His anger appeared after the appearance of Jay Gatsby in his life, Nick Carraway narrates “She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He was astounded. His mouth opened a little, and he looked at Gatsby, and then back at Daisy as if he had just recognized her as someone he knew a long time ago” (Fitzgerald 73). Tom Buchanan had noticed Daisy while she was telling Gatsby the she loves him and his symptoms of anger began to appear on him.

Author, F. Scott Fitzgerald, in his novel, The Great Gatsby, recounts the story of two love-struck people through another character called Nick. Fitzgerald’s purpose is to show how different characters change throughout the story by using many rhetorical elements like descriptive imagery, the choice of strong diction, and metaphors/similes.

The gentleman in the Victorian Age and in Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations My essay on Great Expectations will concentrate on the idea of a gentleman, both in the Victorian Era and in Charles Dickens’ perception, as shown in the novel, focusing on the harmful and destructive effects that society may have on the purest values of the human soul. The novel is written in the genre of “Bildungsroman”, which describes the life of the protagonist as a natural self- discovery, evolving from one stage to another. Through a Puritan Pilgrimage, the character advances from inexperience and misunderstanding, to wisdom and social integration. The narrator contrasts the Victorian concept of a gentleman as a man of wealth, status, and leisure with the gentleman as a man of moral integrity, humility and generosity. Thus, Dickens will reveal his didactic message, also discussed by Stuart Mill, that people should focus on their own character and identity, rather than trying to imitate the pattern imposed by society.

In both Death of a Salesman and The Great Gatsby, we get to experience the main protagonists
Authors often integrate symbols and motifs to their writing to foreshadow later events. In one of the most famous pieces of American literature, The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald drops hints to forecast terrible outcomes. The novel occurs during the roaring twenties and accentuates the wild and extravagant lifestyle of Long Island’s enclaves. In between East and West Egg’s opulence, there is the Valley of Ashes, a dark, grey wasteland.

Written Task 1 Rationale My written task is based on the novel “The Great Gatsby” by F.Scott Fitzgerald from Part 4 of the Language and Literature course.

In order to explore the complex relationship between Gatsby and Daisy and demonstrate my understanding of his characterisation in the novel, I have decided to express
