Though Gatsby’s weaknesses may outbalance his strengths, there is an up and down to everything. To begin, Gatsby is very naïve, his lack of judgement and wisdom do not work to his benefit. His naivety throughout the novel, blocks him from the true reality of who Daisy is. Daisy is a woman who thrives on the attention and wealth of others, she no longer loves Gatsby the way he genuinely loves her. This leads to him into taking the blame for Myrtle’s death, which he would not have done, if he was not protecting Daisy from the backlash.
One famous instance is Mary Wollstonecraft, who had a child out of wedlock and did not marry the father. Mary was self-educated and supported herself by writing fiction, non-fiction and translating literary works. But what truly makes her stand out was her 18th century book on the rights of women which she stated rights and liberties pertained to everyone, men and women. Another woman who vocal about women’s rights was Abigail Adams who did not hold back any when it came to expressing herself to her husband John Adams. Abigail implored to her husband as he was drafting the Declaration of Independence to not forget women who were a part of the new world and deserved a voice.
Even if one of the characters in The Great Gatsby was supposedly attracted to someone, it was for their status in society rather than their personality, attitude, and moral values. Because of this, many characters do not experience the feeling of love in their lives. Fitzgerald illustrates this absence of love through the shallow philosophies of the upper-class and wealthy characters in the novel. He displays this through the characters of Jay Gatsby, Tom Buchanan, and Daisy Buchanan. Jay Gatsby does not have the feeling the of love in his life, even though he is desperate to be with Daisy.
Rosaleen was an very strong role model in Lily’s life. The author Sue Monk Kidd portrays it in the novel in many ways.

In Tom and Daisy’s relationship, it shows that money can ruin relationships but if you see past that barrier of money there are little pieces of love that stand out more than money. However, at the end of the day Tom and Daisy have money, are united, but they are not happy with each other. Gatsby’s relationship with Daisy includes both money and love. By this Fitzgerald is suggesting that it is possible to have love, however, it leads to difficulties because you can either have the dedication of Gatsby trying to get what he wants and never give up, or you can accept reality and realize how you will not be able to achieve your
Othello shows a much harsher view of women in society and even justifies a husband murdering his wife he assumes to be cheating. Trifles shows how women are not regarded as helpful to society and how men do not think they can be concerned with important things. Both plays views of women help to add to the author’s theme and make the plot more interesting to the
all throughout the play, she is questioned for being immortal due to the quickness of her marriage; it seems as though she has no sympathy towards the death of her husband and could not wait to jump into another marriage with Claudius. Hamlet realizes this and says "O, most wicked speed, to post/ with such dexterity to incestuous sheets!" (1.2.161-132). Hamlet has a problem with his mother's sexuality. It's not that he's disgusted by Gertrude's marriage to Claudius, but the fact that he can't stand to think she is having sex.
While Blanche may not be the best interaction to prove this as Stanley's malignant feelings mainly stem from their different backgrounds and ideals, his interactions with Stella prove more. Whenever Stella attempts to scold or yell at Stanley, he completely shuts her down. When she, Blanche, and Mitch refused to turn off the radio, Stanley immediately turns to violence, throwing the radio out the window. While it can be argued that he may actually love Stella as he calls for her and sires a child with her, the general overview could be that their marriage is driven on lust, passion and desire, rather than true love. Also connecting with the stereotype of the 1950s, it was not common for a wife to leave her husband, so she may only be staying with him as she is still "blinded by
