  • Diver And Great Gatsby - 2,644 words
    Diver And Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald is known as a writer who chronicled his times. This work has been critically acclaimed for portraying the sentiments of the American people during the 1920s and 1930s.

    ... oward death. Gatsby places absolute importance on his love and possible relationship with Daisy. 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 ...

  • Fitzgerald Protagonists - 1,095 words
    Fitzgerald Protagonists There is a very direct similarity between ones behavior and ones environment. Humans are products of the environments they inhabit. Humans evolve and adopt behaviors which are very similar to those found in their social climate. This is especially true when examining the characters of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald presents the characters in his novels as products of a society void of moral integrity. Since Fitzgeralds protagonists in The Last Tycoon, The Great Gatsby, and Tender is The Night, succumb to the moral desert of high society, they end their lives in failure. Fitzgerald places his protagonist in The Last Tycoon, The Great Gatsby , and Tender is The Night, ...

    ... aviors of that society. Jay Gatsby succumbs to his morally void Long Island society by participating in the immoral actions of his society. Firstly, Gatsby explores an adulterous relationship with Daisy, and descends into the world of the virtueless: " So he waited, listening for a moment to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her." (100) Consequently, by physically acting out his desires for Daisy, Gatsby descends into the depths of moral defeat. Secondly, Gatsby succumbs to the immorality of the Long Island by buying into the vain dream of that society. The dream was the good life.

  • 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.

In the summer of 1924, Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby, a novel about the American dream ...

  • Ode To A Nightingale - 1,012 words
    Ode To A Nightingale ODE TO A NIGHTINGALE As one reads this poem of John Keats, the overwhelming feeling is the envy the poet feels toward the nightingale and his song. He compared the carefree life of the bird to the pain, suffering and mortality of men. He continually referred to Greek gods and mythology when speaking of the nightingale as somehow the Bird possessed magical powers. The speaker opened with the explanation my heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains my sense as he listened to the song of the nightingale. He compared his feelings to those of a person that had drunk hemlock or an opiate so that their senses had become dull, or as if drinking from Lethe-wards, a river of the lo ...

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 ...
