- The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald is recognized in American Literature as one of his greatest achievements Many of Fitzgerald?s works research the Jazz-Age for the single American dream of happiness and wealth (Poupard, Person 146) ?Critics concur that The Great Gatsby rises above being a mere chronicle of a past American era, and most believe that the novel?s continued popularity demonstrates modern America?s fascination with the American dream?

- SummaryAt the onset of this book, the reader is introduced to the narrator, Nick Carraway, who relates the past happenings that construct the story of Jay Gatsby and Nick during the summer of 1922.

Fitzgerald was born on September 24, 1896, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and attended Princeton University, where he mostly ignored formal study, instead receiving his education from writers and critics, such as Edmund Wilson, who remained his lifelong friend.
- Like the setting says, the story takes place at West Egg in Long Island. The narrator, Nick, is not like the people of West Egg. He drives out to East Egg to have dinner with his cousin Daisy and her husband Tom where he is introduced to Jordan Baker, the woman who he will begin a romantic relationship with.
- After two years I can still remember the rest of the day, and that night and the next day, as if it were a constant reminder of how a piece of my being was no longer going to live on in life. I woke up that morning in a dripping sweet after having a horrible nightmare that I had know recollection of what it was all about.
- The American Dream is based on the belief that anyone can succeed in life by his or her own skill and effort The Great Gatsby, is a novel about what happened to the American Dream in the 1920?s, a period when the old values from which the dream emerged from, had been corrupted by the pursuit of wealth Fitzgerald?s critique of the dream of success is developed primarily through Nick, the narrator and observer, who sees and recounts what has gone wrong, Gatsby, who lives the dream purely, and Tom, Daisy, and Jordan, the ?foul dust?(6) who are the prime examples of the corruption of the dream Gat
- Nick Carroway and Jay Gatsby are like an orange and an apple; either being what you want. Oranges and apples have similarities; such as, being a fruit, but have contrasting attributes, like apples are non-citric and oranges are full of citric that s why they never go brown.
- One of the themes that Fitzgerald develops is the contrast between the East and West, embodied both as East and West Egg, and in the characters of Daisy Buchanan and Jordon Baker. The contrast of east and west was made unequivocal when New York Tribune Editor Horace Greeley extolled his New England readers to “Go West, Young Man, and Grow up with the Nation.
- The beauty of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s writing is probably nowhere more exhibited than in his handling of the color-symbols in The Great Gatsby. The range of the color-symbols and their complex operations at each stage of action is escaped from the readers.
- This novel was written in Fitzgerald?s own time. The reader is able to see his insight and artistic integrity in the way that which the novel is composed.

- F. Scott Fitzgerald?s novel, The Great Gatsby, is full of symbolism. Fitzgerald wrote in a way that allowed everybody, regardless of their reading level, to take something more from the novel. For the lower levels there is the green light on the end of Daisy?s pier, for the middle levels there is the eyes of Dr.
- Next Nick and Tom go to The garage where Tom tells Myrtle to be on the next train. They picked her up at the station in New York and as they are driving to the apartment Tom has rented for the affair Myrtle buys a dog.
- By the end of the novel, the hopes of both Gatsby and Mrs. Wilson have been dashed and they have passed away. While discussing the lost dreams of these two people, the image of dust is used several times. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald used dust to symbolize the destruction of the dreams of the common man.
- The dream of wealth has been a mutual theme for many Americans all through history. The prospect to become high society by money has blinded many Americans to the underlying consequence that is corruption. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. In this case, too much of that thing is money.
- The characters in The Great Gatsby illustrate that, by the 1920 s, the American Dream is deteriorating. Through symbolism, F.
