F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book The Great Gatsby was a remarkable book. Fitzgerald Made the characters of the book as real and as personal as possible. Three characteristics stood out in the novel to me. Tom’s Jealousy of Gatsby relationship with his wife, Gatsby’s lies about who he is and his life, and Daisy’s ways to tempt Gatsby to fall in love with her. The novel was inspired by the way he fell in love with his wife Zelda.
Dreams are nothing but our innermost desires. We are made to pursue these dreams and have them be the driving force in all we do. Jim Burden is no different; like everyone, he has dreams, and he does his best to pursue them and fulfill them. Or does he? Jim writes the story of Antonia through his own life. He is plagued with the disease of romanticism. He cannot move on; though time will move, Jim's thoughts and emotions are rooted in the past. Frances Harling said it right when she said, "the trouble with you, Jim, is that you're romantic." Jim is a romantic, a dreamer who never acts. Many things contribute to Jim's romanticism, his experiences, his emotions, and his actions; however as no one could suspect, it helped him mature and appreciate loves lost.
When luxuriant lifestyles of the 1920s, commonly labeled the Roaring ‘20s, come about, morality and individual ethics go instantaneously out of style. Along with these poor morals, crass materialism becomes widespread among the fortunate, transforming noblesse oblige into an unpopular belief, and furthermore leaving those incapable of tremendous success back in the dust. The inevitable alterations in morality repeatedly occur as America continues to progress, and several traits similar to those of the 1920s are visible today. Fitzgerald’s use of The Great Gatsby for social commentary is parallel to today’s social atmosphere.
There are countless great authors in the world nowadays. Conversely, many believe that authors of the past were considerably more enjoyable. One of these fecund authors is F. Scott Fitzgerald. The end of his ephemeral life may not have been the best; nonetheless, it was his younger years that breathed life into his writing.

True love can be defined in many different ways and is different for all people. In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, love is explored in many different ways and with many relationships. When reading the novel, the reader is encouraged to wonder what motivates the characters to do what they do. Love is always an underlying theme when dealing with any subject in the book: whether it be an affair, a rekindling romance, or a broken relationship. As the plot of the book unfolds and relationships blossom and end, Fitzgerald addresses the topics of love and sexuality and how they apply to the characters and their relationships in the novel.
Have you ever felt that men always screw things up? Perhaps it is not men themselves that cause destruction; maybe it is merely the result of the presence of a masculine character. The role of masculinity is an essential aspect in both Bobbie Ann Mason's short story entitled, Shiloh, and in Tennessee Williams' play, A Streetcar Named Desire, although it functions very differently in each story. In Shiloh, we see the detrimental effects that the male role has even in its absence through the interactions that Leroy has with his with wife, Norma Jean. Contrasting this particular perspective, in A Streetcar Named Desire the destructive manner of the male role is unmistakably present, as it negatively affects Stanley and Stella's relationship. In these two works, we see the masculine role epitomized by one man, and abandoned by another, which, in both situations, leads to the destruction of their marriages. Through the examination of the two stories it becomes ironically clear how terrible and yet desirable the male role is to conquer, and what different effects it has on the central characters involved.
While F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel "The Great Gatsby" encapsulates the spirit, excitement, and violence of ‘the Jazz Age’ and Robert Browning’s poem "My Last Duchess" reveals the political, social and domestic power wielded by Ferrara (the Duke), it is apparent by juxtaposing the characters of Tom Buchanan and Ferrara that even decades apart there has been very negligible changes in the behaviour of men in a patriarchal society. Despite the fact that Tom and Ferrara are from different time, they share similar characters, as for evidence, both are male chauvinist toward the women in their life, are supremacist about own self and finally both of them are insecure and self-centered.
