Even Curley doesn’t not refer to her by her name, he always says, “Where’s my wife?” which can we disrespectful. They talk badly of her by calling her a tart and everyone often shuts her out. Curley’s wife may be very flirtatious and her actions can cause a lot of problems, Curley is really the
Morality aside, she “[walks] through her husband as if he were a ghost” (26), completely disregarding his emotions. Another example of adultery in the novel is Gatsby’s relationship with the married Daisy Buchanan. He finally reunites with his dream girl after five years of separation, however, Tom eventually learns of his wife’s betrayal, “I stared at him[Wilson] then at Tom, who had made a parallel discovery less than an hour before…” (124) He is enraged at the news and sees no justification in Daisy’s actions despite his own unfaithfulness. Tom and Daisy’s disloyalty further projects their lack of respect and
Browning over-exaggerates the features and beauty of the nature of England almost making them come alive with her use of personification. The poem is very descriptive and also plays on all the five senses. She shows the sense of taste with the use of the word ‘sweeter’ in line 12, ‘ Made sweeter for the step upon the grass’ and also line 20, ‘Fed full of noises by invisible streams,’ the sense of hearing is shown using the word ‘noises.’ Browning also used the repetition to give the reader a sense of continuity. She shows that nature is evergreen and will be omnipresent in this world. This can be seen with the repetition of words like ‘the’ and ‘and’.
However, after being reacquainted, Gatsby exclaims, "She [Daisy] never loved you [Tom], do you hear"" he cried. "She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!"'(137). Even though it appears that Daisy places importance on the values of love, she still chooses the status and comfort of Tom Buchanan’s wealth. In Tom and Daisy’s superficial relationship, the absence of love is evident by the lack of their communication.
So if your husband did love you anymore I would go find someone else that will and give me the full attention that I deserve from the man. Why can a man cheat in the relationship and it be alright and the woman acts like they don’t see it. But when the woman is cheating in the relationship everyone knows and it is the worst thing in the world, the men don’t act like they don’t know. If the man is unfaithful not only is he making a woman unhappy, but she cannot even go find happiness with someone else because the guy will be a hypocrite about it. No woman wants to be cheated on after the man married her; these are not qualities that are looked for in an ideal man in
* “dying orchids on the floor beside her bed” pg 151 quote * Daisy was in a fog and she did not know what to do without Gatsby. * The beauty of the orchids had gone away now and they were “dying” because the happiness of her evening came and went so quickly like the life of the orchids. Body Paragraph 3: TRS: The white petals of a daisy signify purity which is similar to the pureness of sprit signified by the white outfits that Daisy wears. (need to clean up) TS: The name Daisy given to Gatsby’s true love is significant because outwardly she appeared to be worthy of his love but inwardly she was not
The thoughts he has shaped are not what the actual reality is. This quote describes Daisy “tumbling short of his dreams” signifying that his high standards are something she can’t reach. The flawlessness he has created for her is nothing like the genuine Daisy that she is and in the novel you have an insufficient idea of her actual personality. This is not her fault; but because of the enormous development of his “creative passion” it is nothing she can become. The “ghostly heart” means a lonely or dark heart.
His count of enchanted objects had diminished by one” (Fitzgerald 93).Good quote.Make the point that he gets close to his dream, but can’t quite reach it. Why? Gatsby moved as close as possible to Daisy, and yet one can see it is not close enough for him, for he is praising the green light the represents Daisy, he is drawn to it, obsessed with it. Although he has become very close to fulfilling his dream, he cannot reach it
This differs from how Lily acts because Lily relies on others to help make her happy. One of the reasons that June does not want to marry Neil is because she does not want to admit that she might actually need him. She is afraid of letting someone know that she needs them because the last time she fell in love he left her. “Ever since Melvin Edwards backed out of your wedding all those years back, you’ve been afraid of love, refusing to take a chance” (211). August knows that June is afraid to fall in love again because the last man that she fell in love with left her.
