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.
Another example of materialism is Daisy and Gatsby 's relationship. “Daisy marries and stays with Tom because of the lifestyle he can provide her” (Wulick). This relationship is built on materialism, the only reason Daisy liked young Gatsby was because he lied to her into thinking he was rich.

Myrtle’s serious tone reveal how “crazy” she values status and wealth. Myrtle’s serious tone demonstrates how disappointed she was when she found out Mr. Wilson was part of the lower class. Fitzgerald shows how one’s American dream of becoming the wealthy class cannot be achieved due to greed.
