Also, he realizes that she is not one to marry for money or social status, but she wants to marry a man that she truly loves, which is a surprise to him. This radical modification of his attitude results in a second marriage proposal for Elizabeth, where he genuinely expresses his feelings. Although he is uncertain of her answer, he simply wants to make his love for her known. The slightly astonished Elizabeth immediately recognizes how much the tone and motive in his second proposal have changed from his first and also reveals her love for him. Mr. Darcy’s two proposals do not simply act as means to communicating his feeling to Elizabeth, but as a documentation of his significant change in

“Mr. Darcy’s concern for Elizabeth is so great, so sublimely disinterested that, whether or not she loves him, he wants to make her happy and never claim the credit (Wisenfarth). Mr. Darcy starts to hide his character flaws that forbid Elizabeth from being attracted to him, which causes Elizabeth to fall in love with him in return. Over the novel, Mr. Darcy’s ego and stubbornness get in the way of how people view him. When he decides to let those negative character traits go, people, like Elizabeth, start to see a side of him that they like.
The Ways in Which Narrative Perspectives Vary in The French Lieutenant's Woman and Hawksmoor Although there are many different perspectives taken in the two novels that shape the overall theme of each plot, comparisons can be drawn between them to show that they share a few fundamental similarities in the way that the authors present their narrative. By looking at the this presentation, it is possible to extract that the authors share common ground in the role that they take in the novel, the post-modernist way they seem to perceive their own role as a novelist and their perspectives on the theme of time in a novel. These factors combine to suggest that the novels, which have very different stories, actually are very similar in the way that they break the conventional moulds of story telling. Without a doubt, the author plays the greatest role of all in construction of a novel but it is not often that this role is furthered by involvement in the plot, or questioned in the way that these two authors do. Both novels have aspects of this but show it in different ways: for example, in 'Hawksmoor', Peter Ackroyd adopts multiple narrative voices and presents himself to the reader in different ways, whereas John Fowles literally places himself in the book and also hides behind some other subtle characters.
Little Love in The Great Gatsby One would think you would be able to find some sign of true love in the dazzling love story, The Great Gatsby, but that is not necessarily true in my opinion. In many instances you read about what you would think is love among some of the characters like between Tom and Myrtle for example. But with them and all the characters there are contradicting instances that say otherwise. With Tom and Myrtle, you assume he loves her because he is cheating on his wife to be with her. But he also treats her bad at times both verbally and physically, for instance, when he slaps her for mouthing off and talks to her as though she were inferior to him.
Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath In the novels 'The Great Gatsby' by Scott Fitzgerald and 'The Grapes of Wrath' by John Steinbeck, the authors present similar ideas, but use different methods to portray them. Similarities in themes can be made between the two texts; these include the pursuit of the American Dream and the use and misuse of wealth. Other themes are also central to each novel, the strength in unity and the influence of female characters. The presentation of these similar themes is different, by the use of characters, setting, society, plot, and style and techniques employed by the author. The pairing of these two texts gave me a clear understanding of how authors can present similar ideas in different ways.
The novel is awash with symbolism which enhance the themes portrayed in the novel, but a few specific symbols are the color green, the entire setting of the story, and the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg. All of these symbols help the reader to draw conclusions about the time period, as well as further understand the personalities and attitudes of the characters. By causing the characters to have multi-faceted characteristics and dispositions, Fitzgerald causes the reader to feel like they are involved in the book, which leads the reader to become involved in the novel and actually feel like he is one of the characters. Symbolism enhances any piece of literature, but this piece in particular utilized symbolism to flawlessness.

When I had cats and when I forgot to feed them, when I came home they were gone. Most of them did not come back. And sometimes, they steal food from the counter.
Dogs will also learn their name and come to you when they’re called, but cats usually don't learn their name.Dogs also will play with people more than cats will. Dogs are way more comforting than cats, and they can get you more active at the same time. Dogs can be more comforting because they are excited to see you when you get home while cats are still mad you left them there. Many get you more active because most dog owners will walk their dog. They also know when you’re sad and try to comfort you, while cats don’t care if you’re happy or not.
Time and time again Fitzgerald displays his skills of developing his characters through plots and scenes of enchanting parties and mansions. Through these scenarios, the reader develops a sense of the purposelessness of the rich, the values of West and East Egg society, and Gatsby. Each individual scene reveals the subtle nuances of each and every character. Is shown to the reader in such a way that the reader picks up an idea of who each character is. By a landslide, the Great Gatsby owes a lot of its character development to its settings.
