In Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and Shakespeare’s Macbeth both protagonists are pushed to their destruction by, as it seems, their wives. Both Willy Loman's and Macbeth’s relationships play very large parts in both plays. Love is blind and one partner is always blinded and naïve, therefore leading to one’s demise. Throughout both plays we see the change in the relationships because of events that occur, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth especially endure drastic changes in their relationship throughout the play, going from loving, to being manipulated into a selfish relationship that revolves around power and success.

The man, Jay Gatsby, uses Nick to get to Daisy, but that proves to be a fatal mistake after they run over a woman and the woman’s husband – now infuriated and delusional – shoots Gatsby for vengeance.

And I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.’ (Fitzgerald, “The Great” 3).Ferrysmawan says “this shows how Daisy thinks about life and how happiness can be bought by not being aware and presumably by having money and being fooled with it.” (Ferrysmawan ). Daisy always preferred wealth over love, she wanted to be happy with money, if she really loved Gatsby she would have waited for him but instead she married Tom because his money. Daisy also portrays the carelessness of the American dream in the situation of the killing of Myrtle and abandoning Gatsby just before and after his death.
