Tom pressures Nick to stay and drink with him and Nick has only been “drunk twice in my life and the second time was that afternoon” (pg. 33) at the hotel party; where Tom has an affair with Myrtle. He has no moral concern about his own affair with Myrtle, but still “broke her nose with his open hand” (pg.41) when she says Daisy’s name. on the other hand, he begins to suspect Daisy and Gatsby of having an affair as well, Tom becomes outraged and enforces to meet Gatsby himself. Tom is a static character, meaning he does not have any moral or physical change in The Great Gatsby.
Gatsby even throws a party just so that Daisy will come to his house, and he will be able to talk to her like old times. After the party, Gatsby asked Nick if Daisy enjoyed the party because she did not seem like she did, and that was all he cared about. He was not interested in anyone else having a good time except for Daisy. Later on in the conversations Gatsby tells Nick, "Can 't repeat the past? Why of course you can!"
As previously mentioned, Truman is incredibly attached to the people close to him, which prevents him from leaving Seahaven. “...and the last thing I’d ever do is lie to you,” Marlon, Truman’s childhood friend, says to him when they talk shortly after Meryl’s breakdown. Marlon, whose lines are being fed by Christof, assures Truman there is no reason to be suspicious, and if there is anything that is going on, he is not a part of it. Marlon tells Truman that he has travelled everywhere but Seahaven is the perfect place to be and there should be no reason to want to leave. Meanwhile, Meryl takes a different approach and tries to talk Truman out of every place he considers going.
The relevance of foreshadowing elements appears consistently throughout The Great Gatsby. One of the first times Fitzgerald uses foreshadowing is when Nick goes into the taxi for the first time and keeps thinking to himself “you can’t live forever, you can’t live forever” (Fitzgerald 40). This line seems out-of-place when the reader sees it for the first time, but the writer uses it ingeniously. Fitzgerald adds this quote to foreshadow Myrtle and Gatsby’s death. Later on in the novel, the author uses another example of foreshadowing when Daisy goes to Nick’s house for tea.
Rafe's thoughts were “Still, Leo had a point. If this mission was going to be worth doing, I needed to do it right” (Pages 112-114, Patterson). Rafe is going to keep his “no-hurt rule” and follow Leo's guidelines and new rules by making sure he doesn't pull a stunt on Zeke and Kenny again and that he doesn't get detention or in trouble with his mother. For instance, he won’t interact with Zeke and Kenny because he nearly got caught and in big trouble with the principal. In addition, before the new rules, Rafe insisted “If I get detention, it's one week of time out.
While Daisy is able to move on, Gatsby’s becomes even more passionate, and this quickly grows into an obsession. Despite how Gatsby may feel about Daisy, it is clear that he is never in love with her as a person; he loves the idea of her, the way she makes him feel: important, worthwhile, even valuable. Jordan reveals to Nick, “Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be right across the bay” (Fitzgerald 68). Gatsby’s obsession with Daisy forces him into social isolation. The extravagant house parties that Gatsby throws are for the sole purpose of attracting Daisy’s attention, but since she never attends them, he has no reason to take part in the festivities; his guests barely know a thing about him and base their judgement off of rumours.
The 1920’s, America booming with newly found individuality, independence, and freedom that bared from the fallout of World War 1, a time where practically penniless men turned into billionaires overnight, and back again within the next, where women could dress, do, and go wherever they desired, but above all, what began to determined the world of some, that determined the world of many. “The Great Gatsby”, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, is a perfect example of this truth. This literary piece exemplifies a almost satire like critique of American life in the 1920’s. Each character of “The Great Gatsby” display a certain quality of a particular persona of the middle to high white social classes that were common at the time. All of which are observed by the self righteous judgemental eyes of Nick Carraway, through him we observe immoral, ill content, and irrational actions that enact all in the name of the pursuance of love and happiness.
Even after learning he is a wizard, Harry is forced to repress that fact every summer when he must return to his aunt and uncle’s house to await the next school year. This forces Harry into a routine that is tedious, difficult, and borderline oppressive. While at his aunt and uncle’s house, Harry cannot act freely nor express his wishes, desires, or needs. Because of this situation, Harry is always glad to return to Hogwarts, breaking him out of his backbreaking routine and into a world that is ever changing and unpredictable. Here not only does Harry have an unprecedented level of independence, but he is not required to conform to what an uncaring authority figure thinks; the teachers at Hogwarts tend to be fairly forgiving of Harry’s behavior.

Fitzgerald makes it apparent throughout the novel that Gatsby does everything in hopes to compete against Tom and impress Daisy. For example, Gatsby throws lavish parties every weekend with the hope that Daisy will stumble in, and then they will be reunited and return to their old ways. Additionally, when Gatsby moves to the West Egg, he purposefully purchases an extravagant mansion near the Buchanan’s mansion where he can view their emerald light on his dock. Throughout the duration of The Great Gatsby, Gatsby noticeably envies Tom Buchanan, Daisy’s husband, for seizing the life that Gatsby was not able to achieve. Gatsby longs to return to the passionate relationship they had five years prior and maybe even create a family similar to the family Daisy has with Tom.
Gatsby, was always trying to impress people with his fancy cars and always hosting parties, it was like he was searching for something that he just could not find.
