Daisy Buchanan (née Fay) is Nick Carraway’s second cousin once removed, and the woman Jay Gatsby loves. During World War I, she fell in love with Gatsby and promised to wait for. She appeares as a supporting character and later hidden antagonist in the book and film adaptions, Quite of
Daisy Fay was born in 1899 to a wealthy family in Louisville, Kentucky. In 1917, 18-year-old was known to be extremely popular with the men enlisted.
Daisy is characterized as shallow, careless, as well as cheerful at times. However, there is a deeper side to her. For one, she makes sardonic comments, proving that she is not as ignorant as she portrays herself to be. Her sardonic comments stem from the hurt she feels, knowing Tom has several chicks outside so he cheats on Daisy. It is unclear whether Daisy really loved Gatsby (she claims to have), but her indecisiveness, or as some see it- intentionally letting misinformation to stay misinformation, (in)directly lead to the death of Gatsby. Daisy has a daughter named Pammy, but often leaves her with a care taker. Even so, she does show some care for her daughter when she tells Nick Carraway "I'm glad it's a girl and I hope she'll be a fool. That's the best thing a girl can ever be in this world, a beautiful little fool.", showing that she does not want her daughter to know too many things about the world, it's better if she stays ignorant and shallow, like Daisy tries to be.
