Another example of Daisy’s carelessness is when Gatsby, a man she says she loved, dies, and she does not attend his funeral or show any signs of grief. In essence, she cares so little about anything that she shows no feelings about the fact a person she loved getting murdered. Her gets perfectly stated by Nick: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made” (Fitzgerald 179). Daisy feels like that because she has so much money and is part of old money, no action can impact her. No matter what bad deed she does, people will fix it for her and she will face no

The novels The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, both contain strong female characters. Hester Prynne and Daisy Buchanan both portray strong female characters in their stories, but they deal with it in different ways. Hester Prynne displays a sense of strength and graciousness when dealing with her scarlet letter, but Daisy Buchanan, when faced with the choice of love or material, chooses the money of her husband Tom. Hester Prynne clearly embodies the strongest female character in any novel read this year. From the first chapter she appears in, when she steps outside a prison with an illegitimate child, while her peers, an intolerable brood of Puritan people look on in disgust judging her for her actions.

Scott Fitzgerald captivates readers with his rich passages and vivid imagery depicting the iconic moments of romantic tragedy in The Great Gatsby. one of Fitzgerald 's more famous works of art, emphasising Gatsby 's life, that reflects parts of his own life.

So, by the next morning when his mother queried him if he wanted anything, all his response was, “I didn’t want nothing” (p.8).
Curley’s wife is not dedicated to Curley as she has the eye for other men (pg 28, p4). Evidently Curley’s wife isn’t loyal to him as she doesn’t bother hiding her interest in other people. Since she has no dedication to him, their partnership is broken.

A feminine Oedipal attitude involves a girl’s romantic feelings for her father figure and her resentment, and ultimate identification, with her mother (Frager and Fadiman, 2013). Melissa’s mother is warm, loving, passive, and submissive. Likewise, Melissa is described by her friends as lively and fun to be around; she is warm and loving, like her mother. The latency period is not relevant to Melissa’s current personality as a psychosexual stage, as it is typically psychologically uneventful (Frager and Fadiman, 2013). The genital stage is similarly unimportant in understanding Melissa.
In her first three marriages, the wife of bath is not vulnerable because she sees her husbands simply as a source of money; when she allows herself to feel a real bond with the next two husbands, consequences follow. She is never interested in having an emotional connection with the first three men, so there is little risk involved with using them for her own benefit. Her fourth husband however is “a reveller- that is to say, he has a paramour; and [the wife of bath] [is] young and full of wantonness” (Chaucer, “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue” 453-454). As she becomes more confident with her manipulation skills, she makes herself susceptible to being taken advantage of by marrying for attraction. Lastly, the control of her final husband makes her admit “that even if he [beats] [her] on every bone, he could soon win [her] love again.” (Chaucer, “The Wife of Bath’s Prologue” 511-512).

Likewise if you have elected to miss competitions explain why you chose to miss them rather than attend? The terms of the visitation as laid out by the mother were not visitation in a meaningful sense. Again I was to be a spectator with no meaningful contact with my daughter during these periods. I was not to be allowed unescorted contact with Jamie. Her mother or friends were always to be present.
