She doesn't care about Gil or his feelings and she brushes the conversation off like it is nothing. On the other hand both Tom and Daisy cheat without a care in the world of the repercussions or feelings of others because they have no sympathy for those entangled in their ordeals. Paul is a parallel of tom in a way he believes his way is right and him being rich he also believes that his reputation is high and always on the line so he has to one up everyone to show his dominance. Adriana is in ways a parallel to daisy, adriana like Daisy is pursued by the protagonist as she is gils version of his dream girl. Both gatsby with Daisy and Gil with Adriana are examples of tragic love which were never going to happen.
On the other hand, the whole think is not about pure love. It is about Gatsby’s greed. Daisy was his “object of desire” (Julian Cowley 81). The author emphasized that making love or kissing is not enough for Jay Gatsby he needs to make her own. “‘Your wife doesn’t love you, said Gatsby.

The American Family Myrtle and George Wilson were once two passionate lovers, caring for nothing else in the world but each other. However, Myrtle’s selfish aura led her to fall in love with not a man, but a thing: money. She became unhappy with her husband and decided to move on to someone more enticing, someone wealthy like Tom Buchanan. In the novel The Great Gatsby written by Fitzgerald, the Wilsons are discontent with their lives by portraying the theme of how when money is involved, they will become dissatisfied with one another and turn to lives of greed and selfishness.

Gatsby is ready to take the blame away from Daisy without hesitation. In contrast, Tom says of Daisy, “The trouble is that sometimes she gets foolish ideas in her head and doesn’t know what she’s doing” (Fitzgerald 138). While Tom is quick to point out Daisy’s flaws, Gatsby is quick to pin them on himself. In relation to the character foil, this difference highlights another irony in that Tom is Daisy’s husband but in the end it is Gatsby who dies protecting her. Tom’s lack of a moral compass sharply contrasts Gatsby’s humility, but Gatsby is the one who

But the way that Gatsby’s stealing other wife is just not right. And Daisy reaction is also not right too, love 2 guys at the same time.In my opinion, you can only give your heart to one people.I think that Daisy is being blind by the
Due to the lack of a loving relationship, the Buchanans cheat on each other constantly without care. Tom has an affair with Myrtle Wilson, who is engaged to George Wilson. Daisy forgives Tom for doing so because of his affluence: “Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time."

"The negative side of the American Dream comes when people pursue success at any cost, which in turn destroys the vision and the dream." In this quote, by Azar Nafisi, it explains how dreaming can be tainted by reality, and that if a person doesn’t compromise they may suffer. In the book The Great Gatsby by F.
