He is a “pruneface” of the novel. The only consolation for George is his wife, Myrtle. He is devastated by Myrtle's affair with Tom. His life lost its point after the wife’s death. An interesting fact is that we can compare George Wilson with Gatsby as both they are dreamers and unhappy with a woman. Perhaps, it is reasonable to say that the wealthy life cannot satisfy all spiritual needs of a man. Despite the fact that George was much sought after the women he needed love only from his wife. The same case we can observe with Gatsby. That is the distinct connection between these two characters.
