George does not see how the clown in the party does not know whom Bozo the Clown is. He also nags that Eric is not a proper name for a clown. During the party, a fire breaks out in the home and George pushes everyone aside, including the
He married Daisy with sole interest in her social status and family name. He obviously doesn’t love her if he is having random affairs all the time. So Tom and Daisy basically just have a marriage based on money and social status so they really should just be business partners. Personally, I don’t understand why Nick tolerates anyone other than Gatsby. He goes to all of their dinners and parties when he really doesn’t like any of them.
To move forth to the second point, we also come to the idea that Gatsby couldn’t achieve his dream, for he was struggling with the concept of the dream, and we realize this by seeing him trying to love a memory that ceased to exist. As we can be led in, we see in the end of chapter 6 that Gatsby throws a party, but he notices Daisy didn’t like it. As F. Scott Fitzgerald states, “’Can’t repeat the past?’ he cried incredulously ‘why of course you can!’” (116) Nick tells Gatsby (in summarization, this is not how he said it specifically) not to feel bad about the past, because you can’t repeat it. Gatsby, in reply, states the quote previously noted. The significance of this quote is that it displays us the feelings Gatsby has for his memories.
In fact, many people were disturbed by the impact it was having on our society. The carefree environment made many question what type of culture was America becoming. “From barbaric entertainment, they saw an emerging barbaric new culture” (Kasson 96). James Huncker was not a extreme conservative man. He “ranged freely over music, literature, art, and other subjects,” but could not agree with what was taking place at Coney Island.
Ponyboy really likes cherry they have a lot in common. It was going great for Ponyboy until he found out that cherry is a soc which meant they can’t hang out or see each other at all anymore. A while before Ponyboy met cherry jonny was beat up by bob, which is a soc, and after Ponyboy discovers cherry is a soc he discovers that bob is also cherry’s boyfriend. After finding out about cherry and bob Ponyboy decides to go home and think about it all when he got home Darry screams at Ponyboy about how he can’t come home at two am, because Darry didn’t know if he was all right. The conversation turned into a yelling match and Darry ended up hitting Ponyboy, at that moment Ponyboy ran to the park and Jonny followed him so that he could get away from his house.
She can’t go back and forth for the richer man just so she has more money. In comparison, Tom has his own little affairs. When he and Gatsby are arguing, he talks his affairs in relation with his wife. He tells Gatsby: “And what’s more, I love Daisy too. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always
No one you love is ever truly lost.” (McLain 204) This shows how Fitz is struggling with Zelda in their relationship. Them partying all the time has put tension on their relationship. All Zelda wanted to do was party, Fitzgerald just wanted
This style of living is much different compared to that of the West Eggers. At the first of Gatsby’s parties Nick describes the atmosphere as such; “… the air is alive with chatter and laughter, and casual innuendo and introductions forgotten on the spot, and enthusiastic meetings between women who never knew each other’s names” (Fitzgerald, 40). There is constant commotion and conversation. People who barely know one another become instantly obsessed with affairs of their lives. Unlike the old rich, the new rich live in the now and are ebullient and excited about every detail.
And Daisy goes throughout the book ignoring her morals. Jay Gatsby is portrayed as someone having a higher social status and lots of money. The parties he throws are very ornate and fancy. He doesn’t know any of his guests. They began to wonder who Gatsby is.
Myrtle Wilson is ashamed of her social position in life because she is poor. First off, when she is with Tom, (which is wrong in the first place) she is lifted of her under-class blemishes, even though Tom has abused her. When Tom and Nick go into town to the apartment party, Nick states, “Making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand”(37). It is never okay no matter what situation a person is in to hit a woman. Tom is so arrogant that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.
