F. Scott Fitzgerald. The Great Gatsby is about James Gatz, a poor farm boy who manages to reinvent himself as a man that is famous and rich named Gatsby only to be killed after an attempt to get back with his old love Daisy Buchanan reveals that love is complex. This theme is evident through the character of Gatsby and Daisy and the event when Gatsby was trying to confront Tom that Gatsby is Daisy's true love.
"They were happy, and neither of them had touched the chicken or ale-and yet they weren't unhappy either there was an unmistakable air of natural intimacy about the nature and nobody would of said that they were conspiring togtether" (Fitzgerald 140).
"You must know Gatsby? Damaged Daisy. What Gatsby?" (Fitzgerald 19)
"I'd been writing letters once a week and signing them "love Nick." And all I could think of was how, when that certain girl played tennis, a faint mustache of perspiration appeared on her upper lip. Nevertheless there was a vague understanding that had to be tactfully broken off before I was free." (Fitzgerald 53.)
"In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, 'he told me, " just remember that all people in the world haven't had the advantage that you had." (Fitzgerald 1)
"He had one of these rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it that you may come across four or five times in life." (Fitzgerald 44)
