Daisy doesn't feel offended because of Tom's affaire with Mrs Wilson coz she seems that she doesn't care about it ....she knows about it , and i think she comfortable with what's going on since Tom is still able to provide her the same standard of living that she used to... she meets Gatspy again , she has an affair with him ....and she seems that she is enjoying her time ...amazed with the richness of Gatspy .....( coz he is richer then her husband)....and she seems very excited becoz of making Tom Jalouse of Gatspy in fact , she enjoys the situation coz it makes her feel wanted zena

How does F Scott Fitzgerald compare Gatsby in The Great Gatsby?

From Shmoop Lit on The Great Gatsby . The biggest Character Tool Fitzgerald uses with Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby is Speech. http://www.shmoop.com/character-clues/literature/f-scott-fitzgerald/the-great-gatsby.html . Speech and Dialogue Gatsby's effort to sound well-educated. For the most part, characters in The Great Gatsby are well-educated. Their speech and dialogue reflect this education, which in turn reflects their wealth and social status. The narrator takes note, however, of Gatsby's affected speech, speech of "elaborate formalities" that borders on "absurd." It is clear to him that Gatsby must practice to sound educated and wealthy - he must practice at being a part of Daisy's world. The fact that Nick isn't fooled would suggest that others, too, are not so taken in by Jay's efforts. His transformation to a man of high society is incomplete at best, and failed at worst.

I am interpreting the question in this way, as the book, character, etc. are not provided. What I remember from many years ago: if the character spoke of a party today which happened yesterday, then the character was recalling details like the quality of the music, the color of a stone in a ring, the taste of a beverage, the scent of a friend's cologne so vividly, the party was happening right now in their mind. (ex.-The party is grand, instead of was grand; the song excites me, instead of the song excited me) Another possibility- a narrator is explaining a character's point of view, in a similar way. (ex.-'He thought 'the party is grand'.)

Yes, he was Hemmingway's secret lover. There is no definitive proof that Ernest Hemingway was gay (not even secretly gay), bisexual, or just confused about identity in general.
