When Daisy killed Myrtle with Gatsby’s car, instead of taking the blame for it, Gatsby did. Gatsby took the blame for it because of how much he loves Daisy and because of Daisy’s wrongdoing Gatsby ends up getting killed by Myrtle’s husband, Wilson. Nick best described Daisy’s selfishness when he said, “ They were careless people, Tom and Daisy - They smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back to their money… and let other people clean up their mess.” (Fitzgerald
The relationship between Gatsby and Daisy is also built on wealth, but it also involves love, alike the relationship of Tom and Daisy. Throughout the book, Gatsby wants their relationship to work, but he mainly uses money to impress Daisy. Gatsby really loves Daisy because he will not stop trying to get her and Daisy also feels the same way about Gatsby because she shows her true self. However, on a closer examination, it becomes clear, that both Tom and Gatsby’s relationships with Daisy are based on money than love because money can lead to a destruction of love. However, both of their relationships with Daisy involve love proving
Keep this in mind. Finally, Zelda’s parallel, Daisy, is portrayed in a very unflattering way. Daisy only loves money, which is why she ended up with an abusive cheater. Daisy only takes notice of Gatsby, the one who parallels her husband, after she discovers his wealth. Then, when he dies, she doesn’t even attend his funeral.
One way Hansberry demonstrates the negative impact of greed is by Asagai’s response to an event caused by greed. When Beneatha is upset about losing all of the money from the insurance check, Asagai says, “... isn’t there something wrong in a house -- in a world -- where all dreams, good or bad, must depend on the death of a man?” (Hansberry 238). He explains to Beneatha that money does not define a person’s life and goals, and that if she has a dream she can still fulfill it as long as she is sedulous. Hansberry uses Beneatha and Asagai’s conversation to show the reader that money does not have the power to make a person’s future immutable; a person can achieve all of his or her goals as long as he or she works hard enough. Another way Hansberry elucidates the impact of being greedy is when Ruth goes to get her baby aborted and Walter says nothing about it.

Daisy left her true love to be with someone who would provide her with a wealthy life full of materialistic wonders. “She wanted her life shaped now, immediately – and the decision must be made by some force – of love, of money, of unquestionable practicality – that was close at hand.” (158 Fitzgerald) Daisy did not necessarily marry Tom for love, even though she may have loved him once, but she married him for his money and security. The only thing that Tom and Daisy shad in common was money, this is what brought them together and ultimately lead to Daisy chasing after Tom instead of waiting for Gatsby. Daisy loved the idea of Tom, rather that genuinely being in love with him. Daisy got caught up in the worldly things and ended up living a miserable life with a husband who cheated and whom she no longer loved.
"It makes me sad because I 've never seen such – such beautiful shirts before." (5.118-119) In this case, Daisy realized that with Gatsby being wealthy, she could actually have it all. But she also realized she did chose Tom, and now if she wants to pursuit she would have to get a divorce, a thing which consider the context of time back then was unusual and immoral. Daisy, as a woman, was always under the judgmental eyes of society, and she was never brave enough to break out of it, so she cry when she realized she actually had to make a rough choice between safety and actual happiness. Her choices in the following chapters have proven how insecure Daisy
Dahl implies Mary is in some sort of stupor before she kills her husband; she loves him and grieves over his death, and does not start planning the crime and cover-up until after she kills him. All evidence proves that Mary had no control over herself and did not mean for the murder to take place at all. When innocent people make mistakes, they often respond to them by worrying, hiding, and lying, even to the point where they are no longer
