Contradiction is a sort of theme throughout The Great Gatsby, as all the way through the novel the glamorous, high class side of NYC in the 1920s is seemingly glorified by all those who are entwined in it, yet through the affair of Tom Buchanan, the death of Myrtle and Gatsby himself as well as his affair with Daisy, the reader is shown the corrupting ways of this immoral, careless and unsympathetic society which is masked by dazzling wealth and superficial romance. Another example of a huge contradiction shown in the novel is the fact that Gatsby’s wealthy party guests all believed that happiness rested in money, but it did not. In Gatsby’s case, his source of happiness was love, and while the wealthier minority took everything including love for granted, Gatsby didn’t. However, his faith in love proved to be his demise; the novel shows that though love is the source of life, in this instance it has killed a man in his quest to find it. Fitzgerald’s use of contradictions adds to the air of mystery by, again, forcing the reader to question the novel constantly; why?
How Jay Gatsby is Morally Ambiguous and its Significance In fictional literature, morally ambiguous characters cannot be characterized as purely good or purely evil. These complex characters play pivotal roles in many acclaimed novels, like the main character Jay Gatsby in F.S. Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. In this novel, the author portrays Gatsby as a morally ambiguous character whose pure desire for Daisy’s love may have progressively changed into immoral desires. Gatsby’s moral ambiguity helps express one of the novel’s critical themes: the corrupt American Dream of the 1920s, a false ideal that influenced people to futilely pursue dreams of wealth and status.

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic twentieth-century story of Jay Gatsby's quest for Daisy Buchanan, examines and critiques Gatsby's particular vision of the 1920's American Dream. Written in 1925, the novel serves as a bridge between World War I and the Great Depression of the early 1930's. Although Fitzgerald was an avid participant in the stereotypical "Roaring Twenties" lifestyle of wild partying and bootleg liquor, he was also an astute critic of his time period. The Great Gatsby certainly serves more to detail society's failure to fulfill its potential than it does to glamorize Fitzgerald's "Jazz Age." Fitzgerald's social insight in The Great Gatsby focuses on a select group: priviliged young people between the ages of 20 and 30.
Jake Ryan Mr. Lynch ENC102 February 9, 2015 The Cask of Amontillado Literary Analysis “The Cask of Amontillado,” a thrilling and dark tale with underlying and discreet truths about not only the story itself but about revenge in the world humans pretend to prosper in. Deep within musky catacombs a unique and somewhat disturbing event takes place between two men who have a hidden rival between each other yet hide their emotion behind bedazzled hats and sparkling wines. The rivalry between the two is far from simple, they disguise hatred behind complements such as “How remarkably well you are looking to-day” (101) that the reader can almost hear the sarcastic tone crying from the pages. Not only are truths hidden from the characters within the story, but the finale of the story is shown slightly and hinted at throughout the reading to the audience in both spoken and unspoken words. The short story “The Cask of Amontillado,” written by Edgar Allen Poe in 1846, implements immensely detailed scenery, thick character relations, and foreshadows, all of which excite the audience into drawing their own inferences and wanting more of this vengeful tale.
