Later on in chapter seven there is a conflict involving Tom, Daisy and Gatsby. Gatsby encourages Daisy to tell Tom she never loved him, which she had most likely lied to Gatsby about earlier. She unwillingly replies, “I never loved him.” (page 126). Rethinking that answer she soon after takes that back saying that she did love both Tom and Gatsby. Although she has lied to them both, it is more likely that this is a lie she is telling herself.
The next morning, Ally did as if nothing had happened but her friend, Renee, knows that it will be hard for Ally to work with his old college-love, Billy.

Verbal irony is displayed many times throughout the story, such as when Chauvelin blackmails Marguerite, he says, “Your brother’s life hangs by a thread. Pray that the thread does not snap!” and right after that he adds, “Hope you sleep well.” Obviously no one can sleep well after someone tells them that their brother is about to die. Yet she also replies “You flatter me, citoyen.” Marguerite is actually internally torn between her love for Armand and her loyalty to the Scarlet Pimpernel. Verbal irony is also seen when Lord Grenville introduces Marguerite and the Comtesse to each other. They already know each other very well while when they were in France.
In the movie, this is not true. The boy also moves towards Blanche and they meet in the middle of the room. In the play, when Blanche moves in for the kiss, the stage directions indicate, “Without waiting for him to accept, she crosses quickly to him and presses her lips to him” (Williams 84). This makes it sound like the boy isn’t interested in Blanche and she comes on to him without his approval. While in the movie, the boy doesn’t resist her kiss and moves into the kiss and doesn’t try to stop.

The extract from Wide Sargasso Sea is where Antoinette finds out Rochester has been to see her half-brother Daniel who tells him of the madness within the family.

Gatsby’s growing disappointment throughout the novel stems from uncomfortable encounters with Daisy as well as interactions with Daisy that do not live up to his idealized dreams. Each setback, however, is met with renewed hope that his dream can be achieved. When Gatsby and Daisy meet for the first time in five years, Gatsby is initially embarrassed by their lack of chemistry.

This shows that Gatsby’s long running dream of reconnecting with Daisy was not shared by her at all.
