She creates her own reality with these works of fiction, which puts a barrier between her and actual reality. She ends the list of quotes by saying “That a young woman in love always looks “like Patience on a monument ‘Smiling at Grief’” (18). This portrays Catherine’s tendency to shape the words to her liking, regardless of what the actual meaning is behind the text. She shows a lack of understanding of the metaphors and language, yet she simultaneously over thinks the work by taking it and applying it to her own life. This creates a superficial image for her character because she picks out only the parts of books that she likes without taking into consideration the surrounding text and deeper meaning, as she does throughout the book.
Beatrice is the main character, in the book Insurgent Series by Veronica Roth, Beatrice was trying to figure out how she was going to confess what she has done. Beatrice is Divergent, she has different traits and emotions compared to other people in the society. She was in Candor, a courtroom where she can let her anger out and no one can judge her for what she has done, especially from the ones she loves. When the attention was pointed to her, she was scared to tell the full story about what was bothering her. Beatrice thought to herself, “Safe places, where confessing that I shot one of my best friends would be easy, where I would not be afraid of the way that Tobias will look at me when he finds out what I did.” This quote shows that people shouldn’t hold secrets in, but to let it out even how bad the secret is.
In the beginning of the book, we can see that Gatsby is the one who is grasping for the light. However, as now Gatsby is dead, Nick visits the porch and looks across the water. Green light will still exist because Gatsby is not the only one who always try hard to reach dreams. It applies to the era of the whole book (1920s), and to us. People during the 1920s had the dream to become rich from the “American dream”, and we too, will also have dreams we would like to
The light is described as dimly discernible and comes from faraway places. This mystery underscores the fact that the green light is a symbol which also reveals American’s longing for their American dream. Although the American dream seems quite untouchable, people still eager for it. When Gatsby finally meet Daisy again, "If it wasn't for the mist we could see your home across the bay," said he. "You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock.”(Fitzgerald 121) In this time, Gatsby met Daisy that he admires day and night.
Most evidently, the green light was the dominant symbol for hope. In a literary analysis, Uses of symbols and colors in The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author gathered seventeen examples of green symbolism; nine of which are symbols for hope (Saakashvili). The green light was mentioned five times, and holds the theme of the book in place. At the end of the novel, Nick shares that “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us” (Fitzgerald 180). Gatsby held optimism and hope for his desire for Daisy, but was cut off by the reality of death.
Hope is presented through the form of imagery and symbolism throughout the text which is quickly introduced at the end of Chapter 1 where Nick Carraway catches Jay Gatsby staring out towards East Egg, just were Daisy and tom lived, “I could have sworn he was trembling. Involuntary I glanced seaward - and distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock”. (pg. 25). The Green Light in the novel represents Gatsby’s dreams and aspirations in hope of his future, in fact, it is Daisy, in which it is so close yet so far to achieve.
There was a lot of pressure from the community surrounding her to join those who are ‘saved’ which were those that had faith in Jesus Christ, jauntily she ignored everyone around her and as a woman, persevered in what she believed. She was the type of individual that spent time in her room and had very minimal acquaintances that influenced her writing such as Benjamin Franklin Newton, a family friend. The reasoning behind why her literature is still read till today is because people relate to her hidden messages and extravagant ways of bringing forward social issues through emotional literature. In addition, the language used is in a way where it emotionally affected those in the modern era too, and post-modern era, within five to six stanzas and compressed verses she influenced the 21st century society to continue enlighten young individuals in our society that being unique and having different views is okay. Most of Dickson’s work was republished in vocabulary that common society could understand, as her poetry was written in the romantic era, it contained emotions that were unique and filled with content that made sense in her unique form and her way of inputting syntax in all her writing.
Her personal secrets that she was forced to keep for herself, are finally revealed after decades of suppression. As the story is narrated by the protagonist 's nephew, Pak Ch 'angsu, the readers recollect the symbolisms given by the author to guide them to the protagonist 's secret that she has kept by herself
“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that 's no matter – to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther... And one fine morning – So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” (9. 171-172) Gatsby always dreamed of the sweet future with Daisy. To achieve the future, he built his house near by Daisy, so he could see the
For example, While talking to Nick, Gatsby says “ I’m Going to fix everything just the way it was before... She’ll see”( Fitzgerald pg.110). The quote shows that Gatsby is so naive to Daisy’s feelings and life but no matter what he will still try to rewind the clock. In addition, a symbol is a Green Light that is used to represents Daisy and the past that Daisy and Gatsby had. For example, when Nick saw Gatsby on his dock, he said “He stretched out his arms toward the dark water... I could have sworn he was trembling, involuntarily, I glanced seaward and distinguished nothing except a single green light..”(Fitzgerald pg.
In addition, the author has a very unique writing style. The author includes many character descriptions and Latin words that resemble the main character’s culture. In conclusion, Flowers in the Sky by Joseph Lynn is a wonderful book for teenage girls that are looking for something relatable with excellent
