Monsieur Lantin and his lady had the perfect marriage, falling deeper in love with one another by each passing day. The rising theme of irony, however, proves that appearance can overshadow reality. It creates tension between an intended meaning and a literal statement, used as a form of dry humour to provoke the reader. Throughout his short story, The False Gems, Guy de Maupassant emphasizes several forms of irony to display the universal theme of deviousness. Monsieur Lantin’s lady was thought to be an idyllic wife, but readers soon found out that the love between the married was an illusion.
sexuality. Millay expresses that love is not an object nor does it help when it falls within her sonnet “ love is not all”. She writes “ Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink/ And rise and sink and rise and sink again; /Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,” (“Love is not all” 3-5). She realizes that love has its difficulties and one cannot force love. However Millay realizes that love is something she would cherish wouldn 't trade for anything in the world.
She is physically coated in the laborious, middle class life she lives. Alongside this is the fact that Daisy leaves and crushes Gatsby’s hope.

She would rather live life in a brash and carefree manner than call herself spiritual or noble. “I’m damned bad for a religious atmosphere. I’ve the wrong type of face.” (Hemingway, 56).

In fact, while engaged to Mike, she had slept with Brett and Pedro, and had a desire to run away with Pedro, one of her countless lovers.

The circumstances surrounding Gatsby and Daisy 's relationship kept them eternally apart. For Daisy to have been with Gatsby would have been forbidden, due to the fact that she was married. That very concept of their love being forbidden, also made it all the more intense, for the idea of having a prohibited love, like William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, made it all the more desirable. Gatsby was remembering back five years to when Daisy was not married and they were together: His heart began to beat faster as Daisy 's white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his
Gil could also be a parallel to Gatsby because they both find love where it could never happen. Gatsby with the married Daisy who also has a child that he does not acknowledge, and Gil with adriana who is from a whole different time period than he is from. The second group of characters are the rich, like Inez and her parents as they parallel the Buchanans because they all are rich and care little about others but themselves. For example Inez says to Gil when he confronts her about cheating that “its whatever get over it”. She doesn't care about Gil or his feelings and she brushes the conversation off like it is nothing.
Humbert Humbert and his Lolita, Dolores Haze, are incomparable characters that toy with the reader’s emotions and are the basis of this story. While questioning the author’s intention in creating such a wretched tale, I discovered that Vladimir Nabokov, himself states that the novel has no intended moral, it was just something he had to get off his chest. And that is perhaps the best evaluation I can offer, one should read Lolita not for is sexual and emotional rawness, the beautiful prose, or a good and honest cry, but because it is book without an intended moral. Books like these have no gray zone, no middle ground, the reader is forced to love it or hate

Also, Juliet is immature in relationships because she says, “I will not fail; 'tis twenty years till then” (2.2.171).

Readers see in this excerpt that Juliet is dramatic which shows everyone that she is juvenile.
As more is revealed about Gatsby in the Plaza it looks less and less likely that Daisy is going to leave Tom for Gatsby. Daisy isn 't able to convince Tom or anyone else at the Plaza that she loves Gatsby. So much so that Tom even insists that Gatsby ride home with Daisy. After Myrtle’s death Gatsby still hoped for Daisy to come back for him, it never happens and Daisy and Tom end up running away from the mess they made in New York.

Clara and Pedro’s daughter was falling in love with a man that her father did not like. She did not care at all about what her parents think of her and her new lover. When her father found out about who she was dating he said, “‘Who is it? Tell me who it is or I’ll kill you!’ said Esteban. ‘I’ll never tell,’ she sobbed,” (299).
After spending years married to Tom, she has become used to looking into the material items. When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92). The reason Daisy is so upset is because she acknowledges that she could have had multiple materialistic gains whist being married to Gatsby in a love-filled relationship. When she sees what she could have had her mirage of a perfect life begins to crumble. But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently.
