The Great Gatsby is very flashy with all its outrageous commotion during parties but in Midnight in Paris there seems to be a more realistic representation of what was actually going on during parties and speakeasies during the 20s. Lighting plays a role in both films. Gatsby always seems to see the green flashing light at the dock of daisy’s house. Anytime Gil is in the modern time with his wife their seems to be a glossy gold filter that just doesn’t look right but when he goes into the past the lighting just really makes the environment stand out and feel interesting. The lighting here is used to show that Gil belongs in the past or that the past is a better time in general.
In A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings, author Gabriel Garcia Marquez weaves the natural with the supernatural in a startling yet fortifying way. It abandons us to ask ourselves what our reaction would on the off chance that we were stood up to with the supernatural right outside our entryway. By mixing the commonplace and repulsive parts of life with the marvelous, Marquez successfully utilizes an imaginative tone and interesting style to make a story that passes on components of everyday life, yet supersedes it. His story welcomes us, as readers, to look a bit closer at the occasions in our lives and decide how we are reacting to the ordinary we confront. He motivates us to take a second look at the not-exactly ordinary occasions that whisper a more profound which means.
The lyrics that Twenty-One Pilots use are straightforward, but it’s the message underneath that makes it special. By doing this, it helps the audience connect more to the song. The duo would talk about how they “used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face saying ‘Wake up you need to make money.’” This shows the transition of how people are careless when they are young but as they grow up, it all changes. When people get older the government is breathing down their necks demanding that they do taxes and their family members are also demanding that they get jobs. The duo uses lines that connect to the audience as these situations happen to everyone at a point in their life.
He starts by buying a house across the bay from her home. When he buys the home the man who had been living there before him had just died.

While the 5 of them are at the Buchanan’s mansion, the tone that is created by the hot weather is really heated and a fight is just detained because they decide to go to town, after Daisy “had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw” (Fitzgerald 119). And although Tom tries to control himself, a dramatic fight is already in sight. The mood seems to be very hostile as they drive to New York City with Daisy and Jay in Tom’s coupe and Jordan, Nick and Tom in Gatsby’s car, because Tom tries to catch up with Daisy and Gatsby in order to prevent her from running away from him, so the drive seems like a race. When they are in the Plaza, the tension seems very high and after Tom implies “incredulously” (Fitzgerald 130) that he knows what’s going on between Gatsby and Daisy, Fitzgerald shows that the mood changes, because the tension seems to be at its highest which is shown by Nick saying that everyone wanted to laugh at the ridiculousness of Tom’s monologue. When Buchanan tells Daisy that Gatsby is a bootlegger, everyone seems to be very quiet and almost stolid.

Rhea’s eagerness to adulthood is represented by how or whenever she interacts with Lou and Jocelyn.

Also, it is a similar situation with Gatsby as his life seems to restart as well as he attempts to regain Daisy’s love for him. Joy and fun come along with the chaos that summer brings. All the parties Gatsby throws in his house are not your typical house party. “People were not invited--they just went there.

In the story it mentions the ideas of Fate and Free will and how some believe in one than the other. For example Billy Believes in fate since he has no control of his life, even though he can travel through it. As mentioned in the novel by a Tralfamadorian, “Only on Earth is there any talk on free will.” After reading this quote it revealed to me the meaning of the novel, but I touch on this later.
