Both of the stories have a man who is in love with a girl who they would do anything for even if it would hurt them in the end. “He couldn't possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do” (The Great Gatsby, 148). Gatsby didn’t want to leave or do anything until he actually knew what Daisy final decision would be. He would do anything to have them be together because he loved her so much. Gatsby would hold onto hope that they would be together and he would keep trying everything possible to try to win her love even though it would hurt him.
For instance, Myrtle Wilson had an affair with Tom Buchanan because he was wealthy. Evidently, Myrtle wanted to have a wealthy husband because as she talks about her wedding, she was very upset, she said, “He borrowed somebody’s best suit to get married in… I lay down and cried to beat the band afternoon”(Fitzgerald 35). Despite the harsh attack Tom had towards her, Myrtle still wanted him over her husband who loved her, but just was not wealthy. Sadly, her wishes would never come true because Tom had no intention of marrying Myrtle. The book The Great Gatsby demonstrates how the American Dream is corrupt.
Romance comes in all different forms and sizes, and Calbert understands that along with these she apprends why people fall in and out of love. Falling in love has a sense of vulnerability that requires taking risks that people are “willing to fail, / why we will still let ourselves fall in love,” in order to sustain real love. Calbert ends her poem with listing the romances with her husband and vows, “knowing nothing other than [their] love” because that is all that matters to her
In fact, Mariane is really unhappy over the marriage to Tartuffe proposed by her father. She directly does not reject because she is afraid, even though deep inside her heart she wants to, but her only action at the time is to fall at her father’s feet and beg him to change his mind, and let her marry the man she was promised to and loves. In addition, Tartuffe's appearance is almost destroyed by the son of Orgon, Damis, he doesn't realize Damis is hiding while he is confessing his love for Elmire, the wife of Orgon. But lucky for Tartuffe, Orgon doesn't believe his son, not only that it yells at him but Orgon also voids all of Damis' birthright and gives it to Tartuffe. However, as the play progresses, Orgon's view of Tartuffe changes after refusing to see the fact that Tartuffe is a hypocrite and won't believe it until he sees it with his own eyes near the end of the play.
For example when she fell in love with Romeo knowing that he was a Montague and that the Capulets and the Montagues were enemies. She knew it was wrong and even then she said… “Thy Purpose marriage, send me word To-morrow”(Act: II Si), she proposes, knowing that he was a Montague and a family enemy. Juliet should have told her parents that she was married to Romeo when her parents told her she was to marry Paris. Her parents would have no option but to let them be together. Both her and Romeo were blinded to everything except each other and did not think before doing, for example, Juliet should have ensured that Romeo found out her plan, before she did it.
In the book The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald portrays and image of love versus infatuation. The relationships between the characters shows the struggle of an emotional connection in a world driven by societal pressures and money. Gatsby’s and Daisy’s relationship with each other is intertwined with each other’s love and lust, and is complicated with their other relationships, such as Daisy’s and Tom’s marriage. Gatsby is the “fool” in love throughout this whole endeavor and his week with Daisy, because of his constant search for love to fill the void in his life that no amount of success can. Gatsby’s complete infatuation with Daisy started out with them meeting five years back, and surfaced into a love affair.
This can also be seen when Daisy tells Gatsby, “Oh, you want too much!” (Fitzgerald 132). Daisy goes along with Gatsby’s plan to be together at first, but in the end she thinks twice about leaving Tom for Gatsby. The wealthy, even Daisy who professed her love for Gatsby, will never truly accept him as one of their own. Myrtle finds herself in a similar position because she believes Tom will leave Daisy to be with her. However, Tom claims, “[Daisy] is a Catholic and they don’t believe in divorce” (Fitzgerald 33).
Although Gatsby knows that Daisy is married to Tom Buchanan, he hosts dazzling parties and even “[buys] the [mansion] so that Daisy would be just across the bay” (Fitzgerald, 78). If Gatsby is to truly love Daisy, instead of destroying her marriage, he would have let her go. However, because of his extreme devotion towards Daisy, he dreams of a utopia where their feelings for each other is mutual. Thus, he demands her to say that she has never loved Tom to affirm that she loves him only, but Daisy does fall in love with Tom at some point in her marriage, in between the five years of Gatsby’s absence. Nonetheless, Gatsby does not give up.
Daisy proves to be easily swayed and shallow from the start, if only Gatsby could have foresaw it before it affected when he returned from war expecting to have Daisy. Before Gatsby left for war, Daisy promised that she would wait for him, however, when Gatsby returned, he found the situation to be different from expected, yet was willing to persuade her to come back to him despite her disloyalty. “Daisy cannot wait for Gatsby to return from war. Since she desires a love which is defined rather than limbo; she quickly accepts her new love in Tom Buchanan. Her decision is to marry Tom” (Marling 7).
He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete.” We can see here that Gatsby and Daisy had an unmistakable love and passion for each other before Tom and Daisy ever came to be. Something of this nature is hard to ever forget and move on from.
