In the following I will give a brief summary and discuss the theme. The Glass Menagerie begins with Tom introducing the play as a memory, his own memory of the past. At the start of the play the Wingfield family is eating dinner, after constant harassment on how to eat his food Tom leaves the table to go smoke a cigarette on the fire escape. Amanda tells Laura her story of the old days when she received seventeen gentlemen callers in one day. The next day Amanda finds out that Laura has dropped out of business school, and confronts her, Laura explains that she could not handle the class and has been out walking every day.
When Tom gets to know that his affair was killed, he first thought that was Gatsby who had killed her, and he misled Myrtle’s husband that Gatsby was the killer. Unfortunately, Gatsby was killed by Myrtle’s husband for being a wrong killer. In this book, a lot of judgments occur. Not only Nick judg... ... middle of paper ... ... to Gatsby, Which shows she is careless again. Tom, he is careless for having a mistress.
In the Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the secrecy and deceit of the characters prompt the question of how truthful the world is that we live in today. Deceit in the world causes the both the collapse and the structure of society today. Most perceive lies as an incorrect thing to do, and yet, they themselves are prejudiced because they do it themselves. Gatsby withholds the truth of his past, and most of his party-goers think fantastical things about Gatsby and his past. Two of the girls at Gatsby’s party said that Gatsby had either “killed a man once” or “was a German spy during the war” (Fitzgerald 48).
Before Nick goes to dinner with the Buchanans, he fills us in on Tom’s privileged life: “Her husband…a national figure in a way, one of those men who reach such an acute limited excellence at twenty-one that everything afterward savors of anti-climax. His family were enormously wealthy” (Fitzgerald 6). This passage illustrates Tom’s trouble-free access to masses of money. With this money comes power and obviously this power has made Tom feel like he is at liberty to anything. Paul Krugman also states this in his article: “And among the undeniably rich, a belligerent sense of entitlement has taken hold” Another one of Tom’s amazing traits is having self-pity.
Instead of letting Santiago Nasar know about the murder plot against him, the Colonel goes back to his game of dominos at the social club. In addition “Colonel Lazaro Aponte, who had seen and caused so many repressive massacres, becomes a vegetarian as well as a spiritualist” (Garcia Márquez 6). The punishment for his neglect results in him eating liver for breakfast. Throughout the presentations, I made a connection with Poncio Vicario at the wedding party. Page 44 in the work describes the old man at the party.
Furthermore, there are many rumours about Gatsby, because he is so mysterious. “Somebody told me they thought he killed a man.” (Fitzgerald, 44) Nobody knows Gatsby, so everyone has his own theory about him. Gatsby’s personality makes him very mysterious as he isolates himself from the guests at his parties. This is proven when Nick is looking at Gatsby, “The nature of Mr. Tostoff’s composition eluded me, because just as it began my eyes fell on Gatsby, standing alone on the marble steps and looking from one group to another with approving eyes.” (Fitzgerald, 50) Gatsby is a very strange man, because instead of joining his guests, he is all alone and looking at them. Therefore, Gatsby is known to be mysterious.
In the beginning, Nick moves into New York and his neighbor turns out to be a very famous person around the city. This mysterious person turns out to be Jay Gatsby who is very well known but no one really knows who he is; they just know him from his extravagant parties that he throws all the time. As a result of these parties, he gets to know Gatsby as this very important, popular and well looked up to figure. Later throughout the novel, he starts to get to know who the real Gatsby is after Gatsby refers to him as one of his greatest friends. As he gathers this information about him, he comes to the conclusion that Gatsby is a fake who is not from a rich family, and that he has lied about a big part of his life.
