However, he does not want to marry her: “[…] [I]sn’t it a mad thing I’m saying again that you’d be asking marriage of me” (TW I. 4). Likewise, Michael’s mother does not approve of such a marriage and she says: “[…] I never knew till this day it was a black born fool I had for a son” (TW II. 34). Despite the scorn of his mother, Michael eventually decides to marry Sarah because, like a bourgeois, he has patriarchal economic reasons for tying up his woman as wife as she earns a great deal of money.
Rather than seeking out love the correct way, they both use the one thing they have too much of and that is money, to attempt and buy it with everything they have. Gatsby throws his incredibly large parties to attract Daisy. But no money can buy love, so Gatsby ends up losing Daisy again when she ends up going back to Tom. He comes to realise that he will never achieve to have that ideal world he dreamed of with Daisy. Kane goes through the same experience, although he does not recognize what love is, he understands when he is not loved.
His attachment to the relationship he shared with her in the past led him to fall into uncertain business and rise in wealth. However, it was also his past that haunted him. Due to his unknown background Gatsby retained a mysterious and even negative background. As a result, Daisy would not choose to be with Gatsby because Gatsby was not the man who benefitted her and it would ruin her image to leave Tom for Gatsby. The moment Gatsby realizes that Daisy will not be with him, his dream dies.
Tom lies to Myrtle about Daisy’s religious affiliations to get out of marrying her, and Daisy can’t bring herself to completely cut ties with Tom to recreate the past with Gatsby. They never think of their partners and equals, with Daisy showing disdain for Gatsby’s parties, and Tom harshly reminding Myrle of her place in the lower class. They take away the choice of their partners, returning to their comfortable positions at the top of society, the position they were born into, when all is said and done. In the middle are the social climbers, who, although not born wealthy, try in their own ways to reach that status, and are ultimately thwarted because of their starting point; they struggled against the current of a harsh and indifferent world and got swept away. For example, Myrtle is a resident of the Valley of Ashes.
In Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship; she is having an affair with him and he psychologically oppressed her with his money and wealth only to get the idea he has of her as his “Golden Girl.” Fitzgerald’s argument is, when love is not the main reason for a relationship it will lead into oppression of women. All of these relationships prove how oppression is caused when love is not the main focus of a
She doesn't care about Gil or his feelings and she brushes the conversation off like it is nothing. On the other hand both Tom and Daisy cheat without a care in the world of the repercussions or feelings of others because they have no sympathy for those entangled in their ordeals. Paul is a parallel of tom in a way he believes his way is right and him being rich he also believes that his reputation is high and always on the line so he has to one up everyone to show his dominance. Adriana is in ways a parallel to daisy, adriana like Daisy is pursued by the protagonist as she is gils version of his dream girl. Both gatsby with Daisy and Gil with Adriana are examples of tragic love which were never going to happen.
She is physically coated in the laborious, middle class life she lives. Alongside this is the fact that Daisy leaves and crushes Gatsby’s hope. He did everything in his power to make her stay, but even the riches he wished to impress her with weren 't enough. She let Gatsby believe that she might leave Tom for him. Gatsby waits for
Showing the inequality of poor and the rich because many families were not able to do the same thing the Carraway. The American Dream believes that anybody able to become successful if you work hard enough. But that 's not truly shown by the example above giving the poor a disadvantage. Daisy who is crazy rich and the lover of Gatsby and the wife of pro footballer Tom tells a story about one of her butlers as an extra job was polishing silver till it ruined his nose because of the strong odors showing that wealth consumes the poor. The butler was willing to destroy his health for money, which is ridiculous.
Beneatha dislikes people who are assimilationists, an example being her rich boyfriend. George is a black American, but contrary to Beneatha, sees no reason to admire their African heritage. He views himself as an American first and considers not to be worth it to study their ancestor’s culture. After he does not take kindly when Beneatha cut her hair short before they were about to go on a date, she chooses not to see him anymore due to his assimilationist attitudes, even it it goes against her mother and brother’s hopes of watching her marry a rich
Shaw also questions “the desirability of a high social class” in life through Eliza’s father, Mr. Doolittle (LitCharts). However, Shaw does not accomplish this through what Mr. Doolittle says, but rather through how Mr. Doolittle gives his speech on the criticism of society. During Mr. Doolittle’s speech, he hilariously and frustratingly “laments all the anxieties and troubles that his new wealth brings with it” (LitChart) In doing so, Mr. Doolittle was trying to indicate how he missed his conventional, humbler way of life, even though his old way of life was undesirable to most people. By establishing this, though, Shaw was inducing the idea that upper-class society was undesirable; however, Shaw also made it seem like lower-class society was not desirable either earlier on in the play with the description of how Mr. Doolittle used to live prior to becoming wealthy. So, what was Shaw attempting to get across to his readers?
to do that now because he has money. He can afford a beautiful wife who can bare him with more children if he pleases. However, the part that is so shocking is that O-lan has stuck by Wang Lung’s side throughout his ups and downs. But as soon as he is wealthy again she is not good enough for him, he could have bound her feet an bought her oil for her hair and small things that could make her more beautiful but instead he found another women that was more beautiful. Then he yelled at her as if it was her fault that she wasn 't beautiful like the rest of the wealthy men’s wives.
He desperately wanted to be old money to impress Daisy so she would fall in love with him. Fitzgerald condemned the American Dream by showing how even though Gatsby became rich, he was not happy nor did he have a happy life. Tom Buchanan dehumanized Gatsby by how he thought badly of him because he was nouveaux riche. Tom was old money. Nick was also newly rich like Gatsby.
