Even as readers, we do not know everything there is to know, especially when dealing with Jay Gatsby, but what we do know still manages to be contradicted by the complicated character of Daisy. It is recognizable that Daisy continually denies reality for her own convenience within her individual relationships mainly involving Tom and Gatsby, which deal with Tom’s affair, the situation of Gatsby, the feeling of regret following the realization of her first love, and her past of loving Tom. To start off, it is known that Daisy chooses to contradict many things going on in her life. In this time period, it was not uncommon for married men to have affairs with other women, while the other way around was not acceptable. When reading this novel, we
Both the poem “Warren Pryor” by Alden Nowlan and the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr express a depressing tone. “Warren Pryor” is about a son who chooses a career that he dislikes in order to please his parents. “Harrison Bergeron” is about a dystopian society where excellence in any way is considered a disadvantage and inequality for others. In both texts, the protagonists all face the barrier of having their nature being stifled; however, the speaker in the poem chooses not to fight back for himself, while the majority in the short story is not even able to realize the barrier that they face. In the poem, the speaker Warren Pryor is under the pressure and high expectation of his parents that he has to choose to work

He’s not playing anymore. He’s not having fun. This isn’t about torturing the kid sister, teasing her for being too small, too slow, too female to run with boys. “You scare me Grace.” Alexei sounds like he doesn’t want to admit it. But he does.
He walks in wanting to seem like a friend, not a business man. He also doesn’t tell her what the condition is. He grabs her interest and gets her genuinely concerned about it before he even tells her what it is. He even says that it is something they “are not prepared to give.” Which is definitely not true. Why would Campbell be in there if he wasn’t trying to persuade her?
Elisa’s emptiness affected her marriage with her husband, Henry, who both did not communicate with another on what they both desire. According Gregory J. Palmerino, he describes “The third movement of the story clearly illustrates the couple 's problem with conflict and their overall inability to engage each other without evasion” (Palmerino). Palmerino interpretation of Elisa and her husband, Henry, is that they are incapable of communicating with each because they both chose to be avoiding one another. According to Palmerino, “Henry 's response to his wife 's indirect efforts to arouse a more authentic reaction from him fails miserably when he says, ‘You look so nice!’ (11)” (Palmerino). Henry tries to compliment his wife, Elisa, but fails

It doesn’t matter to him that, once alone with it, the ghost could “assume some other horrible form,/which might deprive [his] sovereignty of reason” (1.4, 72-3).

In some cases, he supports this by claiming to know the truth of a situation, but in many cases he feels this way without any proof. Even prior to the ghost’s appearance, he doesn’t like his mother or uncle.
She refuses to participate in a loveless marriage that only acts as a business relation. This is shown when Simon Rosedale proposes to Lily. Simon knows that Lily does not love him and he states his marriage proposal as one would present a business proposal, saying “‘ I’ve

Love does not have any shape, It does not look at social classes, skin color, even if your parents do not like you to be with her or him, but sometimes those are small obstacles that do not allow us to be with the person we love. A clear example, can be Ophelia and Hamlet in the play called Hamlet written by William Shakespeare.
