In the sixth chapter of the great Gatsby, Daisy, Nick, and Tom both go to one of Jay Gatsby’s parties. There, she danced with Gatsby and sat at tables with Nick when Gatsby had to take a phone call. Even though Daisy attended Gatsby’s party, “‘she didn’t have a good time’” (page 109). Gatsby expected Daisy to enjoy herself but got proven wrong, this represents situational irony, F. Scott Fitzgerald utilizes this form of irony to portray how Daisy requires some form of material object for her to feel happy, as shown in this chapter, she had the only option to socialize, which “She saw something awful in the very simplicity she failed to understand” (page 107). Situational irony also gets illustrated in this section of the chapter because wealthy
The two settings used the most throughout the book is West Egg and the Valley of Ashes. West Egg is the area where all the new money people live, including Gatsby. At Gatsby's house, wild lavish parties are very common. However, everyone who attends those parties don't even know Gatsby, they just come because they want to have fun and not worry about anything. Meanwhile, there's the Valley of Ashes, an area outside of the city which is a gray and dull place where ashes and other waste is dumped.
Nick: “It was a strange coincidence,” I said. “But it wasn’t a coincidence at all.” “Why not?” “Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be just across the bay.” Then it had not been just the stars to which he had aspired on that June night. He came alive to me, delivered suddenly from the womb of his purposeless splendor. "He wants to know," continued Jordan, "if you 'll invite Daisy to your house some afternoon and then let him come over. "But Nick is clearly swept up by the idea that Gatsby 's passion for Daisy is driven by overwhelming love out of love or obsessiveness, Gatsby kept a scrapbook of memorabilia about Daisy.
and "JAY PAYS FOR EVERYTHING: PARTIES, GALAS, PARKS, SCHOOLS!" (cite). RELATE BACK TO THESIS Another major scene that the movie maintained from the book is the scene where Gatsby is throwing shirts over the railing at Daisy in his mansion. This scene was kept in the movie as it represented the toxicity of materialism and also the faults in the American Dream. The scene provides character traits that are essential in moving the plot.
However, The key thing about Daisys character is that she is Gatsby’s American dream. The novel shows us this mostly through Nicks narrations especially about his past and how coming from a poor family being excepted and loved by Daisy would mean that he had finally reached his American dream. In the film we also see this idea slowly revealed and this movie takes advantage to show us Gatsby and Daisys past, visually seeing why Daisy is so important to Gatsby. The film takes what was told during the novel and keeps the character of Daisy extremely similar to her novel version, and is faithful
He believes that if he can get rich enough that Daisy will leave Tom for him which shows how little he thinks of Daisy, if he thinks that she will only get back together with him if he has money. The parties for Gatsby are more about putting on a good public display. Jay Gatsby is very concerned with his outward appearance, particularly when Daisy Buchanan is the one whose attention he has caught. For Gatsby to throw extravagant parties every day for a whole summer shows that he is a hopeful person even though he had no indication that Daisy will someday show up at his party, but maybe too hopeful of a person. As the plot disentangles, Fitzgerald exposes Gatsby 's dark roots, including his partygoers ' assumptions that he killed a man or is actually a German spy from the Third Reich, and the fact that he can never get the story regarding how he climbed to prosperity, straight.
One day, the marquis suggests that Julia should marry Duke de Luovo, an old, evil character, quietly the same as her father. Julia refuses to marry the duke and sinks in deep grief and depression but finally convinced by her brother Ferdinand to elope with Hippolitus, the night before her wedding. Unfortunately, their escape is failed; the Marquis and the Duke attack the couple in the hollow tunnels underneath the castle. The marquis stabs Hippolitus and throws Julia in a solitary boarding prison located on the remote south part of the castle grounds. 25 Later, Julia was informed that Hippolitus has died.
Gatsby lives with the dream of reinstating a past he once shared with the love of his life, Daisy Buchanan. His efforts to re-woo her extend those of any normal person; he forges a livelihood as a bootlegger during the prohibition, buys a gaudy house in New York’s West Egg (directly across the bay from Daisy’s in prestigous East Egg), and even attempts to pursue an affair with Daisy, who is married to the brutish and presumably abusive Tom Buchanan. In all of these acts to attempt to live a life that he was clearly not cut out for, Gatsby remains wholly oblivious to the details that sell out the fact that he is an outsider within this life he’s made for himself solely to gain the attention of Daisy. The character, so-called “Owl Eyes”, the large figure of wisdom in the novel remarks on Gatsby’s impressive collection of books; “‘See!’ he cried triumphantly. ‘It's a bona-fide piece of printed matter.
His second novel, The Beautiful and Damned, was published two years later, and tells the story of a young man and his beautiful wife, who gradually deteriorate into careworn middle age while they wait for the young man to inherit a large fortune. It 's personally a hilarious fact that this has so much irony, just what happened in his book, happened to him and his wife. Zelda suffered from mental diseases and was diagnosed with schizophrenia and when one of Fitzgerald 's stories "Tender is the Night" became a failure, he was destroyed by this fact and started drinking, ending up as an alcoholic. On 1940 the 24th of December, Fitzgerald died of a heart attack, leaving his wife and daughter, and he believing he was nothing more than a

Nick came to East Egg because he was working in a bond business and rented a house. He also wanted a new lifestyle and was ready for a change. 9. Why do Daisy and Tom Buchanan invite Nick to dinner? Daisy and Tom invited Nick to dinner because Daisy is his cousin and Nick was also new to the town.
Therefore, his traits frame his lifestyle, mindset, and individuality throughout the novel. Tom’s lifestyle revolves around his mischievous actions. Aunt Polly had instructed Tom to whitewash the fence but he didn’t want to. Instead he tricked the people in the neighborhood to do the work for him. He made the job to whitewash the fence seem like a privilege.
In the book, Clover thought that Summer was an innocent, beautiful girl who would live with him forever, but in reality, Summer was the conniving little mastermind coming up with ways to escape and found a least one of the other three people in the cellar to help try to escape too. When Clover comes down for dinner, he thinks of how beautiful Lily is and how she would stay with him forever. “ Lily entered the room behind Poppy, and I smiled. I could see why Lewis loved her. She had natural beauty, one that she embraced rather than plastering on thick makeup.
Involuntarily I glanced seaward—and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock. When I looked once more for Gatsby he had vanished, and I was alone again in the unquiet darkness.” Gatsby loved Daisy so much that he even went to the extent to build his house across the sound from his love. He threw massive parties hoping Daisy would show at one of them. However, Gatsby had other motifs for his parties. The parties for him are also about putting on a good public display.
