And rather than a luxury it became a necessity. In the novel Daisy says "They 're such beautiful shirts," she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. "It makes me sad because I 've never seen such—such beautiful shirts before." (Fitzgerald 92) This explains how Daisy reacted to seeing Gatsby 's fancy shirts. Her reaction was very overdramatic and shows how much expensive things mean to her.
Rather than seeking out love the correct way, they both use the one thing they have too much of and that is money, to attempt and buy it with everything they have. Gatsby throws his incredibly large parties to attract Daisy. But no money can buy love, so Gatsby ends up losing Daisy again when she ends up going back to Tom. He comes to realise that he will never achieve to have that ideal world he dreamed of with Daisy. Kane goes through the same experience, although he does not recognize what love is, he understands when he is not loved.
Consumed by sorrow and suffering destitution, Monsieur Lantin had no choice but to sell his wife’s fake jewel for a mouthful of rice. What shocked him is that those ‘false gems’ were all real and worth much money.

When she gets drunk, she considers changing her mind and marry the man she truly loves.

For example,” Gatsby’s eyes floated towards her, ah she cried, you look so cool(Fitzgerald 82)”. Love plays a huge role in the Great Gatsby and gives us a feedback on why you need love to have a happy ending. Not only that but to be happy is the most important necessity in doing that. Love plays a big part for daisy throughout time and really has great feelings for Gatsby and his large amount of money.

Round character in the story definitely would be Louise Mallard because she is fully developed and has a lot of emotions throughout the story. As I mentioned, she had a terrible time during her marriage time because she has no freedom and etc. However, as soon as she heard Brently died in train accident, she was shocked but mostly enjoyed it because she got a freedom and eventually died because of her joy. Because the story reveals a lot of her feelings in terms of freedom, developed and changed; she is a round character. The protagonist of the story is Mrs. Mallard.
Lantin, in this story he has complicated emotional changes. In the beginning of the story, he truly loved his wife, we can see in the context that after his wife’s death, “Monsieur Lantin’s despair was so great that his hair became white in one month”, “time did not assuage his grief”. However, life is tough, he couldn’t bear it, finally “one evening, finding himself without a cent in his pocket”, therefore, “immediately the thought occurred to him of disposing of his wife’s paste jewels”. After he knew his wife had affairs, even though he was ashamed he sold all the jewels and ignored the clerks’ sneer. I think, this is the power of money, it can totally change a person as time goes on.

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.
He provide his guests all of the luxury services. He eventually made it to the top class but still he haven’t reclaim Daisy Gatsby tries to invite Daisy to his house and to his party his bring up everything he has to Daisy. Until one day he confront to Tom that Daisy didn’t love Tom, told him that Daisy only married him because she waited Gatsby for so long and Gatsby wasn’t rich back then. “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 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.
Maupassant first shows irony thourgh Mathilde’s life,“The girl was one of those pretty and charming young creatures who sometimes are born... into a family of clerks… Mathilde suffered ceaselessly, feeling herself born to enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries.”(Maupassant, 1) Mathilde feels like she deserves all the luxuries in life, because of the sole fact that she is pretty, she had no money nor rank; she still believed that she should be wed to rich men, this is an example of situational irony. Maupassant also shows irony thourgh Mathilde’s actions, “Instead of being delighted, as her husband had hoped, she threw the invitation on the table crossly, muttering: ‘What do you wish me to do with that?’" (Maupassant, 1)This quote would also be an example of situational irony,
