Hamlet's Themes Revived in Great Expectations - Hamlet's Themes Revived in Great Expectations        Many of Hamlet's themes are revived in the text of Great Expectations. Charles Dickens creates characters and plots that are intertextually linked with the elements of the fatherly ghost and revenge in Hamlet. Pip chronicles his quest for self-discovery and establishing and/or diminishing his relationships with fatherly figures. In doing so he, much like Hamlet, is challenged by situations filled with revenge and dauntless ghosts. By Dickens integrating the Hamlet motif into Great Expectations, he promotes the reader's understanding of the dominant themes and message of Pip's tragedy, which directly correlate to the character of Prince Hamlet....   [tags: Great Expectations Essays]

The Great Gatsby and the Great Depression - The Great Gatsby and the Great Depression       When F. Scott Fitzgerald published The Great Gatsby in 1925, it was impossible for him to predict that only four years later his story would be enacted in real-life during the Great Depression.  There are many prophetic symbols in the novel that tie The Great Gatsby and the Great Depression together.               The twenties was a decade full of new financial opportunities in a society unable to adopt so much so quickly.  All of the new possibilities, such as credit and loans, led to greater debts and bigger holes to fill.  Society began getting too deeply in debt and was becoming increasingly unable to get itself out.  So, they began searching for alternate means of wealth.  One extremely enticing instrument was the ever-growing stock market.  Many people bought stocks low, hoping to sell high when the market peaked.  But, as confidence in the stock market's "devotion" to buyers faltered, stockholders began selling as fast as they could.  In turn, this rapid selling of stocks lead to the crash in 1929.  Gatsby, like a stockholder put all of his "wealth" into Daisy.  She was his only hope to escape his "impoverished" past, so Gatsby was left with no choice but to put all of his money into her (like the people of the twenties did with the stock market).  When Gatsby and Daisy confronted Tom in the city that hot summer day, Daisy's devotion to Gatsby faltered like the stock market's "devotion" to the stockholders.  Gatsby didn't "sell his stock," though.  He held out for the "market" to go back up, although after the all-night vigil at Daisy's house he clung to his lasting bit of faith that it really would.  Although Gatsby didn't live to know it, he was right.  By Daisy not coming to Gatsby's funeral, it shows that she plummeted and took a long time to recover, as did the stock market during The Great Depression....   [tags: Great Gatsby Essays]

The Great Gatsby is No Love Story - The Great Gatsby is No Love Story       Many argue that F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby is an example of the "great American love story", but it is not.

Throughout the story, we follow multiple relationships, but focus is on the single relationship between Gatsby and Daisy. This relationship, however, fails to fulfill many requirements that would make it a true love story, and thus, while some hardship is to be expected, this relationship encounters an excessive amount....   [tags: Great Gatsby Essays]

Themes in Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby - Themes in Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby The American Dream On first glance, The Great Gatsby is about a romance between Gatsby and Daisy.

This loss of the American dream is shown by Fitzgerald's display of this decade as a morally deficient one. He shows its incredible decadence in Gatsby's lavish and ostentatious parties. This materialistic attitude toward life came from the disillusionment of the younger generation of the old Victorian values....   [tags: Great Gatsby Fitzgerald] 745 words
