Initially, both speakers in the literary texts are similar because they killed their lovers. In Duchess, the duke that is the speaker says bluntly that he killed his last wife. As the speaker says, “I gave commands; then the smiling stopped altogether” (Lines 45-46). These lines mean that he told her to stop smiling, but she didn’t listen to him, so therefore he killed her, thus the smiles stopped forever.
Love is a mystery for many people, everyone has their views on what love should be and it is way more than just a definition in a dictionary.

Kane goes through the same experience, although he does not recognize what love is, he understands when he is not loved.

But, she too fails to fulfill his idealistic world and gives up on her career. Kane ends up buying a palace isolated and away from the real world. This is exactly what Gatsby does to attract Daisy, and like Gatsby, Kane gets it completely wrong.
So, how does love and money act as a motivator in the book? What makes the characters in the book motivated?

While Tom and Daisy at least try to appear happy and loving, Myrtle and George are hardly identifiable as married. Myrtle has lost complete interest in George and any life that she has with him, and runs off with Tom to live the extravagant life that she’s always wanted. Even before George and Myrtle were married, Myrtle’s understanding was that George was wealthy and powerful. Upon finding out that he didn’t have everything that she dreamed of, she stopped being in love with the idea of being with George, leading to an affair with Tom years later. “She smiled slowly and walking through her husband as if he were a ghost and shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye.” We can see the disinterest she has for George by comparing her attraction towards Tom.
Near the end, when Daisy hit Myrtle with Gatsby’s car, Gatsby wants to take the blame for it. Tom intentionally tells George that the car that had hit Myrtle and killed her belonged to Gatsby. George was filled with anger and went looking for Gatsby. While Gatsby was at his pool laying and some water bed looking at the sky, George came out of nowhere and shot Gatsby killing him instantly. Right after, George shoots himself.
Tom pulls over to investigate. He is surprised to find Myrtle 's body lying on a worktable. Tom learns the car that struck Myrtle matches Gatsby 's description. Tom already upset with Gatsby is now furious. Tom convinces Myrtle 's husband George Wilson that Gatsby is responsible for her death.
