You know about Gatsby and Daisy in the past in the present -- but what about their future? Thinking about all you have learned -- about their characters, about the social classes that divide the, and about their views of the past -- predict what you think will happen between the two. Use details from the novel and from your lessons to support you answer.

Answer: I don't think that Gatsby and Daisy will end up together in the future, despite their relationship and feelings. I also don't see Daisy staying with Tom either, both Tom and Gatsby have their flaws. Each of those flaws will affect Daisy in different ways.

Is there anything else I could add to my response??

  2. Will they have a future in the after-life? What detail from the novel might indicate that Gatsby has no future, with or without Daisy?

  3. Think about Jay and Daisy's past. Why did she leave each other 5 years ago? Why did Daisy move on when Jay didn't?

    Remember that Daisy wanted a stable, supported lifestyle. Jay didn't have a reliable money source before. Tom has plenty of money and they have live roughly the same lifestyle for 5 years. Whereas, Jay is more reckless with the way he spends his money and everyone "knows" that he only inherited it, he didn't work for it.
