Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ is set in America of the 1920’s, a predominantly materialistic society revolving around wealth and status above all else. Fitzgerald depicts this obsession with money and luxury through complicated relationships full of trouble, infidelity and sorrow. The relationships Fitzgerald portrays all symbolize the materialism and hedonism of the age; each relationship is doomed to a certain extent based on the social class of each character.
Friendship, the most concrete connection that two people can have. Friendship is described as the strongest form of interpersonal bond between two individuals. I believe that friendship is about being there for him or her, trusting that person, and when something dramatic happens, that person is there for you. The friendships that are presented in Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby, are Nick and Daisy, Nick and Gatsby,and then finally the friendship between Daisy and Jordan. Nick and Gatsby's friendship though questionable in the beginning ends in something real and meaningful. Daisy and Nick are family, but don’t have a close relationship, Nick doesn’t like that she wants so much attention. Daisy and Jordan are friends of circumstance, seemingly only to the fact that they are both female and come from money. This astonishing novel is about a gentlemen named Nick Carraway and his narrative on his life at a very dramatic and confusing time. He travels to visit his cousin, Daisy Buchanan who is married to Tom Buchanan in the town called West Egg. Daisy and Tom are wealthy like Nick but unlike Nick, they are selfish. Nick meets a interesting man named Jay Gatsby who is also wealthy but holds many secrets. Gatsby befriends Nick because he has a fascination for Daisy and thinks he will get to be around her more. Daisy and Gatsby start an affair. Tom has many affairs but with one women in particular named Myrtle Wilson. Tom finds out about Gatsby and Daisy’s affair and tells George
He cares about her so much, yet Tom has been cheating on Daisy since the beginning of their relationship. It is made clear that Tom does not value her at all, so Gatsby does not deserve the pain he receives when Daisy chooses to stay with Tom over him, because of how much he loves Daisy.
Gatsby meets Daisy when he was a young military officer. He is just a poor guy. Daisy, also a brilliant and pretty girl just as a fairy, has the most romantic days with Gatsby. Obviously, Daisy impressed herself into Gatsby’s heart during that time. It seems that they deeply love each other, but actually, she is in love less with Gatsby the man, than with the Gatsby’s successful image. To some extent, she falls in love with the wealth of Gatsby. Clearly remember that Gatsby makes the famous remark to Nick before they moved to the New York,” her voice is full of money”.
When Gatsby first met Daisy, he was merely a poor boy with dreams much bigger than his wallet. Daisy was everything he could have possibly dreamed of: rich, beautiful and powerful. As his love for her grew, so did his ambition to give her whatever he could. When Gatsby acquired a lot of money by a chance encounter with a sailor, his first thought was of his heart. He had left it with Daisy. But, as seen in the book, love that is given yet not returned is poisonous. Although Daisy loved Gatsby, she was too obsessed with the American Dream to ever truly give him her heart. No matter how much Gatsby tried, part of Daisy would always belong to Tom and to

Daisy’s unfaithful actions led up to many tragic events in the story. She kissed Gatsby while married to Tom still. On page 122 it says “As he left the room again she got up and went over to Gatsby, and pulled his face down kissing him on the mouth.” This shows how unfaithful she actually is and how strongly she led Gatsby on by doing this. If she just told Gatsby she doesn’t want to be unfaithful to Tom and to leave her alone, maybe Gatsby would of stopped trying to get to her. Instead of being a good wife to Tom she flirted back with Gatsby. She also says “I love you now, isn’t that enough? I can’t help what’s past” on page 140. She claims she loves both Tom Gatsby. She has always been unfaithful because she went on many dates while Gatsby was in war. On page 158 it says “Through this twilight universe Daisy began to move again with the season; suddenly she was again keeping half a dozen dates with half a dozen men.”
Gatsby does not quite grasp the true concept of love. As Daisy and Gatsby first met and fell in love five years prior, they do not know one another. They know who each other used to be, but that is simply a depiction of the past. When the two ex-lovers reunite, Nick states, “He literally glowed, without a word or a gesture of exultation a new well-being radiated from him and filled the little room” (Fitzgerald 89). Before Gatsby meets with Daisy, he is already radiating with

After their fling officially begins, Gatsby has Daisy lying to Tom and he is convincing her that she never loved her husband. Gatsby thinks that by getting Daisy to realize her marital mistakes, she will simply leave Tom and marry him.

He has ended up emotionally unbalancing Daisy to the point where she accidentally kills someone. Gatsby then takes the blame like it was nothing with the thought that it is his duty.
