In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby the characters do the same. They look for the special someone or in the case of Jay Gatsby try to get back the girl that got away. However love in the Great Gatsby proves to only be the result of denial and self-deception. “The officer looked at Daisy while she was speaking, in a way that every young girl wants to be looked at some time.” This was one of the last moments Jay Gatsby shared with Daisy before his departure to war. He left here while they were in love with each other and expected everything to stay the same until they met again.
was fifteen and little Mary was ten when their father passed away. No words could be described as to what I was feeling when I have lost him. For me, it was like losing him for the second time and even if the first time was for a short time this time it was different, it was forever until we meet each other in afterlife. Tears, terror and even panic were all the things that ran through my mind as I have thought of Edward gone. I was unable to describe to Mary that her father will no longer into the room and pick her up or even tell her stories at bedtime.
He started growing suspicious and then finally found out that it was Gatsby who she was seeing. Then it was Mr. Wilson, the only difference is that he’s only suspicious. He doesn’t know for a fact that if Myrtle was cheating or with whom she’s cheating with. “I’ve been here too long. I want to get away.
To move forth to the second point, we also come to the idea that Gatsby couldn’t achieve his dream, for he was struggling with the concept of the dream, and we realize this by seeing him trying to love a memory that ceased to exist. As we can be led in, we see in the end of chapter 6 that Gatsby throws a party, but he notices Daisy didn’t like it. As F. Scott Fitzgerald states, “’Can’t repeat the past?’ he cried incredulously ‘why of course you can!’” (116) Nick tells Gatsby (in summarization, this is not how he said it specifically) not to feel bad about the past, because you can’t repeat it. Gatsby, in reply, states the quote previously noted. The significance of this quote is that it displays us the feelings Gatsby has for his memories.
When Gatsby found out that Daisy was married he was heartbroken. As a result he did the thing that most people would when they are obsessed by a person. He tried to steal her away from her husband. Love or not, a person should realize that it is not the best thing to do to steal someone’s wife, especially if the person has a young child. He is so obsessed hat he is willing to break up a family just to have his love.
She tells her father "I know the clouds have already rained" as if to say that it happened and there's nothing anyone can do. Although she does accept it, she takes a lot of her anger out on Trujillo and that's just another way her family influence her into rebellion. Minerva's family completely influenced her to become the person she was. Her great values, dad's arrest, and dad's cheating all got her more involved in the rebellion against Trujillo's evil regime. Minerva Mirabal taught the world something.
You are not at my side and these words may be the only thing that saves me from the guilt. I shall explain myself by recalling the night from the beginning. You and I had been upset with each other. You wanted me to go to Salem and testify against Abigail. I was defensive and unsure.
They met up with these two men. I had no idea who they were, but I didn’t go over there. I knew they weren’t strangers if Jeremy and Lola went with her, and I knew Jeremy would protect her if they were trouble.” “Can you describe these men to me?” “Not really, it was getting dark outside.” Harries nodded, “Where were you between 2 and 4 the night your sister disappeared?” “I was awake with my mom and dad, waiting for my sister to come home.” “Okay. So I was looking up information on Kylee, and it seems that she didn’t exist before 2001. Can you tell me why that is?” “What are you talking about?
Jem and Dill are doing this to find something to do, it is Dill’s last night in Maycomb before he goes back home. Plus they said nobody can see them at night and Atticus would be reading his book. And since it is Jem’s last night, if Boo Radley killed them they would miss school not vacation. 2. Jem says, "Scout, I'm telling' you for the last time, shut your trap or go home--I declare to the Lord you're getting' more like a girl every day!"
