Willy died when he committed suicide, so his family could get the insurance money because he felt he would never be successful. He heard Biff tell him that he loved him and he felt happy but thought the only way his family could be happy was if they had enough money to live comfortably. He didn’t realize that his family needing him around was more important to them then the amount of money he brought home. “WILLY: You wait, kid, before it’s all over we’re going to get a little place out in the country, and I’ll raise some vegetables, a couple of chickens…LINDA: You’ll do it yet, dear”, (Act 2). Willy has a feeling that his selling won’t do well, so in order to avoid the fact that he is failing at being a salesman.
Gatsby and Daisy’s failure of a love story and the carelessness and the misplaced priorities of the wealthy all serve as examples of ways money and romanticism can negatively affect one’s life. The only character who seems to have any perspective is Nick, who had his father’s words of wisdom to guide him as he entered the new world of East and West Egg. “In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since. ‘Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,’ he told me, ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had,’” (1). He serves as a basis to judge the rest of these characters, as his less distorted view of the world contrasts so heavily from that of Gatsby and the Buchanans.
Nick in The Great Gatsby personified the dwindling hope of Americans as they transitioned into the depressing Modernist movement. Prior to the war, Daisy had envisaged a life of happiness with Gatsby, but he did not return from the war soon enough and married Tom instead. Wilson's demeanor after Myrtle's death was delusional, unstable, and almost insane, causing him to think it logical to murder Gatsby. No character in The Great Gatsby possessed a candor personality; all of them lied at one point or another. Gatsby felt that every moment away from Daisy was a tribulation, further driving him to find and marry her.
‘100 $Bill’ and ‘Young and Beautiful’ both spoke for Gatsby strongly as they were played in a manner to present him in separate lights and represented both his hopes and his fears. His disregard for riches is easily expressed in the song 100 $ Bill as he pays no attention to the amount he spends in the secret bar or on his extravagant parties, it also shows how he takes business as a pastime not a necessity. However the song Young and Beautiful, brings up how he wants Daisy to love him even when he doesn’t have the riches anymore, which is both a hope and a fear as he is unsure of how far she will allow their ‘affair’ to go. The song also brings up bringing her love to heaven with her, which can be said for Gatsby but does Daisy really want to go with him. He seems to bypasses her wants there as well as in the confessing of who Daisy really loves and we never see him ask her.
“My father had been a vaquero all his life,” (2). Gabriel only knew how to be a vaquero and did not want to give up his lifestyle until Antonio came into the world then he and Marie decides that Gabriel give up his lifestyle in exchange for finding better place to raise their family. But that did not mean Gabriel giving his dream to explore the Illano. “My father’s dream was to gather up his older sons and move westward to the land of the setting sun (14)”. The move and along with his older sons going to war made Gabriel sad and fearful of not accomplish his dream so he soon found hope in liquor to wash away the pain but it only fueled his rage.
His sole interest in the family farm was not one of genuine concern for the animals, but one of monetary gain. His character was manipulative, and when he could not use the art of persuasion to achieve his goal, he resorted to the enlistment of Penny’s husband to bend her will. Unfortunately, his scheming behavior worked against him, it only hardened his sister’s will. It was not until the tide began to turn that Hollis realized that he had a champion on his hands completely capable of getting the family farm out of debt and effectively off the auction
His family found the timing to be inconvenient and only a select number of people attended the ceremony. This is another way that Tristan is trying to deal with the grief that he has been handed in life. His reasoning for becoming married is that he could make a son that would replace his brother, Samuel. Tristan knew that this move was a selfish one, but he could not fathom anything else. He was crazy in love and the sad fact was that it was only because of the stress caused of his brother dying.
Troy states that his father was greedy and would put his own personal needs above the needs of the family. This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil. The way Troy 's father treated him would cause Troy to run away at a young age and would be forced to steal and rob.
Making it very clear to him that they are different and, therefore, won’t get along with each other. Being barred from relationships based on differences was the biggest source of frustration for Pip before he received his great expectations.

It was Pip’s anger towards the system and determination to change others’ perception of him that got him where he is. Pip tries to ignore this part of his life and isn’t able to see the pain that the convict feels even though he had previously felt the same
