Spencer Hood1/8/2018English 9Mr. RobersonGreat Gatsby Paper When it comes to morally ambiguous characters The Great Gatsby by F.
Scott Fitzgerald does not fall short. This being said the character who stands out the most is Daisy Buchanan. Daisy is wife of a man named Tom Buchanan who is a friend of the narrator of the story Nick Carraway. Daisy is identified as a morally ambiguous character for a couple of reasons those being Daisy is cheating on Tom with Gatsby, she let Gatsby take the blame for murder of Myrtle Wilson, she is introduced as a sort of perfect figure and Gatsby’s love however he finds out she is merely another human. All these examples have a conflict and makes it hard for someone to identify her a purely good or purely evil.Daisy is cheating on Tom with Gatsby which on its face may seem like just a care free affair which would be considered wrong and bad conversely it could be seen as a way for Daisy to get back at Tom for cheating on her with Myrtle which she had found out about.
While affairs ae generally considered wrong and a bad thing to do one might understand it more if she was doing it as perhaps revenge of a way to get back at him and make him feel bad.
Having said that this may confuse the reader as to the morality of the character and it may further confuse them to the outcome of the book as a whole. “He nodded sagely. “And what’s more, I love Daisy too. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time.” (Fitzgerald, 131). This is a quote that perhaps exemplifies the point above where you see Tom start to become more emotional or guilty which plays a part in deciding the morality of Daisy’s actions. Daisy is driving with Gatsby back to his home on West Egg when Myrtle gets out in front of the car because she thinks that someone else is driving that she would like to talk to.
Daisy does not slow down and ends up hitting myrtle and killing her on the spot. She quickly continued to drive and never looked back. Gatsby decides to take the blame for the crash and decides to say he was driving as evident by this quote. “But of course i’ll say I was” (Fitzgerald, 143″
