Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him. Since Daisy married Tom, Gatsby is convinced that he must be as wealthy and prestigious as Tom to win her back, but that is not the case. Daisy once fell in love with Gatsby not for his money, but for the non tangible things he was able to give to
For them they felt like they were meant to be together forever,but they just had mixed emotions about How they really felt about one another. One thing for sure is Daisy stopped loving Gatsby a while back once he was doing this duty in the army.I feel like Daisy got tired of waiting for her lover or they forced her to find someone else and get married to start her new life ,Which was meeting Tom and having a baby girl. In the book it
As more is revealed about Gatsby in the Plaza it looks less and less likely that Daisy is going to leave Tom for Gatsby. Daisy isn 't able to convince Tom or anyone else at the Plaza that she loves Gatsby. So much so that Tom even insists that Gatsby ride home with Daisy. After Myrtle’s death Gatsby still hoped for Daisy to come back for him, it never happens and Daisy and Tom end up running away from the mess they made in New York. Myrtle ended up cheating on Wilson because Tom had the money that Wilson lacked, she felt like she deserved more than she was getting.
His dream encompasses his entire being and sense of self. The entire basis for every action he does is because of his intense love for Daisy Buchanan, and his entire reason for existence is stolen away from him when Daisy will not rebuke her marriage with Tom. Before Gatsby is killed by George Wilson, Gatsby dies internally to himself, because he has no real reason to go on living. Without Daisy’s love or the prospect of attaining Daisy’s love, he has no reason to continue being Jay Gatsby. He did not care about wealth, prestige, or fame, only Daisy, and once he realizes this will never be reality, he is plucked from his way of life into a brand new world.
So he really didn’t care that he was cheating on Daisy with Myrtle however he didn’t like the fact that Daisy was getting comfortable with James Gatsby. Monogamy was obviously a thing that wasn’t practiced at the Buchanan household. Love is a dangerous thing, in the end it could possibly be the death of you. Gatsby was just blinded by the love of a married woman. All he wanted was to go back to five years ago and relive it all over again.
Few days later, he left home for the war and his wife gave him a clothes belt and wished him to come back safe after the war. Even though Amelia was reluctantly that her husband wills leave home for the war but he has no choice and he has to do so for the war. During the war, he was getting to know that his wife was giving birth on baby in these few days. Unfortunately, he has serious injured during the war and unable to go back home to take care of his wife. Therefore, he wrote a letter to the doctor and asked him to help his wife delivered the baby yet the doctor replied him that the situation in the town was in the bad condition as there were many victims that attacked by the Yankees.
4 Jay; Journey From the moment he meets her, Daisy is the only person Jay wants in his life, but it was never meant to be. "He might have despised himself, for he had certainly taken her under false pretenses. I don 't mean that he had traded on his phantom millions, but he had deliberately given Daisy a sense of security; he let her believe that he was a person from much the same strata as herself..." (Fitzgerald 156). From this point on, Jay 's only goal is to win over the affection of Daisy. Everything he does is to gain her attention and love, but this is ultimately Jay 's downfall.
While Daisy is able to move on, Gatsby’s becomes even more passionate, and this quickly grows into an obsession. Despite how Gatsby may feel about Daisy, it is clear that he is never in love with her as a person; he loves the idea of her, the way she makes him feel: important, worthwhile, even valuable. Jordan reveals to Nick, “Gatsby bought that house so that Daisy would be right across the bay” (Fitzgerald 68). Gatsby’s obsession with Daisy forces him into social isolation. The extravagant house parties that Gatsby throws are for the sole purpose of attracting Daisy’s attention, but since she never attends them, he has no reason to take part in the festivities; his guests barely know a thing about him and base their judgement off of rumours.
She’s never loved you. She loves me” (Fitzgerald 130). Gatsby completely blind by his obsession with Daisy that he does not see that he will never get Daisy back and disregards Tom’s feelings. This shows that Gatsby does not care about anything unless it has something to do with Daisy. Not only did Gatsby lie about his parents being dead but he also lied about his name.
It is true that Daisy had loved Gatsby once, but it was all in the past. After Gatsby left to go to war, Daisy fell in love with Tom Buchanan. The reasons why Daisy married Tom was part of her love for him and the other part is because she loves the social position she is in when she is with Tom. Gatsby failed not because he was killed, but because Daisy’s love for Tom can not be changed with material things. All of the main characters have ideas for the perfect life and none were able to achieve them.
He was not “good enough” for her because he was poor while she was your usual rich girl who was only allowed to be with her “type” of people. James Gatz had to join the military which gave him and Daisy time to separate during this time period Daisy met many guys through this time she married a man named Tom Buchanan.Once Gatz returned from the war he found out about Daisy being married to Tom and he was hurt because he truly fell for her hard and this gave him motivation to try harder and do whatever he can to become rich so he could be able to meet Daisy once again and show her how much he has progressed and want her to return to him. Since Gatz wanted to become rich quick he started going
Gatsby holds parties in hopes that Daisy will attend and they will reconnect, but all that effort he put into making this home for Daisy was all for naught. Daisy did not deserve a man as giving as Gatsby. She toyed him for every penny he was worth. Gatsby cannot seem to get his head out of the gutter in regards to Daisy even though he is keenly aware of how manipulative she was. The green dock light was described as “ a minute and far away”, but Daisy was not the dream he should strive for to begin
“She might have loved him for just a minute when they were first married-and loved me more even then.” (152). No matter what he did, Daisy still stayed with Tom, and he was not satisfied with how Daisy was now opposed to then. He believed that he could come in and take Daisy back and everything would be just as it was, but instead it was a self-fought fight, and it was not the outcome he had hoped for. Gatsby wished to recapture a relationship with Daisy from the past, but now she was someone a little different mentally and emotionally. For years he spent the time to move into this magnificent house to show off the money he had collected, and when he planned the meeting with Daisy for the first time, he specifically wanted it at Nick’s house so Daisy could see just how wealthy he was, with hopes it would bring her back in some way.
