“Who wants to go to town?” demanded Daisy insistently.

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VII) on Rap Genius


Daisy’s restlessness here illustrates her carefree and somewhat empty life. She has the freedom to do anything she pleases because she is fortunately born into money and does not have any real worries.

Despite having all the freedom in the world, she is restless and tries to occupy her time by partying, socializing, or going to town.

Daisy’s restlessness characterizes part of the general mood of the roaring 20s.
