Lydia then asks again “But I thought that’s why we bought this house so that we wouldn’t have to do anything” (6). This demonstrates that sometimes taking the easier way out of a certain lifestyle or situation, only makes the situation at hand even worse. In this case, the easier way out for the parents is “buying happiness” which emotionally is not possible to a certain extent. This relates to the author’s idea because the parents reap what they sow, as for “buying their happiness” leads them to their death, meaning they pay for their actions in regard to buying this house. Secondly, the parents think that
While money can make someone happy it would only be temporary since money can not buy everything in the world for instance like love, friendship but other argue that it can like how Tom bought Daisy’s “love” but actually Daisy only married him just to use tom’s money to buy whatever she wants and so does Myrtle. And so does Gatsby who tried to win Daisy back by getting richer and showing off his possession like his mansion. Just because something makes you happy like money does not mean it will always make you
Both Guy de Maupassant and O.Henry utilize situational irony in their stories to impact the reader's emotion. In “The Necklace” Guy de Maupassant uses situational to create a sympathetic emotion. O.Henry utilizes situational irony in his story “Ransom of Red chief” to give the reader a humorous emotion. Now it is clear that both authors use situational irony to produce an emotion within the readers. Most people do not even notice, but everybody experiences situational irony throughout he or she’s everyday life.
The rhythm of the poem is cheerfully written only to mask and disguise the resentment truly felt by the author of the poem. All such attributes that characterize “My Papa’s Waltz” reminds the reader why it is such an enriching piece of literature, as its imagery can transparently express all that Roethke experienced emotionally. “My Papa’s Waltz” is a powerful poem that integrates an honest conversation towards the obnoxious nature of drunkenness. Theodore Roethke used this poetic piece to vividly display the perplex issues children in society deal with when confronting a family member who drinks. The poem’s nature is half affectionate and half satirical as it mocks the events his father placed on him that he never
recognizing that it is not always a blessing to have beauty and no substance which remarkably Christian comes to realize by himself. Love is thrown around quickly in the presence of beauty and despite Christian seeing this he and understanding love at first is relatively fickle he still partakes when he sees Roxane for the first time. Christian is quick to claim he loves Roxane but he barely knew her name at the time: “There! Quick—up there— In the box! Look!
In these stories, it seems that what the characters truly find valuable always turns out to be something other than money and riches. In Tuck Everlasting what Winnie found valuable in the beginning to her was freedom and just wanted to get out of her house and yard, but through most of the story and by the end she truly found valuable was the friends she had made during her journey and her home, and even though in this story many people would find the immortality that her friends had to be the most valuable thing in the universe, she saw them as valuable friends than immortal people. In A Christmas Carol Scrooge first saw money to be wealthy, but later in the story he saw that wealth to him was kindness and making up for what he had done in
It’s like telling people what to do, but not actually telling them what to do. But aside from that, the theme is treat others the way you want to be treated. There is evidence all over the book, some more obvious than others. This is especially applicable in the 4th chapter of the book when Scrooge is visited by the Ghost of Christmas Future. As Scrooge journeys to the future, he witnesses how much others respected him, and it wasn’t much.
Initially, “The Great Gatsby” can be seen as a painfully typical love story. As much as it is pretentious and unfortunate, it is a love story nonetheless. What makes it different than the average romantic novel is the symbolism and meaning that lays underneath the expensive lives of Nick Careaway and his upstart friends. The themes of “The Great Gatsby” are diverse and incoherently complex. The variety of motives and characteristics make reading the novel a sincerely unique experience, since the story and its’ morals will usually be what the readers makes them out to be in the end.
Another guarantee to someone’s dream is love, yes money is important, but almost everyone sees their lives with a husband/wife and some kids. The characters in The Great Gatsby also agree with this point to the list, married with a daughter, Tom and Daisy have the money situation figured out and even a bit of the love despite their old lovers or affairs. Even with Tom’s affair he still seems to love Daisy and their baby girl, he might not show it while out and about or with Myrtle, but who would not love their own child? George and Myrtle are another couple to seem to have the love, again, despite affairs. In the beginning of the novel, it shows how George does not have any suspicions about Myrtle’s affair because she hides it with ‘love’ and George does not find out about the affair until later.

With these things being said, the best husband for Janie would have to be Tea Cake. He has made a few mistakes, yes, but does the best he can to keep Janie happy and in love. It is depressing that Janie had to shoot him at the end of the novel, but at least she realizes that she was finally able to live the life she wanted for herself rather than the life her grandmother wanted for
The period of the nineteen twenties was characterized by dynamic social and economic trends. F. Scott Fitzgerald is a celebrated writer for not only his ability to write popular stories, but also his embodiment of the spirit of what was called the roaring twenties. Fitzgerald led a fiscally irresponsible life which was typical, even romanticized for that time. Additionally, he was known to write notable novels which enraptured the reader with adept uses of rhetorical tools and vivid descriptions instead of direct statements. This is common in two of his short stories, The Camel’s Back and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
For example Patrick Verona was overly nice, trying to get Katherina’s attention because of the bet, Petruchio did the same thing except there was no bet involved, Petruchio was flirting at first, saying “sweet” things to her. Another similarity they both have is the reason why they were both trying to tame the “shrew”, as it said above, Patrick was taming Katherina because of a bet he made, Patrick basically wanted the money and asked for a larger amount of cash as the bet went along. In the play Petruchio was planning to marry Katherine because of the amount of money she and her family owned, but he made it seemed that he was really in love with her in the beginning when he met Baptista. Before Petruchio went to meet Baptista & Katherine, he was talking to Hortensio & Grumio on planning to marry Katherine because of wealth & other stuff, in the middle of that conversation Hortensio offered to go with him to meet Baptista since the rule of marrying Bianca (Katherine’s sister) was she was not allowed to marry anyone until Katherine found a man first and married him, so Hortensio wanted to go with Petruchio tp approach that moment he had after Hortensio asks Baptista to be with his daughter,
There are two major types of marriages in the world, arranged and love marriages. An arranged marriage is when a partner for one of the individuals is chosen by their family, and no love is usually involved. A love marriage on the other hand is when two individuals choose to marry each other because of the love they share for each other. A successful marriage is when both individuals can love, care, trust, and are happy with each other even through the ups and downs. Even though arranged marriages have their pros such as lower suicide and teen pregnancy rates, love marriages are more successful than arranged marriages because the individuals actually love each other from the start, there is the freedom of choosing their own spouse, and there
Personally, I think Of Mice and Men is a novel that should be read by everyone because it is genuine and compassionate novel that takes interest in the lives of workers during the Depression Era. Not only does it highlight the power and powerlessness of the workers but also their humanity. The novel revealed what made the workers like everyone else and what made them different. There were, and still are, many controversies surrounding Steinbeck 's works, but what is more interesting and entertaining then a good controversy to participate in. We should use Steinbeck 's novels as a reminders of power play that takes place in our day to day life.
