Gatsby's American dream.


Direct quote

"Daisy put her arm through his abruptly but he seemed absorbed in what he had just said. Possibly it had occurred to him that the colossal significance of that light had now vanished forever. Compared to the great distance that had separated him from Daisy it had seemed very near to her, almost touching her. It had seemed as close as a star to the moon. Now it was again a green light on a dock. His count of enchanted objects had diminished by one." Chapter 5 Page 100

Examples

-He had so many amazing parties just to attract the attention of Daisy and to hopefully get her to come to one of them. When he finally was with Daisy he stopped having the parties.

- He didn't like being poor and his life so he left home to join the war. He meet Daisy and knew he had to get money to be with her because, "Rich girls don't marry poor boys."

- Gatsby bought a house across the bay from Daisy just so he could be close to her. He could see the green light from Daisy's house from his.


-He even changed his own name to help himself get up in the world. He's changing himself to be the person he wants himself to be, and is completely getting rid of his own past.
