The relationship quickly switches stages unexpectedly to the deterioration stage. This stage is “characterized by a weakening of the bonds… you view the future with your partner more negatively,” (DeVito 227). This occurs when Gatsby begins pressuring Daisy into leaving Tom. This scares Daisy and causes the bonds between the two to weaken because she is quickly reminded by Tom about the reasons she loves him. This is especially shown in this scene when Daisy says, “Even alone I can’t say I never loved Tom,” (Fitzgerald 133).

In All the Bright Places, Theodore Finch’s internal conflict leads to self destruction and ultimately to the emotional ruin of Violet, his girlfriend and character opposite. At the start, their opposite traits prove the scientific principle of opposing polarities being drawn to each other: positives attract negatives and vice-versa, but as the novel progresses it becomes apparent that their differences actually push them away from each other rather than bring them together. Opposite character personalities may attract each other, but essentially they create tension and problems. From the moment Violet first meets Finch, something about him captures her attention. She finds herself finally admitting to him, “You know what I like about you,
$ Their relationship has created a classic arch in television and film. Many forms of media have taken this “love-hate” relationship and have recreated it. A prime example of this can be found in the film Bringing up Baby (1938). In this film, Dr. David Huxley (Cary Grant) begins the film by hating the annoying and clumsy Susan Vance (Kathrine Hepburn). However, despite the events of the film, that get Huxley in huge trouble and physical pain, the film ends with Huxley confessing his love for Vance, and, much like Benedick and Beatrice, they end up together happily in
Baggini further states, “Without the passion, it is mere dedication. Without nurturing, even the best can wither and die.” Romeo feels like he has nothing to live for because his love does not love him back. Romeo feels like nothing if he is not loved back because he feels that he needs to be nurtured and loved back. So I do not believe that Romeo is acting like the typical person would. He is so distraught in his own interpretation of love that he cannot see it for what it truly is and it is confusing and hurting
Her internal struggle is revealed in this instant when her hedonistic desires cause her to feel conflicted. Mrs. Buchanan tends to act extremely selfish, especially during the moments when she cannot resist the temptation of hedonism. When Daisy impatiently awaits Gatsby’s return from war, “there [is] a quality of nervous despair in [her] letters” (151). Daisy’s egocentric nature ultimately causes her to believe that the world revolves around herself. Her tragic downfall is made clear when she decides to marry Mr. Buchanan and pursue old wealth.
Fitzgerald uses The Great Gatsby to say that the American Dream is never truly attainable as there are always going to be unintended ups and downs, as seen through Gatsby’s failures and shortcomings. Throughout the book, many characters say that Gatsby was a charming and dashing person, but most of all, a mysterious one, these are the qualities that often attract an American woman. Therefore, it is quite surprising that a person like Gatsby, who possess these qualities, is unsuccessful in obtaining true love, showing the limitations of the American Dream. Gatsby was determined that Daisy was the love of his life. Their relationship started before Gatsby went to war, yet would become complicated when Gatsby stays away for a long time; Gatsby’s reasoning was that he wanted to become rich enough to support Daisy so they can be together forever.
Lee doesn’t show examples of irony throughout the majority of his poem. However when it comes to the last time he expresses it in fullforce. The speaker understands that he is lonely for he no longer has his father. He uses that loneliness and turns it around on himself: “What more could I, a young man, want” (Lee 23). The speaker is clearly upset about losing his father but uses irony to cover it up.
Earlier in the book, Bernard gives us the impression that he’s just a frustrated, lonely man with the desire to become close to Lenina and to share intellectual conversations with her. But, after so much time of being isolated, drowning within his own frustration and the lack of understanding from everyone around him, Bernard he's, in a way, given up on the idea of having a relationship just as humans would if they weren't controlled in such a society. Bernard is fed up with being alone, and as the Alpha-plus man he is, he won’t settle for being a lonely man anymore. Bernard takes the “savage” and uses him to escalate his fame and social standings. Bernard even begins to boast about how he’s had pleasurable encounters with women: “And I had six last week,” he confided to Helmholtz Watson.
The speaker utilizes this in order to detail his reaction towards such a miniscule event of being noticed by this girl. He does this with hyperboles such as, “She/ Named my name. I thought I would wake up dead.” This quote is saying that the small act of this girl knowing his name makes him feel overwhelmed by the emotion of love. Hyperboles show the exaggeration of what he was feeling, due to his infatuation for her, by stating that he feels as if he was going to die from the excitement. The speaker’s reaction exemplifies how the small act of being recognized by one’s “love” can cause a rush of emotions.

Daisy cries because the man who once looked at her like she was a person and indispensable is now trying to buy her, objectifying her once more in a way she never expected him to. Daisy loves the beauty of the shirts but hates what they mean for her. She has exhausted her ability to rebel against a world that expects her to be demeaned in this way, and cannot articulate her feelings. She justifies her tears with the values of materialism that have been forced upon her, seeing how she is treated as an object herself. The objectification of Daisy is complete when Gatsby tells Nick, “Her voice is full of money,” (127) towards the end of the novel.
They are truly in love with each other but not enough because at the end of the book in room 101 Winston begs the party in saying "Not me, do it to Julia."

He hates the party, has vague about its honesty and
He told her those things in a way that frightened her—that made it look as if I was some kind of cheap sharper. And the result was she hardly knew what she was saying’ ” (152). Gatsby takes the blame because he still believed that Daisy was going to leave Tom for him- he had visioned himself with this outcome for so long that it was hard to detach himself from this concept. In taking the blame in hopes for a future with Daisy and his accomplished dreams, he infuriates the wrong people who will then make sure that Gatsby never gets to see this dream even possibly come
1. The point I find to be the most crucial to the plot in Chapter 1 is the Buchanan’s blatant unhappiness. Tom is obviously unhappy in his married life because, not only is he restless in the sense that he moves frequently, but he also is having an open affair. Daisy is also obviously unhappy because of the way she so readily opened up to Nick, whom she did not know well despite their familial relation, and in the way she interacted with Tom. Even if I had not read this story before, I would have picked up on the fact that this singular point would be a catalyst to the rest of the plot.
