This subtly hints about how Cher is spoiled and from an exceedingly rich family which Cher is very keen to deny. The characters Frank Churchill and Christian are obvious parallels because Emma and Cher were in love with them. In the end Frank ended up being engaged to Jane Fairfax and Christian was gay. In clueless Josh takes an instant dislike to Christian just like the book Emma. Josh decalares he will go to the party to keep an eye on Cher.
He had an enormous body with toned muscles and he knew he was a stronger man than others like Nick. “That’s what I get for marrying a brute of a man, a great, big, hulking physical specimen of a –‘(Fitzgerald: 1950, 17). Mr. Buchanan is married to Daisy but at the same time is having an affair with a lady named Myrtle Wilson who is also married. As the story goes on, Tom finds out that his wife is having an affair with Gatsby and gets outraged. Tom does not like the fact that his wife might leave him and starts to compete against Gatsby for the love of Daisy.
He is an example of old money, and because he is so wealthy he decides that he can break all the rules and do whatever he pleases, like cheating on his wife. “‘Why -' she said hesitantly, ‘Tom's got some woman in New York. '” (19). Materialism has gotten to Tom's head and he believes just because he has so much wealth he can buy happiness with anything that he pleases. The last character, Gatsby, shows both materialism and spirituality.
On the outside, The Great Gatsby seems to be a story about a twisted love affair and nothing else. In reality, though, Fitzgerald is subliminally showing the many changes happening during the 1920s socially, and how it affected the idea of the “American Dream.” In The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays the strives for wealth and status, which defined the American Dream during the roaring 20s, and which continues to be defined as a desire for wealth, success, and status today. The Great Gatsby was written soon after World War II. After World War II, there was a great economic boom which left many people suddenly rich, people referred to as “new money.” There quickly came to be a distinct difference between the “new money” group of people and people who were previously wealthy. What used to be “the pursuit of happiness” turned into a pursuit of money and greed.
This is seen as disrespectful from Hamlets point of view throughout the play, as he never accepts Claudius to be a replacement to his father, and never really approves of his mother’s re-marriage. Hamlet also decides ‘to put an antic disposition on’, which was to give the impression that he was in a descent to madness. This is related to when Ophelia’s father Polonius warned her to stay away from Hamlet, and that she may be the possible cause of his mental incapacity. Hamlets develops this madness until the point that the reader doesn’t know what is the initial cause of it, and if it is real or false. Hamlet decided to take on the challenge of avenging his father’s murder, as the ghost instructed, as said ‘This time is out of joint.
The neglect from her husband causes Daisy to wilt, much like the flower if it were treated harshly. By the end of the novel, Tom’s careless behavior drives her to kill Myrtle, Tom’s mistress. Gatsby, who was in the car with her even “tried to make her stop, but she couldn’t” (145). Obviously Daisy, being a competent driver, could have kept herself from swerving into Myrtle and killing her. Fitzgerald is showing his
In a monologue, Emilia says: “I am glad I have found this napkin: / … My wayward husband hath a hundred times / Woo'd me to steal it; / … I'll have the work ta'en out, / And give't Iago: what he will do with it / Heaven knows, not I; / I nothing but to please his fantasy.”(Act 3 scene 3) Emilia gives the napkin to Iago because she has been commanded by him to steal it. She is unaware of her husband’s plans and curious to know what he wants to do with it. But she knows that he will not tell her about his plans. She does ask Iago what he wants to do with the handkerchief, but does not get an answer. The society expects her to be submissive to her husband.
As crazy as it sounds, he really thinks that just because he is now rich, him and Daisy will get back together like they were in the past. Out of all the themes, the desire to recreate the past is the most relevant to Fitzgerald's life, in my opinion. He fell in love with women and watched them marry rich men because he was poor. He too had to move on with his life and become rich in order to become an eligible suitor for past loves. The last line in the book, "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."(pg.
King Lear says to his daughters ‘if it be you that stirs these daughters’ hearts against their father’ which shows how he feels betrayed: a feeling he may have not felt if he had not been so foolish to dismiss Cordelia for her honesty. Cordelia, however, plays a smaller role in the first few Acts of the play as she is disowned by her father and is not visited. Gonerill and Regan are both cruel father and do not have the same loyalty we get the impression as Cordelia does. Cordelia says at the beginning of the play ‘what shall Cordelia speak, love and be silent’ which shows that she loves her father however doesn’t feel she should lie about how much she loves her father. This truthfulness however lands her in a bad place as she is disowned by her father for not professing her love.
I did love you once. (III.i.111-115) Hamlet promised to marry Ophelia after he took her innocence. He then began to mistreat her and finally … left her. When Hamlet realizes Ophelia’s father caught him in a trap he becomes furious. In fact he becomes so angry that he tells Ophelia that he never loved her and that instead of marrying she should go to a nunnery rather then pass on her genes to children.
