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.).

- Great Gatsby - 1,900 words
Great Gatsby Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, born in St. Paul, Minnesota, grew up in an upper-middle class family where he enjoyed the traditions of the upper classes, but not the financial ability to uphold those practices. Fitzgerald acquired his fame, almost overnight, with the publication of his first book, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. His extensive career began with the writing of stories for mass-circulation magazines, such as The Saturday Evening Post. That same year, he married Zelda Sayre, who later became one his major influences on his writing, along with literature, Princeton, and alcohol. In the summer of 1924, Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby, a novel about the American dream ...

- Great Gatsby And Jazz Times - 627 words
Great Gatsby And Jazz Times In his Jazz Age novel, The Great Gatsby, Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald portrays society as snobs who bask in the wealth of the age. The novel was written in the heart of the Jazz Age and depicts it flawlessly. After World War I, many companies that had been making war supplies returned to creating their unique products. (ELCO) "The Jazz Age was a time of prosperity, but also a time of many downfalls. It was an era of change ... a time when people began to do what they wanted to do instead of following social norms." (ELCO) This caused industry to "boom", and the economy accelerated with frightening speed. Some people became very wealthy, and in Fitzgerald's novel, ...

- The Great Gatsby - 609 words
The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was influenced by eastern society during the roaring 20's. He portrays his knowledge of eastern morality in the novel The Great Gatsby. In The Great Gatsby the corruptive effect of wealth is the cause of the most conflict regarding the morals of Nick Caraway and the morals of Daisy and Tom Buchanan, Jordan Baker, and Jay Gatsby. Daisy Buchanan has a very little moral value for herself and others. She is very careless. These low morals show throughout many parts in the story. For instance, her attitude toward Jay Gatsby - she doesn't want him for what he is, but for the superficial illusion of what he is. The ultimate act of carel ...

- The Great Gatsbysuper Notes Automatic A - 5,776 words
The Great Gatsby/Super Notes Automatic A+ Have you ever felt that there were two of you battling for control of the person you call yourself? Have you ever felt that you weren't quite sure which one you wanted to be in charge? All of us have at least two selves: one who wants to work hard, get good grades, and be successful; and one who would rather lie in the sun and listen to music and daydream. To understand F. Scott Fitzgerald, the man and the writer, you must begin with the idea of doubleness, or twoness. Fitzgerald himself said in a famous series of essays called The Crack Up, the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, a ...

- The War Of 1812 - 870 words
The War of 1812 The War of 1812 To many, the War of 1812 is considered the second war for independence. To me, it is the one of the most unusual wars of all time. During a time period between 1803-1812 British sailors had been tormenting American ships on the high seas. British captains would eventually take over and capture over 10,000 American citizens to man British ships. In June of 1807, three miles off the coast of Virginia, an American ship named the Chesapeake was commanded by a British ship named the Leopard to be boarded. When the Chesapeake refused to cooperate, the Leopard fired, killing three and wounding eighteen. This humiliated the United States and its people. The anti-Briti ...

- The War Of 1812 Was Fought Between The United States And Great Britain From - 1,837 words
The War of 1812 was fought between the United States and Great Britain from June 1812 to the spring of 1815, although the peace treaty ending the war was signed in Europe in December 1814. The main land fighting of the war occurred along the Canadian border, in the Chesapeake Bay region, and along the Gulf of Mexico; there was also fighting that took place at sea. There were many reasons for the Americans to go to war with the British. From the end of the American Revolution in 1783, the United States had been irritated by the failure of the British to withdraw from American territory along the Great Lakes, their backing of the Indians on America's frontiers, and their unwillingness to sign ...
