Jay Gatsby symbolizes New Money and the American Dream everybody lusts. He represents the majority of the audience, because he had a dream and her got it which is something everybody wants to do. Gatsby is generally a loving and out going carrying person. He's very loyal to Daisy and tries to impress her by being etravagent. Something in the text of The Great Gatsby that can prove this being so is when when Nick/F. Scott Fitzgerald says, "See!" he cried triumphantly. "It's a bona-fide piece of printed matter. It fooled me. This fella's a regular Belasco. It's a triumph. What thoroughness! What realism! Knew when to stop, too - didn't cut the pages. But what do you want? What do you expect?". This shows how Gatsby can buy the things that rich people have, but he can't buy the education or experience. But from what the owl-eyed man says, it doesn't sound like anyone else is reading them, either.
