Daisy's simple goal focuses on one person: herself.
"Beautiful White Girlhood"
Does she love Gatsby, or love how he makes her feel?
Why does Daisy leave Gatsby for Tom? She was obviously upset the night before her wedding, drunk and clutching his letter. Perhaps the fact that Gatsby was now making her sad caused her to finally accept being married to Tom. Later, Tom might be boring her, and making her feel jealous and angry because of the affair, so she spends time with Gatsby for new love and excitement. When finally confronted with a choice between the two, she tries to go for the middle ground: the way that would make her more happy. After Gatsby's death, she moves with Tom back to Chicago, where she was popular. Was her choice because she wanted to selfishly be happy, with no thought about the people she was using?
Selfish, or immoral?
