“‘Even that’s a lie,’ said Tom savagely. She didn’t know you were alive. Why- there’re things between Daisy and me that you’ll never know, things that neither of us can ever forget.” (Fitzgerald 132). Even when Tom knows that Daisy is cheating on him with Jay Gatsby, he contends his marriage and fights for her. After all the disputes and accusations, Tom and Daisy stay together and move away back to the Midwest.
She loves me.”(pg. 130) While trying to tell Tom that daisy never loved him Daisey began to tear up and told Gatsby that she did love Tom at one point to Gatsby that was one of the most heartbreaking things that Daisey could have said because he devoted his life to her while she was living her adventurous loving life with Tom. She later left Gatsby behind and went back to her comfortable life with Tom “she vanished into her rich house into her rich full life, leaving gatsby-nothing.”
In F Scott Fitzgerald 's The Great Gatsby, Gatsby 's is deceitful because of his love for daisy which leads to his downfall, loneliness, and losing daisy. Gatsby chose his path of deceit because of love for a girl named Daisy. Daisy was raised to marry a successful and rich man, when Gatsby learned this he knew he had to find a way to make a lot of money, but he was raised dirt poor on his family 's farm and didn 't know how to make money or how to be wealthy. When the book starts Gatsby is filthy rich, but no one knows how he makes his money. He flaunts his money by having huge parties every weekend to try and attract daisy but he never seems to realize that parties are not even daisy 's scene.
Like almost all fights it was over a girl this girl's name was daisy. Tom was married to daisy but daisy and Gatsby had a small fling many years prior. Gatsby was still madly in love with Daisy well Tom found out about this and he was furious even though he was having a fling with someone else. While Gatsby and Tom fought they tried to convince daisy to say who she loved more which is hard for her to say as shown in this quote”Even alone I can't say I’ve never loved Tom.”(Fitzgerald p.132) After a while Gatsby and daisy left in Gatsby’s car on there way back as they came back they accidentally ran over and killed Myrtle the women who Tom was having an affair with. The fight drove Gatsby to go back to solitude where he met his
Gatsby tells Nick, his neighbor, that Daisy did not enjoy the party and that he wishes she could just understand. He wants her to tell her husband Tom that she never loved him thus they can get married and have times back to the way they were five years ago. Nick proceeds to tell Gatsby, “I wouldn’t ask too much of her,” Nick ventured. “You can’t repeat the past.” “Can’t repeat the past?” he cried incredulously. “Why of course you can!” (Fitzgerald 118) In stanza two of the song “Grenade” by Bruno Mars this event is represented by the phrase “To give me all your love is all I ever asked ‘cause.” This phrase represents this event because all Gatsby wants Daisy to do is tell Tom she never loved him and that she loves Gatsby.
As the novel progresses, Nick becomes friends with a man named Gatsby, who is viewed as a mysterious figure to outsiders. Nick finds out his second cousin once removed, Daisy was once in love with Gatsby. Unfortunately for Gatsby, Daisy was more focused on money and the social power, so when he went to war, she did not wait for him, and instead married Tom Buchanan who had lots of “old” money. This shows the moral decay of society because Daisy left a man she loved (Gatsby) because she could not wait for him and he did not have the money. The name Daisy itself shows moral decay because in the novel the color yellow symbolizes moral decay.
The circumstances surrounding Gatsby and Daisy 's relationship kept them eternally apart. For Daisy to have been with Gatsby would have been forbidden, due to the fact that she was married. That very concept of their love being forbidden, also made it all the more intense, for the idea of having a prohibited love, like William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, made it all the more desirable. Gatsby was remembering back five years to when Daisy was not married and they were together: His heart began to beat faster as Daisy 's white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his
Due to the lack of a loving relationship, the Buchanans cheat on each other constantly without care. Tom has an affair with Myrtle Wilson, who is engaged to George Wilson. Daisy forgives Tom for doing so because of his affluence: “Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time." (Fitzgerald 251-252). Daisy was a trophy wife; Tom did not truly love her, for he is married to her because of her beauty.
Scott Fitzgerald portrays love as essentially impracticable fancy. When Daisy’s her daughter was born, her husband Tom was nowhere to be found. The nurses handed her baby to her and she said, “ I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” Daisy just like every women back then would just ignore the signs of cheating because they couldn’t do anything about it because they were defined by their husbands. Being a fool means her daughter realize that her husband is cheating. That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
Stanley, Stella’s husband, was not fond of Blanche. Because of this he hires someone to look into her past to see if she was who she was saying she was. While doing so Stanley encounters the ugly truth about Blanche’s past which she had been trying so hard to hide from her sister and Mitch, a man she was seeing and hoping to get married to. Never the less when Stanley exposed who she really was to Mitch he found her unfit and too filthy to introduce to his mother so he ended things. All of that was not enough for Stanley; he wanted Blanche gone so he bought her a bus ticket for her birthday.
