Nick and Daisy are cousins, and Gatsby is a newly rich man who loves Daisy. Gatsby’s American Dream was to move up the social ladder and to reignite the love he and Daisy used to have a long time. He couldn’t make Daisy happy because his economical class wasn’t as high as hers. She wouldn’t marry him because he was lower than her. Like Karl Marx said, The rich will do anything for the poor but get off their backs.” This relates back to Gatsby and Daisy because Daisy didn’t help Gatsby go higher in social class.
His story may seem very inspiring to the common people, making him relatable. Both men match the definition of a “tragic hero” so far. They were both belove... ... middle of paper ... ... he wasn’t so power hungry after being elected the leader, he would have been remembered for the things helping the german’s rather than all the evil deeds he committed such as killing millions of jews, starting a war, and costing german soldiers their lives. You could at least feel a little pity for him, he did countless things to better german’s lives, but his other actions would eventually lead him to his downfall making him a tragic hero in my opinion. Macbeth and Hitler both match the characteristics of a tragic hero in my opinion.
it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful clothes” (pg.98).Gatsby believes his dream will come true because of all the money and nice things he has.

The Color of Money in The Great Gatsby A major aspect of The Great Gatsby was the effect that money has on each one of the characters. Money influenced Daisy’s love, it influenced Tom life, influences Nick’s wants, Jordan’s standards, and money also pushed Gatsby to get what he lost. The effect money has on Daisy is noticed from the beginning. She is married to a wealthy man in which she says she loves. The love for her husband is not the same love that she has had with other men.

However, Daisy came from a wealthy family, so in order to be with her again Gatsby has to create a house that will show off his wealth and make him appear to be worthy of Daisy.
