They share the same love for Daisy and try to win her heart by buying exotic gifts and providing her with a lavish lifestyle. One trait they both exercise quite often is the repetitive use of Nick. Tom uses him as a puppet to make it seem like he cares about Daisy’s family and also to hide the fact he is having an affair with

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. As for helen she was mostly a jordan parallel. You would see her at gatherings but she never provided much fuel for the story in comparison to the other characters.
In the story, Gatsby is at the first portrayed as a great man, until later the book goes on and his true colors and motives are revealed. As Gatsby invited Tom over to talk, he explains how all he wants is to have Daisy tell Tom that she had never loved him. In response “‘I wouldn’t ask too much of her’” I (Nick) ventured.
The primary source of all the misconception about Gatsby’s origins comes from his guests’ ostentatious rumors and stories. Everyone in West Egg knows of Gatsby and his over the top parties. That is what he is most credited for in West Egg, however, nobody knows anything else about who he is. Naturally, when people do not have the information they rumor and speculate about the truth and create their own version of truth from that. These ludicrous rumours and stories have caused many wild assumptions about Gatsby such as him having killed a man or him having been a German spy “somebody told me they thought he killed a man once.”
But the only problem is… she has a husband with a big ego. Knowing Nick is judgemental he sprung to Jay Gatsby’s side in this awkward situation between Gatsby and Daisy. Nick Carraway also thinks highly of himself and his traits. So when somebody is so irritable, he decides to see the little things about that person and just pick that character apart when he’s judging them. Nick brags so much about being honest, but
Immorality and Deception in The Great Gatsby The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald exhibits villainous human nature through the main character, Jay Gatsby. Since his past relationship with Daisy Buchanan and having not seen her in many years, Gatsby has developed an obsession with regaining her attention and rekindling their relationship. In order to accomplish this, he portrays a lavish lifestyle and makes himself seem like an ideal man: wealthy and wise.
He is ordered to the royal court, needing to explain his actions to Henry IV. At the same time, Prince Harry amuses himself in a tavern, joined by several criminals, and shows “a manner unbefitting royalty”10, making him a disappointment to his own father. One of Harry 's best friends is Falstaff, someone who makes a living out of stealing and lying, yet the young prince likes his presence though he often fools around with him, for example in a fake robbery which is only thought to be a joke on
Their main tactic is to steal from the rich and give to the poor, an act that has made them very popular among the common people while infuriating the regime. Eventually the authorities manage to assassinate their leader, but the organization emerges even stronger. Police officers Leo and Jin are tasked with eliminating the new leader, with their suspicions lying towards a blind dancer named Mei. However, a romance occurs that complicates the situation even
Although, Catherine was more attentive to what was going on, since she did not drink, and two, she used her brain a lot more than the rest. She did recognize the fact that none of the couples at the house couldn’t stand each other, and she was right. This exposed the novel because all the couples were shady and were hiding from their actual loved ones. Cheating and scandals and secrets occurred just for wealth and fortune throughout this book. The first party that happened in the apartment of Tom and Myrtles set the tone of the society that all these characters lived in.
Tom Buchanan certainly is to an extent hated not only by readers as he is sexist, racist and arrogant, but also by the other characters. Even though Nick Carraway – the narrator – is Daisy’s cousin and Tom used to be his college mate, he always throws hints to the readers portraying the disgust that he feels for his beloved cousin’s husband. Carraway always, from beginning to end of The Great Gatsby, coveys Tom through the use of bleak imagery, such as when he presents him as the owner of “a cruel body.” Through this specific personification, Fitzgerald may be intending to depict how every single part of Buchanan’s body presents evilness and perhaps, may epitomize him as if he were a monster. This sense that this character is even hated by a member of his inner circle, by one of his close friends may be evidential support of this hate that most characters feel towards Buchanan, and this happens to most villains stereotypically.
This causes sadness in Harry, leading him to get in a fight with Craig Randall over the snide comments made about the house, "even though I [Harry] agreed with every word. " This exchange shows how Harry must face the challenge of whether to go along with what everyone else says, or defend his family 's honour. Another example of the challenges faced through growing up from childhood to adolescence is of Harry 's classmate Johnny Barlow. Johnny’s family consists of a drunk father and a brother who has ended in jail many times, leading to the people in the town thinking that Johnny himself is, “Good for nothing.” Due to all the gossiping, Johnny feels that he must leave the town temporarily for he feels alone and disconnected.
On the other hand, his secrets were exposed and he wasn’t rich. He was in fact a phony person and tried to make everyone else idol him. For this reason, he always tried to take advantage of anyone and anything and if plans didn’t work, he would just pack up and move away to start fresh. For this reason, I found the Duke

Klipspringer is a friend of Gatsby’s who virtually seems to live in Gatsby’s mansion. He is “A man named Klipspringer was there so often and so long that he became known as “the boarder. ”—I doubt if he had any other home” (Fitzgerald).” As Klipspringer is often times found at Gatsby’s mansion, F. Scott Fitzgerald may be alluding to Klipspringers dependence upon Gatsby.
