The Great Gatsby
Contrary to Daisy, Myrtle is not a dainty, thin woman, but rather on the bigger side. We also discussed that Tom is most likely using Nick to boost his own ego. How is this contradictory? It becomes obvious then as to why Myrtle is having an affair with Tom; obviously, there is no hope for Myrtle to rise above the Valley of Ashes if she does not associate herself with a wealthy man from East Egg. Being that women were incredibly dependent on men during the s, Myrtle must depend on an affluent man to take her away from the Valley. Unfortunately, she cannot depend on Wilson — who ironically enough, owns a business but cannot generate any profits.
