It is important to understand how Gatsby’s dreams interact with reality and variety of symbolism used in the text. Firstly, F. Scott Fitzgerald highlights some characteristics of Gatsby that suggest an obsessive character, due to his passionate love for Daisy extended to an abnormal degree. Gatsby was in love with a memory he wanted to recreate in the present, "It was a strange coincidence," Nick said. "But it wasn 't a coincidence at all." "Why not?"
As mentioned in the introduction, Fitzgerald parallels many characters in The Great Gatsby and the people in his life. Fitzgerald has two main parallels in his story, those being Nick and Gatsby. Fitzgerald’s wife, Zelda, finds her parallel in Daisy. Fitzgerald has said that Nick is a parallel to him, and I find it odd that somebody who is seemingly happily married would connect himself with a character who is very likely homosexual. Gatsby and Fitzgerald have a bit more in common.
In the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jay Gatsby is a poor man at heart despite how wealthy he is. Gatsby was and forever will be in love with Daisy Buchanan, the love he had for her is very, very strong, Daisy was his long lost sweetheart. Gatsby is a man with wealthy, serious, and always threw the best lavish parties that everybody goes to. The story of this novel reveals the true ‘Jay Gatsby’ and the closer Gatsby and Nick are the more Gatsby opened up about who he really is. Jay Gatsby is the most impacted people in this novel.
A Genuine Value In William Maxwell’s TLWB, the author emphasizes the calmness of a wealthy couple toward meeting with a breakin by burglars. On the other hand, the story of D.H. Lawrence’s TRHW is about a boy who sacrifices himself because of going mad to fill his greedy mother’s desire of getting luck. Although these stories are completely differed in the story, it is common that both of the authors attempt to show the theme of gaining something ideal by losing something valuable. It can be also said in our actual lives because humans are destined to run up against this kind of wall because love and materialism are difficult to be incompatible, greed takes away our real happiness, and innocence often brings personal sacrifice. Love is far apart from materialism.
Cash, with its characteristic capacity to captivate, boggle, and control, has for quite some time been a question of man 's fixations. It inspires sentiments of outrage, desire, voracity, and envy, sentiments of energy, predominance, and satisfaction. The conviction that all is good that riches offers gives the start to Daisy Buchanan 's associations with Tom and Gatsby in F. Scott Fitz-gerald 's novel, The Great Gatsby. Daisy 's requirement for this sentiment assurance forces her to marry the princely Tom Buchanan, as opposed to the impecunious Gatsby. At in the first place, Gatsby abuses her want for a protected social position so as to win her love, and through it, her cash.
Gatsby was inviting Nick to his parties because he knew Nick was cousins with Daisy, and Nick could help Gatsby and Daisy to regain the love they once had for each other. Gatsby was hoping that since he has invited Nick to all the parties that he hosted that in return, Nick would do something nice to him. Nick does not realize that Gatsby is using him this way until the day that Gatsby told him what he wanted him to do. Gatsby achieved the goal, he wanted through Nick because he finally got to meet Daisy. Gatsby was really selfish because he tricked Nick into being his friend, but all he really wanted from Nick to get him and Daisy back together.
One thing that the movie does very well is show how Gatsby believes that past can be repeated and is still longing for Daisy. He is bringing Daisy to his party and too his house to show her that he has the wealth now to provide for her and that he can please her more than Tom can. The movie makes it evident that Gatsby still believes that Daisy never loved Tom and that she only loved him and shows that when Gatsby and Nick confront each other. The director also did a tremendous job in showing Tom, Daisy, and Jordan’s carelessness in every situation especially Myrtles death. How they let everyone clean up the mess by leaving and removing themselves from the situation when Gatsby is killed especially.
The night acts as a shield and shelters the two lovers by protecting their secret. Night is also known to be the most romantic time. (120) Judgement • Dr T Eckleburg is an icon for judgement as he looks down at the valley of the ashes • There is also a symbol that represent the judgement that society plays on Great Gatsby • The billboard that Great Gatsby and Tom drive past is also used as a symbol of how Tom also judges Great Gatsby in his own way. Gatsby’s undying love for Daisy. • the green light that appears on Daisy’s dock is a symbol for how well Gatsby knows Daisy and in turn how much he loves her.
Gatsby made up his family background and pretended to be a nobleman. He was very self-abased and this sense of self-abased pushed him to work hard to walk into the world of the Accepted. Daisy was the first “nice” girl Gatsby had ever met. He had come in contact with such people but always with indiscernible barbed wire between. Gatsby found her excitingly desirable.
