She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this. She would prefer to just deal with her unhappy marriage by not confronting it because she doesn 't want to deal with the consequences. In reference to Myrtle Wilson’s slaughter, Nick and Gatsby have this exchange, “ ‘ Was Daisy driving’ ‘Yes,’ he said after a moment, ‘but of course I’ll say I was…” (143 Fitzgerald). Gatsby is yet another person who protects Daisy from any consequences she may face. Daisy accidentally runs over Myrtle Wilson, something ironic in and of itself because Myrtle having an affair with Daisy’s husband, in a fit of emotions that she can 't control, and then doesn 't have to deal with any of the repercussions because she is protected from the by the men in her life.
In the novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I dislike Daisy more than Tom. I dislike Daisy more than Tom because she backed out on leaving Tom and going to live with Gatsby. Gatsby was trying to control Daisy because Daisy was getting discouraged, she says “ ‘Please, Tom! I can 't stand this anymore.’ Her frightened eyes told that whatever intentions whatever courage she had had, were definitely gone.” After all the arguing, at the end she turns to Tom so the whole situation can be over. She fails Gatsby and doesn 't do the one thing she had to do to make Gatsby happy.
During Myrtle and Tom’s argument, he breaks her nose for the sole purpose of sending her the message that as long as she continues to have an affair with him, her feminine power will not be tolerated by him. Myrtle is accustomed to living an underprivileged life where feminine power engulfs her, but Tom is too egotistical to allow Myrtle to speak with such authority to him. Similarly, Gatsby’s need for assurance from Daisy pressures her into revealing to Tom that she never loved him (Fitzgerald 132). Deep down, Daisy knows that she truly did love Tom once, but Gatsby’s assertiveness and persistence drives her over the edge to telling Tom that what the two of them shared meant nothing to her. Daisy’s attribute of being a pushover is revealed immensely because she refuses to stand up for herself.
First Lieutenant Jimmy Cross is distracted by his infatuation for Martha, which ultimately results in Ted Lavender’s death, forcing Cross to realize his fantasies for Martha are wrong and that he is not fulfilling his duties as a lieutenant. Lieutenant Cross is inattentive to the war and his responsibilities because he is unable and unwilling to stop thinking about his adoration for Martha. Along with his military gear, O’Brien states, “Lieutenant Jimmy Cross humped his love for Martha up the hills and through the swamps” (p. 115). Cross loves Martha, and “More than anything, he wanted Martha to love him as he loved her” (p. 114), but is unsure of whether she loves him back. Despite his uncertainty,
“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day”, the repetition and personification used shows the significance is to show Macbeth 's discontent with life. Life no longer has meaning, now that the love of his life is dead. This also shows he doesn’t realize the contribution she made into making him a heartless killer and that now he is possibly oblivious to it all. Macbeth at the beginning was valued and was genuinely a noble man, where as to this point he has let himself be misguided to become a man of destruction now called a “tyrant, bloodier villain, dead butcher”. Macbeth refuses to take responsibility for all the pain he has caused and he doesn’t want to die without a fight, although this is the finish to all of Macbeths destruction he does not want to kill Macduff “Of all men else I have avoided thee; my soul is too much charged with blood of thine already” this metaphor used is showing how he already has so much blood on his hands, he doesn’t need any more, this can be seen as slight integrity but he still goes on to fight even though its already known of his deeds, “They have tied me to a stake; I cannot fly, but bear like I must fight the course”.
This is especially shown in this scene when Daisy says, “Even alone I can’t say I never loved Tom,” (Fitzgerald 133). This is Daisy admitting that she loves Tom and it is this point that the dyad between Gatsby and Daisy begins to deteriorate. However, the deterioration really begins when Daisy is reminded of Gatsby’s identity of bootlegging and not coming from money. During the relationship, there is one affinity seeking strategy that is evident. The credibility strategy is seen in this dyad.
Another theory or psychology term that can be interpreted in the movie is different parenting styles such as permissive and authoritative parenting. Permissive and or Indulgent parenting is characterized by parents or guardians being too involved or interested in a child’s life, but at the same time they do not demand much from the child, such as having low expectations. Parents who use this type of parenting usually have few rules or standards for behavior. However if they do enforce the rules they are often very inconsistent or not really forced upon the child. Permissive parents also try to be more of a friend to a child rather than an adult.
He insists that Daisy tell Tom she never loved him. He feels that if she does this her relationship to Tom will be "wiped out forever"(Fitzgerald 132) and they will be able to return to what they once had, but the events do not unfold this way. She does tell Tom that she never loved him, but it isn't true and when she says it it doesn't have the effect that Gatsby was convinced it would. Her relationship with Tom
Her bully, Harold Barton, tends to say mean things about her not having a dad and her brother running away. This shows as Harold says “Face the facts. You and you brother are weirdos. And you got no dad” This of course brings her self-esteem down but Cedar doesn’t really care about what he says. She then realises that Harold can say all he wants as everything he says is because he just wants to hurt her feelings and she doesn’t need to even think about what he says to her.
Gatsby tells Tom the truth about Daisy and himself because Tom bombards him with questions when he says, “’She never loves 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
