Tom Buchanan is an arrogant, controlling man, who does what he wants not considering about how his actions influence those around him. Tom is also the earliest person to use physical violence in the book, striking Myrtle in a fit of rage when she would not stop shouting Daisy 's name. "Some time toward midnight Tom Buchanan and Mrs. Wilson stood face to face discussing, in impassioned voices, whether Mrs. Wilson had any right to mention Daisy 's name. "Daisy! Daisy!
There, conflict arises between Tom and Gatsby, and their world of fantasy becomes a world of rivalry and strife. In the midst of conflict, Myrtle Wilson is struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle. Nick later learns this vehicle to have been driven by Daisy; however, Gatsby shoulders the blame. Nick’s morality is tried one last time, as he must decide whether or not to let Gatsby take the blame for such a horrible incident. Nick ultimately decides to leave Gatsby despite the previous knowledge he acquired.
Ella Kaye screwed morality as she disguised her inner satan and acted to love Dan Cody to capture all the wealth that he settled on. Ella Kaye wanted to benefit from Cody’s money, which was why she pretended to love him and became his mistress. Once she got what she was looking for she killed Dan Cody, which Jay Gatsby suspected from the beginning. The right thing for her to do was to love Dan Cody for who he truly was instead of loving his
Wilson’s POV: As I approached Gatsby’s estate, I felt God’s eyes following my every movement, beckoning me to avenge my beloved wife who was ripped away from me. I was going to take her somewhere safe, where she would no longer be pursued by other men, but I failed her, I failed Myrtle. The monster Gatsby may have thought that he could escape from his sins, stealing my wife and then throwing her away like garbage, but God saw everything, and he could not run forever. His inconsiderate actions have angered our Father, who did not approve of such a manipulative man with revolting hauteur. Gatsby lived like a king in his castle, protected by his wealth, and oblivious to the consequences of his actions.
¨We in the audience can see the implication that eludes them (this is where our expectations concerning roads enter the equation), so much so that we may want to scream at them to walk them to walk up the road to a new life (Foster 236).¨ We didn't expect Tom to cheat on his wife, Daisy after he so called claimed he loved her. But what is really ironic, during the end of the book, Tom goes to Wilson's garage to get some gas for the car. Wilson explains to Tom how he thinks his wife Myrtle is having an affair but does not know who it is. As Daisy was driving, she accidentally killed Myrtle and it is insane because Daisy did not know Tom was cheating on her with Myrtle as well. It shows how dishonest and cruel people be.
Despite this awful scene their affair continuous due to the fact that Myrtle is obsessed with the plan of escaping from her marriage. The another messed up relationship is between Gatsby and Daisy. Like Myrtle, Gatsby wants to become a part of the high social class and escape from the name tag of “New Money”. Gatsby falls in love with Daisy and her wealth that she represents. He becomes obsessed with her in a level that he would cover up and take full responsibility for all of her misbehavers.
Gatsby takes the blame for Myrtle’s death, by doing this, whether he knows or not, he is choosing his own death. By taking the blame for the death of Myrtle, Gatsby shows the hope he still has for Daisy to come back to him. Each of these quotes show Gatsby looking reality in the eye and denying it, because he is blinded by the love he has
In F Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby The most despicable person in the book would be Daisy Buchanan. While the most admirable person would be Nick Carraway. Reasons being why Daisy is the most despicable, she hit someone with a car and left her. It's hard to say who's the most admirable person but id have to say Nick.
In the story it says, “ ‘I know, I know. You’ve said that a hundred times,’ she snapped. ‘What did you say?’ He asked, pushing his newspaper aside.” Maria’s conflict connects to the theme of the story because she is being ungrateful towards her father and wants to grow up too fast.
In my opinion, Tom is most responsible for Gatsby’s death. I believe that Tom is most responsible because Tom forgot to tell George that Daisy was the driver of Gatsby’s car the night Myrtle was hit by it. Tom forgot to tell George that because him and Daisy were plotting this out. I could tell something was up when Nick refers that “Tom and Daisy talking in the house(146). I also think that Daisy is a little bit responsible because she took on some bad morals when she hit Myrtle because she could have stopped the car after she hit Myrtle.
“That was where the pain came from. That where all the hurt came from, but he will kill them all, he would-” (Stephen King Dust Jacket.) Cujo is a novel about a dog that contracts rabies from a bat-which causes him to massacre innocent people. Cujo makes a statement about people or the world because of how real the situation actually is, when it comes to pets, broken cars, and relationships. The story is about the Trenton family, Vic, Donna, and their six year old son Tad, who go to get their car repaired.
Choice, diversity, and feelings could change the Giver community and make it a more positive place. Choice would make the Giver community more positive. One detail that supports this answer on page 94, “That was before we went to sameness. Flesh is all the same.” This detail shows choice is needed because if you don’t choose what you want you can’t create personality and you fall into sameness.
With the use of the Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald is saying people should not be afraid to pursue their dreams and try to obtain what they want in life. It doesn’t matter what your background is or how difficult that goal may seem. The goal you have can be possible if you have the courage to pursue it. People can come up with an enormous amount of interpretations of what the Great Gatsby’s theme is, and this is one of my interpretations because of everything an important character had to endure to be where he wanted in life. The Great Gatsby is a really well known book, and this story took place in the 1920s(Also known as The Jazz age and The Roaring Twenties).
Also, this Alexie’s quote shows that the thing that can influence the most in the truth is memory. He also wants the audience to think that if their memory does not work, they will not know the truth about something that happened. O’Brien says “What seems to happen becomes its own happening, and had to be told that way” (559). This quote supports Alexie’s idea that truth is what you remember from an episode. People always tend to tell the story in the way that it seemed to happen to them.
and I also are similar in how we get in social situations. To us it is easier to sit back and listen to everyone else and keep to ourselves. It’s not always easy to talk to new people or to make new friends. The Perks of Being a Wallflower helps point out that there is nothing wrong with you if you are that kind of person. This movie also touches on things like self-harm, sex, love, friends, losing people, and self-acceptance.
