To Gatsby it is more than the money, it is the ambition to get what he desires, while to Daisy, it only resembles what she wants in life,
She wanted to express to her precious son to take on any opportunity that the universe threw at him for he is not the only one with admirable qualities. She urged him to carry on head strong no matter the circumstances and by providing all this support and love she sent him off with confidence and motivation to bring his mother “justice, fortitude, and every good virtue which can adorn a good citizen” (Adams). to continue making her
They both love Daisy in their own way and do not want to lose her. Gatsby states, “Both of us loved each other all that time” (Fitzgerald 138). Gatsby wants Daisy to tell Tom she never loved him so that they can be together, but she cannot because it would not be true. Daisy says to Gatsby, “I did love him once-but I loved you too”(Fitzgerald 140). Daisy used to love both of them but chooses Tom because she is used to life with Tom and does not change.
The green light is represented as Gatsby's ideal goals for his life. The light also serves as a guide such as a marker for Gatsby. Gatsby's dream was to be able to marry Daisy and live happily ever after. The green light can also be a symbol for the American Dream, which was the idea that everyone could come to America, work hard, and become rich and wealthy. The Valley of the Ashes is an area that divides the two parts of New York, the East Egg and West Egg.
The novel Miracle in the Andes similarly depicts a tale of love and friendship, however, in a more meaningful way. Both of the main characters, Westley and Nando respectively, strive forward towards their goals with the help of their friends and because of an intense love they feel for someone dear
He feels like he has to manage to the American Dream to accomplish his dreams, Daisy. Daisy was already rich and Gatsby wanted to get her back to give her anything she wanted. The green light where Daisy lived was a sign for Gatsby it was his goal or dream. It was a symbol representing Gatsby’s dream of having Daisy. Trying not live the fantasy life where he would never achieve it.
The novel describes how his love for Daisy never dies, and is willing to do anything to bring her back into his life. His only dream and hope in life is to be with Daisy. The resemblance of the green light and the horizon, reinforces the idea that people continue to strive for a better opportunity, no matter the circumstances underlying. In the first novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God, the main character Janie has always had a dream to have freedom from the beginning, even though she grows up learning that she needs to have a man to depend on.
I mean if you tell old Phoebe something she knows exactly what the hell you’re talking about” (105). Holden loves his sister very much and has never said that she was a phony. She always gave him some hope in the world and he was most likely hanging onto his life using that hope. On one hand, I agree that Holden would have used Phoebe as a reason to live. But, on the other hand, I still insist that what he was going through would have become too much for him to handle.
Anne weakly addresses how death will affect her love for her husband by saying that while “we live, in love let’s so persever/ That when we live no more we may live ever.” Her intentions were to spend the rest of her life loving her husband since it was limited by death. Their love was going to be their legacy as she indicated through the phrase, “we may live ever.” Elizabeth’s view of her love for Robert completely demolishes Anne’s as she says that “if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.”
Earlier in the book, after he professes his love for her, he promises, “For you, and for any dear to you, I would do anything” (117). Carton keeps his promise by later giving his life to save Darnay’s. His plans are foreshadowed when he whispers, “A life you love” (260) to Lucie and kisses her while she is unconcious. He is referring to Darnay’s life, whom he plans to save by trading places with him since they are doppelgangers. Carton loves Lucie dearly and cannot stand to see her in so much pain because of Darnay’s impending death.
Throughout the novel we see the importance of the green light. The green light represented the: ”unattainable dream," the "dream [that] must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it”. It was that thing that was so close, yet so far at the same time. In the last page of the novel the narrator shares with us that Gatsby believed in the green light, it eluded him. That green light represented his hope, his dreams, because Daisy Buchanan was all of that to him and more.
This metaphor is an in depth description of Gatsby’s imagination. His dreams exemplifies the hope he has to achieve his greatest desire: to once again be with his true love. The reference to the rock indicates a solid foundation on which he builds his visions and ideals. However, this “rock” is described as on top of a fantasy, a “fairy’s wing.” This comes to show that Gatsby truly believes that his dreams are part of his reality and is convinced that he is able to be with Daisy Buchanan once again.
In the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jay Gatsby takes his chances at the American dream in the twentieth century and ends up falling drastically short. Gatsby throws extravagant parties and tries to live a lavish lifestyle hoping to keep up and eventually fall in love with a rich girl named Daisy. Daisy and Gatsby have everything they want in each other pre-war, but once Gatsby comes home his expectations of Daisy fall short. Gatsby spends all of his waking hours pursuing his dream to be with Daisy, however, she does not live up to his standard he had of her before. Both Gatsby and Daisy have changed from when they felt a connection before, and maintaining that connection may not be meant to be.
Tracking the light is the karma people receive. All of the characters in the story had good karma;. Lights are good events that happen to characters. Silas’s gold is one of the most recognizable lights in the story; Some other ones are Silas and baby Eppie, Godfrey and Nancy, Silas and older Eppie, Squire cast and Aron and Eppie. These events were all lights to each of the characters.
American dream is what everyone strives for, but as people try to pursue the dream, it starts crumbling down and full of corruptness. In the novel The Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, a young man name Nick narrated the story for a mysterious character who is wealthy name Gatsby. Every character lives a luxurious life of the American dream, but in reality, there is no American dream as it is not obtainable. Gatsby has a goal to love Daisy, but he is stuck in time where he is proceeding the old Daisy as the current Daisy. Gatsby would look outside out from the dock and see a green light on the Daisy side, which is on the East Egg.
