Gatsby fabricating a false reality of true wealth to impress Daisy exhibits how greed is masked by Gatsby's love for Daisy throughout the novel.

If she did not feel comfortable ruling the country on her own and did not see Hamlet as yet fit for taking over, her motivation for marrying Claudius could have been focused on keeping her country under sound ruling. Maybe she believed that a quick marriage would allow for a fast recovery for the country from her husband’s death. I do not believe that Gertrude’s motives in marrying Claudius were selfish, or that she had any hand in murdering the king, but that she truly thought that a hasty marriage was the best option for her family or her country. When Gertrude has Rosencrantz and Guildenstern spy on Hamlet, she is again making a mistake for what she believes is the greater good. “Good gentlemen, he hath much talk'd of you, And sure I am two men there are not living To whom he more adheres.
