Daisy behalf of the women whose physically attractive, but in reality there is no thought inside .They seemed to have a romantic time after Daisy reunion back to Gatsby,but Daisy is far less than Gatsby’s fantasy, although it is not her fault.Even when he found Daisy's voice is full of money, he still stubbornly refuses to give up this illusory dream. But no matter how Gatsby retain, in a brutal display, this dream finally slowly disappear , and then brought a tragic end to
During these times, Tom saw nothing wrong with his cheating. Although, when Daisy went out to have fun or when he found out she was cheating, he tried to force her to suppress (5) her actions. It never worked because Daisy was a free woman to herself; she would do what she wanted, whenever. Fitzgerald showed in the book that Daisy’s feelings fluctuated (4) between Tom and her secret man, Gatsby. She loved Tom, but she loved Gatsby too.
Gatsby loves Daisy and will do a lot to get her, even though that means using Nick for it, but he does try not to heart Nick’s feelings. Tom on the other hand, doesn’t really care about the feelings of athers at all. He will do whatever it needs to get what he wants and he doesn’t even treat the people he love worthy. He cheats on daisy and when Myrtle makes him mad he breaks her nose. Gatsby has a lot of self-control, he only loses it in the hotel when Tom makes him very mad, and that’s just for a minute or two, after that he can controle himself again.
However, in chapter 7, during the confrontation, Daisy quickly rethinks her decisions and states, ‘I did love him once – but I loved you too’. As Gatsby hopes and expectations of them being together breaks the audience starts to comprehend that Daisy contradicting statements is purely because she is afraid to leave Tom. Tom came from a wealthy family and was highly respected in society. Daisy knew that life with him would be luxiourous and entirely satisfactory in terms of respect and wealth. In addition, the author is trying to convey to the audience that Daisy is too secure in her marriage with Tom to even consider leaving it.
She loves the idea of Gatsby like his money and his materialistic things, but not in a relationship kind of way. Daisy is a very good actress, because she sure makes it look as if she is in love with Gatsby, but she cannot fathom to leave Tom and his money. When Daisy is told by Gatsby to say she is in love with him, she freaks out and loses it. Really, Daisy’s emotions are very unstable and she is much easier to read as a character at the end of the book. After the accident, Daisy did not bother to call Gatsby or even attend his funeral.
A primary example of this is George Wilson and his interactions with moral laws. Wilson faces the same problem that Tom does, in that their wives are cheating on them. However, George Wilson doesn’t have the status or money to be able to control his wife like Tom can. Therefore, he is forced to respond differently than Tom. Daisy wants to stay with Tom because he has the status and money that she wants so much.
The Modern age works reveal that love is an artificial, unrealistic desire as seen through money, status, and women. In the novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald characterizes a love as senseless false wish. In the end when everything was falling apart and they would have had to pay for the mess they created they ran away. “They were careless people Tom and Daisy- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.” Tom and Daisy didn’t care if they had hurt anyone because they had their money and thought they could just pay their way to get out of trouble. When people having enough
The main character justifies their reasoning behind the vile actions she has made. The antagonist never gets what they want, “They get the king’s son and the palace, and no more dishpan hands. Whereas all I get is the blame.” This confirms that goodhearted people always have a way to slide in and disrupt the evil taking place. This can relate to The Necklace, as the main theme of this text is the deceptiveness of people and objects. Madame Loisel wanted everyone to believe that she was wealthy, even if it was only for one magical evening.
Thinking that she can simply buy her daughter’s love and affection by giving her money to throw endless drug fueled parties. But it doesn’t work like that. A mother is supposed to care for and provide emotional support for her child, something Kim’s mother doesn’t. Demonstrating her own hollowness and immorality and acting as a symbol for the corruption of the upper class. As critic Peter Freese wrote regarding the parents in Less Than Zero, “parents, divorced or separated, occupied by their passing affairs, intent on their success in the Hollywood industry, and obsessed by their futile attempts at preserving eternal youth, have no time for and no interest in their children, have never provided them with a functioning value system, and try to absolve themselves of their responsibility by generously writing cheques, (Freese).” This couldn’t be closer to the truth about Kim’s mother.
Overall, Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the great Gatsby was great, but as all adaptations, it had its faults and its strengths during production. The song “100$ bill” by Jay Z for instance, was not incorporated well into the scenes as it could have been. According to Baz Luhrmann rap in a way was like a parallel to jazz in Gatsby 's period. Not to say that Jay Z’s music is not great, but the scenes that incorporated his music may have felt awkward to some modern day viewers. It just seems like on one hand Jay Z 's music may have been a good representation of rap in his time, but there was no sense of mysteriousness in his music as jazz was in Gatsby’s ago.
