Essay on Characters on The Great Gatsby

Daisy Buchanan is a wealthy stunning lady with a voice that is melodious. She’s friendly, easygoing, but difficult to meet. Her inaccessibility transforms her into Gatsby’s target. Still, after all, there had already been a gulf between them: Daisy had already married and had a child before Gatsby finally became wealthy.

The differences in ideals between them also holding the lovebirds apart when Daisy left her husband for Gatsby. Every next chapter of the book crashed through Daisy’s initial picture as an attractive lady, a mom, and a mother. Daisy is a lady who was conceived on her own day, vain and featherbrained. She is quickly excited, for instance, by Gatsby’s mansion’s lavish interior architecture, the large closet he owns, and his apparent grandeur in the eyes of her environment. Gatsby acknowledges that money sounds like the sound of her voice.

Tom Buchanan is an embodiment of one set of them. He is overly selfish, confident in his individuality, projects brute dominance, keeps on to his individualistic beliefs steadily, and is not timid in revealing his arrogance and narrow mentality. Much like his wife, Tom loved being of high status from his birth and gaining substantially from the financial position of his family. That’s why his values are largely determined by being rich and his views on society. The evils of other social divisions and even mortality (like Myrtle Wilson’s death) are secondary concepts for him that are not worthy of his consideration.

The Buchanan couple’s outward elegance is compared with the nastiness within them, their loneliness, and their narcissism. Tom, intrigued by the sparkles of the diamonds, will spend long hours gazing at the shop windows. Yet, he can’t, even for a minute, keep a serious thought.
