Defending Daisy Buchanan
A.k.a., Why Gatsby and Tom Aren’t All That Different and Nick is a Faulty Narrator
I agree with this, except that I think in Gatsby’s mind she was too scared to say she never loved Tom. He didn’t realize she had loved him at one point. Of course he does pressure her, and he should have realized that, but he thought he was pressuring her into the truth. I still think what the others did was worse than what Gatsby did (see Nick’s quote about their carelessness) but he certainly wasn’t as innocent as Nick believed.
I love reading reviews of The Great Gatsby where they say that “majority of the characters are unlikable and shallow”
DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT!
Yet high over the city our line of yellow windows must have contributed their share of human secrecy to the casual watcher in the darkening streets, and I was him too, looking up and wondering. I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.
