As Gatsby dwells on the time where Daisy committed her love to him, he has come to believe that he is entitled to Daisy’s love. In reality, Daisy has moved on with her life, and Gatsby’s fantasy would destroy a mother-daughter bond and a marriage. Despite the catastrophic consequences, Gatsby makes an attempt to disrupt Daisy’s life when he exclaims, “I’ve got something to tell you, old sport…”(130). This interjection arose out of pure frustration and did not bring any guilt to Gatsby. He intended to expose his and Daisy’s affair and, with this, risk the destruction of Daisy’s relationships.
This lack of change reflects how people commit sinful acts and are incapable of fixing their mistakes. Instead of confronting their problems, some would rather run away, hoping the issue would fix itself. After having slept with Elaine, Lancelot felt dirtied by his actions, swearing to “not salew her nother speak with her” (Malory 82). He finds an escape from reality – responsibilities and consequences - and submits to his fantasy. In avoidance of discussing his adulterous act and his newly gained child, Galahad, Lancelot hides behind a false face and dodges his sin, concealing his relationship with Lady Elaine.
This is a logical response to this sort of prophecy. Oedipus thought that he was using his free will to decide to flee so that his prophecy wouldn’t come true, however, he actually wasn’t. Given the information that he had, he believed that Polybus and Merope were his real parents. This led him to his decision to run away If he had known that they were not his real parents he might have chosen to stay with them and, therefore, not fulfil the prophecy. He would have never chosen to stay based on the information he had because he thought that Polybus and Merope were his real parents.
Being an evil villain can lead to many horrible disasters and problems, especially when you have everything in the whole wide world, you feel entitled to be better than anyone else. Selfishness is the worst trait to have because no one will trust or like you. Sometimes people just care about themselves to get what they want. In the famous novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, he explains how money can drive people to being greedy and careless of others particularly their loved ones through characterizations of Daisy Buchanan. Daisy is a self- absorbed, vacuous socialite whose decisions lead to destruction of both Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson.
George is innocent because he also knew that the dream would never work out and there would never really be a safe place that Lennie and him could call home. ‘’ I think I knowed from the very first I think I knowed we would never do her he used to like hearin about it so much I got to thinkin maybe we would. In this quote George explains to Candy that the dream will never come true no matter what they do. George knew after what happened the dream would not happen and there would be no safe place for Lennie. Many people believe that George is guilty because he and Lennie could have gotten away but, George is innocent because he also knew that if he did not kill lennie he would suffer when Curley got to him.
Gatsby’s new and made up identity is what even gives him a chance with Daisy. As an attempt to chase away this negative identity, Gatsby is obsessed with the idea of marrying Daisy. However, Gatsby’s lies and past catch up to him when Daisy realizes she cannot and does not want to get over the idea of the stain that is left on Gatsby due to his negative identity. Finally, because of the materialistic world that people live in today, it prevents not only Gatsby, but several people within society from being able to be with the person that they truly
Perhaps I made a mistake with Gatsby and Daisy. She's all he ever thought or talked about. His obsession was becoming quite more obvious and I always feared that the outcome would not be great. Daisy was always too busy liking the attention and crying over designer shirts to realize that she and Gatsby were in danger. Instead she let the affair go too far and it cost the life of Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson.
His motives are purely to trick Jane into marrying him even though he is already married. It’s worse than the first lie as this is committing bigamy, which is a crime. Now it’s not all terrible. It can easy to empathize with and see Mr. Rochester’s side, as he can’t get a divorce because his wife is insane. Also, he truly loves Jane, and she loves him too, so he’s not manipulating her into marrying him.
