Fitzgerald uses a more reflective style of writing meaning that he makes his characters reflect and the theme also includes reflection from the reader as well as the plot. On the other hand, Hemingway uses a more self-interest style with its theme, characters, and plot, meaning that he makes this book on his own personal experiences that cause the theme, plot and characters to differ in many ways. For example, the styles in which the characters are described are very different. Hemingway makes his characters less educated and from a lower social ranking than the characters from The Great Gatsby. Disclaimer: This work has been submitted by a student.

Great Gatsby Reflection
After eleven years of an unhappy marriage Myrtle sees her affair with Tom as an escape from the awful like she is living in. The fact that she knows so little about the upper class men and the poor judgement of her character makes her an easy target for Tom to take advantage of her. Tom would rather not leave Daisy because their marriage represents a larger meaning than only love it almost a symbol that show their social status.
Further, the last line is a metaphor. Nick compares human beings to boats moving towards a current that flows the other way. He explains the dreams of the future, pulled back by the anchors of the past.
