At the beginning of act two, scene two, there is a conflict between George and Beneatha after they get home. They have dated many times before, and when they were out this time, he tells her that he expects to have a more physical relationship with her, revealing his thoughts about education, that he sees it only as a way to get money.
When he tried to kiss her at the couch while she was trying to have a conversation telling him about her dream of becoming a doctor, she moved away and refused to kiss him. George gets angry saying that "he expects women to appear sophisticated but not to express sophisticated opinions" (C) as she's been doing many times, calling her moody and her thoughts stupid. Beneatha resolves it by ending the relationship calling him a fool. He wouldn't take her seriously and she could not change his mind deciding he is not the man for her.
This question refers to the book <em>The Great Gatsby</em>.
Nick is one of the main characters in this story, and he is also the narrator. We learn that Nick moved east from the Midwest in order to try his luck in New York. He wanted to become involved in the financial boom that was taking place during the 1920s.
Nick is initially impressed by the life of luxury and glamour that he witnesses in the city. This is particularly true in the case of his relative Daisy, and her acquaintances. However, as he becomes more involved with this society, he begins to see that people are actually quite superficial and false, and that their hedonism prevents them from forming any meaningful connection to anything and anyone. He is proven right many times in the story, such as when we learn about the superficiality of Daisy's attachment to Gatsby or the lack of concern that she shows for her daughter.
The correct answer is it draws a parallel between common swindlers and the townspeople they attempt to cheat.
Indeed, the author is using these characters to convey the message that Southern Society was extremely hypocritical since they pretended to be pious Christians and democratic Americans and yet defended fiercely the pecualiar institution of slavery. Furthermore, to the black slaves, they were akin to some kind of racial royalty and enjoyed a very monarchic supremacy over their slaves.
The Duke and the King are preying on such ethos in order to profit from it.
