They are also alike because they both lose a girl because they are not rich enough at the time. In the Great Gatsby, Gatsby says, “ ‘she only married you because I was poor,” (Fitzgerald p130). This is the exact same reason why Zelda refuses to marry Scott. Scott and Gatsby are extremely alike because some things in his life is portrayed through the character,

Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
“He could not see that she was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world” (ch. 19). At Grand Isle she feels emotional change, it’s the beginning of her awakening. Upon returning to New Orleans she acts upon those thriving sentiments, so she decided to abandon her Tuesdays at home, and eventually she leaves the house on Esplanade Street and moves into the pigeon-house. A transition from a dutiful housewife to a free spirit was not a peaceful one.
As previously mentioned, self was defined as a person that had the power to think for themselves, despite what other people say. Myrtle is a 30 year old woman married to George Wilson, a poor mechanic who reside in the Valley of Ashes. She is not proud of this and so, plans to seduce old money Tom Buchanan through her appearance, personality, and behavior. Because of this, Myrtle proves to fit the definition of self. To begin with, Myrtle is ashamed of her class and pretends to be rich and high class in order to impress Tom.
In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald portrays the themes of love, lust and obsession, through the character of Jay Gatsby, who confuses lust and obsession with love. The character of Jay Gatsby was a wealthy business man, who the author developed as arrogant and tasteless. Gatsby 's love interest, Daisy Buchanan, was a subdued socialite who was married to the dim witted Tom Buchanan. She is the perfect example of how women of her level of society were supposed to act in her day. The circumstances surrounding Gatsby and Daisy 's relationship kept them eternally apart.
It created a lot of controversies and was heavily criticised as it questioned the traditional roles of men and women among Europeans who believed that the covenant of marriage was holy. Most critics around the world believe the play led to increase awareness on the need for women’s rights in all continents, on the other hand some critics opine that the play depicted women as inferior creatures and dolls who have no personality of their own. Nora Helmer the main character strives to achieve the perfect concepts of life set by the society and her husband. Nora is trapped in her home where her Torvald has built a wonderful life for his ‘doll wife’. Nora’s transformation comes when she discovers the role in doll house imposed on her by the society and her husband and she is desperate to free herself in order to discover her identity.
I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls… - Anne Frank. This quote means that no matter how hard it was to keep hiding it was interesting. I have had a different life from so many different girls that has been a real adventure. So, she traded that diary like if her whole life was there, and it is true, ever since they have been hiding, her life was that diary. Anne Frank was a girl that got famous for writing a journal, she was always hiding from the German’s and what she felt during she was in the secret annex.
Whereas Stanley is a brute guy, who without any problem would destroy past myth and create a new happy generation with his wife, Stella (49). Abbotson says that when the play was premiered after World War II, in a post-Freudian age, many were not pleased with the play 's ending (50). Though it was successful in the eye of the public because of its war references (Blanche 's meetings with soldiers and the lamenting on the war with Stanley and his friends) and therefore it became historically creditable. Moreover, the first director of A Streetcar Named Desire had seen Blanche as the play 's main character, although many critic complained that he sympathized more with Stanley 's
After some light conversations, Rochester has found himself in love with Jane because of her mind. He ignores her “plainness” and finds her true beauty to be her personality (Bronte 177). Jane is just an orphan and Rochester is a wealthy, well respected man. In the Victorian era, their significant social class difference posed a challenge for their relationship. Rochester fights the social norms and tries to marry Jane no matter what.
After spending years married to Tom, she has become used to looking into the material items. When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92). The reason Daisy is so upset is because she acknowledges that she could have had multiple materialistic gains whist being married to Gatsby in a love-filled relationship. When she sees what she could have had her mirage of a perfect life begins to crumble. But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently.
Winfield 2 Although many characters in Belle Prater’s Boy were affected, Gypsy was affected the most seeing that it determined her nickname, her father’s death, and her feeling invisible. Society immediately judges someone based off the way they look. The importance of a beautiful or ugly appearance has not changed since the 1950’s.Even now today people think the best person to marry is the prettiest. Gypsy’s nickname was determined based off how she looked. It is and always will be incorrect to judge someone’s character based off his or her
Daisy is simply the vehicle for Gatsby’s impossible dream, and not really a person to Gatsby at all. Even Nick projects only what he wants to see upon her, after one of Gatsby’s parties. He sees her distaste for the party and says, “She saw something awful in the very simplicity she failed to understand” (114). However, Nick is misinterprets Daisy’s sentiment, she sees an awfulness in the lack of simplicity- the showiness of money repels her and her image of Gatsby in those simple days when they first met fully contradicts what she sees now. But Nick sees only what he wants to see.
Julia and Winston are similar in many aspects but also very different in others. Their main similarities that are propionate to me is they are both rebellions fatalism, in love affair with one another, and they both Hates the party. On the country Julia is 26 when Winston is 39. Not only is there an age difference difference but also their level of happiness. They are truly in love with each other but not enough because at the end of the book in room 101 Winston begs the party in saying "Not me, do it to Julia."
