Scott Fitzgerald uses a variety of imagery during the course of the novel . An example of imagery he used is “men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars…”(Fitzgerald pg.39) “People were not invited-they went there... “Sometimes they came without having met Gatsby at all.”(Fitzgerald pg.41) “Englishmen dotted about;all well dressed all looking a little hungry.” (Fitzgerald pg.42)Gatsby had grand parties that were glamourous. People came from all over to get drunk and party. Nobody knew who Gatsby was nor did they get invited they just came because they wanted to get drunk they didn’t care that it was illegal or about the host. They didn't even care about going to the party uninvited it didn’t hurt their self-respect simply because they were careless people.

They would both constantly cheat on each other and have relationships with other partners, however they did not get a divorce due to their own selfish reasons. In The Great Gatsby there was a huge absence of intimacy and admiration in the marriages, and no one was trying to secure their union to each other either because they were in the relationship for their spouse’s money, or cheated because they felt lavish and could get away with it. F. Scott Fitzgerald wants the reader to know that pretending that everything is okay just leads to false illusions of a perfect reality in the eyes of one person or another. The fact that everyone knows that Tom has a mistress and that Daisy looks the other way makes her look clueless and foolish. “The fact that he had one [a mistress] was insisted upon wherever he was known.
During the whole novel Gatsby tries to reconnect with his one true love a woman from his previous life named Daisy. But Daisy the women he wishes to reconnect with is married to a man that is wealthy his name was Tom Buchanan. Both of them love Daisy a lot and will not let her go. The outcome of them not letting her go led them to awful decisions to win over Daisy. However they show different characteristics to accomplish there goal of getting Daisy.
Gil could also be a parallel to Gatsby because they both find love where it could never happen. Gatsby with the married Daisy who also has a child that he does not acknowledge, and Gil with adriana who is from a whole different time period than he is from. The second group of characters are the rich, like Inez and her parents as they parallel the Buchanans because they all are rich and care little about others but themselves. For example Inez says to Gil when he confronts her about cheating that “its whatever get over it”. She doesn't care about Gil or his feelings and she brushes the conversation off like it is nothing.
The Banquet of Trimalchio from Petronius’s famous book “Satyricon”, is a very important event that takes place in the story even though it is considered not to have any real connection with the overall plot. A very wealthy freedman named Trimalchio hosts a dinner party for many guests, where he shows off his luxury items and foods. During the banquet, it is clear to see that Trimalchio is not interested with his quests or knows them very well, he only had the banquet to show off his wealth. We also learn that Trimalchio is obsessed with death and gods, and has very little education and culture to offer. After reading ‘The Banquet of Trimalchio from the Satyricon”, it is clear to see that Trimalchio uses different methods to distinguish himself from others by constantly commanding his slaves to do something, whether it be to bring him something or clean up a mess.
It was brilliant technique for Ace to be using as his cover for his detective work and real purpose at the party. Nobody would have guessed that he was there being snoopy and looking for the stolen mascot -- simply because they're so amused and shocked at his crazy, outlandish facial expressions, body movements and grotesque eating that even his words and conversation were almost lost in his non-verbal communication. It was all so distracting that it becomes a perfect masquerade for the real reason that he's at the mansion. Those attending didn’t want to violate their expected behavior to stop him… and so he continued. Their compliance to expected behavior enabled him to proceed with his plan.
His interactions and conversations depict how different he is from the rest of the wealthy crowd, as he stands out among them due to their difference in morals. At Gatsby’s party, it seemed as though Nick was the only person with the decency to greet the host, “This is an unusual party for me. I haven’t even seen the host.” (47). Nobody knew where Gatsby was when Nick asked around, which shows that he was not as materialistic as the rest of the guests. Emphasizing their different values, Nick’s discomfort with meeting Myrtle for the first time showed through in an attempt to distance himself, ‘“Hold on,” I said, “I have to leave you here.” “No you don’t,” interposed Tom quickly.
As Gogol is more familiar with American culture, he feels his parents’ way of inviting people to dinner is vaguely foolish, and that leads to the fact that he prefers to spend more time with Maxine’s family rather than his own. The gap also widens in the relationship aspect. When they are curling up on the sofa in the evenings, Gogol is reminded that, “in all his life he has never witnessed a single moment of physical affection between his parents. Whatever love exists between them is an utterly private, uncelebrated thing.”(p138) He loves every companion and that is why he chooses to be with thim. On the other hand, his parents choose to be with each other and then they started to love each other.
In Hold Up, Beyoncé somehow found a way to continue to love her husband, even with all of the grief he has put her through. Amy Winehouse’s, You Know I’m No Good, she clearly states that she is the toxic one in the relationship and that even though she is an adulterer, she still longs for her partner. And lastly, Shakespeare’s sonnet 152, he expresses that he wants to continue an affair with a married woman, because he is egotistical and greedy. Not everyone walking this earth has pure intentions at heart, when it comes to things like love and these songs and sonnets prove that. Love is not always effervescent and alluring, it can be gloomy and full of malicious
