Money and position are too important to Daisy, and she is not willing to risk that to be with Gatsby. Daisy’s need for wealth is emphasized through saying that, “she vanished into her rich house, into her rich, full life, leaving Gatsby nothing” (Fitzgerald 82). In the past and present, all Daisy cares about is money. However, she is now sad that she did not stay with Gatsby all those years ago because he can now give her what she always wanted, money and social status. Daisy realizes that by waiting and disregarding her dream, it is now unobtainable.

In the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby, the author identifies a huge problem throughout the novel.

Daisy stayed married to Tom because of his great deal of money and assets, though deep down, she felt miserable and melancholy about the relationship. On the other hand Tom felt he could do as he pleased because of his physical stature and how much money he had. They would both constantly cheat on each other and have relationships with other partners, however they did not get a divorce due to their own selfish reasons.
Like some ghosts, Tony does not express that much emotion as he complies without getting frustrated at whatever Durante says. Like some types of ghosts, they are very anonymous as Tony does everything Durante says and does not bring up conversations but answers questions. This makes Tony anonymous as he is not very talkative. A ghost would rarely be spotted as they are only noticed when they want to achieve something. A ghost and Tony from “Wine on the Desert” are also very smart although they don’t display this often.

After she got married she could not get all those wonderful jewels that she had ever dreamt about due to lack of financial .Even her husband’s love and caring attitude cannot comfort and make her feel happiness. Moreover, she is blind with her desire and does not notice anything else. The terms of necklace, it shows us how people afford so much power and worthy of materialism, and it very expensive items for rich people themselves. It reminds us to avoid young lady Loisel’s concern for her external joys of life; such as love, health, and family. We can say that this short story is similar to a moralistic fable.
One example of this is when Nora only danced at the party to please her husband Torvald and his friends, Torvald also kept making her practice it so it would be perfect when it was performed and wouldn't hurt Torvalds reputation. Nora has sacrificed her happiness to make Torvald happy while he wouldn't do the same thing for her, at the time this was a common occurrence among men as evident the exchange between Torvald and Nora.“Helmer: I would gladly work night and day for you. Nora- bear sorrow and want for your sake. But no man would sacrifice his honor for the one he loves.Nora: It is a thing hundreds of thousands of women have done.” (Ibsen 63).

Gatsby as well as most of the characters in the book know that Tom is not good for her and she would be better off with Jay. Daisy is selfish, she doesn 't wait for Gatsby to get back from war. She thinks it 's better for women to be controlled and not have minds of their own. Most of the times she does not make her own choices, and when she does her actions are mindless and only help her needs. Jay is very generous and tries to help people throughout the book.
She loves the idea of Gatsby like his money and his materialistic things, but not in a relationship kind of way. Daisy is a very good actress, because she sure makes it look as if she is in love with Gatsby, but she cannot fathom to leave Tom and his money. When Daisy is told by Gatsby to say she is in love with him, she freaks out and loses it. Really, Daisy’s emotions are very unstable and she is much easier to read as a character at the end of the book. After the accident, Daisy did not bother to call Gatsby or even attend his funeral.
“‘If you want me to, I’ll put the old devil out of his misery right now and get it over with. Ain’t nothing left for him’” Carlson said (47). In the lyrics to “Relax, Take It Easy” (MIKA), it states, “Relax, take it easy/ For there is nothing that we can do”. Ths relates to this scene because Candy clearly didn’t want to put down his dog, however he was outnumbered in the room and he felt as if he had no other choice. He stared at the ceiling and stayed awake until his dog died, and rather than putting up a fight, which reminded me of the “relax, take it easy” lyric to the song.
