Charlie would replace himself with a governess because he believes that his business job will not allow him time to raise a child. His good intentions are never questioned, but he is longing for a life that was lost in the past. Charlie is influenced by the guilt of possibly playing a part in his wife’s death and abandoning his daughter. He is trying to make up for that by substituting his love with material things, believing that money can buy happiness. It is obvious that Charlie is disgusted and mortified by his past, which is shown by these passages: “All the catering to vice and waste was on an utterly childish scale.” “His first feeling was one of awe that he had actually, in his mature years, stolen a tricycle and pedaled Lorraine all over the Étoile between the small hours and dawn.

Even though it appears that Daisy places importance on the values of love, she still chooses the status and comfort of Tom Buchanan’s wealth. In Tom and Daisy’s superficial relationship, the absence of love is evident by the lack of their communication.

The beautiful woman ran back to a man of money and prominence because she could not see Viktor as a member of her own “in-group”. In some ways she discriminated and used every excuse as a scapegoat reason for why she and Viktor could not be together. Unfortunately, this small sample is not far from the potential out- group discrimination that has led to racism. Viktor was blessed to not experience this type of bias, as he soon became part of every employee’s “in-group” after he saved the man who needed pills for his
People who have been cheated on will start to feel sorry for Bundy because they know how it feels to have to catch the one you love in the compromising situation. She then goes into a spill on how the man must have never loved her at all. She cries out, “didn’t love me ain’t no fool”. This is very logical because any man who has ever really loved a woman could not bring himself to being unfaithful. She goes into a description of how love has let her down and she will not be strung along, this builds pathos and ethos because she gets herself out of the situation by leaving him.
Her character is harshly judged from the start simply because she’s a woman and no one saw things from her perspective. Because of this, the reader is influenced to feel sympathy for Curley’s wife.

After he apologizes to her for saying he didn’t like her husband Claude reflects on Mrs. Meitner. Claude says he didn’t hate her husband because he made Mrs. Meitner happy but he hated Hitler for taking away her happiness. This shows how empathetic Claude was at such a young age. Even though he did not completely want to give up on the idea of marrying Mrs. Meitner he wanted her to be happy and “let her go.” This shows how Claude has traits that no other kid had his age. By seeing past Claude Brown’s bad boy ways of robbing, drug use and thuggish persona you see very grown up attitude of a kid not even in high school.
While still married to Wilson, Myrtle does everything in her power to try and imitate the life she sees Tom and his friends living. She attempts to throw parties, similar to Gatsby, but they are almost all failures that demonstrate how much lower in class then Tom she really is. In fact, it is her lowness in class that is what keeps Tom from forming a real relationship with her. Although Tom tells Myrtle that the reason that they cannot form a solid relationship is that Daisy is catholic, "it's really his wife that is keeping them apart…" everyone, with exception to Myrtle and her sister, knows that is not the real reason. A person of Toms stature would never marry a women from the Valley of Ashes, and Myrtle is too naïve to realize that.
