- East and West egg New York

No one showing up to Gatsby's funeral shows that his money never bought true freinds

Im Evan and i suck
the desire for power leads to making immoral decisions

Person vs Self

'' For mine own good All causes
shall give way. I am in blood
stepp'd in so far that, should I
wade no more, returning were as
tedious as goe'er'' ( 3.4.24)

Doing this for his own good
Puts aside his own conflicting thoughts to get power

The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby
Person vs Self

"Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be just across the bay'' ( 137 - 140)

Conflicted between him and himself in his desire to improve in order to attract and keep Daisy

"I found out what your 'drug-stores' were." He turned to us and spoke rapidly. "He and this Wolfsheim bought up a lot of side-street drug-stores here and in Chicago and sold grain alcohol over the counter. That's one of his little stunts. I picked him for a bootlegger the first time I saw him, and I wasn't far wrong."

"What about it?" said Gatsby politely. "I guess your friend Walter Chase wasn't too proud to come in on it." (284-85)
The Prince of Cumberland! that is a step
On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap,
For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires, Let not light see my black and deep desires;
The eye wink at the hand; yet let that be
Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see.

I conjure you by that which you profess—
Howe'er you come to know it—answer me.
Though you untie the winds and let them fight
Against the churches, though the yeasty waves
Confound and swallow navigation up,
Though bladed corn be lodged and trees blown down,
Though castles topple on their warders' heads,
Though palaces and pyramids do slope
Their heads to their foundations, though the treasure
Of nature’s germens tumble all together,
Even till destruction sicken, answer me
To what I ask you. (4,1,50-63)
Nick becomes involved in Gatsby's extravagant parties and learns about Gatsby's love for Daisy
Nick finds out Gatsby and Daisy were lovers from 5 years ago and Gatsby wants her back

The Mosquito Coast
Person vs Self

''Once I believed in father, and the world seemed small and old. He was gone, and now I hardly believed in myself and the world was limitless'' ( 383)

Conflicted with what he thought of his father's values and what he thinks post Jeronimo
The Great Gatsby
Alllie: Characteristics
Macbeth: Characteristics
Gatsby: Characteristics
The Gist of It...
He is always found comparing himself to Tom Buchanan, a more wealthy man who happens to be Daisy's husband

"We went upstairs, through period bedrooms swathed in rose and lavender silk and vivid with new flowers, through dressing-rooms and poolrooms, and bathrooms, with sunken baths-intruding into one chamber where a dishevelled man in pajamas was doing liver exercises on the floor." (Fitzgerald, 92)
My father often talked of things being revealed - that was true invention, he said. Revealing something's use, and magnifying it; discovering its imperfections, improving it, and putting it to work for you. God had left the world incomplete, he said, and it was man's job to understand how it worked, to tinker with it, and to finish it.
Nick moves back to Mid-West
Power over Daisy and Tom has a big influence on his decisions
Gatsby and Daisy start an affair on Tom
Nick gets aquinted with New York, visits Tom and Daisy and finally meets Gatsby
"They shook hands briefly, and strained, unfamiliar look of embarrassment came over Gatsby." (75)
"He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say 'I never loved you'." (111)
He always cautions himself to other Nobles, Thanes or Kings who could overpower him
The Prince of Cumberland! that is a step/On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, /For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires;/Let not light see my black and deep desires;/The eye wink at the hand; yet let that be/Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see.
He craves power, however it earns him nothing in the end
She should have died hereafter./There would have been a time for such a word./Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,/Creeps in this petty pace from day to day/To the last syllable of recorded time,/And all our yesterdays have lighted fools/The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!/Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player/That struts and frets his hour upon the stage/And then is heard no more. It is a tale/Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury.
Signifying nothing. (5.5. 17-28)
Allie is blinded by power and craves it although it causes in his own death
Allie compares himself to other, making his family believe that he is better than God
" I tell ya, Charlie, I'm not going back into Hatfield again. I'm sick of dealing with people who want things I've already rejected, things they see on TV. They talk about nuclear destruction as if it were a game show topic. "
"I grew up with the belief... that the world belonged to him and that everything he said was true"
Allie becomes so pretentious that he drives his own family to turn against him and let him die.
