    Literary Micro-Analysis of The Great Gatsby If anyone were to take a long look at life, they would notice the fact that each person has their own dream of success. Everyone has their own version of what they ultimately want to achieve in their life. For one person, it may be wealth, for another it may be love, another, a family. Sadly, many people, never get a chance to reach this goal. This includes fictional book characters. They are often based off of real humans. So, they have similar if not the same goals and dreams of success. In Fitzgerald’s the Great Gatsby Myrtle fails to achieve success of living the lavish life because she relies on others to achieve this and her life ends tragically. In Myrtle's regular life, she lived in a section of town where Fitzgerald called “The valley of ashes” (Fitzgerald ###) This is a grotesque place as described by the author. It is the exact opposite of what Myrtle wants in her life and so she craves her dream of wealth even more. About then is when she finds Tom. He is much more wealthy than she is and they grow closer. Myrtle and Tom begin having an affair and she adores the attention she gets from him. In wanting to keep her happy, as well as to show off, he tries to pamper her with gifts such as a puppy, an apartment, and fancy clothing. She greatly enjoys this attention and basks in it. But, once Tom leaves and goes back to Daisy, she is left to return back to her poorly ways. One night, they have a small party at the apartment and Tom and Myrtle get into a fight. Tom does no want Myrtle saying Daisy's name because he feels it is disrespectful of her. ““Daisy! Daisy! Daisy!” shouted Mrs. Wilson. “I’ll say it whenever I want to! Daisy! Dai ——” Making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.” (Fitzgerald ###) This is the point where Myrtle realizes the sad fact that, she’s not special. No matter how much she thought she was or she wanted to be, she will never get to be Tom’s favorite. Daisy will always be Tom’s number one gal and there is absolutely nothing she can do to change that fact. She is utterly powerless, and she doesn’t like it. It is here that she begins her downward mental spiral. She also realizes that not only is she not special, but Tom see’s her as replaceable. He has a vastly greater amount of respect for Daisy than he does Myrtle and that's why he broke Ms Wilson’s nose when she was even just saying her name. Tom does not feel that Myrtle should be talking about her because he views it as an awfully disrespectful thing to her. She realizes that the last chance she had of achieving her dream is wasting away, she gets upset. And with all of this happening, she see’s no other option in her mind but to take her own life. She decides that is she can’t have her dream and if she can’t live the lavish life, then she cannot live happy and really, should not live at all. Having realized this, she takes matters into her own hands and when the gatsby car is passing in front of her house, she leaps in front of the car and it kills her. Another reason she is unable to achieve her dream is because of her generally submissive and passive nature. She has left her fate into the hands of another person rather than taking it and controlling it for her own. She see’s Tom begining to give her what she wants most and then gives him all of the power. When she could instead be taking this power for herself and creating the lavish life she always wanted rather than just sponging off of another person. Like the song Drive by Incubus says “hold the wheel and drive” this means to take control of your own life and your own future. Rather than “let the fear, take the wheel and steer” or because you're afraid of screwing it up, letting someone else decide your path, that way it's easier to blame them than yourself. When she is with Tom, she is very passive and usually lets him lead her wherever he wants to go. And when she is a bit more rebellious, there are severe consequences, such as a broken nose. While when she is with her husband, she is a bit more rebellious. She'll talk back to him without fear like when she did here.
