Re: living in the past

Lorie Lawerence made this comment to one of my blogs: I think that the past is all Gatsby enjoyed. He is living his life to relive the past. He wants so badly to have what he once had with Daisy. I definitely would have to agree with this statement wholeheartedly. I feel that it is kind of a sad state that Gatsby is in that he only enjoys what happened in his past and feels he has to continually live his life in search of Daisy. Even if he was happier five years ago, he could try to better his future and make something of himself aside from his parties and wealth. He doesn't have to live in the past and make himself miserable; he chose that himself. I feel badly for him.
