Tom Buchanan is a very rich man, who lives in a big mention in West Egg. ‘“His family was enormously wealthy even in college his freedom with money was a matter for reproach—“’(6). This quotation is referring that Tom comes from a wealthy family.. Daisy marries Tom because of his money. It shows that she wants to get her success easily. In other words, she takes it for granted.
He believed every lady loved him, which shows he is not shy when it comes to sharing his thoughts. However, not all the ladies love him, he just thinks too much of himself. Benedick also assumes that he is too good for anyone and there is no lady good for him, and therefore he cannot have any lady, and says he never will. It also demonstrates that Beatrice and Benedick have a fiery relationship based on the childish bickery. Shakespeare portrays a rude and independent character of Benedick.
However Tom is able to enjoy spending money left and right knowing the he acquired it through inheritance while Jay struggles to acquire his wealth by any means possible.

They viewed it as they were going to be heroes and a victory was on its way; and no men wanted to miss the action. War made people, men and women, feel very nationalistic for their country, thus making them eager to contribute as much as they could to the war effort. Some men felt war was going to be a “great adventure” and gave “the war an ideal and almost romantic character”. All of Europe also helped romanticized the war and heroism because the people no
It is very reliable as Catherine would have had no reason to lie and would have an accurate impression of Henry VII as she was close to him. Because of this, Henry VIII tried to be different from his father to win over his people and to be known as a better king. Henry VIII was a renaissance king. He did not care about saving money and being in control all of the time. Henry VIII liked to have fun.
Christian sees a kind, sincere, and an exceptionally gorgeous Roxane and immediately falls in love with her at first sight. Though Christian’s love for Roxane may not be very deep or complex like Cyrano’s, it is still genuine love unlike De Guiche’s “love” for Roxane. I perceive Christian as being a sincere and thoughtful man that has no wit or eloquence when it comes to confessing his love for Roxane; so much so he requires the help of Cyrano to speak for him, literally. The scenes that Christian and Roxane share are comedic and at the same time very tragic. It is very unfortunate because Christian is so sincere for his love of Roxane, but he is also so
Tom used his money in every way he could to impress the people around him. I think the way they got their money reflects in both Tom and Gatsby’s attitudes. Tom is from “old money” meaning he was born into a wealthy family and inherited it. Because of this, Tom is very shallow and has a rude personality. He does not care about other people as long as it does not affect him.
The Reeve, who was a wealthy owner of a large estate, spoke firmly, “Fellow Haberdasher, Carpenter, Dyer and Carpet-Maker, we are the low workers of this society. This is our chance, our one opportunity, for us to redeem our roles in society as noble men, men of status and power. This journey could be the opening to a new life for us!” The Haberdasher, Carpenter, Dyer and Carpet-Maker all drank merrily in agreement as they daydreamed of the day when they would be praised. They dreamed of the riches they would come across and the glory of their lives. The luxury they had always wanted now came into plain sight.
Erik Hernal WRT 105 Professor Dorholt 9/15/14 Go For That Big Tip I used to believe that waiters/waitresses were just bad actors. You know, the typical smile and greet for the sake of a big tip. How they would go around from table to table, saying the same joke, complimenting what everyone was wearing that night, and simply going through the motions. I despised it. I assumed that because their profession was based on deceit and dishonesty, that they themselves were liars and cold-hearted individuals.
It is easy to assume that Sammy is sometimes disrespectful to his parents from how he refers to the adults at the store. Sammy views the adults as “old, ugly, mean and stupid.” (Race) and it is evident by the comments he makes about them. Sammy also proves to be very judgmental of people. He judges the leader of the three girls when he said “she was the queen” (Updike 310) after seeing her in the lead of the others three girls. Sammy also judges the social class of “Queenie” by her voice and the herring snacks that she was buying.
