Unhappy Relationships Relationships are complicated. “The Great Gatsby”, where people leave each other, cheat on each other, and they lie and then they die, exemplifies this idea. Some do stay together throughout the book but in the end its not what they wanted. Fitzgeralds theme of unhappy relationships in The Great Gatsby is shped by Gatsby, Diasy, and Tom in order to convey the idea that no one ended up together happy because of everyone interfering with everyone elses relationships. Gatsby chases his dream of being with Daisy, but it was never fullfilled.
There is no legitimate reason to make anyone touch their own coffin, other to be cruel, mean, and spiteful. That was exactly what the narrator did, and if his brother would not touch it he was going to leave him there. At that point in the story Doodle did not know how to walk so he would not have been able to get down at all. The narrator is also needlessly cruel to Doodle when Hurst writes “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened. I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us” (360).
The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride. After Doodle dies alone in the storm, the reader grasps the “true love” the narrator had for him, which he never expressed toward his younger brother. In the closing paragraph, the narrator reveals his “true love” that was hidden inside him, “ I began to weep, and the tear-blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar. ‘Doodle!’ I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (604).
Love is paired with violence, hope with despair, and desire with fear and angst. Morrison uses the color red to capture the vividness of these emotions and showcase the polarizing effects slavery has on one’s state of mind. Yet, there is a common theme throughout the novel that as terrible as these emotions might seem, embracing the past is a necessary step to move on to the future. So only when Sethe and Paul D embrace the color red – and recognize that their past is part of their identity – can they fully begin a new life at 124 and have hope for a better
In post apocalyptic times there is no right or wrong anymore, no laws and cultural norms no longer apply. Loss of innocence has affected Finn most deeply in the novel as he has had to grow and develop in maturity, in order to survive., "I want to scream and yell… I want to say it 's not fair. I want to say we 're only kids and we shouldn 't have to deal with this stuff, that there should be more adults like ray to help us." Finn expresses his emotions here to show how cruel post-apocalyptic times are. He tells us how as a teenager he has to do things that no 16-year-old should have to go through and that there should be adults like Ray to
In the book, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the speaker, Nick, describe many complex attitudes towards hope by showing the complexity of Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship to express this theme. Nick uses literary devices such as similes, metaphors, and juxtaposition to portray to the audience how Gatsby and Daisy’s love may seem tangible to them, but in reality, they are worlds apart. Nick uses similes to have the audience understand that Gatsby and Daisy are constantly hoping for a better life, and that utopian life to them is to be together. “It had seemed as close as a star to the moon”(Fitzgerald 94). This simile suggests that Gatsby and Daisy’s love and happy ending looks close in that moment, but in reality, it is far away.
The Role of Art in “The Fall of the House of Usher Art can be expressed within writing pieces, poems and short stories in various types of forms. Edgar Allen Poe uses music as a form of art to help the main character Roderick try to cope with his unstable state of mind. Roderick experiences moral dilemmas and music serves to distort his feelings unintentionally. Simiraily, the ancient greek philosopher Aristotle believed that for a balance of life one needs to encounter the bad experiences in order to feel better and move on to better times. Furthermore, his belief was focused that one needs to participate in negative emotions to relieve the pain that he or she feels.
The author also illustrated the level of stressed Charlie had by making Charlie throw the book instead of just being mad at himself. Furthermore, the author demonstrates how frustrated Charlie is by using a small situation such as book and blowing it up with Charlie’s reaction. Even though Charlie knew this would happen, he still got mad, because Charlie has set a bar that is too high for him due to the fact he had the surgery. Overall, Charlie has been battling with himself and trying to come to terms with the fact that he will no longer be smart yet, in a much more stressful and traumatic experience, supporting the fact that Charlie was better off before the

We can’t, we MUST not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it’s all we have.” (3). She’s reminding everyone that their lives are not like a fire that once extinguished, the smoke is the only direction they can follow. Instead, Keegan says, “But let us get one thing straight: the best years of our lives are not behind us” showing that their lives are like matches and with each stroke it lights the way onto a new path and new opportunities of self-exploration
Two of those columns have the exact same width and the same colour that are red. The other column is white and wider because it has the maple leaf on the center of the flag. The way I view the Canadian flag is that is simple and easy to remember. The colours capture the attention of the citizen as well as people from other countries. The red portrays Canada as a country that has the determination, strength, power and love for everyone because Canada has shown these values to the world and its citizen.
