In F. Scott Fitzgerald's third book, The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald uses his narrator, Nick Carraway as a vital tool to comprehend the purposefulness of this story. Imagine having the story in some other characters point of view, a cynical and more sardonic point of view. Daisy Buchanan's point of view would simply all relate to her. If it does not it has no need to be conversed about or it has to change to something about her. Daisy's conflict is her love for Jay Gatsby is hindered because she is married to her also unfaithful husband Tom Buchanan.
“No, stop please be quit everyone. I can not take it anymore.”
My courage is gone and I do not know what to say anymore. I am at a total loss for words. Tom wont stop asking Gatsby questions, and Gatsby will not stop answering them as if I only love him. Gatsby needs to comprehend I do love him, although I also love Tom. I am confused and I need to get this to work out in my favor. I can not do anything but cry, I need to compose myself but I do not know how. Gatsby is confused; I can read his emotions like a book but he will not stop trying to convince me that none of this is true.
“Please Tom! I can not stand this anymore!” Tom insists that I take Gatsby's car home while he was shouting to Gatsby “ Go on, he will not annoy you. I think he realizes that his presumptuous little flirtation is over.”
Tom thinks he won't be a problem anymore and that his relationship with me wont live on. I looked at Gatsby and we left before anybody could say anything else. As Gatsby and I arrived at the car I asked him to let me drive, I told him it would help me clear my mind and forget about everything.
He told me “If it helps clear your mind so you can make the right decisions about everything and just calm down overall, then fine.”
I answered with only a nod. All I want to do is get home. I can not stop thinking of everything I do not know how Tom figured out my affair with Gatsby. Why should he care though, he has his little affairs? I even had to move because of one of them. I think I just deserve an apology from him and then he can be forgiven. My mind is thinking as fast as I am driving. I need to slow down its starting to get dark. Actually on second thought, never mind I want to get home as soon as possible I just want to be alone. Gatsby is staring deeply at me; I can see it from the corner of my eye. How can he still love me after all those years? I wonder how hard his life must have been with loving me and not seeing me. I can see the love in his eyes.
Gatsby suddenly asked “How can you love him Daisy? He does not care as much as I do.”
I told him I did not feel like talking about it and that I was in no state to talk about it. I could not believe my day was ruined. ...
