First, he obtains wealth, although illegally, to impress Daisy. Then, Gatsby shows his love for Daisy in many aspects of the book. The first time Gatsby physically makes a plan to meet Daisy and to tell her how much he loves her is when he asks Nick Carraway, his neighbor and Daisy’s cousin, to invite Daisy over for tea so Gatsby and Daisy can casually run into each other. After Nick agrees, Gatsby arranges to have Nick’s yard mowed and buys Daisy millions of flowers just so he can show her how much he really loves her as well as how wealthy he has become. Gatsby believes their love for each other has never changed.
Gatsby was so in love with Daisy that he would do just about anything to get her to be with him. He not only wants to repeat the past but he also wanted to erase the past so that it could make things better with him and Daisy. In The Great Gatsby and Winter Dreams there is a similar relationship with how Gatsby and Dexter are with the women they want. In The Great Gatsby, Gatsby spent his life trying to win over Daisy and would try everything he could to get her but in the end he just got hurt by her. Altogether the men trying so hard to get a girl just wasted their life and made them get
Gatsby would do anything for Daisy. This is supported by Nick’s observation, "For him [Gatsby], the money was a tool, not an end. Even a mansion means nothing to him without the love of Daisy" (Nagel 116). Gatsby cared so much about Daisy that he was willing to take the blame for killing Myrtle, even though it was Daisy’s fault. He also stayed in New York, to make sure that Tom would not hurt Daisy.
The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby is considered to be one of the greatest American novels of all time. This classic was written during the Jazz Age, otherwise known as the Roaring Twenties. F. Scott Fitzgerald loosely based this work on his own life and how he lived among the population known as the “lost generation”. During this time America’s population began to have a futuristic mindset. Excessive drinking, spending, and partying consumed them.
Gatsby always had a loving feeling for Daisy, even though she is in a marriage. This did not stop Gatsby for going after what he wanted. Gatsby tried very hard to get Daisy’s attention with the parties he had, but it never seemed to work. Every complication that occurred affected Gatsby greatly. I think that the emotional affair between Gatsby and Daisy killed Gatsby.
This is exactly what Gatsby does to attract Daisy, and like Gatsby, Kane gets it completely wrong. His second wife is becomes unhappy with all these gifts, and expresses to Kane, “you don 't really love me, you want me to love you!” This is precisely the sad truth about the protagonist. He has been chasing an idealistic dream in his mind, which might not actually even be possible, or exist; just like Gatsby. Kane 's wife leaves him, and he is left with one thing he does know and that’s “rosebud”.
In the book, Gatsby is very foolish, his actions are unreasonable and unrealistic. “He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: "I never loved you. "” (125) Gatsby had expected Daisy to be the same girl she was five years ago, but the truth is that she isn't. Many things had happened to the both of them and he had set up a foolish expectation that Daisy was willing to leave Tom for him. Gatsby’s foolishness originated with Daisy.
The reason for the parties is an endeavor of Gatsby to get Daisy to come to his party and see him and the power he has now. As Tom and Gatsby confront each other, Gatsby tells him that Daisy has “never loved you, she loves me”. From the moment Daisy showed affection back to Gatsby, he gained hope that led him to strength, which he uses against Tom as he stands up and tells him the truth that has been burning inside of him. Overall Gatsby was motivated by Daisy as she told him she did not want to marry a poor guy, eventually he became wealthy and powerful but he is helpless now since she is married and has a child with another
Gatsby has been in love with Daisy since he had first meat her but he never got to marry her because he went off to war. When he got back she had married Tom. Gatsby goes to great lengths to get Daisy to fall for him again. He had Nick invite her to Gatsby’s mansion for tea. He invited her to one of his partys, but nothing worked, because Daisy would never give up her life with Tom and her daughter.
