Unformatted sample text from the term paper:
When a person falls in love they may withhold particular aspects of themselves, aspects that ultimately empower them and in some cases create a sense of power over the loved
one. The following paper examines how love hides political and personal powers in the relationship of Gatsby and Daisy in F. Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby and the relationship of
Miranda and Ferdinand in Shakespeares The Tempest. Love and Power: The Great Gatsby and The Tempest In The Great Gatsby the character of Jay Gatsby is continually engaging
in everything he can imagine to gain the attention and presence of Daisy, his long lost love. He is a man who clearly hides his personal and political power in
light of the fact that where he obtained his money is a complete mystery to all. He was a poor child and a poor young man and as such could
never hope to have Daisy. He left this region and upon return, many years later, he was incredibly wealthy. The fact that no one really knows how he made this
money indicates he has some very deep and hidden powers. His presence in the book is also mysterious and illustrates a power. At one point the reader sees, for
example, how he constantly throws huge parties that are very elaborate and clearly of wealth. Yet he never really attends them. He prefers to watch, hoping it seems for Daisys
arrival. The narrator states, at one point, how he was "standing alone on the marble steps and looking from one group to another with approving eyes...I wondered if the fact
that he was not drinking helped to set him off from his guests, for it seemed to me that he grew more correct as the fraternal hilarity increased" (Fitzgerald 41).
