There is also irony in that Gatsby continuously tries to distance himself from his past and the lower class lifestyle, yet he spends the entirety of his life trying to rewrite his past with Daisy until he sees that she isn’t someone truly worth his love. Jay Gatsby spends his entire life pursuing a dream because of his love for Daisy Buchanan, unable to see reality. Daisy symbolizes how dreams can tempt people and blind them from the truth. Dreams often fail to live up to your expectations. Gatsby’s unfortunate demise and relationship with Daisy show that you cannot pursue dreams for the future if they are grounded in the
Money and position are too important to Daisy, and she is not willing to risk that to be with Gatsby. Daisy’s need for wealth is emphasized through saying that, “she vanished into her rich house, into her rich, full life, leaving Gatsby nothing” (Fitzgerald 82). In the past and present, all Daisy cares about is money. However, she is now sad that she did not stay with Gatsby all those years ago because he can now give her what she always wanted, money and social status. Daisy realizes that by waiting and disregarding her dream, it is now unobtainable.
Daisy choose not to go with gatsby for variceal reasons, but sometimes you have to realize that everyone don 't get their happy ever after fairy tale. She has to think a bit about her daughter and the big change for her new life.They both had an obstacle in front of them stopping them from their happiness his name is Tom Buchanan. Money can also be a big impact on those that want a fancy lifestyle ,some they just want the money so they live like a unhappy married couple or a family with many problems.The only thing gatsby want was daisy to himself but according to daisy “he asks for too much”. Overthinking everything that Daisy and Gatsby went through when they were young was just a one time thing to me. For them they felt like they were meant to be together forever,but they just had mixed emotions about How they really felt about one another.
Even when Gatsby points out all of the celebrities Daisy remained unimpressed with the party. Daisy’s motives in chapter six are to spend more time with Gatsby for the most part. There was no other evidence for any other motives throughout the chapter. Daisy, like every character listed above besides Nick, is in a love triangle with Tom, herself and Gatsby. Daisy’s morals are comparable to Tom’s in the way that she has no problem having an affair and is a snob most of the
Gatsby is arguing with Tom and says, “‘She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’ ”(130). Gatsby is trying to make Tom believe Daisy never loved him so Tom will back off and let Daisy go. Tom still tries to convince Daisy he loves her more than Gatsby does, even though he cheats on Daisy several
This reaction is strange because it is though that Daisy would have cried tears of joy that Gatsby is now back while she was at Nick’s house for tea and not over his materialistic objects in his home. Daisy is crying over his money and how she had the opportunity to wait for Gatsby years ago but instead married Tom. Since Tom was from old money and Daisy had knowledge that he could support her expensive and shallow lifestyle that she has been catered to her entire life. Another character that represents the corruption throughout the novella is Tom Buchanan. He flourishes in a lifestyle of absurd wealth empty of all morals.
She is also the reason he throws so many parties and bought a house across from her. Everything Gatsby does is driven by Daisy. Unfortunately, this results in his demise. Once he meets up with her again, he gets carried away from there, wanting her all to himself. At the Hotel in New York, Gatsby stands up to Tom and tries to convince him Daisy never loved him, and he so desperately wants to hear it.
Gatsby would do anything for Daisy. This is supported by Nick’s observation, "For him [Gatsby], the money was a tool, not an end. Even a mansion means nothing to him without the love of Daisy" (Nagel 116). Gatsby cared so much about Daisy that he was willing to take the blame for killing Myrtle, even though it was Daisy’s fault. He also stayed in New York, to make sure that Tom would not hurt Daisy.
