Just tell the truth that you never loved him” (Fitzgerald, 84). Gatsby shows that he is greedy because he wants more love from Daisy. He is not satisfied with what Daisy has given him and wants her to say that she only loves him so that she can be his girl. He does not care about what one really wants. He believes that Daisy thinks the same way as him.
“‘Your wife doesn’t love you, said Gatsby. ‘She’s never loved you. She loves me.’” (F. Scott Fitzgerald 138) In this example, Gatsby was shouting at Tom and putting pressure on Daisy by pushing her into this argument about her affair. However, fundamentally the whole thing is related to Gatsby’s arrogance. He wants Daisy as a symbol of his victory like he reached everything he wanted.
Love can cause people to sacrifice everything for the one they care most deeply for, sometimes the sacrifice even results in death. In Shakespeare’s Othello, Desdemona and Othello secretly get married, causing an uproar from her father, who threatens her death for her lying. However, their love prevails and they move to Othello’s new position, only to have a seed of doubt planted in Othello. A man tells Othello that Desdemona has been cheating on him with his second in command which is a lie, yet Othello falls for it. The lie slowly tears Othello apart and causes him to ruin his marriage.
She is physically coated in the laborious, middle class life she lives. Alongside this is the fact that Daisy leaves and crushes Gatsby’s hope. He did everything in his power to make her stay, but even the riches he wished to impress her with weren 't enough. She let Gatsby believe that she might leave Tom for him. Gatsby waits for
“He looked… as if he had ‘killed a man.’ For a moment the set of his face could be described in just that fantastic way. It passed, and he began to talk excitedly to Daisy, denying everything, defending his name against accusations that had not been made” (Fitzgerald 134). In Nick’s recount of the incident, Fitzgerald’s audience experiences the regret that Gatsby felt after Daisy found out the truth.Mitchell also takes note of Gatsby’s lack of openness with Daisy, stating that, “If he loved her, he would want intimacy with her; but intimacy means knowing and being known, and Gatsby does not want Daisy to know him” (Mitchell 65). Similarly to the revealing of the criminal activities that Gatsby was involved in, Gatsby’s lack of “intimacy” can be reasoned with possible embarrassment, shame, and even worry that Daisy will no longer love him is she finds out information about him and his past. While it seems that Gatsby is considerably concerned with Daisy’s opinion, which can arguably be said to be because “He projects onto her a kind of royal status” (Mitchell 64) and thinks highly of her, the same
Heathcliff believes that by doing this, he will be able to make Isabella miserable which will in turn make Catherine and Edgar miserable. After being married to Heathcliff for a while, Isabella comes to the realization that her love for Heathcliff is only one sided and that he was only using her. She discusses with Nelly her hatred toward Heathcliff which demonstrates that his plan worked, “He says he has married me on purpose to obtain power over him; and he sha'n't obtain it - I'll die first! I just hope, I pray, that he may forget his diabolical prudence and kill me” (Brontë 127). Isabella’s unhappiness does not end up making Heathcliff’s situation better and overall he is still
This does not include the fact that she lead Gatsby on throughout the whole entire book. Gatsby gained feelings for this women that only wanted to get revenge on her husband. This action by Daisy is disgusting in the way that Gatsby loved this women so much that he was willing to die for her but all Daisy wanted was revenge on Tom for what he had did to her. Leading someone on, especially to the extent that Daisy does is utterly disrespectful. Daisy knows how in love Gatsby was for her and yet claims that she is in love with Gatsby also but is using him to get back at Tom.
This is exactly what Gatsby does to attract Daisy, and like Gatsby, Kane gets it completely wrong. His second wife is becomes unhappy with all these gifts, and expresses to Kane, “you don 't really love me, you want me to love you!” This is precisely the sad truth about the protagonist. He has been chasing an idealistic dream in his mind, which might not actually even be possible, or exist; just like Gatsby. Kane 's wife leaves him, and he is left with one thing he does know and that’s “rosebud”.
Juliet explains to her father that she’ll never marry Paris, this is because she’s loyal to Romeo and staying married to Romeo is what her heart desires. Then after Juliet refuses, Lord Capulet becomes enraged that she would even think to talk back to him in the way that she did. He becomes so enraged that he said “Thursday next/ to go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church/ Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither/ Out, you green-sickness carrion! Out, you baggage/ You tallow face/” (3.5.158-162). After this threat, Juliet is forced to take action against her father, even if she would have to disobey him and possibly be disowned.
When he first saw Daisy Miller he was utterly shocked by how different she was. Even though his aunt, Mrs. Costello, told Winterbourne to stay away from Daisy, he made it his mission to break down and learn all things about Daisy. Daisy was fond of Winterbourne as well. She saw him as a very close friend. But once Winterbourne saw how big of a tease she was and he was not getting the attention that he thought he should get from her and how she would be with men non stop, he stopped pursuing
On page 116, Gatsby 's says, “He wants nothing less of Daisy than that she should tell tell Tom, I never loved you.” Gatsby is saying that since he cleaned up the old man he was, Daisy needs to forget everything in her past. Gatsby had never wanted someone else. On page 125, Daisy had said she loved Gatsby. Gatsby had dreams to be with Daisy. That 's all Gatsby ever wanted was to have a relationship with Daisy, without her loving her husband.
F. Scott Fitzgerald uses Tom and Myrtle’s relationship to show how the poor are willing to do anything for money and status, and those of status flaunt their power shamelessly. In the story, Tom is having an affair with Myrtle, the wife of Wilson. “ It’s really his wife that’s keeping them apart. She’s Catholic, and they don’t believe in divorce. Daisy was not a Catholic, and I was a little shocked at the elaborateness of the lie.”( Fitzgerald, 33) Tom is an immoral person.
