It is a given that every piece of work that people read will contain all sorts of characters. Those characters can range from villains, victims, or venerables. In F.

When Gatsby first meets Daisy after their years apart, he is fearful of what could or could not occur, even stating that their meeting is “a terrible mistake”(87). When he first tries to relive the past, he internally realized that it is impossible, and with that realization, he tries to back out of the meeting.

When Daisy was eighteen she fell in love with a man named Jay Gatsby who was, at the time, a military officer. Throughout her life, Daisy’s beauty continually catches the attention of men as Gatsby, one of her love interests, describes Daisy “keeping half a dozen dates a day with a half a dozen men” well after Gatsby’s entrance into the war (151).

Gatsby was so in love with her that he went to the ends of the earth to get her attention to keep her as happy as she could be. Daisy is not in love with Gatsby, but in love with
