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

Then Esther said calmly yet sharply “You three think you 're so special. Your mom doesn 't love you. Your dad doesn 't love you. Your mom only stayed because she wanted to use you for your money.

Working for Mrs. Crater could have been easily been a chance for him to have a consistent place to live, have food to eat, and live a quiet and peaceful life but instead he allows his less than honorable moral compass direct him to lie to, cheat, and more or less steal from Mrs. Crater and LucyNell by lying to Mrs. Crater and making a deal to marry her daughter in exchange for the car and a paid for wedding with no intentions of remaining married to LucyNell, and later leaving a severely mentally handicapped woman abandoned and stranded in a diner in a random town. While Mr.Shiftlet is obviously a man of very rotten morals, Mrs. Crater is not innocent either. She shows her low-moral fiber by her desire to rid herself of her mentally handicapped daughter by pawning her off to a man that she has only known for a relatively short period of time. When examining the writing itself, there are metaphors and similes as well as some comments that speak on the world being rotten as a whole. For example, when Mr. Shiftlet is talking with Mrs. Crater and says that “...
In the second paragraph of the story the author states that she is suffering because she doesn't have the things she wants by saying, “She suffered endlessly, feeling herself born for every delicacy and luxury. She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains.” (Guy de Maupassant 2) “She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing. And these were the only things she loved;” (Guy de Maupassant 2) The author included this to let the readers know what kind of “Poverty” Matilde was living in. Mathilde doesn't seem to love her husband as much. He thinks different about her.
The story begins with Mathilde sitting at home wondering why she couldn 't live the elaborate lifestyle. Mathilde felt entitled to every luxury and comfort of the upper class: “‘She suffered constantly, feeling that all the attributes of a gracious life, every luxury, should rightly have been hers’”(Maupassant 333). Mathilde hated her simple belongings, and she pitied herself because she was short of fortune. She felt that she deserved to be adored by men and resented by women: “‘ She had longed so eagerly to charm, to be desired, to be wildly attractive and sought after.”’ (Maupassant 334). Mathilde felt she would only be lusted after if she had all the treasures.
It not only concerns his family that he sees his human worth out of money, but it worries them because they are not able to trust him to be responsible and just when making decisions. While the Younger family wants to own a house and receive a stronger income, Walter is the only one who obsesses over it and allows it to alter the ways in which he treats important people in his life. Segregation caused dreams to become deferred, and weights were put onto the families during the 1950s. Due to segregation, they could not afford what white families could, and this was because they were paid less in the workforce. “How sweet it would be if I found I could fly.
Madame Loisel wanted everyone to believe that she was wealthy, even if it was only for one magical evening. She craved the attention and vanity that the diamond necklace carried within itself, however it was later declared that it was an imitation thus making her feel ashamed. She lives in a fantasy world where she believed she entitled to more wealth and jewels henceforth she believes she has been scammed out of the use of her beauty and charm. These two characters have had nothing good happen to them because of their antagonistic and futile ways; Madame was not responsible about her losing Madame Forestier’s necklace and not simply telling her it was a mistake whilst the vicious sister in Unpopular Gal had a clouded judgement about her priorities thus making egotism and revenge to her sister her ultimate priority. These themes showcase the dreams and minds of these characters, as Gaiman
