Why Was Young Gatsby Drawn to Daisy?
Young Gatsby had a deep devotion for the image he had crafted for himself. Though he was unaware of the real Daisy, he dreamed of a stunning girl from a wealthy class. She has no worries, and money allows her to indulge all of her wants.
Young flapper Daisy Buchanan was raised in luxury without ever experiencing any worry. She had wealthy admirers all around her and didn’t know what the impoverished went through. In his childhood, a simple and impoverished boy fell in love with her—a brilliant, lovely girl from a wealthy family. Daisy even appeared to be reciprocating. Still, he was unable to have the wedding that he so desperately wanted. Young Gatsby was penniless and lacked a name. Once he went, Daisy decided not to wait for him and wed Tom Buchanan instead.
Daisy has developed into a true passion for Gatsby. She embodies all he strives for in life, including love, success, and acceptance by everybody. Later, Daisy’s old-fashioned love erupts with fresh strength. It makes sense given that the youngster she knew has developed into a smart man. But rather than genuine love, she was motivated by caution and practicality.
Daisy was not genuinely loved by Fitzgerald’s protagonist. He fell head over heels for the vision he saw of her.
Gatsby was aware of the brittleness of the happiness he had found after making a deep impression on his sweetheart. He understood that the protracted spectacular was over. For Jay, the snug old dream world was gone for good, and suddenly existence had no purpose. For dedicating his life to a single dream, Fitzgerald’s hero paid a high price.
