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.
Gatsby has his mind so remarkably revolved around Daisy that he has started to think illogically. He not only wants to erase the past but also longs Daisy to confess that she has only loved him. This would give him confirmation that repeating the past is obtainable. Gatsby reluctantly criticizes Nick on his way of thinking with the phrase, “Can’t repeat the past?... Why of course you can!” This passage shows how strongly Gatsby lusts for the idea that he can repeat the time in which Daisy only ever loved him and she did not have a family of her own.
His selfishness however, isn 't fueled by self-love but rather his ability to passionately hate those who cross him and his strong desire for revenge. Heathcliff has the capacity to love, in fact he loves Catherine more than anything else, but her betrayal and his rough childhood destroyed what little hope he had of becoming a good, honest human. After Catherine and Edgar 's marriage, Heathcliff is hurt and bitter. In order to get back at them, Heathcliff decides to pursue Edgar 's little sister Isabella. He is able to easily convince Isabella to marry him, but he really sees her as nothing more than a tool he can use to upset Catherine and Edgar.
When Desdemona marries Othello, she neglects to ask for her father’s permission for the courtship and wedding. Desdemona’s love for Othello is so blinding and abundant that she forgets to ask the most important person who loves her for a blessing. This neglect of her loyalty to her father bring shame upon her father which makes him appear that he has no control over his household, implying weakness in his leadership. Desdemona and Othello’s courtship seriously offends Desdemona’s father which puts the both of their lives at risk.
“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
However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame. Othello’s naive nature hindered him from seeking the truth of Desdemona and Cassio and finding out Iago had been lying the whole time. Iago may have been the cause of rumors, however Othello’s own doing ultimately caused him to suffer the consequences due to the fact that he did not communicate with his wife. He let a envious person control every aspect of his perception of his wife. He let a piece of fabric be the defining factor of whether or not his wife was faithful to him.
In the novel, Gatsby tries to convince Daisy to tell Tom that she never loved him so that they can be together, but Daisy cannot say it and mean it, so she takes it back and although Gatsby had just been rejected, he still tries to get her to be with him. The lyrics “oh my love, can’t you see yourself by my side/ No surprise when you’re on his shoulder like every night/ oh my love, can’t you see a child on my mind/ don’t suppose we could convince your lover to change his mind” (Tame Impala) describe the feelings Gatsby has for Daisy even though she is married to another man. The lyrics are saying that he wants the girl to leave the relationship and be with him so they can be together and start a family, much like how Gatsby wanted Daisy to leave Tom for him and run away together and start a family of their
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 shows how selfish Daisy actually is, she does not care about other people’s feelings and only cares about herself. Daisy denies everything that doesn 't benefit her, and in this case she is using Gatsby to get Tom
It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved any one except me!” Daisy also said: “ I never loved him” which is Tom “ I loved him once--- but I loved you too.” “Daisy is leaving you” said Gatsby “She’s not leaving me” said Tom Eventually Tom said “You two start on home,Daisy,” “In Mr. Gatsby 's Car” As you can see, Tom actually really loved Daisy and so is Gatsby. 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
However after a few chapters it is obvious to the readers that Nick’s perception of Gatsby has changed. Nick disapproves of his drastic actions to win back Daisy. An example of this is the quote, “He wanted nothing more than that she should go to Tom and say: ‘ I never loved you.’” This is obviously a drastic measure to take for Daisy and is unreasonable. However throughout the whole novel Nick stays with Gatsby and even facilitates him have Daisy cheat on Tom, and he remains Gatsby’s only true friend throughout
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.
Daisy ignores the fact that Myrtle calls Tom when she and Tom are at home. In contrast with Othello, he finds Desdemona’s supposed affair with Cassio intolerable whereas Daisy’s got to accept what’s going on between Tom and Myrtle. Similar to Daisy, Desdemona has to accept her husband’s action e.g. Othello murdered her, she says “Nobody, I myself.” Daisy and Desdemona has to accept whatever their husbands do. In Othello and The Great Gatsby time, “women were expected to tolerate what was going on around them and act like they don 't know much,” as Nick says.
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.
