Although she refused to face with the coming of the war, it can’t be avoid the war. Because of the war, her husband dead, and her father’s plantation didn’t be prosperous any more as before. For living, Scarlett started doing business, which was a strange thing for women at that time.
The era’s “perfect woman”, Daisy Buchanan, is a bubbly, conflicted woman whose choice is between two men: her husband, Tom Buchanan, and her former lover Jay Gatsby. Since Daisy’s character was written in the 1920s, women’s characters were based on the traditional women of the time period, and many women then were still seen as objects and as less desirable than men. When Daisy is invited to Gatsby’s mansion, her first sight of him in many years upon seeing his expensive clothing, she is so overcome with emotion that she begins to weep “with a strained sound” and begins to “cry stormily” showing her true reaction to something as petty as material objects (92). She continues, claiming that
Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, a writer who made more than $36,000 a year, wrote The Great Gatsby. As he says it 's the “Crowning achievement of his career.” Fitzgerald wrote many books before he had a heart attack at forty four unfortunately he died as a cause of that. Fitzgerald tried to produce a play and it failed as Fitzgerald described it as “The performance was a colossal frost.” The Great Gatsby has very little changes which includes name changes for example “Daisy” was originally named “Ada.” In this book some key ELEPHANT are that it’s more of a hopeless romantic plot that goes on, it could be considered a “lost love” although one man still is madly in love with a women who moved on and was married and had a kid. However this man went into the military and that was the last time they were seen, he never came back to his women but spent most of his life waiting for her to come to him. Before I begin I will discuss who are the main people in this book.
The second quote is from the same source as the first quote.”In defiance of the class difference separating them,he aspires high to this girl in the golden tower, the king’s daughter, whose voice is full of money.” Gatsby had enough ambition to build his fortune and someday win Daisy back. He moved across

They are both in love with Tom in a different way, Daisy is the wife and Myrtle is the mistress. As we get to know throughout the novel, both of them have an affair, Daisy meets again with her old love, Gatsby, and Myrtle is the mistress of Tom. Daisy comes from a wealthy upper-class family and she has been raised in privilege while Myrtle has to fight for everything she has. Myrtle is attempting to give the impression of a wealthy, high-class woman, but she does not have the figure of a high-class woman. She has a “thick fish figure” (25) which connotes that she is not a skinny type nor beautiful.
She loves him for what he stands for: privilege, wealth, affluence, social acceptability, class, and the finer things of life. She is an example of why the American Dream is foolish because the things that matter to her happiness are temporary; the things she strives for don’t ultimately lead to true happiness. Additionally, the book portrays Gatsby’s parties, characteristic of the 1920’s, as examples of hollow decadence. The parties were filled with alcohol (which at the time was an illegal substance), dancing, rich
The Great Gatsby:Character Analysis 1.Daisy isn 't one of the nicest characters in the book, money is a big priority for her and she lets others take the fall for her. Gatsby sums her up very well in a few words by saying “her voice is full of money..” (Fitzgerald 120) and letting everyone know she is very materialistic. Daisy is very selfish she thinks Gatsby asks too much of her when all he wants is her love. She is also a bad mother and uses her daughter, Pammy as something to show off at parties rather than taking care of her she says things to Pammy like “how do you like mother 's friends” (Fitzgerald 117). Daisy Later shows how she loves attention and playing games with Tom and Gatsby by not picking who she wants to be with, at a party she said to Gatsby “that she loved him and Tom Buchanan saw” (Fitzgerald 119).
She was shocked by the news and showed sad feelings in the story. However, when I was reading through the story, I could infer that Mallard had a terrible marriage life with her husband because the story later said that Mallard was happy because she had freedom. In the beginning of the story, she was shocked and sad but later on, she was happy because of in dependence. These evidences prove that she is a dynamic character.

The author thought that marriage was to be made of a combination of love, affection and compatibility of character, just as the engagement between Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Thus, she punished women who took wrong decisions when it came to marriage, as Lydia, who escaped from her family just to get married to George Wickham in a sudden and not very clever act – she clearly was decided just for passion and not for rational thinking. Jane Austen also punished women who got married for convenience, as Charlotte, who got engaged to Mr. Collins just to ensure her future and a stable economic status. At the very beginning, Charlotte Lucas was delighted for her engagement and forthcoming matrimony, but within a short period of time, she does not feel that happiness for her marriage, just as Austen declares in the novel: “his marriage was now fast approaching, and she (Mrs Lucas) was at length so far resigned as to think it inevitable, and even repeatedly to say in an ill-natured tone she ‘wished they might be happy ’” (Austen, 1813:
