Gatsby is famous for his huge, wild parties. However, the only reason he has them is because he hopes that his long lost lover, Daisy would someday attend. Jordan mentions how Gatsby "half expected her to walk into one of his parties," so that he could show her how rich he had become (Fitzgerald 63). This is an example of disillusionment because Daisy never came to one of them.
Tom, Daisy's wife is cheating on her, and Daisy knows it. However, Daisy thinks that this is a normal part of marriage, therefore, she believes that nothing good can come from it. Daisy mentions that she hopes that her daughter is a fool because "that is the best thing a a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool," because she won't be able to feel the pain of her marriage (Fitzgerald 17).
nothing good can come from marriage.
Daisy and Gatsby met and fell in love five years before now. Gatsby was in the army when he and Daisy met at her house. He was in his uniform, so you couldn't tell if he was rich or not, because he was very poor. Gatsby worried that the "invisible cloak of his uniform might slip from his shoulders" and that Daisy may discover that he is poor (Fitzgerald 149). Daisy is disillusioned because she thinks that you have to be wealthy to be in love, but you can easily be in love without money.
How can I love him? He is not wealthy!
