Over the last couple of days in class we have discussed F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story “Winter Dreams”. This short story explores several themes such as reality vs idealism and over expectations. These themes communicates through the use of various literary devices such as irony, symbolism, allegories and imagery. Through the use of these literary devices each character is brought to life and given its own type of personality.

This quote helps to provide some background on how Dexter is given a idiosyncratic persona.

There is a distinguished balance in the relationship of women and men and it is visible in coexisting and procreating beyond themselves. In making decisions that are influenced by mistakes sometimes, one person gets the short end of the stick.

Masculine and feminine attributes have been visible in literature from the beginning of language, with the response of love and forcing one’s self to put aside: “me” for “you.” Jig is well aware of herself yet wants to keep her man so much that she is willing to hurt herself physically and mentally. It is normal for the woman of any story to have to listen and decide with the permission of the man, consequently not doing what she feels is right. The undefined pressure and inclusivity of men without women is an understood thank you for life, but “what I want is what it will be.” Women of all time can compare themselves to Ernest Hemingway’s writings and the way it is written is not shy of the rules that are still played by today. With prevalent changes such as women’s rights, and abortion rights there is still barrier of equality that makes for a familiar type of religion practiced by all humans. It is

This narrative mode takes the form of an interior monologue within the character, reflecting the immediate occurrence of ideas in his mind and highlighting his thought process. The reader witnesses very little change in the setting of the novel, as all significant parts take place amidst the small
