Mrs.Johnson 8th period English 2 Pre-IB Color Analysis Great Gatsby It is arguable that Jay Gatsby values two things above all others—love (particularly his love for Daisy Buchanon) and money (the means by which he hopes to win Daisy’s heart). The two motivations converge in Fitzgerald’s use of the color green, a symbol that represents both love and money as well as Gatsby’s ultimate goal—a spring-like renewal that would put his past behind him and plant the seeds for a future with Daisy. Fitzgerald shows green in its many incarnations, from the promise of a new bud to the decay of a stagnant pond, as Gatsby’s dream progresses from a fleeting affair into a full blown physical and mental sophistication obession with theses two main things. A careful examination of the " The Great Gatsby", by F. Scott Fitzgerald reveals that his intention was to satirize the Corruption of society. Set in the core of America, Fitzgerald portrays a hedonistic society decaying in morals and consumed in materialism, he expresses this through the symbolism of color and nature.
Making Catch-22 the remarkable as well as groundbreaking masterpiece it is today. Catch-22 is one of Heller’s greatest works because the book consisted of satirical humor which eased the thought of war. Heller changed the way America looked at war by showing the readers another side of war that could only be seen if one had participated in a war themselves, such as WW II. He had turned the realism of war into a surrealistic masterpiece “Mr. Heller’s novel changed the formula, and in the process lifted realism to new surrealistic level” (Solomita).

Cullen Machado Mrs. Conway English III 19 January 2015 Symbols of “The Great Gatsby“ There are two main symbols that stick out to me throughout the novel and the movie of “The Great Gatsby” The green light at the end of Daisy's dock is the symbol of Gatsby's hopes and dreams. It represents everything that haunts and beckons Gatsby: the physical and emotional distance between him and Daisy, the gap between the past and the present, the promises of the future, and the powerful lure of that other green stuff he craves—money. In fact, the color green pops up everywhere in The Great Gatsby. Long Island sound is "green"; George Wilson's haggard tired face is "green" in the sunlight; Michaelis describes the car that kills Myrtle Wilson as "light green" (though it's yellow); Gatsby's perfect lawn is green; and the New World that Nick imagines Dutch explorers first stumbling upon is a "fresh, green breast." The symbolism of green throughout the novel is as variable and contradictory as the many definitions of "green" and the many uses of money—"new," "natural," "innocent," "naive," and "uncorrupted"; but also "rotten," "gullible," "nauseous," and "sickly."
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.
However, on the hand, Wordsworth begins his poem with “earth has not anything to show more fair. Dull would he be of soul who could pass by.” This implies a totally different view, this clarifies Wordsworth’s opinion, that he finds London the most beautiful place on Earth. Moreover, the way which Wordsworth structures his poem, is majorly different. Wordsworth uses a form, ten syllables in each line to keep the pace of the poem. Blake uses a quatrain, which is a rhyming scene that has four line stanzas.

The ending of the poem symbolizes the “end” of life, “The sun does descend” (23), “On the darkening Green” (30). The nature of the sun “descending” means night will come; nightlife is parallel to life ending. Blake not only uses nature to show the cycle of life, he uses nature as a religious hidden message. In Ecchoing Green the word “Sun” is being used with a capital S, for which can represent God. The sun as we know gives off heat, it shines its
