In F Scott Fitzgerald 's The Great Gatsby, Gatsby 's is deceitful because of his love for daisy which leads to his downfall, loneliness, and losing daisy. Gatsby chose his path of deceit because of love for a girl named Daisy. Daisy was raised to marry a successful and rich man, when Gatsby learned this he knew he had to find a way to make a lot of money, but he was raised dirt poor on his family 's farm and didn 't know how to make money or how to be wealthy. When the book starts Gatsby is filthy rich, but no one knows how he makes his money. He flaunts his money by having huge parties every weekend to try and attract daisy but he never seems to realize that parties are not even daisy 's scene.
As the novel progresses, Nick becomes friends with a man named Gatsby, who is viewed as a mysterious figure to outsiders. Nick finds out his second cousin once removed, Daisy was once in love with Gatsby. Unfortunately for Gatsby, Daisy was more focused on money and the social power, so when he went to war, she did not wait for him, and instead married Tom Buchanan who had lots of “old” money. This shows the moral decay of society because Daisy left a man she loved (Gatsby) because she could not wait for him and he did not have the money. The name Daisy itself shows moral decay because in the novel the color yellow symbolizes moral decay.
He replies with “I did, old sport, [...] but I lost most of it in the big panic – the panic of the war" (Ch 5). He lies about his background in order to help formulate a character in which Daisy can have a relationship with, which in this case is a man with “old money.” Furthermore, Tom is an ideal representative of the issue that is deceit. He takes part in an issue that is very common in today’s society, adultery. His affair becomes apparent in chapter 2 when Nick states that he “met Tom Buchanan’s mistress” (Ch 2). This is a grand form of deception, as he is married to Daisy but is having an affair with Myrtle Wilson, another married woman.
Tom talks about a book that clarifies "The Rise of the Coloured Empire," which is about how other empires will rise and dominate the white race. Tom and Daisy get defensive on the matter. Tom Buchanan, the so-called husband of Daisy, a wealthy man and a friend/relative of Nick by marriage, is a very arrogant man with few moral values, a devotee of white superiority, with a personality who looks down on people of lesser superiority to him in the terms against of different races. An abusive dominant partner to Daisy, he mistreats her by breaking her nose. Today, racism is still a major issue that occurs throughout the remote corners of the world.
George suspects the cheating, but never truly discovers what is going on before she dies. Tom lied to George as well in order to keep his affair secret. He then ends up saving himself and killing Gatsby by blaming Myrtle 's death on Gatsby in the quote, ”He ran over Myrtle like you 'd run over a dog and never even stopped his car" (178). He explains this here, “There was nothing I could say, except the one unutterable fact that it wasn 't true” (178). Over time, the consequences begin to take effect on George and his mental health goes downhill due to the shadieness of the upper class.
This could easily be proven by quoting what his sister, Carine, states about him in chapter seven. “Her son, the teenage Tolstoyan, believed that wealth was shameful, corrupting, inherently evil..”. This clearly shows that if McCandless did not appreciate wealth then the fact of people basing their happiness on wealth would discomfort him as well. Another example which sets the point a bit more clear would be when Krakauer states “ they didn’t flaunt their modest wealth, but they bought nice clothes, some jewelry for Billie, a Cadillac. Eventually, they purchased the townhouse on the bay and the sailboat.
The obsession of wanting love and money corrupts people's minds and drives them to do crazy things. In the novel, The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jay Gatsby is in love with a woman named Daisy Buchanan. Gatsby does everything he can to make Daisy happy, even if it is corrupt. Gatsby was a poor as a child, but grows up and becomes rich so he can make Daisy happy. Gatsby bought a house right across the bay from Daisy and her husband, Tom Buchanan.
He didn’t get it” (Fitzgerald 100). This made Gatsby mad because that money was his main goal in life now. “At once Cody, the Western tycoon, who is spending his money in the flamboyant style of the Gilded Age, becomes Gatsby 's image of a wealthy and successful man” (Way 89). This made him want to pursue riches and live a life of luxury just like
Tom was arrogant in his ways and put himself before others. Even though he claimed to be loyal to Daisy, he could not hide his mistress from everyone. Tom was a brute of a man and claimed to be part of a master race. His arrogance and neglection of Daisy and others end up getting him into trouble. Gatsby did everything out of love for Daisy and it was as if he had blinders on and could only see a future for himself with her in it.
“The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.” (Stephen King). The Great Gatsby told by Nick Carraway it is about Jay Gatsby, a man who has come from nothing to achieving great wealth by lying to innocent people like Nick. Gatsby's one desire is to be with the Daisy Buchanan, who is already married to Tom Buchanan. In The Great Gatsby a realistic fiction novel by F Scott Fitzgerald characters wear a mask to hide their wrongdoings when Tom has an affair, Jordan lies about a car she left out in the rain, and Gatsby lies about his real business. Tom Buchanan wears a mask to hide his unfaithful relationship with his wife.
Scott Fitzgerald uses Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship to represent how identities change in the pursuit of love, and how easily it can be taken advantage of by others. Back when World War I was raging on, Gatsby had met Daisy. They had quickly turned from acquaintances to lovers, but the relationship could never work.“ However glorious might be his future as Jay Gatsby, he was at present a penniless young man without a past, and at any moment the invisible cloak of his uniform might slip from his shoulders. So he made the most of his time. He took what he could get, ravenously and unscrupulously— eventually he took Daisy one still October night, took her because he had no real right to touch her hand.” (Fitzgerald, 149) Daisy is the heir of a rich family, a chance that is one in a million.
Though the Bush government told the media false information for cover-ups to protect himself in the corrupt acts that were happening during the war. Though we know our “friends” the Saudi Arabians financed the 9/11 attacks for the Iraqis, but because of their rich oil we don’t do nothing against them. Instead we send soldiers to die in country’s that have nothing to do with domestic terror attacks. Ever since Obama has come into office, he has not carried out any actions that he had promised during his campaign. Why didn’t Obama file charges against the Bush government?Bush cost the taxpayers hundreds and billions of dollars and committed war crimes.
The shifter looked and sounded menacing, but anyone who knew him understood he was probably ranting about the latest celebrity breakup or the fact they were out of the "boyfriend stealer" shade of lipstick on his favorite website, or even, how he couldn 't find the exact shoes he needed for an outfit. Resident Cal Hampton 's real problems were few and far between, but no one was willing to say to his face that his lack of boyfriend stealer wasn 't a "real" problem. So, he seethed, sprinting through the woods and practically foaming at the mouth. Granted, it was worse as of late. Every little thing chased him off into the trees to burn the excess steam that seemed to be constantly building inside him.
This shows the inequality of men and women’ rights. Daisy and Tom’s relationship end up compatible as Daisy chooses Tom over Gatsby because Gatsby doesn’t have the background and security Tom can offer; Tom says Gatsby is "a common bootlegger.” Also Daisy scared to get in trouble for killing Myrtle. She conspires with Tom to make Gatsby the one who pays for the accident.They are both selfish. Their conflict resolves as they
