Essay All writers take special care in creating their own unique technique in which they develop their own thoughts and words to create their passage or novel. The Great Gatsby and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock have similar settings/atmospheres, plots and allusions. Although these works are written in different formats, they have a very similar meaning to them.

The setting and atmosphere of these two passages are very similar. They are both set in the 1920's, a period known to America as the roaring 20's which followed immediately after W. W. I. The mood is both quiet and pessimistic in both. The atmosphere in both is more reserved and formal. For example, " and time yet for a hundred indecisions for a hundred visions and revisions, before the taking of a toast and tea. This clearly displays the time of day when the lovers of both works meet is in the late afternoon for tea, and then goes out later that evening.

The plot of the Great Gatsby and the poem contain both a characters that is in love with an untouchable girl. This characters who asks themselves " do I dare let my feelings out to my love?" They are blind to see how much time they have before it is to late. For instance, in the Great Gatsby, Gatsby loves Daisy but is afraid to let all of his feelings out before he dies a tragic death. In addition, the poem demonstrates how a lover Was afraid to let the untouchable girl know how he felt, before they die. They are both unaware of how much time they have.

There are many allusions in these two works. In the poem, they discuss many famous people who have died very tragic deaths. For example, Lazarus died of Leprosy, Michelangelo died of a high fever, and Hamlet tragically died of poison. Furthermore, The Great Gatsby died a dreadful death by a gunshot.

This clearly demonstrates hoe authors display their own style with the same meaning in their written work.
