The Emotions of The Great Gatsby
"You can't repeat the past."
"Can't repeat the past?" he cried incredulously. "Why of course you can!"(Fitzgerald 113)
"She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He was astounded. His mouth opened a little, and he looked at Gatsby, and then back at Daisy as if he had just recognized her as some one he knew a long time ago" (Fitzgerald 121)
"'I hope she'll be a fool - that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool" (Fitzgerald 22)
"I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was..." (Fitzgerald 113)
"The lights grow brighter as the earth lurches away from the sun, and now the orchestra is playing yellow cocktail music...laughter is easier minute by minute, spilled with prodigality, tipped out at a cheerful word" (Fitzgerald 44)
Romeo and Juliet
Uncaring as to who they hurt in their romance
Unable to see the results of their actions
Does not care who he hurts when repeating past
Gatsby is regretting his actions
Feels lost without Daisy
Lives his life with regret
David Copperfield's Mother
Widowed before David is born
Remarries a man who beats David
Sends David off to school
Regrets her decision to remarry
Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater
Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater,
Had a wife and couldn't keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.
Tom's heart breaks in that one moment
His life crumbles in the one look Daisy gave Gatsby
Agony of his wife leaving him
Trapped her as Tom did Daisy
Tom did not physically trap her
Khan : Star Trek
Khan is an alien from a planet that has superior intelligence and regenerative qualities
Feels he must wipe out all races that are not as advanced as his
Hoping that her daughter is a fool
So that she will not feel the pain Daisy feels
Shows the state of the times
State of women being ignorant and beautiful
Carefree laughter at an amazing party
Fanciful environment
Alice in Wonderland
Incredible scenes
Fanciful characters
Whimsical story
