Jay then spends his life acquiring wealth to reach her economic standards, in hope that he can marry her and rekindle the happiness that he once had. His love for Daisy was impossible in society because "he was at present a penniless young man without a past?he had no comfortable family standing behind him" (156). Gatsby encounters his dream of love at this point of his life. He knew that at that time a relationship of love was impossible with Daisy due to his low social standing. Gatsby became determined to breach that gap between them in order to have a loving relationship with Daisy.
What is later revealed is that Gatsby’s wealth and luxurious lifestyle is all in the name of getting Daisy, Tom Buchanan’s wife, to fall in love with him. But in the end, even with all his money and power, Gatsby is not able to get the girl. What this brings to light is, was Gatsby’s money truly worth anything? “I love her and that 's the beginning and end of everything” (The Great Gatsby, Chapter ) This quote from Jay Gatsby shows that his entire life is centered around Daisy. That his only motive for the things that he does, for the massive parties that he throughs, for working to become incredibly wealthy, is to have Daisy fall in love with him.
She says, “The onl... ... middle of paper ... ...ike his true self, the one she had fallen in love with before everything, things would have worked out in the end. In the end of the book, no one gets what they want. Daisy stays with Tom in the end because of his wealth and because the real Gatsby she fell in love with is no longer there- he is simply a poser now. Myrtle had no hope of marrying Gatsby because he did not love her and only used her for sex. She couldn’t appreciate what was real, like the love of George.
It is evident that Austen did not like the general role that women took on in the early nineteenth century, with no financial independence and an expectation to serve the rest of their lives being a good wife and mother with only the accomplishments such as music and art, to excite them. I have first decided to comment on the relationship between Mr and Mrs Bennet. Mr Bennet clearly regrets his marriage to Mrs Bennet and realises that he was really only attracted to her beauty and wealth, rather than her personality. This runs parallel to the relationship between Lydia and Mr Wickham. Wickham eloped with Lydia only for her money because he was desperate to leave his debts behind and wanted a companion to join him in his escape, which resulted in an unhappy marriage, an arrangement made only to protect the family’s honour and respect among other acquaintances who would very much have frowned upon the elopement if it had not resulted in a marriage.
When Gatsby first met Daisy in Louisville, he had to lie about his wealth and social status in order for him to win Daisy’s heart. After Gatsby left for the war he knew that he must be rich upon his return if he were to marry Daisy. So Gatsby dedicated his life to making a fortune through unlawful ways in order to buy Daisy’s love. She has been dealing with her husband’s continuous infidelity, which is always lingering at the back of her mind. After five years, Daisy and Gatsby reconnect at Nick’s tea party, which proves to be very awkward in the beginning, but by the end, the two are talking as if they had never been apart.
The reason he wishes to relieve the past is because he had a love affair with the rich Daisy Buchanan, who he had, fell deeply in love with. However, he knew they could never get married due to their difference in economic and social statuses. He wants to marry her, but because of this problem he leaves her in order to gain wealth and social status in order to reach her standards. Once he reaches this goal, he buys a house close to her in which he tries to "impress her." Jay thinks money will take care of everything, in which he realizes it doesn’t make life out like it ought to be.
Unfortunately she had to just had ... ... middle of paper ... ...is married however to anyone whom is not her brother. This is a complicated situation because Mr.Bingley is very naive and let's Darcy and his sisters walk all of we him. Since they told he Jane and he should not get married because of her wealth he listened to them letting outside factors and money stand in the way of his true love for Jane. In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice there are a plethora of relationships that show how the institution of marriage can be complicated yet critical when dealing with money and love. We are influenced throughout the novel to agree with her attitude towards her contempt for society.
Therefore, a man who is supported by that amount of money would seem to be quite a catch, to someone with less money. However, after listening to him talk, it is quickly revealed that he is utterly ignorant. On the other hand, Charlotte is his complete opposite. Charlotte is an extremely sensible and intelligent girl, but she has little money. Although Mr. Collins could obviously never satisfy Charlotte as a husband, Charllote agrees to marry him for his money.
This isn’t what Daisy wanted at all. At some point Daisy loved Tom, and it’s very likely that she still does, regardless of all of his cheating. Living a life of riches for so long has affected her with affluenza, blinding her morals as it did to Tom. When someone already has everything they could ever ask for, they’re still going to want more. Something to work for, or else life becomes boring as Daisy points out many times in the novel.
While Jay Gatsby was in World War I, he was in love with Daisy. They were a loving couple, but Daisy left him because he was away at war and was also very poor. Daisy decides to leave him and marry Tom Buchanan because she wants a man who is wealthy. Gatsby is so determined to get Daisy back in his life that he moves to West Egg, a town next to New York City, to be near her. One reason that Gatsby's dream is never accomplished is because his wealth takes over his integrity.
