Gatsby did it because he didn’t want Daisy to get into any trouble with the police or Tom. Gatsby thought that Tom would be upset at Daisy for killing his mistress, so he was thinking that Tom would put his hands on Daisy later that night. In the quote, I found that Gatsby later that night “ Put his hands in his coat pockets and turned back eagerly to his scrutiny of the house.. ”. (pg. 145).
The Friar thought that marrying the two kids of the feuding houses would help put an end to their parents' fight, "Thy love did read by rote, that could not spell. But come young waverer, come go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love." (Act 2). In this quote, the Friar is thinking that if this couple is to be wed, then the feuding families will put down their swords and pick up champagne bottles instead.
Under his false identity, he wins the love of Daisy Buchanan, otherwise known as Gatsby’s dream. But there’s a catch: Daisy is married. Gatsby is so hungry for her love that he won’t stop at anything. He enlists his friend Nick Carraway as his right-hand man, and at Gatsby’s request, Nick “called up Daisy…and invited her to come to tea. 'Don't bring Tom,' [Nick] warned her.
Huck and Jim both decide to flee from terrible situation and they run into one another at Jackson’s Island. At first Jim is freaked out by Huck because he believes that Huck had been killed and has come back to haunt him. Soon he realizes that Huck is real and reveals his secret, after convincing Huck to promise not to tell, about him running away. Huck is shocked to hear the truth and knows that “people would call [him] a low down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum—but that don’t make no difference” (37) because he promised to keep his word. Huck believes, and rightfully so, that he will be hated if he keeps quiet, showing the hold racism has over Huck.
His longing for repeating the past has taken over his logical way of thinking giving him the idea that repeating the past is possible. “‘Daisy, that’s all over now,’ he said earnestly. ‘It doesn 't matter any more. Just tell him the truth - that you never loved I 'm - and it’s all wiped out forever.’”(The Great Gatsby page 132) This quote proves that Gatsby has tried with everything he has to erase the past. He believes that if he can get her to admit that she has never loved Tom, the past has been erased.
This is all Trip’s fault. But like a thousand times before, I can’t make myself say it. I let the proof that was all over my body fade away”(Breaking Beautiful 316). Allie doesn’t want to tell anybody about the abuse because she doesn’t want to speak badly about the “golden boy” of the town and it gives the town’s people a reason for her to be the killer of Trip. As Jaycee talks to Agent Herrera about Rachel’s death, Jaycee thinks, “I think about telling him everything, about the text, about the old house; maybe if I tell him, this
To Tom, the East Egg is superior. Gatsby ultimately becomes enemies with Tom because he is a bootlegger and makes his relationship with Daisy all too clear to see. He accepts an insincere dinner invitation which angers Tom even more because he begins to realize there is something going on between Gatsby and his wife. This aggressive and unfriendly relationship between Gatsby and Tom proves that Gatsby is foolish because he does not think of the consequences for his actions in the long run if Tom finds out. He made little to no effort to hide it and Daisy does not help.
Tom gives Daisy more of a foundation of a certain lifestyle than Gatsby, however, Tom doesn’t give Daisy the attention she wants, henceforth she looks for it in Gatsby and has him believing that she genuinely loves him. “[Gatsby] put his hands in the coat pockets and turned back eagerly to the house, as though my presence marred the sacredness of the vigil. So I walked away and left him standing there in the moonlight-watching over nothing” (Fitzgerald 153). It confirms that Gatsby will never truly get Daisy; she will never leave Tom for him. Since, Gatsby is blind to the fact that she does not love him the way he loves her, he believes that Daisy will leave Tom for him.
Gatsby is never really joyous in this book because all he wants is to repeat the past. “‘I wouldn’t ask too much of her,’ I ventured. ‘You can’t repeat the past.’ ‘Can’t repeat the past?’ he cried incredulously. ‘Why of course you can!’” (Fitzgerald 110). Daisy is never content because she’s conflicted between the comfort of Tom and the adventure of Gatsby.
Finny did forgive Gene for jouncing the limb and not being there for him when he fell down the staircase in Devon like a good friend would have. Gene would grieve for a long time without getting Finny’s forgiveness, for he felt very guilty. He got Finny’s remission before he passed away sadly. “Now I knew that there never was and never could have been any rivalry between us” (59). Gene realizes that the accusations in his mind about Finny trying to sabotage him were false.
The person to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Friar Laurence because he kept their secret and helped them be together. He was also the one who married them in hopes of ending the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. He also made many mistakes that caused his plan for Romeo and Juliet to go wrong. He trusted someone to deliver a note of great importance to Romeo, gave potion to Juliet, and he fled Juliet’s tomb instead of trying to help her. All of these mistakes would not have happened if Friar thought out his plan a little more.
A conversation had sprung up about Daisy by Gatsby over to Nick, who told Gatsby that the past couldn’t be repeated because times have changed. “Cant repeat the past?...Why of course you can old sport! See she must tell Tom that she never loved him” (The Great Gatsby). Although Gatsby had already been living “The American Dream” going from rags to riches, he wanted Daisy to be included into his life again and not feel that sense of loneliness anymore. He revealed that the only reason why he threw such big parties was to catch Daisy’s attention all
In the novel on “page 134 of chapter 8 says” “It does not matter any more. Just tell him the truth, that you never loved him, and it is all wiped out forever.” Gatsby is showing that he really does not care about the argument he just wanted Daisy to himself like he hoped.That quote is saying that all he asked was one thing, but one thing is too much to ask for. Young people are dying and they are really careless about it. Maybe if people start caring about others the world will change. In today 's society, the world is still the same.
