Christianity tries to relieve and resolve the problems with depression and strengthen the life of those who endure tragedies.

In this article she discusses a study that was done in 2015 by Marguerite E. O’Haire and several others, as part of a larger project, and includes quotes with several experts in the field.

Nick Carraway: Friend, Critic, and Non-Dreamer

- If the enemy of one’s enemy is a friend, Jay Gatsby must be the reader’s enemy. However, that remains unclear, because Nick Carraway—a friend of Mr. Gatsby—never supplies a clear point on the matter.

Gatsby lives the dream—money, status and the woman of his dreams—while the highly relatable Nick exists in the shadows of this man—without a dream. As told in this first-person narrative, the entire story and its events are filtered through the lens of the fallible Nick, and this gives way into the duality of the story....   [tags: Character Analysis ]
