Myrtle also demonstrates these qualities by having an affair with Tom Buchanan. Another example of how shallow wealth has made some people is Tom, who is only interested in money and is unfaithful to his wife, Daisy. Gatsby dedicated his life to convincing Daisy Buchanan that he was worthy of her love and to winning her back from her husband. Gatsby’s life demonstrated how superficial the wealth made him and the affect of hypocrisy on his life. His wealth enabled his superficiality and he lost sight of what
When we are primarily introduced to her we can sense she may cause trouble among the men. She is described as having “full, rouged lips and wide-spaced eyes, heavily made up” it is clear that she craves attention and the only way she sees she is able to receive it is by acting shamelessly around the men. She is unhappy in her marriage and although she flirts with the other men what she wants is not an affair or a relationship but companionship.

In both poems gender conflict is demonstrated between through the emotion of betrayal in a relationship. For example in Les Grands Seignurs she talks about “little woman” which could show the great depth of thought about how she feels towards men.

Her self–centeredness and unrealistic perception of reality cause her to ignore her child, deceive her husband, fall into promiscuity, and go so severely into dept that she offers her body in payment. This same distorted vision of reality also blinds her from the intentions of those who use her. For example, she fails to see that Rodolphe is only using her as a sex toy rather than valuing her as a cherished lover. She repeated: “I have a lover! a lover!” delighting at the idea as if a second puberty had come to her.
Daisy’s voice was one of the main traits that kept her so intriguing and mysterious for Gatsby, which Nick mentions when he says, “there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget” (9). The excitement of her charming voice came from her affection for money, a trait of hers that Gatsby clearly dismissed until his tragic death. Daisy was most certainly a woman without mercy, which could be observed when she ran off with her husband after she professed her love for Gatsby, and shattered Gatsby’s dream of a happy future with her. Both women, Daisy and the Faery, can be symbolized as heartless demons that are in the form of temptresses, beautiful yet deadly. The main similarity and flaw that Jay Gatsby and the knight both have is their creation of a fixated, unattainable dream: a hopeful future with their idealistic lovers.
