Gatsby doesn’t achieve his wealth through honest hard work. He does it by bootlegging and crime. This story is full of lying and cheating. Gatsby chased the American Dream even though it was abused and destroyed. The American Dream all the characters are chasing is ruined by reality of life.
The scandal they’ve caused was of epic proportions. Its repercussions can still be felt today. There are many reasons why people spy against their own country. Sometimes, greed is the motivation as with the CIA agent Aldrich Ames. Sometimes, sexual liaisons expose them to a blackmail, eventually landing them in jail such as the French ambassador Maurice Dejean who had extramarital affairs.
Because of Pearl's perceptiveness, she is able to catch Dimmesdale's hypocrisy every possible opportunity. Throughout the book she seems to be able to point out the obvious flaws in Dimmesdale’s reasoning but even still he continued to suffer by his own hand until the end. In this instance she was able to catch the Reverend in one of his many weak moments; he answers broadly as an excuse for his bad judgment. We see here why the Reverend is remaining silent towards Boston: he is petrified of people finding out that he's imperfect. “And so it is!” said the child [Pearl].
The King: • He was semi-barbaric. • Ruthless and bloodthirsty, the King was also partly compassionate. • This set him up for great internal conflict between good and evil. The Princess: • Much like her father, she was semi barbaric. • Violating her father’s social code, she fell in love with one of his subjects.
The novel is a story of sordid deception, adultery and murder, how far do you agree? I agree the novel is full of deception; the glamorous life of the east masks the corruption underneath just like many characters hide behind disguises. The main example is Gatsby himself, he is one big illusion who covers his true identity for starters by changing his name, and they say every name has a meaning so he is already hiding his true self away as if he wants to be someone else. Gatsby creates an appearance of wealth and status, which hides his poor past and criminal deeds which contrast the respected and clever person he appears to be. This is all in order to grasp what he really wants, daisy, she is being lied to which is ironic when she should be the one he is most loyal to if he wants to pursue a relationship with her.
The theme of violent tendencies flow through both Poe and Raymond’s novels, they are both used similarly and differently as well as for different effects. Also with different techniques. In The Big Sleep Marlowe and Carmen Sternwood have a love hate relationship “I didn’t like her anymore.” Throughout chapter 31 they go from being friendly to each other to Carmen trying to shoot Marlowe to Marlowe tending to Carmen while she was unwell. Marlowe seems to genuinly care for Carmen "i caught her as she fell". He takes extra precautions to make sure she is ok "took all my strength to do it".
His plan of action was almost complete if he was able to murder Cassio. Iago’s motives are told throughout the entire play such as, seeking revenge due to the fact that Othello was given the title of lieutenant, throwing out accusations of him sleeping with his wife. In the end he is handed over to the torturers where he finally is quiet and stops giving reasons. Critic Robert Heilman (1956) states “lago’s case is too good; as a hunter of motives has bagged more than the legal limit” (pg.33). Othello is susceptible to lago’s evil.
Iago has many rather theoretical reasons for his revenge, one of which being his failure to receive the spot of lieutenant, and the other being that he “suspect[s] the lusty Moor” of sleeping with his wife, Emilia. Iago, being a very jealous and icy man sees that the only way to be “even’d with him” is to go “wife for wife”. Iago’s revenge is a carefully plotted strategy that involves many intricate details and occurrences. This extract tells the reader a lot about Iago’s plan that has previously only been assumed. Iago is so emotionally detached that he claims his ‘love’ for Desdemona exists predominantly “to diet [his] revenge”.
