  • F Scott Fitzgerald - 1,138 words
    F. Scott Fitzgerald Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald once said Mostly we authors must repeat ourselvesthat's the truth. We have two or three experiences in our lives experiences so great and moving that it doesn't seem at the time that anyone else has been so caught up (de Koster n. pag.). Fitzgerald's works contain many themes that are based from experiences in his life. Many of these experiences he talks about were with the women in his life.

    A Comparison Of Biographic Features In The Sun Also Rises And The Great Gatsby Trevor Bender Mrs. Watkins AP Lit. and Comp April 12th, 2001 The writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway included biographical information in their novels The Great Gatsby and The Sun Also Rises that illuminated the meaning of the work.

They both make use of non-judgemental narrators to comment on the lost generation. This narrator allows Fitzgerlald and Hemingway to write about their own society. Fitzgerlald comments on the ja ...

    ... doesn't.1) Gatsby is gullible for beliving Daisy when she tells him she loved him, when it is clear to both the reader and nick that her only concern is money and wealth. When she tells him that she loved Tom too, the words seemed to bite physically into Gatsby.2) This shows the romantic idealized views of Gatsby. Hemingway and The Sun Also Rises Like Fitzgerald's, The Great Gatsby, The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway contains autobiographical features that illuminate the work and add to the meaning of the novel. However, the plot behind The Sun Also Rises is more exactly based on actual events in Hemingway's life than The Great Gatsby was to Fitzgerald's life. Indeed, the entire plot ...

Although Diver never really seems to express the same obvious undying love for Nicole that Gatsby appears to feel for Daisy, his demise also begins with the breaking down of his already dysfunctional relationship. In the way that Gatsby had created Daisy in his mind, Dick created Nicole as her psychologist, and he delights in her progress. However, she is his creation, and the signs that he is losing control of his creation help send him spiralling downward. The stronger Nicole grows, the less she needs Dick, and eventually she leaves. Although this seems negative, the Divers relationship was ...

  • Edna St Vincent Millays Aria Da Capo - 1,532 words
    Edna St. Vincent Millay's Aria da Capo In music, an "aria da capo" (or "song of the head" in English) is a piece that is divided into three parts. The first part is set in one mood or key, the second is set in a completely different one, and the third is simply a repeat (perhaps slightly altered) of the first section.

This is the method which Edna St. Vincent Millay chose to use when she constructed her comedic satire "Aria da Capo" after the First World War. Three appears to the magic number in th ...
