Do you like my house Daisy? I always keep it full of the most interesting people. It cost a fortune!
Daisy vs. Society
I’ve experienced heartbreak and disappointment in my life, and I only hope that my daughter doesn’t have the same luck.
Tom vs. Gatsby
Throughout The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby struggles with the flaw of materialism. He believed that in order to attain success, he had to own a mansion, throw large parties, and associate himself with well-known people to impress Daisy Buchanan.
Daisy Buchanan is a woman who was born into wealth. She is aware of the expectations society has of wealthy women during the 1920s, and struggles with meeting them. Daisy also knows that her daughter will be objectified and tells Nick she hopes she is a “beautiful little fool” (Fitzgerald 17).
