you can do a comparison with Macbeth

similarities
The Great Gatsby and Macbeth illustrate how ambition and eagerness for something or someone has the potential to affect their thoughts and actions. Within the novel the embodiment of illusion is evident as Gatsby and Macbeth have deceitful personalities. Jay Gatsby and Macbeth are similar because they both hide their deceptive personalities. Gatsby's real name is James Gatz, a poor boy from North Dakota who changed his identity to be a completely different person and create a new image of himself to be decent enough to be with Daisy. He tries to attract Daisy with wealth and high social class. Macbeth puts on an act of being a noble and virtuous soldier in which greed takes over and he becomes a tyrant.

differences

Jay Gatsby's objective lies in his love for Daisy and how these desires influence his actions which in return hold fatal consequences.Meanwhile , the possibility of becoming king intrigues Macbeth however it changes his thoughts and poisons his mind as he feels he must fulfill the prophecy by any means necessary. Macbeth's intentions are murderous and fueled by greed and vaulting ambition. Due to his remorselessness he kills his king and his best friend in order to obtain superiority.

When you are writing about comparison, did you mean characters compared to Gatsby? if so, you can compare his love relationship to Daisy with these couples:

- Phileas Fogg and Princess Aouda (Around the World in eighty days)

- Frederic Henry and Catherine Barkley (A farewell to Arms)
