Perhaps I made a mistake with Gatsby and Daisy. She's all he ever thought or talked about. His obsession was becoming quite more obvious and I always feared that the outcome would not be great. Daisy was always too busy liking the attention and crying over designer shirts to realize that she and Gatsby were in danger. Instead she let the affair go too far and it cost the life of Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson.
Daisy Buchanan’s reality is very stressful and problematic, so she finds solace in coping methods that aren 't the most effective. “‘Oh, you want too much’ she cried to Gatsby ‘I love you now- isn 't that enough? I can 't help what 's past,’ she began to sob helplessly. ‘I did love him once- but I loved you too’” (132 Fitzgerald) She doesn’t want to deal with her loveless marriage and the fact that she still loves Gatsby too. She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this.
All of this eventually lead to the main proof of recklessness and carelessness shown by them in the story. When Tom finds out Daisy has been with Gatsby he decides to confront him. Gatsby tells Tom his wife doesn 't love him and never did. Tom asks Daisy about it but she doesn 't quite admit it. A few days have passed and everything starts to unfold even more.
This secret wish eventually leads to an affair with a woman named Julia. She also resents the Party, but not to the extent of Winston’s hatred of them. Their love affair is yet another form of rebellion against Big Brother, and demonstrates Winston’s struggle to gain his freedom. Winston’s defiance and rebellious acts are eventually discovered, and he is arrested and taken to the Ministry of Love. There he endures weeks of torture, interrogation, and brainwashing, but inevitably he gives up his struggle against the power of the Party and gives in to its total mind control as a loyal subject.
Dissatisfaction is also demonstrated in The Great Gatsby through Tom and Daisy’s marriage. Tom demonstrated dissatisfaction through his affair with Myrtle Wilson, wife of George Wison. Tom was obviously not satisfied to have just Daisy, and so sought out a mistress to satisfy his desires. Myrtle was not his only mistress. Tom confessed, “ Once in a while I go off on a spreee and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time,” (Fitzergald 131).
Conspiring to have someone murdered is immoral and caused conflict but like Gatsby, it was justified. He was defending his marriage, and had a personal vendetta against the man who tried to end it. If Gatsby never came along, Tom and Daisy would have had a life together. In the book, he is shocked to discover that Daisy is not completely loyal to their marriage. Although Daisy’s betrayal devastated him, he became determined to get revenge on Gatsby later.
After having established Petruchio’s ability to match Katherine’s wits in the Act II, Katherine and Petruchio’s wedding delves deeper into Petruchio’s blatantly abusive behavior toward Katherine. After Petruchio informs Katherine, “will you, nill you, I will marry you” (II. i. 263), she almost immediately sees his claims come to fruition due to her father’s disregard toward any of her feelings and opinions. Katherine and Petruchio’s wedding in Act III only further serves to additionally embarrass and weaken Katherine’s will.
Gatsby tells Tom the truth about Daisy and himself because Tom bombards him with questions when he says, “’She never loves you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me, it was a terrible mistake, but in her heart
Emily Dickinson is a depressed romantic. She falls in love with men she cannot have and her family constantly revised her poems; making them lose their meanings. In “Tell all the Truth but tell it slant” she says “The Truth must dazzle gradually or every man be blind-” (1,7-8). Dickinson has had her heart broken so many times by men and it was always delivered quickly and cruelly. Dickinson might have felt that if it was broken to her more gently and kindly she might not feel this way and feel so blindsided by her unrequited love.
Being an evil villain can lead to many horrible disasters and problems, especially when you have everything in the whole wide world, you feel entitled to be better than anyone else. Selfishness is the worst trait to have because no one will trust or like you. Sometimes people just care about themselves to get what they want. In the famous novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, he explains how money can drive people to being greedy and careless of others particularly their loved ones through characterizations of Daisy Buchanan. Daisy is a self- absorbed, vacuous socialite whose decisions lead to destruction of both Jay Gatsby and Myrtle Wilson.
Gatsby feels that he is allowed to assume her feelings and wishes because his wealth makes him worthy to love her again. He feels entitled to speak on her behalf and make choices that are not his to make, “‘Your wife doesn’t love you,’ said Gatsby. ‘She’s never loved you. She loves me…’She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.
