The Great Gatsby is written by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The story takes place in “the roaring twenties”. The characters in the novel have dreams and goals and not one dream ends well. That is why my thesis statement is: The Great Gatsby is really about unattainable dreams. The dreams I am discussing is Gatsby´s American dream, Daisy’s dream and Nick’s dream.
The dreams are based on the love story between Daisy and Gatsby. The final piece in Gatsby’s American dream would be if he got Daisy to wed him. Daisy dreams of Gatsby but chooses between him and her current husband Tom. Nick wants Gatsby’s life to be a happy life and he cares a lot about him. His dream is for the story to end well. When Daisy does not choose Gatsby in the end, all three dreams end badly in different ways. Through the story F. Scott Fitzgerald wants to portray a different view of “the roaring twenties”.
