The loss of his father was the major life event that has impacted negatively his life. H.G never received treatment for his ADHD and possible learning disability. As a result of his life stressors he was not able to continue a healthy development. One can say that Maslow’s pyramid is from its very base lacking all the foundations in the case of H.G. “His physiological needs were met at a very basic level; the same could be said about his sense of safety and belonging as well as his esteem needs.” (Mandich, 2015, p. 42).
Daisy is incapable of giving him the new dream he really wants. This is when he loses Daisy. When Gatsby is not satisfied with his original goal, “He gave that up, and only the dead dream fought on as the afternoon slipped away, trying to touch what was no longer tangible, struggling unhappily, undespairingly, toward that lost voice across the room” (Fitzgerald 134). His asking for too much leaves him longing for Daisy’s affection. Fitzgerald makes Daisy’s love for Gatsby a sparkling jewel beyond the reach of Gatsby’s fingertips (Kuehl).

She never discussed her struggles to maintain everything by herself to Art. In fact, she could never properly explain her love for him, which causes Art to believe that she’s avoiding him. “In all these years we’ve been together”...”I don’t think I know an important part of you. You keep secrets inside of you. You hide”…“Why do you keep pushing me away?” (Tan 388).
In the Crucible, Arthur Miller uses the characterization of Elizabeth Proctor to portray that once a person’s trust is broken, it can never be gained back fully. For example, when John Proctor came home to his wife, Elizabeth, he “gets up, goes to her, kisses her. She receives it.” (48) Miller uses this as indirect characterization, as Elizabeth only receives his kiss instead of kissing her husband back. She knows that he had an affair with Abigail, so Elizabeth still does not trust him completely. Elizabeth’s lack of trust in Proctor creates tension in the marriage and they no longer engage in conversation, they just argue with each other.
Andres Sackmann Ms. Katherine Muniz World Literature 5/14/2015 Lost in Paris Non-comprehended, lost young men and women thrown into a world that is no longer relevant to them; a generation of disappointed expatriates that were trying to live a normal life (according to social standards), when all their values had been clouded and their certainties were gone. “You are all a lost generation,” Hemingway quotes Gertrude Stein in the epigraph of one of his most famous novels The Sun Also Rises. When you hear his name, and those of other authors such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, and John Dos Passos, lost wouldn’t be the first term you’d use to describe him, (considering his huge success) but he certainly was; they all were. After World War I, this group of young American authors disillusioned with society, horrified with what they’d seen and experienced, rose.
