Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and The Jelly Bean both use Irony, Foreshadowing, and symbolism to describe how many people’s endeavor to achieve great wealth and class drove people’s decisions in the 1920s. I. Main Idea for 1st Body Paragraph: Irony A. Literary element use and effect in novel 1. Nick’s relationship to Gatsby is an example of irony because Nick tells the story about Gatsby, but he doesn’t like him.
Macbeth loses his heroism and becomes fear-stricken when, undeservingly, he acquires certain knowledge about a few unrelated events of his future life. Having tasted “certainty” of the irrational world, Macbeth becomes more and more troubled by the uncertainties of the rational world and his fear is aggravated and heroism disappears more and more. He turns out to be a divided personality as he lives in one world and abides by another. His reason and imagination don’t work as parts of a unified sensibility. Imagination makes him more frightened and less heroic.
“Presently I heard a…although I chuckled at heart” (Oates & Ed, 1992). By declaring that he is able to understand what is inside the head of another human being the protagonist loses once again his credibility. Besides the fact that the narrator seems to sympathize with the old man he is once more unable to conceive that the eye is a part of the old man’s identity. “The narrator is also helpless about his anxieties and his temperament”(Abu, Madi, & Neimneh, 2013). The narrator seems to lose his temper both by the appearance of the eye “It was open…I grew furious as I gaze upon it” and the sound of the heartbeat “ It increased my fury,…into courage” (Oates & Ed,
Immorality and Deception in The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald exhibits villainous human nature through the main character, Jay Gatsby.

In order to accomplish this, he portrays a lavish lifestyle and makes himself seem like an ideal man: wealthy and wise.
Holden knew Ackley was lying about his summer, so, he called Ackley a phony. In The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger, Holden Caulfield 's perspective on people give the reader a different and unique point of view. What is phoniness?

Therefore, phoniness is someone who doesn 't act as themselves, they deceive people by acting like someone they aren’t, even themselves.
Have you ever wondered what your name may mean? My name, Lakoda, is derived from the Lakota Sioux Tribe of Native Americans. Lakota means “friend, ally”, nevertheless the tribe itself was known as Thithunwan in Teton, that meaning “prairie dwellers”. Many names derive from old sayings, colors, and other things to describe oneself. A name can’t tell you everything about a person, but it may tell you some traits and truths about one.
The use of personification here exaggerates Orsino 's devotion to Olivia which she apparently doesn 't appreciate. He implies his existence expelled a constant love for her that came out with ease due to its surplus, however, Olivia failed to be grateful for such. This idea is further exemplified by his repetitive rhetorical questions reflecting his disbelief. The start of the scene is structured in a stichomythia format which indicates the build up of Orsino 's loss of patience. Shakespeare encorporates this to build momentum as Orsino 's emotions toward Olivia transition into resentment.
It is, thus, a pressuring and life-changing moment. Langston Hughes, the author and narrator of the composition, “Salvation,” is met with a barrage of thought and emotion come deliverance. Langton’s naivete mistook his aunt’s metaphoric description of salvation, and this led to an absence of spiritual epiphany when the time came. Ultimately, this evoked great dismay and skepticism toward his indoctrinated ideology. Langton's failure to understand the nuances of language is thus the cause of him losing faith in the church and
Emphasizing their different values, Nick’s discomfort with meeting Myrtle for the first time showed through in an attempt to distance himself, ‘“Hold on,” I said, “I have to leave you here.” “No you don’t,” interposed Tom quickly. “Myrtle’ll be hurt if you don’t come up to the apartment.” (28). “Well, i’d like to, but----” (28).
As shown in The Great Gatsby, wealth and luxury has shown to result in ethical or moral corruption of one’s self. An example would be Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby: being the two richest men in the novel, they are shown to be corrupted in ways that are not what people expect. While Tom was born into the wealthy life in East Egg, Gatsby was originally a poor man named James Gatz and had to work his way into becoming a wealthy man in West Egg. Tom had strong power and importance in the book and that drew Myrtle out of the Valley of Ashes and she tried to obtain Tom in order to become wealthy. Both men have no regards for the other as displayed in chapter 7.
Fitzgerald condemned the American Dream by showing how even though Gatsby became rich, he was not happy nor did he have a happy life. Tom Buchanan dehumanized Gatsby by how he thought badly of him because he was nouveaux riche. Tom was old money. Nick was also newly rich like Gatsby. He dehumanized the Buchanans in the fact that he thought of them as careless except when it comes to their image or their money.
Tom Buchanan, is the husband of Daisy in F. Scott Fitzgerald The Great Gatsby that has a big lack of morality throughout the book. Tom has a cruel; strong body tone and he lives in East Egg. In the novel, Tom Buchanan takes the role of the antagonist because he prevents Jay Gatsby from living happily ever after. This is in two ways first it's in Gatsby's head which happens throughout most of the book and then by actually denying him from being with Daisy and he also takes actions which lead to Gatsby's death. Tom Buchanan is first introduced as an excellent sportsman but he's wealthy, restless, and cruel, which is a terrible combination.
The parties are ironic in themselves because the at the parties there are huge amounts of infidelity, “the world and its mistress returned to Gatsby’s house, and Gatsby wants Daisy to come to his parties so that they can rekindle their love for each other, “Gatsby’s very careful about his women” thus causing Daisy to commit acts of infidelity in her relationship with Tom (Fitzgerald 65, 77). However, when Daisy finally gets a chance to attend one of Gatsby’s parties and she is not impressed and she feels out of place at the party because she is not used to the lifestyle that Gatsby has. This shows the impossibility of Gatsby ever achieving his dream of being with Daisy because Daisy would never leave Tom for Gatsby because she is so used to
