“Winter Dreams”
This story was successful in its utilization of a strong character, and expressive script. The main character is Dexter Green. I believe the title of this short story, “Winter Dreams” is talking about the winter young Dexter spent mulling over his aspirations of being rich and transcending into someone worth being. Winter's affiliation with the deceased and sleeping predict outcome of Dexter's Winter Dreams.
The author shows Dexter's personality when he talked about how much poorer the other caddies were than him. By saying that Dexter's personality is displayed to the audience. The allegory of this quote, “poor as sin” establishes how he was disgusted just thinking about being poor. Fitzgerald also displays the character’s hunger to be ranked high over Dexter’s infatuation on rank, it’s shown when he says, “second-best grocery store.” The author uses Dexter's stuck-up attitude and obsession on rank to establish his ambitions during the story.
The author shows Dexter's inspirations by showing the true meaning of what Dexter's Winter Dreams meant through sequences of important involvements and meetings with her. Later he had become affluent, Dexter believed that by having the girl of his dreams he would be successful of his winter dreams. Although Dexter emanates from an upper-class family, he spent an ample amount of time during his adolescence mingling with people who were rich, for of his caddying career. The first time Dexter met Judy Jones, she was eleven. On the golf course, she was angry and hit her nanny swearing invectives. Dexter was only fourteen. From that moment forward, Judy Jones became a thing of his longing. He saw her another time on the golf course, Dexter was in his twenties, by this time he had now attained a lot of capital from the chain of laundries that he owned. Dexter’s wish for Judy to be his returned when Dexter saw Judy with someone else. The author displays Dexter's ravenous craving for something that is not his. Dexter was serenely playing some music while lying by the lake close to Judy's house and Judy drove up to Dexter on her boat. She told him that she had a guy at her house waiting for her, but she left because he told Judy that she was his “ideal” woman. Once they got done swimming, she invited him to her home to have lunch the following day, while he was there, he became upset because no one knew about him. Some...
