The American Dream is known to most as the pursuit of wealth and success through hard work. In the first paragraph of the passage, Fitzgerald describes his own idea of the American Dream. Sitting on the beach Nick thinks of the land “that flowered once for Dutch sailor’s eyes – a fresh, green breast of the new world”(180) The use of the words “fresh” and “green” create the image of a bountiful land, a new frontier to be explored. This new world represents a land of opportunity and possibility for the settlers. Fitzgerald uses this positive description to show the basis of the American dream; where it originated and what it once meant.
8.Explain the irony in Frankenstein's actions Even after Victor’s mother dies, and she wished for him to take care of the family and to wed Elizabeth, Victor spends his time in science and neglects his family, shutting off contact for 2 years and not returning home until 6 years later. A bigger show of irony is Frankenstein’s constant return to isolation. Even after becoming somewhat mentally insane, Henry restores his friend and rehabilitates him back to his previous health. Although not fully recovered, Victor returns home and decides not to tell his family, but rather go back into nature for more isolation, He did not learn from his actions and after the monster pays him a visit, Frankenstein continues his mission in isolation. (Takes place in chapter 9 and 10) 9.What does the death of William symbolize?
For example, the green light represents Gatsby's future for him and Daisy to be together. The green light is the most important symbol of the book because it has a meaning for many things. It also was interpreting the American Dream and money. Gatsby lived a poor life when he was younger and being in his situation now made him want to impress business and famous people, even Daisy. The first technique is used in chapter 10: Is That A Symbol?
At that time, the green light becomes bleak because Gatsby is holding Daisy, it means he already reaches something so the green light is now just a normal thing for him. Next, the green light is also represents Gatsby’s powerful lure of success or money. “ And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.”(Fitzgerald 180) Now Gatsby is died, his business, mansion, money and social positions are all lost.
Nick still sees the class in him he believes he has that “natural decencies” that most classy rich folk have lost due to their sight of money. 3. “we shook hands and I started away. Just before I reached the hedge I remember something and turned around. “they’re a rotten crowd”, I shouted across the lawn “you’re worth the whole damn bunch put together”.” ch.8 Analysis: Nick uses the word “worth” during the conversation with Gatsby.
Gene is in denial of his friend’s death. The only way for Gene to change is for him to accept his friend’s death. Gene enters the war with Brinker which shows he is moving on from his life in Devon and from Finny’s death, and while he leaves he, “[leaves] the door ajar for the first time…My schooling was over” (203).

His parties had everything one could ever imagine in one place, except for him, and most people left the party “without having met Gatsby at all” (Fitzgerald 45). Many of the guests did not find it odd that the host was never around, but this piece of information is quite significant in supporting Gatsby’s motif in throwing the party in the first place. The reason why Gatsby was never around and mingling with his guests was because he was feverishly surveying the crowd for Daisy’s radiant face to appear, but, unfortunately, it never did. In addition, Nick Carraway, Daisy’s cousin, just so happened to be invited to one of Gatsby’s great parties even though “people were not invited-they went there” (45). If people did not get invited to Mr. Gatsby’s parties, then why was Nick?
In the 1910s and 1920s, red-green traffic lights had first begun to be installed in the United States. In relation to those traffic lights, the symbol of the green light in Fitzgerald’s novel means “go”. In the context of the plot, it represents Gatsby 's desire to "go" after his dreams. Gatsby starts to become successful and sees wealth as a false God. He uses this as his ego to be with Daisy.
That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth mainly” (5). From the beginning we know that Huck is the narrator and Mr. Mark Twain is the author and that it is all right if you didn’t read the other novel. In doing so we feel as though a little boy is giving us his story, as it should be. This story will be the true story narrated by Huck Finn unfiltered. Huck for instance learns that “Moses had been dead” He therefore decides that he “ didn’t care no more about him…[because he] don’t take no stock in dead people” (6).
Most of their decisions are based off personal benefit. The Great Gatsby contains rhetorical queues, such as logos, ethos, and pathos, that validate that the pursuit of “The American Dream” transforms society into greedy, heartless people. At this time, people only thought about social status because that determined who you partied with and how much money you had. Since World War I caused such a disruption in the world, it could easily be said that is why people developed this type of mentality. “Real riches are the riches possessed inside,” which is a characteristic that all of these people in West Egg
Gatsby thinks once he gets Daisy, their future would be complete and everything would fall into place. The green light at the end of Daisy 's dock is symbolic for the American Dream, where America was seen as a place that is known for fresh chances to succeed with boundless conceivable outcomes which could be acquired by boldness and diligent work, and Gatsby 's fantasy to rehash the past and be brought together with Daisy. Also, the green light on the doc is the object Gatsby wants but it continues to move farther and farther away like the American Dream that is unachievable. Gatsby tries to chase Daisy his entire life, he finally realizes that they will never be together. This is shown when Nick
Patterson observed that in The Great Gatsby, Gatsby was well-known and had hundreds of friends from across the state, but it did not matter because none of them showed up to his funeral after his murder. In The Wolfe of West Egg, instead of the main character being murdered, Wolfe decides confront his past and tell everyone the truth, including Daisy. After he explains that he is not as wealthy as he made himself out to be, Daisy came out to him and told him that it would not have worked out anyway. Devastated, Wolfe turned to his “friends” but soon found out that they had only been his friend for his money and his social status. He went on various talk shows and talked about why he lied and why he changed his story so many times.
