When Sally got married she thought that she will escape from her abusive father and finally get her freedom that she had dreamed about before. Little did she know, her husband would be as protective as her father was over her, so eventually she had given up every aspect of her freedom. Looking out of the window was one of her last hopes and pleasures that she had but Sally’s husband didn’t allow her to do that either. Sally says that “She is afraid to go outside without his permission”(Cisneros, page 102). In this vignette, you could tell that Sally’s husband was the one that prevented Sally from having any freedom, which caused Sally to feel like she was trapped in some kind of a
On page 132 Nick makes the observation that it seemed, “she had never, all along,intended doing anything at all.” If she had told Gatsby from the beginning of their relationship that she did love Tom then Gatsby might not have pushed so much with Tom and perhaps the ending would’ve been different. However, she lied and made Gatsby believe it was only him and that she would be with him forever. In the end, If she would’ve said something to Gatsby and not lied about their relationship then The fight wouldn’t have been so mad and she wouldn’t have been so upset while driving and wouldn’t have killed Myrtle which would’ve prevented the whole
She’s already gone’” (112). Mark Fossie thought that everything was going right for him, however he did not realize that Mary Anne would leave him because of the war. He feels desperate because he thought it would be good to bring over Mary Anne when in reality it forced them to split apart and now he has no
Discovering the meaning of friendship or finding out the order of one’s priorities can appear as unimportant tasks, but these activities bring fulfillment to people of all kinds. For example, Janie was extremely naïve when it came to concepts regarding love. She believed that marriage would bring her love eventually. She heard this from her grandmother, but was soon proven wrong as shown by the quote, “She knew now that marriage did not make love.” (Hurston 29). The latter quote is clear evidence that people should not leave it to others to inform them of how certain concepts in life work.
Daisy proves to be easily swayed and shallow from the start, if only Gatsby could have foresaw it before it affected when he returned from war expecting to have Daisy. Before Gatsby left for war, Daisy promised that she would wait for him, however, when Gatsby returned, he found the situation to be different from expected, yet was willing to persuade her to come back to him despite her disloyalty. “Daisy cannot wait for Gatsby to return from war. Since she desires a love which is defined rather than limbo; she quickly accepts her new love in Tom Buchanan. Her decision is to marry Tom” (Marling 7).
However, humans behave in an irrational or rational, depending on a person’s perspective, and because of this they may fall victim to following societal norms over their emotions; which occurs in both Never Let Me Go and Brokeback Mountain. The pressure of society overwhelms the strength of love that is experienced in each relationship. Ennis cannot conquer his fear of what society will view of his and Jack’s relationship. He expresses this fear when he says, “What I’m sayin, Jack, I built a life up in them years…You and me can’t hardly be decent together if what happened back there grabs on us like that. We do that in the wrong place we’ll be dead.
Something of this nature is hard to ever forget and move on from. Daisy evidently thought she could move on by marrying Tom Buchanan, but in Jay’s case, he never lost that spark and love for Daisy. It is possible that this foreshadows Jay and Daisy committing an affair together because of the strength of that past passion when they finally meet again. Due to the emotions that Jay and Daisy shared in the past, they do not think about how their actions concerning their affair will affect those around them, mainly Tom Buchanan. In the following quote we can see how Jay and Daisy had an effect on
Nick in The Great Gatsby personified the dwindling hope of Americans as they transitioned into the depressing Modernist movement. Prior to the war, Daisy had envisaged a life of happiness with Gatsby, but he did not return from the war soon enough and married Tom instead. Wilson's demeanor after Myrtle's death was delusional, unstable, and almost insane, causing him to think it logical to murder Gatsby. No character in The Great Gatsby possessed a candor personality; all of them lied at one point or another. Gatsby felt that every moment away from Daisy was a tribulation, further driving him to find and marry her.
I don 't think he had ever really believed in its existence before.” (Fitzgerald 62). Gatsby had been ignorant of the fact that his love interest, Daisy, had in fact moved on after his departure, and went on to create a family of her own. He was essentially not accepting reality for what it was and living life in denial. Unfortunately, he continued to show signs of hopelessness throughout the novel; “He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: "I never loved you. "… after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house—just as if it were five years ago,” (Fitzgerald 59).
Without the Friar Romeo wouldn't have been pushed to marry Juliet, he most likely would've ended up finding another beautiful girl and fall in love. The Friar and the Nurse were the only people striving for them to be together, but they didn't think about the consequences. They pushed and fought for something that was never meant to be from the start. The Friar had the perfect plan but Friar John couldn't deliver the letter just for the mere fact that he had to go visit a sick friend, but that is Shakespeare for you. At the end of the book the Friar had confessed his plan to the prince.
