Gatsby know he couldn’t live up to her expectations of the life style she was accustomed to for he lacked wealth. Gatsby became a man who inspired himself to achieve to be among the American rich society and win the love of Daisy. He was not
As Gatsby puts his dream onto something unworthy (Daisy), his dream becomes less important as time progresses because it gets more and more unattainable. He puts so much stress on what he wants Daisy to be, rather than what she is, creating an infatuation in the idea of her, rather than the reality of her. Even Nick doesn’t believe Gatsby truly loves her anymore, stating that “he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy.” (Fitzgerald 110)His hopes spread past reality and reason. At one point, Gatsby believes he can repeat the past (Fitzgerald 110) and get Daisy back. Gatsby sacrifices everything he is, and completely changes himself for Daisy.
Love is one of the relationships that is portrayed in “The Great Gatsby”. A man named Gatsby who had went from being a poor man, became very rich. The only reason why he did all of this was for a woman named Daisy. Daisy was the women that he loved from the start, she is his dream, but since Gatsby had gone overseas, Daisy had decided to marry a man by the name of Tom Buchanan, mainly because he was much wealthier than Gatsby at the time. After Gatsby had found out what Daisy had done this affected him and crushed him because Daisy could not wait for him and had married Tom because Tom was of higher class than Gatsby.
"Can't repeat the past?" he cried incredulously. "Why of course you can!" (116) Gatsby cannot turn back time even though he has all the money and wealth imaginable to get Daisy. Gatsby may have been so close to achieving his dream, but failed because the dream he had was false.
He was a flashy celebrity who obtained wealth to impress the girl he loved most, Daisy. He fell in love with Daisy while he was a young solider, but when he went off to war they eventually split. When he came back to the United States, he finds that Daisy is married to another man, Tom, and figures the only way he can win her heart back is to become rich. He threw extraordinary parties to show off and
He wishes that he did not have to be in this position because, “Jay Gatsby is in love with Daisy, but is unable to pursue her…” (Thomson). Back when he was not as wealthy as he is now, Daisy left him and was not able to be with her. Gatsby has his mind set on living in the past, he says, “Can’t repeat the past…Why of course you can!” (Fitzgerald, 111). He thinks that meeting Daisy will set everything back in time, to when they were in love. Gatsby invites Daisy to one of his big party bashes and says to Nick, “I’m going to fix everything just the way it was before.” (Fitzgerald 111).
Unrequited love is a kind of love that can't be reciprocated or returned, even though it's usually desired. In the novel, one of the major characters, Jay Gatsby, has this sort of romance towards his old flame, Daisy Buchanan. When he went off to war, even though Daisy promised to wait for him, she couldn't and married Tom. Gatsby was poor and Daisy wanted more, desperate for affection. When Gatsby returned home, he did whatever he could to win Daisy's heart back and earned money and riches.
He worked so hard at convincing himself that he could recreate the past that he actually believed it could happen in his own mind. He hated his life as a kid because of the fact that he wasn’t rich. To Gatsby, the reason Daisy never married him was because he wasn’t wealthy, like Tom was. This triggered Gatsby to have a life goal. This life goal was everything he worked for, his entire life revolved around doing anything he can to become rich, and once he was rich then he would once again capture Daisy’s love for him again and they would get married back in Louisville at Daisy’s old house.
This wealth and power makes him believe he should get whomever he chooses. He is a compatible match with Daisy because she too is of old wealth and they both are looking for a higher social status, and not true love. Gatsby knowing that most people in his era were all about social status and wealth, made people think that he was of old wealth by throwing extravagant parties. This also made the impression that he
