel because there are a few larges ideas as well as a few common dream to which everybody attracted.
Does wealth or love provide the happiness more individuals aim to receive within their lives? Jay Gatsby had a direct relation to this question throughout his life, especially after meeting someone he would begin to fall for and never stop. He was a wealthy man who lived in a lavish house, and appeared to possess most things that would make a normal man happy. However, he was missing something that could be even more important, love. The only thing that wealth and greed appeared to result in was corruption, and could be associated with the events that followed Gatsby’s infatuation.
In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the author uses the results of moral development to show a happy ending. Gatsby, though he doesn’t succeed in reaching his life goal, is able to escape his obsessive habits over Daisy. Nick, though he makes a small change in his dating habits, still runs away from his problems and relies on others to aid him in social situations. Therefore, although Gatsby dies by the end of the novel, he has a happier ending because he breaks his destructive cycle of obsession over Daisy, while Nick talks more about change than actually changing, thus resulting in a more sad ending without moral growth. In the beginning of the novel until Daisy rejects him, Gatsby centers his life around Daisy due to his obsession.
The most pleasing feeling he had felt for the first time in five years led him into the worst case scenario, his own death. Each situation has its own representation, adding more depth to the story, allowing readers to dig deeper into their minds. F. Scott Fitzgerald depicts the theme of wealth breathes carelessness using the literary devices and techniques of symbolism, diction, and imagery to create meaning in his classic work. Whether it’s an object, person, idea, or even color, each event in The Great Gatsby has a symbol to represent it. Symbols indicate important ideas, objects, characters, and more.
Although he is widely regarded as one of the finest directors working today, you can either love him for his originality and distinctive style, or hate him for his artificiality. However, The Grand Budapest Hotel is his most complete work to date, it includes everything we are used to seeing from him and more, to the point that I would dare to say that if you don’t love it, you will at least enjoy the ride. His ability to shape live-action dramas as stylistic as cartoons really make the cut here, nobody can tell a comedy about a tragedy as elegantly as him. When asked about his influence on cinema in an interview with Time (2014) he replied, “I’m sort of quoting Stanley Kubrick, but when I do a movie, all I want to do is make an experience that can be as strong a version of whatever it is as it can be.” Without a doubt, Wes Anderson is a contemporary auteur, and The Grand Budapest Hotel: flawlessly written and beautifully directed is a definite must-see for every film lover out there, or everyone who is just looking to have some
