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.
“Dark trees in the landscape of love” by Kao Kalia Yang is reading about the lives of Hmong girls married white men and how their lives are different. Kalia Yang started the story talking about his nephew preference for black trees, not bright trees, showing that all colors of the trees are beautiful not just the bright ones. Then she talks about his husband and when she first saw his husband, she never taught to marry him. Aaron used to hear her given the public speech and one day he sends her an email inviting for breakfast. She accepted for lunch and they met at the Hmong restaurant, but it was just a casual meeting to talk about work.
1). The quote that stood out the most in The Bingo Palace was “We do know that no one gets wise enough to really understand the heart of another, though it is the task of our life to try, we chew the tough skins, we wonder” (Erdrich 6). This quote was important to the novel because it made Lipsha Morrissey realize that he was wise enough to understand and love the heart of another. Lipsha Morrissey believed he could never love anyone till he met Shawnee Ray when he returned to the reservation.
Just like Daisy, Myrtle chooses money over love. She cheats on her husband George with Tom. Myrtle was a woman from the lower class who desired to be a part of the higher class. Tom spoiled Myrtle and gave her the lifestyle she always wanted. She belittles her husband and talk bad about him because he is not at the top of the social ladder where Tom is.
and he had hers and then kisses his foot which was the only part of him not covered by a sheet. Mrs Johnson asked to see Mrs. Kennedy; "She was quite alone. I don’t think I ever saw anybody so much alone in my life. I went up to her, put my arms around her, and said something like 'God help us ' because my feelings for her were too tumultuous to put into words." Mr. Hii received a call from Kennedy 's brother Attorney General Robert Kennedy asking how his brother was.
In chapter six of Catcher in the Rye, he said “I told him he thought he could give the time to anybody he felt like. I told him he didn’t even care if a girl kept all her kings in the back row or not, and the reason he didn't care was because he was a goddam stupid moron.” Caulfield does not see Jane for her beauty, but because of who she is, and what she does, and how they connect with one another. He then continues by saying “You don't even know if her first name is Jane or Jean, ya goddam moron!" During this period going on a date was the first step before marriage, which was an American standard.
She has always been wealthy, and always aspired to be wealthy. She is used to living in luxury, and is dependent on Tom to provide for her. When describing Daisy's voice, Gatsby says, “Her mouth is full of money” (Fitzgerald 120), meaning even her voice sounds like the stereotypical wealthy person’s. Daisy also reveals her hollowness as a person when she says “I hope she’ll be a fool- that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool” (Fitzgerald 17). In this quote, Daisy demonstrates the hollowness of the upper class by hoping her daughter will be a fool instead of a proper young lady.
“I’m sorry m’dear. Boudreaux and I were talking about old times and I simply forgot myself - we should not speak of such things in front of you.” “You were just speaking plenty on the Baroness and her misadventures, now you want to worry of my delicate ears- please, tell me of this ‘pleasure palace’,” I implored. “Is it a house of ill-repute?” I asked bluntly, looking first to one then the other.
No, I do not think Macbeth had ever thought about being king before he ran into the witches. After the encounter with the witches, Macbeth sent a letter to his wife, telling her of the good news. This came as a shock to both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth decided that in order for her husband to become king, they would have to kill King Duncan; however, Macbeth thought King Duncan was a good king and did not deserve to be killed. These thoughts had never crossed their minds before the witches spoke to Macbeth.
Massachusetts, 1692... what an awful time to be alive. Especially for a young, timid girl by the name of Clarabeth. Not exactly the most special of girls, just a hard worker for her family, an all around fair person. Unfortunately, Clarabeth woke from an unpleasant sleep with a start on a gloomy August twilight, to the sound of people shouting and an accused “witch” tied to a stake, crying with the force of a tidal wave, pleading to be let down.
A few times that I lied when I was in trouble. I was around 6-8 years old, really didn’t know what was wrong and wasn’t. I was playing with my younger sister, who’s name is ShyAnn, and I accidently bumped into the table and broke my mother’s favorite coffee mug. She came out around 10 minutes later and saw that there was glass all over the floor. My mother started questioning me and I lied and said my little sister did it.
