When Gatsby and Daisy meet after not seeing each other for five years, the weather portrays how the hope of their relationship grows. They live a life of lies and cheating that makes them even more unsatisfied with each other. In The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby believes that one can acquire happiness through the accumulation of wealth. For a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder. There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams--not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion. Jay Gatsby sees this green light far far away from him, but Gatsby knows that his relationship is still present. I woke up out of the ether with an utterly abandoned feeling, and asked the nurse right away if it was a boy or a girl.
But even I have a limit. Gatsby reassures himself and Nick that she just needs more time, but the truth for Jay Gatsby is that his hope lies smashed on the floor like the lamp he knocks over as he and Daisy leave the room. Yet in perhaps the most poignant moment of the film, Daisy tells Gatsby that it would be a lie if she said she had never loved her husband. The unworkable intersection of the two Eggs in the romance between Gatsby and Daisy will serve as the fault line of catastrophe. The green light is not only an object to Gatsby, but a reason to keep pursuing his relationship with Daisy.
It provides an ideal image of what they want but in reality will never accomplish. It is a book that deserves a perfect reading, and though numerous other narrators have tried—among them Robertson Dean, Anthony Heald, Alexander Scourby, and Tim Robbins—Hope may have come closest to achieving this perfection. He was born in St Paul, Minnesota, and seems to have had a desire to be a writer from the first. This also includes sub departments. As it turns out, she was right; but he managed to publish his first novel This Side of Paradise to huge acclaim, and became a celebrity.
And then one fine morning—So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. All three areas also have the minimum temperature in January. The marriage of Tom and Daisy Buchanan seems menaced by a quiet desperation beneath its pleasant surface. Daisy speaks these words in Chapter 1 as she describes to Nick and Jordan her hopes for her infant daughter. A rainstorm tends to be dense and mysterious, but when lightning strikes, the storm becomes exciting. Gatsby also tries to show Daisy how rich he is by wearing expensive clothes.
Coincidentally, the rainfall stops when Gatsby engages Daisy in conversation. What we learn from this is that Daisy isn't just a frivolous rich girl—or, she wasn't always. Each setting in the novel corresponds to a particular thematic idea or character type. He knows Daisy very well and knows that he has to be successful in order for her to be with him once again. Society has always placed a significant importance on being rich, being wealthy. Daisy and Tom live a reckless lifestyle, doing whatever it takes to not to take responsibility for their actions. Daisy, on the other hand, tries hard to be shallow, even going so far as to say she hopes her baby daughter will turn out to be a fool, because women live best as beautiful fools.
This first chapter introduces two of the most important locales, East Egg and West Egg. He hopes for some redeeming traits to come out of them but never sees any. Instead it leads to an impractical sense of false hope. The truth was that Jay Gatsby, of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. And she wants nothing more than to keep it that way.
He moved to Hollywood alone, where he failed to make any great impression on the screenwriting world despite doing some uncredited work on Gone With the Wind, and fell in love with a rather extraordinary Jewish-English émigré called Sheilah Graham who wrote, inter alia, gossip columns. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. The difference between highest and lowest is only 8 degrees. This represents the struggle to live in reality with the stress of the past holding Gatsby back. Daisy and Tom live an elite lifestyle with an extreme wealth but they are perhaps the most unhappy. Gatsby stands in stark contrast to the denizens of East Egg.
He wrote when he was sober, understanding that to keep the whole arc of a novel in mind requires clarity of vision and dedication. Gatsby has very large and extravagant parties all because he hopes that Daisy will attend at least one. Without him, the story would not have been possible. Well, she was less than an hour old and Tom was God knows where. Where the hope and promise of a better tomorrow, wait around every corner from the hustle and bustle of New York City to the serene living of Buford, Wyoming. Nick believed that Gatsby was a good man but put himself down to be a part of that lifestyle.
