Concerning your question about Daisy in The Great Gatsby, you might want to consider a less judgmental view of Daisy.  Try this quote:I woke up out of the ether [after delivering a baby] with an utterly abandoned feeling and asked the nurse right away if it was a boy or a girl.  She told me it was a girl, and so I turned my head away and wept.  ‘All right,’ I said, ‘I’m glad it’s a girl.  And I hope she’ll be a fool–that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.’You could just as easily use “trapped” instead of manipulative or materialistic. Daisy is trapped in a patriarchal society dominated by men, as women in Europe and then America have been for centuries. Women could not even vote for most of Daisy’s life. The way to improve one’s situation for a woman was to marry a wealthy man…At least in Daisy’s time.Though Nick dismisses Daisy’s above comments, Nick can be unreliable. Also, he is male, his understanding of Daisy’s situation is minimal. Finally, he accepts Daisy’s dismissal of the comments, assuming she is just playacting, pretending sophistication. But she could just as easily be embarrassed by her remarks and by her show of feeling, and be dismissing them for that reason.
