Daisy displays her greed throughout the novel; she marries Tom Buchanan because of his wealth. Gatsby himself realizes Daisy’s obsession with money: “‘She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me’” (Fitzgerald 130).

However, these fantasies and dreams that she entertains herself with serve to prove how Orual cares about Bardia.

Furthermore, Daisy 's materialism reflects on her character. Daisy does not care for others, and she values Tom 's money over Gatsby 's love. The materialistic values that Daisy holds, therefore, ultimately corrupt her. Her corruption is further proven when Gatsby later describes to Nick Daisy 's car accident, "Well, first Daisy turned away from the woman toward the other car, and lost her nerve and turned back...Daisy stepped on it." (151).
Over time Gatsby’s dream becomes more about the idea of Daisy and being in love rather than Daisy as she actually is.

Furthermore, the irregularity of Medea’s situation stems from another characteristic of the play. Such feature is the intensity of her revenge.

The final similarity is Shakespeare’s use of ‘funny characters,’ those whose value seems to be nothing more than to provide the audience, usually the groundlings, with same base form of amusement. Lear has his jester, and the maid Margaret plays the part in Much Ado. However, often these characters will be given deeply philosophical lines and essential parts in the furthering of the plot, which go unseen by the average, non-academic viewer. “While we might think little of the buffoonery of a Nick Bottom or the witticisms of a Feste, Shakespeare, his contemporaries in the early modern professional theatre and especially his audiences, valued clowning highly – and scrutinised it carefully in its
