The fact that he can light the whole house in this way points at his wealth but also his ignorance as he isn’t even in the house ‘I saw Gatsby walking towards me across the lawn’. The writer structurally connects the chapter with the previous one as Gatsby’s desperation to see Daisy is continued, ‘looking at me with suppressed eagerness’. The writer develops Gatsby’s character and the reader begins to see what this man has been hiding. The writer makes Gatsby appear to not to care hugely about the meeting with Daisy by portraying him as being overly polite, ‘What day would suit you?’, ‘I don’t want to be any trouble’. The writer then contradicts this with the description ‘signs of sleeplessness beneath his eyes’ which suggests to the reader that Gatsby has been over thinking and almost obsessed about this meeting.
Alec Rizzo A-1 3/14/12 Symbolic Hope in The Great Gatsby Hope is a very strong force for humans. A little bit of hope can go along way when a person is trying to achieve something out of their reach. In The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald Gatsby was reaching for something nearly impossible, however he never get up, and this was shown through the symbols in the book. The Green Light, Gatsby’s money, and the character Nick are all symbols that show Gatsby’s hope that he can win Daisy back. Fitzgerald uses symbols in The Great Gatsby to give Gatsby hope to get back with Daisy.
This green light is what he can see of Daisy’s house and serves as an aim, a motive for Gatsby. However, it is out of reach and there seems to be something almost supernatural about it, not dissimilar to the American dream and it’s implausibility for the majority of Americans in the 1920s. Gatsby has romanticised Daisy so much that she becomes a fantasy who cannot possibly fulfil expectations. This is exactly what happened with the American dream, even if someone did manage to achieve it, they would most likely not be satisfied as it may not live up to their over glorified and undeserved expectations. Nick see’s this as he points out that “there must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams” and also understands that this is “not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his (Gatsby’s) illusion.

His father also advises him not to judge too quickly - this shows the reader that this is one of Nick’s failings and that he judges people more quicker than he should. This is shown when Nick is seen to be intolerant and judgemental – Nick viewed Gatsby’s life with ‘unaffected scorn’ and was ‘disgusted’ by Tom and Daisy’s marriage. This gives the idea that Nick is dishonest and the reader becomes less trusting of his narration. Geography and morality are linked in this chapter in many ways. East egg is said to be a conservative aristocrat however, it is not as refined as it appears – Tom’s description is seen as ‘hulking’ and ‘aggressive’ whereas upper class
This racial language is disgusting and should not be said by a young boy, but it goes to show that Ben has inherited some of his mother’s racism. On the other hand Daisy is extremely hurt and distressed by Ben’s language towards her. Her innocent mind cannot comprehend why Ben would say such a thing, even if he was purely influenced by his mother. Mrs Preedy is very involved in her son’s life and prevents him from making his own decisions because of her racial views. She made it impossible for him to become friends with Daisy only because of her coloured skin tone.
He decided to tie money and Daisy together, hoping to impress Daisy that his old poor self had changed into one of her kind. However, because Gatsby didn’t have potential or talent, he could not seem to convince Daisy to fall in love with him again, thus ending his pursuit for happiness. Even though his money could have impressed Daisy, his ways of getting money were not impressive, especially because Gatsby had hidden this lie from Daisy for such a long time. It wasn’t long until Tom convinced Daisy that he “sold grain alcohol over the counter. That’s one of [Gastby’s] little stunts” (133).
An island is a contingent being and cannot be compared with the necessary being that is God as it isn’t a reasonable comparison. Anselm didn’t intend for a whole new argument to be formed out of this amendment, it was planned to just strengthen it, but it did stop Gaunilo in his tracks as no counter argument was provided for this. Why this occurred is unknown, maybe Gaunilo agreed with Anselm or maybe he just had no way to criticise it at the
Farhad then asks if Daniel has a friend that replaces doors Daniel tells Farhad that he does not and that Farhad needs to call someone else that fixes doors. Farhad assumes that Daniel is trying to cheat him because even though Daniel replaced the lock but did not fix the door that he did not do his job. Because of the communication display of Farhad toward Daniel, Farhad did not effectively accomplish what he wanted. (Haggis, 2004) The matter could have been easily handled effectively if Daniel maybe could have used nonverbal communication by showing him what he did and explained that the lock was replaced and that it’s not the lock but, his door that needs to be fixed. “When you communicate with others, one way to minimize misunderstandings is to increase your awareness of the intentions of your messages and the possible interpretations of your words.
