Fitzgerald described Zelda by saying this, "I love her, and that's the beginning and the end of everything" (By F. Scott Fitzgerald). Throughout The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald writes using the fictional characters, Daisy Buchanan and Jay Gatsby, but the story contains events from his and Zelda's real lives. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a fictional dramatized novel. The story involves the main character Jay Gatsby and his attraction to his love interest Daisy Buchanan (Jay Gatsby). In the story the narrator, Nick Carraway, moves to West Egg on Long Island.
In our world today, money and love seem to be two important pieces to life. These are seen every where in everyday life. Within the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald we see the subject of love and money a lot. Throughout the book, we as readers continue to observe relationships involving either love or money. One example of love that I found is the relationship between Gatsby and Daisy.
In this book, Gerald gets abused by his drunk father. He wants to get rid of him, but Monique, the mother is very loyal to Jordan and defends him. This makes Gerald’s life miserable, and the only thing that brings a smile to his face is his step-sister, Angel, whom he possesses and cares for. Therefore, referring to some parts, and experience as a person, I can state that loyalty doesn’t always go both ways. Many people do not care if loyalty doesn’t return to them.
Gatsby’s obsession is also illustrated by the fact that he hopes that Daisy will just randomly show up to one of his parties like many other people do (81). Daisy was born into the upper-class lifestyle, “’She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart, she never loved anyone except me!’”
Even though Rose is a great wife to Troy, he still is so discontent with his life that he cheats on her. Troy tells Rose on page 69, "It ain't about nobody being a better woman or nothing. Rose, you ain't the blame. A man couldn't ask for no woman to be a better wife than you've been" (Wilson, 1986). This shows that Troy was fortunate enough to have Rose as his wife, but he was so unhappy with his life he found someone else to be with and love.
When their husbands would leave, they would have to feel lonely while the Husband could go off and cheat. For example, when odysseus left Penelope all alone, he went out and cheated on her with Calypso. Although many people believe that Homer presented woman positively, the characters the Sirens, Scylla and Calypso actually suggest the opposite. First of all ,Homer portrays the sirens as manipulative. When Odysseus returns to Aeaea, he stays with circe for the last time.
Keep this in mind. Finally, Zelda’s parallel, Daisy, is portrayed in a very unflattering way. Daisy only loves money, which is why she ended up with an abusive cheater. Daisy only takes notice of Gatsby, the one who parallels her husband, after she discovers his wealth. Then, when he dies, she doesn’t even attend his funeral.
When they first meet, they did love each other, but their social class’ separated each other, physically and mentally. Daisy didn’t want to marry a man who came from rags and is a general nobody, she wants to marry someone who is wealthy and inherited money. That’s why she married Tom. He had money and social status, but he was arrogant and abusive. In Daisy’s eyes however, that was more than enough for her.
Through Curley’s wife, Crooks, and Candy, John Steinbeck had used his way to state how those characters had endured their loneliness throughout the book “Of Mice and Men”. Curley’s wife would not be a pleasant character in many ways. As a wife of manager’s son, she was described as a charming and flirty woman and treated others with scorn. However, her appearances later had shown actually she was just an immature, innocent and lonely woman who missed her chance to be a successful movie star in Hollywood and compelled to marry Curley. “If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch but she knew she could do nothing about it.
Daisy has suspicions of her husband’s infidelity but has not been told by Tom that she is being betrayed. “Tom had frequently been unfaithful to her, the first time within the first three months of their marriage” (Parr). “Wilson tells Tom that he suspects “something funny” about his wife, and Tom realizes that Wilson has caught on that his wife is having an affair, although he does not know the affair is with Tom” (Lathbury 7). Tom not only strains his own marriage by being unfaithful to his wife, but he puts a large strain on the Wilson’s marriage. His deceitfulness causes tension and distance between George and Myrtle
Francie is heartbroken after finding out that her lover, Lee Rhynor, returned back to his home after war and had married another girl, despite his previous confession of love for Francie. This betrayal causes Francie to lose the last of her innocence, as she was “a girl who had come face to face with some of the evil of the world and most of its hardships, and yet had remained curiously untouched by the world” (463). Francie was six years younger than Lee, and though she was “tremendously innocent” and impressionable during their brief time together, she was deeply in love with him. She snaps back into reality, knowing that those who she truly loves have the ability to break her heart and deceive her, as Lee had done when pretending to be in
Julia and Winston are similar in many aspects but also very different in others. Their main similarities that are propionate to me is they are both rebellions fatalism, in love affair with one another, and they both Hates the party. On the country Julia is 26 when Winston is 39. Not only is there an age difference difference but also their level of happiness. They are truly in love with each other but not enough because at the end of the book in room 101 Winston begs the party in saying "Not me, do it to Julia."
This shows the inequality of men and women’ rights. Daisy and Tom’s relationship end up compatible as Daisy chooses Tom over Gatsby because Gatsby doesn’t have the background and security Tom can offer; Tom says Gatsby is "a common bootlegger.” Also Daisy scared to get in trouble for killing Myrtle. She conspires with Tom to make Gatsby the one who pays for the accident.They are both selfish. Their conflict resolves as they
