    549 Words  | 2 Pages

    Twisted Love in The Great Gatsby In the story The Great Gatsby, many of the characters seemed to express what seemed like love.  I tend to disagree with this.  Daisy, Tom, Gatsby, and Mertle all express fake love to their significant others, but didn’t actually feel true love. Starting with Daisy, she married Tom because all that he had was money.  She was so aristocratic that she wouldn’t marry Gatsby while they were in love after the war.  All that Daisy seemed to care about was having
