Anaya uses water to represent them and further the readers’ understanding of their personalities. One of the first instances that uses water to describe a character is when we are first introduced to Tony’s father. Gabriel tells Tony, “And it is the blood of the Marez to be wild, like the ocean from which they take their name, and the spaces of the llano that have become their home” (41). Gabriel uses his water-related last name to describe himself. He is invested in the fact that he is wild and free like the ocean.
Once they finished speaking about the beauty of the ocean, the author changes its tone, from awestruck to resigned. The speaker greatly enjoys seeing the ocean and all of its beautiful characteristics however, knows that at some point they will be dead, gone, departed; they are aware that when it happens, they won’t be able to see these beautiful forces of nature. Frankly, the speaker accepts it, they understand that it will all be okay in the end
Love is not as merciful to others, though. The Great Gatsby teaches that money cannot buy love. Jay Gatsby is trapped in this utterly obsessive kind of love that make makes him unable to basically do anything except think about Daisy nonstop. No money or material possessions will entice her, but that sure does not stop Gatsby from trying to win her over. The narrator, Nick Carraway reveals to the reader that Gatsby “hadn’t once ceased looking at Daisy, and I think he revalued everything in his house according to the measure of response it drew from her well-loved eyes.
‘100 $Bill’ and ‘Young and Beautiful’ both spoke for Gatsby strongly as they were played in a manner to present him in separate lights and represented both his hopes and his fears. His disregard for riches is easily expressed in the song 100 $ Bill as he pays no attention to the amount he spends in the secret bar or on his extravagant parties, it also shows how he takes business as a pastime not a necessity. However the song Young and Beautiful, brings up how he wants Daisy to love him even when he doesn’t have the riches anymore, which is both a hope and a fear as he is unsure of how far she will allow their ‘affair’ to go. The song also brings up bringing her love to heaven with her, which can be said for Gatsby but does Daisy really want to go with him. He seems to bypasses her wants there as well as in the confessing of who Daisy really loves and we never see him ask her.
If Roderigo exposed Iago when he said he would, a lot of misfortune would not have occurred. Therefore, Roderigo demonstrates the dark side of human nature by being jealous and unintelligent. To conclude, the dark side of human nature is demonstrated by Iago who is selfish, Brabantio who is doubtful, and Roderigo who lacks cleverness. William Shakespeare’s Othello shows how easy it is to let emotions take over one’s mind.
She isn’t falling in love with either of them. She is in love with a collaboration, a pure fantasy. If she had married Christian, how could she live with him, knowing that he could never be the one that she had loved before? While Cyrano has many faults, it must be said that he did have his honorable moments.
Not having a mouth represents many thing such as : “At times, dreaming of a faceless person can be a reflection of how confused you are about yourself and your direction in life. You might also have this feeling that other people fail to appreciate you.” This could mean as his confusion rises about what it is zelda thinks he has done, as she would claim he was a common customer at the house of infidelity. As far as the ears go, it represents his inability to hear zelda. He cannot hear her denial, her pain,her love.
Violet’s Father has passed away; but through flashbacks, we observe the strain in their relationship. They love each other, but she has never forgiven him for disfiguring her. She even wonders if he did it intentionally in order to hold onto her for himself. Secondly, Violet has a conflict with herself between the reality
This could possibly link back to Eddie’s relationship with Catherine and how he perhaps he wants to keep her to himself as he feels that Rodolpho is taking control. Equally Eddie doesn’t feel comfortable when Rodolpho speaks to him as he says, “he gives me the heeby jeebies”. This response to Beatrice reveals his deeply embedded discomfort at Rodolpho’s flamboyant acts, which could infer that Eddie could even be homophobic. Although this can be argued as Eddie could be hiding his own sexual ambiguity, possibly having strong homosexual urges he couldn’t deal with. Evidence of this can be found as he describes Rodolpho to Alfieri, “You could kiss him he was so sweet”, and subsequently Eddie also kisses Rodolpho.
Because of this, she’s expected to love him no matter what. The reasons stated within the passage would make no sense to any ordinary person, and would not be recognized as reasons to love someone. “She loved him for the way he sat loosely in a chair, for the way he came in a door, or moved slowly across the room with long strides. She loved the intent, far look in his eyes when they rested on her, the funny shape of the mouth”(pg 2). In order to justify her servitude to him, she unconsciously attempted to look for valid reasons to love him, which didn’t exist, which resulted in these inadequate
Until Clarisse inadvertently forces him to accept the truth, Montag denies his unhappiness to himself as well as to everyone else. He fervently denies the suggestion that he is not in love with anyone, claiming without hesitation that he is “very much in love” with Mildred (Bradbury 22). In light of the emotionally vacant and meaningless interactions between Montag and Mildred, the assertion that such a relationship is ‘love’ seems absurd. Montag never stops to wonder whether the things he says are true or not; there is no reflection of himself in his words. Montag’s defensive, almost automatic, responses are characteristic of a man who voices only what he thinks he is supposed to feel, not what he truly feels.
Gatsby’s life is very questionable, but his thoughts are not all realistic. He begins to lose his admirable qualities as he does not ask Daisy how she feels about him or any situation at hand, but rather is so wrapped up in winning her over that he does not realize he is losing her by doing so. His wealthy lifestyle and trying to act as Tom does causes him to corrupt himself and the things that Daisy loves about him. Gatsby wants Daisy to leave her own life behind but that is unreasonable. This
