Tom and Daisy’s invitation (and attendance) to one of Gatsby’s extravagant parties allows Fitzgerald to truly cement the gulf between Gatsby and Daisy. When Gatsby urges Daisy to “look around” she describes she is having a “marvellous time” yet her speech is interrupted by Gatsby. This is an indication of Gatsby’s nervousness because his usual finesse and polish has been cracked due to the significance he has placed on Daisy coming to one of his luxurious parties. It also reveals Gatsby’s lack of true social grace, despite his obvious monetary gains, we can see his impoverished roots (revealed earlier in the chapter) come to light. Gatsby also urges Daisy to “look around” because he is desperate to show her what he has created and ‘earned’ for her.
He cheats on her, and when she finds out, it seems he could not care less. But Daisy cannot even leave him because she is too scared, and has no one to run to. Through Daisy’s situation, Fitzgerald is expressing that even when people are treated horribly, they still rely on wealth and high status. Even in society today, we see people deteriorating because of their goals to meet society’s standards. The neglect from her husband causes Daisy to wilt, much like the flower if it were treated harshly.
The reason the relationship is impossible is because the military man realized he could not devote himself to the "hard" life they live in that city, a life where they deny themselves pleasure in any form; even the food they eat was bland. The second daughter was pursued by a once famous musician, but in the same way deny herself his love, and then he left their little town. The early church in Corinth seemed to be on both sides of the issue, meaning while some people were allowing themselves any type of earthly pleasure because they were spiritual beings, so it did not matter what they did with their bodies, others would not allow themselves any type of pleasure like the people in the movie. In 1 Corinthians 7:10-11, Paul speaks to the Corinthians about the latter matter. Apparently
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.
When the stranger leaves Elsa changes her physical appearance.She now dresses like a women, wears makeup, and even fixes her hair. When her husband returned she dressed up for him, even putting on makeup she also laid his clothes out on the bed for him and ran a hot bath. The chrysanthemum represents Elisa's female qualities, the man's taking the chrysanthemums represents her giving up a part of herself. When Elisa sees the flowers on the side of the road, her dreams are shattered and ruined as is the flower. This changes Elisa again, along with her new confidence.
Tom is married to Daisy but Gatsby wants to steel her back. Through the book Gatsby try’s to impress daisy . One way that Gatsby and Tom are different is that Gatsby is weird and mysterious and Tom is more normal and snobby. In the book during Gatsby’s party’s he would just stay by himself and watch the party’s. Another
For example, the party in Tom's apartment, where he has an affair with Myrtle Wilson, expresses the deterioration of morality and culture due corruption and self-indulgence in luxury. However Gatsby is very different to the other demoralized characters as even though he has gained his reputation through ‘new money’ and choosing to use prohibition as a means of acquiring wealth we understand that unlike everybody else Gatsby does it in order to achieve his American dream which is Daisy Buchanan. Through throwing lavish parties which were described to come “with a simplicity
This lack of sudden change wouldn't also fit in with the play's stark and down-to-earth style; demoralisation of a man is far more commonly a slow-acting process, and an attempt to adhere to Aristotle's decree would have been ultimately detrimental to Miller's fundamental aim for DoaS: to create a play relevant to 'every man' of his time. Willy's 'Harmartia' (fatal flaw) is his unwavering belief in the American Dream and his innate stubbornness. He refuses to accept the unconditional love of his family (in particular, Linda) and instead tries to 'win them over' as he would a customer. He appears to have a fundamental misunderstanding of the way the world works. His perception of the world may have been
The narrator seems to be a witness to the vinery and embroidery business. Sensible enough to understand the business tactics of the ‘vintner and embroidery vender’, the narrator mocks at the follies of the tourists, who are swayed easily by the trickery of the experienced vintner and embroidery vendor. Nash uses short flowing sentences, with a very evident rhyme scheme in the form of rhyming couplets- ‘vineries’ and ‘fineries’ which create a joyous mood. To further extend the sense of flow and continuity, the poet also uses enjambment, “Madeira … extremely expensive fineries”. The sense of flow creates an image of wine flowing freely and also the money flowing out of the pockets of the inebriated tourists.
He did not truly make any friends through his wealth, and his money is no use to him now that he is dead. Gatsby dies alone with no one to think of him and his wealth did not improve his memory at all. Nick says: “I tried to think about Gatsby then for a moment, but he was already too far away, and I could only remember, without resentment, that Daisy hadn’t sent a message or a flower”(174). Gatsby does everything he could think of to get Daisy, his quest for wealth being intertwined with his love for her, but in the end his money did not make the difference. He is still left unfulfilled, his money unable to substantiate his love for Daisy.
