In contrast to Barrett Browning’s expression of the imperativeness of nconditional love, F.
Scott Fitzgerald utilises the narration of Nick Caraway to demonstrate Jay Gatsby’s idealistic value of Daisy.
Furthermore, this implies that Gatsby and Daisy’s love is not the genuinely unconditional love referred to in Sonnet XIV by Barrett Browning.
In the Sonnet XIV the enjambment used by Barrett Browning in order to create audible interest, ‘love so wrought…
May be unwrought so’ conveys the idea that love, built upon a weak foundation, can be destroyed just as easily as it was formed.
This notion is portrayed also y Fitzgerald through the characterisation of Daisy.
Gatsby and Daisy’s love for each other exists with foundation of egotistical values appropriate to the context of the 1920s.
Through the use of the third person description of Daisy and Gatsby, the audience is given an objective view of their relationship.
’ Through the narration of an ‘objective’ young man Nick Caraway; ‘The Great Gatsby’ depicts the strong rejection of moral and spiritual values during the 1920s.
Fitzgerald uses his characters to divulge an attitude, by portraying the characters as superficial and materialistic, hiding behind a veneer of beauty but acking substance, as a reflection of society of the 1920s.
