For instance she wouldn 't marry the man she loved because he was poor, she practically forced herself to marry a man because of his fortune, she then became unfaithful to her husband because her past lover now had a great amount of wealth.
These new social norms, combined with the prohibition of alcohol resulted in a luxurious, over-the-top, and high-spending lifestyle. One character who embodies all of the characteristics of the “new woman,” is Daisy Buchanan, the wife of Tom Buchanan. In The Great Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan is portrayed by F.

Time can wear love down. Gatsby had it in his mind that once Daisy saw his riches and how much he worked for her she’d immediately fall in love with him. Though she did love him in the past, it’s been so long that she had already married and had a child with Tom. That feeling is still there but just his money isn’t enough to bring it all back and make her leave him. In the story Nick and Gatsby have a conversation where Gatsby says “"Can 't repeat the past?"
Gatsby’s purpose is to revive his dreams of the past in which he lead a life alongside Daisy. However, his goals of reliving the past are unrealistic and impossible since Daisy is a married woman. Gatsby’s attachment to his fantasy led him to make unwise decisions such as leaving the hotel with Daisy and letting Daisy drive. To Gatsby Daisy was perfection and was the driving force of his life. His attachment to the relationship he shared with her in the past led him to fall into uncertain business and rise in wealth.

James Gatz, the son of poor farmers in North Dakota, who was in love with a girl from an old money, rich family. He was motivated by the American Dream and his love for the rich girl, Daisy.

He took what he could get, ravenously and unscrupulously— eventually he took Daisy one still October night, took her because he had no real right to touch her hand.” (Fitzgerald, 149) Daisy is the heir of a rich family, a chance that is one in a million. This heritage had made her always have the comfortable presence of money, never going without. Gatsby was quite the opposite, where he was “ a penniless young man” (Fitzgerald, 149). Thus, Gatsby had realized this and had decided then and there that he would continue this lie of money, all in order to be the star in Daisy’s life.
Many people are willing to go to the extent of lying about themselves to a man or a woman to impress them. In the novel The Great Gatsby, F.
