On one hand, Margot is fashionable and presents herself well. Furthermore, she is “kept” by her husband in a state of luxurious affluence. Ironically, she is not “well-kept” by her husband at all, as she freely and unapologetically commits adultery. Her marriage to Francis Macomber is obviously not a happy one, but she refuses to divorce him because of his money, but Francis cannot divorce her because of her beauty. Margot is delighted when Francis runs from the lion; because she thinks it would give her more psychological control over him.
Estella is also introduced in this chapter and believes she is better than Pip: “he is a common labouring boy!” When Pip talks about Estella he says: “I think she is very pretty… I think she is very insulting.” This shows she is cruel and a snob as she thinks Pip is less of a person than she is because he is poor, which engages the reader because they know that Pip has fallen in love with her but Miss Havisham has brought up Estella to have a hatred of men and the working class because of her own prejudice against them. Language is used to engage the reader in chapter 8. When Pip first sees Miss Havisham he says: “the strangest lady I have ever seen”. The
However he is still unhappy, not until Daisy leaves Tom. Gatsby’s striving for the American Dream has left him vulnerable to the corruption of the upper class and has decided upon his death. Daisy is Gatsby’s biggest dream, he believes that if he could win her back he will find his true happiness. However Daisy is not willing to leave her husband because of his status in the upper class society. Daisy as well as Jordan are described as innocent and pure throughout the first couple chapters of the novel – “ They were both in white, and their dresses were rippling and fluttering…”.
She is cunning, resourceful, and brave. She definitely does not fit into the passive role that has been given to the more popular heroines. As in many fairy tales, the beautiful daughter is basically given away as if she is an object to a man who wants to marry her. Of course the girl’s father approves of the suitor because he appears rich, but the girl is not as impressed. She, “did not like him as much as a bride should like her bridegroom,” (Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm).
He even has the nerve to say, “I suppose the latest thing is to sit back and let Mr Nobody from Nowhere make love to your wife...you can count me out...” (124) Daisy is portrayed to be an innocent character yet the author shows us her dishonesty when she gives her heart to whoever will give her more attention. She is more in love with herself then either man. It doesn’t make a difference to her who she hurts, as long as she is happy and the center of attention. (127) Fitzgerald shows the lower class as bleak and portrays his lower class characters as pale and sick. An example of this is Myrtle, who wanted someone rich, no matter who he was.
For instance, Mr Collins long, pompous speeches help the reader to realise his character within the novel and how he is a person who is full of pride in himself (which is one of the themes of the novel). Chapter 19 also contains authorial intervention. The authorial intervention in this chapter helps to not only tell the story but commentates the dialogue of the characters “she could not use the short pause he allowed in any attempt to stop him farther, and he continued.” The authorial intervention seems to show Austen’s annoyance towards Mr Collins who seems to constantly talk and helps make the reader sympathise with Elizabeth for being on the other end of his constant speeches. In all, through Austen’s use of the third
Who never knew getting there can be a difficult task. Daisy was a beautiful young woman who stole all the men hearts, including Jay Gatsby. Daisy represents love, giving love and being loved. From her elegance to her innocent actions, men were glued to her like a boy stuck to the television. But Daisy was a very picky girl.
The Warrior of the Heart In Edmond Rostand’s play, Cyrano de Bergerac, one personality stands above the rest; the bravery and honor he shows certainly makes him deserving to have such a play named after him. Cyrano de Bergerac resembles the “prince charming” that would grace the pages of any fairy tale story, save for one insecurity: his nose. Although it is taught that outward appearances mean nothing in the face of inner strength and personality, Cyrano finds himself unworthy¾only for sake of his nose¾to be loved by Roxane, the beautiful and intellectual woman of his childhood. It is to be the city of love, as many call Paris, yet Cyrano stands alone, his silent love burning beneath his breast while on the outside, he is the perfect friend to Roxane. In the fantastical world that is Cyrano de Bergerac, there exists the type of hero that has been lost in the modern world.
However the reality that daisy has loved more than just Gatsby crushed him since he had the illusion that she only ever loved him. It is clear that even if she loves Gatsby due to Tom’s social statues and old money daisy will not be leaving him. Although Gatsby considers daisy to be the most perfect women he has ever met, it becomes clear toward the end of the novel that daisy is a selfish woman who only cares about herself. This is shown in chapter seven when daisy hits myrtle with Gatsby’s car and does not stop or slow down the car. That night Gatsby, still in love with daisy, waits for her “all night if necessary” (Fitzgerald, pg.
