This is a very nice painting representing Gatsby's mansion. His house means more than just a mansion. It represents the love he had for this girl and how much he would do to be with her. Sometimes people need to let go and I don't think Gatsby understands that, its sad but the truth. His house was not even a home. It was more like a everyday party house. Another symbol Gatsby's house could represent is grandness and emptiness of the 1920's. Gatsby justifies living alone by throwing all of these parties.
This scene in the movie actually got taken out, it is still in the book but it gives a visual of how they acted it out. Gatsby clearly shows truly inside he is not a wealthy person and Daisy is. Does Gatsby like women with money or does he like Daisy for her as a person. In my opinion I think that Gatsby just loves her not for her money since he has bought this mansion and threw all these parties just to try and get her attention.
This song is humorous but still relates to "The Great Gatsby". There are two women in the book that are in love with a little more than just the guy. Gatsby tells Tom, "She never loved you, do you hear? She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved any one except me" (pg. 130). Money should not be any sort of factor in true love. Gatsby says this statement his self which shows he even knows that Daisy did not want to be with him because he didn't have money at first. Also clearly Myrtle is a "gold digger" as well as she has an affair with a married man!
A new study finds people with higher incomes spend less time socializing than people making lower incomes. Spending less time socializing makes people unhappy and the statistics show it. Gatsby throws all of these parties in hope that Daisy will attend one. He just waits and waits , he never moves on. You can not spend all your time on a person you do not have. "Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be just across the bay" (pg. 78). This quote shows that Gatsby bought this huge mansion across the bay from Daisy all to get her back.
This article goes more in depth of many things that make people happy. People with more income usually comes with more stress. Gatsby faking his wealth does not make him a better person, it makes him a coward. Gatsby is a good example that money does not solve everything. He says "Her voice is full of money," (pg. 120) talking about Daisy which shows he is faking his wealth because what would a voice full of money sound like? If he was rich he would not say that.
This is a very interesting article talking about how getting more money just makes you want more. Money does not make happiness, it is the relationships you have and the people who are there for you. Gatsby thought if he was wealthy and got all this attention from the party's he threw then Daisy would come eventually and he could get her back and have the relationship they used to have.
