Daisy doesn 't love Tom because she is in love with Gatsby. Daisy and Gatsby had been in love a few years before, but when Gatsby left to fight in World War one Daisy married Tom. Gatsby came back from the war with all intentions to get her back. He made money illegally and bought a house across the bay from her to try to win her back. He also threw lavish parties in hopes to reel her into his house to show her how much money he had: “It is all a
Using this persona he gives into these instincts. Anger and rage are basic instincts that society does not look kindly upon. It expects them to be suppressed, however Bruce is overwhelmed by these instincts that manifest themselves in behaviors such as violence and destruction. We see these instincts in him, when his mentor asks him if he blames himself for his parents’ death, to which he responds that his “anger outweighs [his] guilt” (Movie Citation). We see the behaviors that society disapproves such as getting into fights, and a car chase scene where he destroys lots of property.
The people in charge may have argued that he was too involved and even though he never went through with the plots he deserved death. Since he had no protection from a jury or even his own input he was hung for just being involved. His name was attached to Booth’s and this made him a wanted man. This world is full of sin and corruption.
This excerpt connects Bigger’s fear of being caught for murdering Mary with reality, since the reporters have now found her burned bones. Bigger keeps asking himself what the reporter is doing, when he knows they are finding the bones. Since the fear of being incarcerated is so prevalent on Bigger’s mind, he is trying to convince himself that maybe it is something else they are looking at. In addition, when they are finding the bones, Bigger becomes paranoid and his “muscles twitched” from his fear and anxiousness in the moment. Bigger wanted to see what the man was looking at, but he knows that it will give him away if he seems too interested.
They each had something happen to them in the past that they could not get over. Jay Gatsby was very in love with Daisy Buchanen when he was younger, but she was with someone else, a wealthy man named Tom. Gatsby could not get over Daisy, he would do anything to get her back. In an attempt to get her to notice him once again, he held these huge, extravagant parties at his house in the hopes that maybe one day she would show up. He went through a lot of effort just for the girl of his dreams.
This person was his first lover Daisy. Gatsby and Daisy had a connection to each other before Gatsby left for the military. Along came Tom who tied the knot on Daisy. This left Gatsby heartbroken and everything he did in his life later on was to impress Daisy and hope she showed up to one of his extravagant parties. Everything in his house he looked at through Daisy; “he hadn't once ceased looking at Daisy, and I think he revalued everything in his house according to the measure of response it drew from her well-loved eyes” (Fitzgerald 5.112).
They both cheat on each other and yet they come together at the end of the day and show their fondness and love for one another. “Tom’s got some woman in New York.” (Fitzgerald 15). Daisy and Jordan both know Tom is cheating on Daisy with some woman in the city. While Tom thinks he’s ingenious and doesn’t bring up his mistress when Jay and Daisy try to tell Tom that they want to be together.
Gatsby was someone who was considered to have actually accomplished the “American Dream.” However, even though he earned his fortune (through illicit ways) he was still unsatisfied because he wanted Daisy. In the end, he briefly had her and then proceeded to lose her and his life. Fitzgerald writes the tragic story of someone who ultimately achieved the “American Dream” to express his opinion that it was unrealistic and unfulfilling. In his search for money, Gatsby lost the one person he loved and did not see her again for almost five years.
He meets a man named Dan Cody and spends five years with him on his boat. He later meets a girl named Daisy, who he falls in love with, while he is training for the war. He promises to come back to her after the war, however she does not keep her promise and marries Tom Buchanan. When Gatsby returns from the war he gets involved in an illegal business in which he sells alcohol and owns multiple drug stores. He uses his money to buy a luxurious house across the bay from Daisy's house trying to win her love back.
To me it’s poorly written because he killed a man, but because his guilt took him over he couldn’t handle all the pressure and turned himself. Like, if you’re going to kill someone for a dumb reason at least have a smarter way of covering it up. I understand how people say it’s just a story and that it’s is very entertaining, but if you think about it the story that is entertaining you is a story of insanity and death and I don’t find that very entertaining. In the story the Tell Tale Heart a man or caregiver kills an old man because of his eye.
This lead to Daisy falling in love for Tom Buchanan, not only for his looks but for his wealth. Even though Gatsby knew Daisy was no longer his, he looked for Daisy everyday. This inspired him even more to pursue his dream to become successful and wealthy to win Daisy back. After this Gatsby spends his life doing nothing but trying to earn as much money as possible.
Seen by others “As soon as I arrived I made an attempt to find my host, but the two or three people of whom I asked his whereabouts stared at me in such an amazed way, and denied so vehemently any knowledge of his movements, that I slunk off in the direction of the cocktail table – the only place in the garden where a single man could linger without looking purposeless and alone.” (Fitzgerald, 42) This quote describes Nick and how he gets invited to Gatsby’s party when he doesn’t know who Gatsby is. He asks people at the party and they have never seen him before. Gatsby is seen as mysterious to many people.
Nick’s comments on the ethnicity are less direct and brutal than Tom’s, but still show the upper-class negative and suspicious attitude towards the ethnic groups emphasizing the importance of ethnic hierarchy. Nick suggests, “ A dead man passed us… The friends looked out at us with the tragic short upper lips of southern Europe, and I was glad that the sight of Gatsby’s splendid car was included in their somber holiday” (Fitzgerald 69). The statement that Nick makes is not as absurd as the ones of Tom but still have discriminatory motifs.
The Great Gatsby written by F.Scott Fitzgerald takes place during the 1920s. The time of parties and money. However the time also focuses on accomplishing the American dream. The dream can be anything you want it to be. Most characters had money on their mind and the main focus of their own life.
