Daisy is miserable being married to Tom but stays with him anyways cause she is worried what will happen. Also, Jay Gatsby has always loved Daisy Buchanan, and thinks that she will fall for him once she sees how successful he has become. On the other hand Nick doesn’t have much but is happy with what he has and falls in love with a Jordan Baker and doesn’t care if he is rich or not. So in reality it doesn’t matter if you’re rich but if you’re happy. In conclusion, The Great Gatsby is a work of fiction by F. Scott Fitzgerald which includes detailed characters, an exploration of universal themes about money and happiness, and the writings of an author with a very interesting life and influence for his writing.
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. Sometimes, too, he stared around at his possessions in a dazed way, as though in her actual and astounding presence none of it was any longer real” (Fitzgerald 5.112). It is sad that no matter how hard Gatsby tries to win back Daisy, she will not commit to anything. It is for the best, though. They would eventually become miserable if because the only reason they married was because of his money and gifts to her.
He may say to himself, “no more killing, no more life should be taken away, at least from me,” but it is unavoidable. He lost his beloved one. He uses what he adores to kill another one that he loves. This feeling, this emotion, is just too strong to bare that he lost his hope to live, lost his direction to live on. The fact that he died from cancer is a metaphor that signifies he is tired of this life and ready to take off.
Admittedly, Caesar could be considered the tragic hero due to his realization of his wrongdoings when he sees Brutus after being stabbed. However, Caesar never fully accepted responsibility for his actions before he died, unlike Brutus. Brutus’s dying words are, “Caesar, now be still. I killed thee with half so good a will (V.v.50-51).” These words confirm that Brutus recognizes that killing Caesar wasn’t the best course of action. Within these final words, we also see Brutus’s regret for what
There were two lovers from the families who thought they would love each there until the end of time but they both died over the feud and the feud end. While Romeo and Juliet physically committed the acts that ended their own lives, Nurse and Friar Laurence should be blamed for their deaths. Some people think that Romeo and Juliet were to blame because they were too young to know what love is. Romeo and Juliet loved each other and they could not live without each other so they committed suicide. They are too young to know what love means.
Gatsby’s actions, and words demonstrate a clear obsession with Daisy that seems to have no end. In the story, Gatsby is at the first portrayed as a great man, until later the book goes on and his true colors and motives are revealed. As Gatsby invited Tom over to talk, he explains how all he wants is to have Daisy tell Tom that she had never loved him. In response “‘I wouldn’t ask too much of her’” I (Nick) ventured. ‘You can’t repent the past.’ ‘Can’t repeat the past?’ He (Gatsby) cried incredulously.
After many affairs together, Jay and Daisy’s love for each other cannot go unnoticed, even to Daisy’s husband, Tom. The not so Great Gatsby made it clear to Daisy that the only way to really love each other was if she admitted that Tom was not a part of her past, but she just could not say the words he was looking
These perfect portrayals break down there, however, from Tobey Maguire playing Nick Carraway. In the novel, Nick is trying to get his way to the top by befriending all of these wealthy, upper-class people introduced to him by Gatsby. His American Dream, of course, being full of wealth, women, and success. That being said in the movie, Nick is a lovable and sweet character who seems like he could commit no offenses. Not only that but casting Tobey Maguire,seems like the wrong choice as he seemed lifeless and insecure throughout the entire movie.
Losing someone is a tragedy, which is how each of these books end. In The Great Gatsby, Gatsby ends up being killed and his past lover, Daisy, does not bother to visit him or care for his death. Because of this, the readers feel sympathetic towards Gatsby and how heartbroken he must be if he knew that Daisy never even cared about Gatsby and instead only cared for his money. In The Fault in Our Stars, the tragedy of Augustus’s life being taken away by cancer is not only heartbreaking for the readers, but heartbreaking for Hazel. She is left behind with the pain of living without her true love for the rest of the life time she has left.

Abbotson says that when the play was premiered after World War II, in a post-Freudian age, many were not pleased with the play 's ending (50).
