Another example of Daisy’s carelessness is when Gatsby, a man she says she loved, dies, and she does not attend his funeral or show any signs of grief. In essence, she cares so little about anything that she shows no feelings about the fact a person she loved getting murdered. Her gets perfectly stated by Nick: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made” (Fitzgerald 179). Daisy feels like that because she has so much money and is part of old money, no action can impact her. No matter what bad deed she does, people will fix it for her and she will face no
Daisy is in love with Gatsby, but as war comes Gatsby has to serve his role in it. Daisy could simply wait for Gatsby to come home after the war, but Gatsby comes from a less wealthy family. She meets Tom, the heir of wealthy family, and she marries him. They have such a large desire to keep their money and status that they use others as if they’re there to serve them. An example of this is, once again, how Daisy uses Gatsby to get away with killing Myrtle.
Gatsby was infuriated to the things that Tom said to him raging through his mind. While Gatsby drove in the car with Daisy Gatsby was blinded by rage because he didn't see Myrtle and hit her and she died but he didn't care. But when Tom told him that the yellow car was Gatsby Mr. Wilson found his way to west egg to kill Gatsby, Tom was so blinded by jealousy he told Mr. Wilson that the yellow car was Gatsby's so he can kill him and never have to worry about him being with Myrtle again. This claim shows how dangerous jealousy can get when people get to caught in their feelings and someone's life can be
He tells Daisy “both of us loved each other all that time, old sport, and you didn’t know.” Jay left for the war and was far from Daisy but he came back a new man to win her love back. After Gatsby tells Tom that have in love with each other for five years. He just wants Daisy to leave Tom so they can leave and be with each other “It doesn’t matter any more. Just tell him the truth that you never loved him and it’s all wiped out forever.” Jay Gatsby is a good man that fights for love but the other characters use him for his wealth and pure intentions. The man would have done anything and did anything he could so he could live the life he had always dreamed of being with Daisy.
Tom, Myrtle, Daisy, and Gatsby were selfish and self centered leading them to become Morally responsible for the death of Jay Gatsby. Polo player Tom Buchanan had an ongoing relationship with George Wilson 's wife Myrtle that ended very dramatically with the death of Myrtle in a car accident as well as causing the murder of Jay Gatsby. It was not till this time where George started to realize that his wife was having an affair and this made him very upset as Nick says “He had discovered that Myrtle had some sort of life apart from him in another world and the shock had made him physically sick.”(Fitzgerald 130). Tom took Gatsby 's car to get gas at George 's garage on his way to the city to meet with Gatsby. While getting gas Myrtle saw that it was Tom in the car and was upset because she was locked in a room and wasn 't allowed to see anyone.
She also lost interest in her spouse as for her old college crush. Like Daisy, she got so fascinated with Gatsby she forgot about Tom when she was with him. Another character, Mr. Paul (Michael sheen) who cheated on his wife with Inez who was soon to be married.
The books are there just like decorations and collecting dust. The main reason he is doing something like this is to impress his lover also called Daisy. The girl who lives across the bay from him, he throws all these big parties, and have all these things to impress daisy his life long love. So everything he does is is for his one and only dearing Daisy. Although Gatsby is still a liar and a delusion.
I cannot believe how Walt is the one who supports me the most after I tried stealing his Gran Torino. It was a quite night sitting outside with my sister when my cousin’s gang arrived that night. I knew they were going to cause trouble and in less than a minute I got tackled and being forcefully dragged to the car, Luckily Walt was there with a gun or I would have been murdered by my own cousin. He protected us but he still didn’t like us then, we got told to get off his lawn. The following day my family had a party at our house and I sat in the basement in the corner not socializing, I was a quiet kid then an introvert.
Nick eventually becomes friends with Gatsby and discovers that Gatsby is in love with Nick’s cousin, Daisy. They nearly got married years ago but Gatsby did not have any money at that time and decided to wait. After meeting Daisy for the second time, they have an affair. After awhile, Tom is wary of Gatsby and tries to prove that the famous Jay Gatsby is not who he appears to be. Daisy becomes angry at her husband’s chauvinistic attitude and decides to leave her husband for Gatsby.
"… after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house—just as if it were five years ago,” (Fitzgerald 59). His obsession with Daisy led him to believe that what she had with her husband was nothing and that her love for him never ceased, even after all the time had passed. “I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn 't believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer cared,” (Fitzgerald 84). In the end, it was Gatsby who suffered the consequences of having an unattainable dream and never accepting reality for what it was. He spent his life imagining his future with someone who didn’t do the same, and when
This illicit relationship is quickly shown to be shallow as after Myrtle brought up Daisy, “making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” He also only thinks of himself after Myrtle is fatally killed, trying to figure out the best way to protect himself, and particularly distraught about her death. Nick and Jordan also harbor minor romantic feelings. Nick clearly states “I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.“ Jordan returns the sentiment after Nick breaks up with her. She says, “I don’t give a damn about you now” but that it was the experience of rejection that left her feeling “a little dizzy for a while.” Nick is the only one who fully understands Gatsby and so is the only one who can really love him. Gatsby fully reinvented himself, even
They are infact a lot like a man named Tom, Tom is married to Daisy who is also Nick’s cousin, and Tom is cheating on his wife Daisy with his mistress Myrtle who is married to Mr. Wilson. Nick had gone with Tom to see her and told Daisy nothing
This is obvious even before the wedding, as Daisy appeared agonized prior to the ceremony: “‘Take ‘em down-stairs and give ‘em back to whoever they belong to. Tell ‘em all Daisy’s change’ her mine. Say ‘Daisy’s change’ her mine!’ She began to cry--she cried and cried”(76). However, Daisy knew, in order to maintain her elevated status on the social hierarchy, she needed to marry a man of the same strata, so she married Tom Buchanan and, “didn’t say another word”(76). The discontent once again becomes apparent directly before the occurrence of the mortality-inducing car crash that killed Tom’s lover, especially demonstrated with Daisy’s venomous comment to Tom, “‘you’re revolting’”(131).
Gatsby was in love with a girl named Daisy. They had seen each other for sometime but then Gatsby had to go to war. Even though Daisy married Tom Buchanan, Gatsby never fell out of love with her. This is evident when it is said that, “Gatsby bought that so that Daisy would be just across the bay.” Gatsby would try and get her attention by buying that big house and having parties. “But of course I’ll say I was.” Gatsby said this proving that he would do anything to protect Daisy, which demonstrates how much he really does love her.
Gatsby is devastated by this whole thing. Gatsby 's major downfall was when him and Daisy began talking again, and Daisy ended up leaving Gastby for her husband Tom. Gatsby wanted Daisy to tell Tom, her husband that she never loved him. But, of course Daisy did not want to tell Tom that. On page 116, Gatsby 's says, “He wants nothing less of Daisy than that she should tell tell Tom, I never loved you.” Gatsby is saying that since he cleaned up the old man he was, Daisy needs to forget everything in her past.
