The mediocre existence that Paul lives pushes him to pursue the addictive nature of art even more. He attains instant gratification from music, paintings, and theater but ultimately never finds true satisfaction from the arts. Paul’s happiness that he experiences is just an illusion because he does not truly understand what he is seeing or hearing. Like a true addict, Paul only wants a quick fix and consumes art as easily and fast as he can. He does not take the time to learn about art because of his need for immediate satisfaction.
(STEWE-2) This realization would then make him understand that when he originally thought he was satisfied with his relationships in his daily life, he truly was not.

Then, recalling what Clarisse told him, he realizes, "And that awful flower the other day, the dandelion! It had summed up everything, hadn't it? 'What a shame!
What i have noticed is that no matter how perfect a person is chances are they’re jealous of someone, nobody is perfect we are always striving to be better and people who are better than us make us jealous. The best thing you can do is talk to the friend you are jealous of because in the book Phineas is also jealous that Gene is doing so well in school. If they had discussed their jealousy towards each other chances are they would have laughed about it and Gene would have felt better knowing Phineas was not perfect and envied him. This book almost creates a sense of not being able to trust anyone because even your best friend could be jealous of you and could be potentially plotting against you. Miscommunication causes lots of problems if everyone just said what they were thinking the world would be a much safer and

Symbolism is a frequently used literary device that often creates foreshadowing and gives a deeper meaning to a work. In Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller uses many different examples of symbolism. It is possible for an object to symbolize multiple ideas. This often happens because different characters have different relationships with the object, and it therefore holds a different meaning for them. The stockings are a good example of this in Death of a Salesman.
Evidently, sex is not the only method Frank and April have found for themselves to deny their unhappy state of mind. An excessive consumption of alcohol and nicotine accompanies their daily life throughout the entire film, no matter if in times of desperation or relief. Frank smokes at his office out of boredom, has drinks with his colleagues after work out of habit, utilises Martinis as little helper to get Maureen tipsy, enthusiastically drinks a toast to the decision to move to Paris with his wife, and neither puts down the glass in critical situations while argumenting with her. In American Beauty, Lester’s drinking behaviour gradually changes in the course of the movie proportional to his gain of vitality. At the Fig.

You were quiet for a few minutes, then; - It’s pissing down with rain today, so do you mind if we just stay in and watch a movie? - Fine by me.
However, I have discussed the symbols that interested me, as a reader. With that in mind it is fair to conclude that symbols are very powerful factors in ‘Hedda Gabler’. They are present throughout the play and they issue a deeper significance to mundane, everyday objects; this supplies the reader with a more intimate view of the world in which the protagonist lives. Furthermore, these symbols are very powerful as they influence characters in both a conscious and unconscious manner. This is obvious through Carlyle’s words when he says: ‘It is through symbols that man consciously or unconsciously lives, works and has his being’

One of the first examples we see of Gatsby 's attempts to buy Daisy 's love is when he and Nick are discussing Daisy 's unknown run in with Gatsby. Gatsby is more concerned with the appearance of Nick 's house and his personal earnings than what he might even say to Daisy when she arrives. Nick goes out and buys some simple flowers and pastries, but Gatsby sends over the whole nine yards almost as if to mask Nick 's mediocrity compared to Gatsby 's massive house and wealth. In chapter six, a paragraph describes to what extent Gatsby goes to ensure the appearance of himself and Nick 's place are suitable. It says, "The flowers were unnecessary, for at two o 'clock a greenhouse arrived from Gatsby 's, with innumerable receptacles to contain it.
