В В 

Dictionary. comВ saysВ that" theВ AmericanВ DreamВ isВ theВ idealВ thatВ everyВ USВ citizenВ shouldВ haveВ anВ equalВ opportunityВ toВ achieveВ successВ andВ prosperityВ throughВ hardВ work, В determination, В andВ initiative” (dictionary. com). В ToВ manyВ peopleВ theВ AmericanВ DreamВ isВ unattainable. В InВ theВ novelВ " TheВ GreatВ Gatsby”, В Mr. В GatsbyВ doesВ notВ attainВ theВ AmericanВ Dream. В В GatsbyВ workedВ reallyВ hardВ toВ getВ whereВ heВ wasВ butВ heВ didВ notВ getВ toВ liveВ hisВ lifeВ withВ DaisyВ andВ fitВ in. В F. В ScottВ FitzgeraldВ doesВ aВ niceВ jobВ ofВ describingВ thisВ throughВ imagery, В setting, В andВ symbolismВ inВ theВ novel. В

TheВ AmericanВ DreamВ isВ aboutВ movingВ upВ theВ socioeconomicВ classВ throughВ hardВ work. В GatsbyВ doesВ moveВ upВ inВ moneyВ butВ notВ socially. В В FromВ Gatsby'sВ partiesВ weВ firstВ findВ outВ thatВ GatsbyВ isВ " new” richВ fromВ TomВ whenВ heВ saysВ toВ NickВ " aВ lotВ ofВ theseВ newlyВ richВ peopleВ areВ justВ bigВ bootleggers” (107). В GatsbyВ workedВ hardВ throughВ bootleggingВ butВ stillВ inВ theВ eyesВ ofВ theВ TomВ andВ theВ otherВ " old” richВ peopleВ thereВ justВ middleВ classВ orВ poor. В GatsbyВ doesn'tВ fitВ inВ evenВ atВ hisВ ownВ partiesНѕВ peopleВ don'tВ evenВ knowВ whoВ heВ is. В WhenВ GatsbyВ saidВ " IВ thoughtВ youВ knew, В oldВ sport. В I'mВ afraidВ I'mВ notВ aВ veryВ goodВ host” (48). В GatsbyВ thinksВ byВ throwingВ aВ partyВ heВ canВ getВ attentionВ butВ thatВ isВ notВ whatВ happensВ atВ all. В GatsbyВ doesВ notВ fitВ inВ theВ upperВ classВ ofВ theВ

socioeconomicВ class. В ThisВ disprovesВ theВ ideaВ ofВ theВ AmericanВ dreamВ becauseВ GatsbyВ didВ notВ achieveВ success. В

TheВ AmericanВ dreamВ makesВ peopleВ thinkВ thatВ theyВ canВ getВ anythingВ ifВ theyВ workВ hardВ enough. В F. В ScottВ FitzgeraldВ portraysВ thisВ asВ false. В TheВ greenВ lightВ atВ theВ endВ ofВ Tom'sВ dockВ isВ anВ importantВ symbolВ withinВ theВ book. В ItВ representsВ theВ AmericanВ dreamВ andВ GatsbyВ goalВ ofВ gettingВ daisy. В AfterВ dinnerВ withВ Tom, В Daisy, В andВ Jordan, В NickВ goesВ backВ toВ hisВ houseВ andВ findsВ GatsbyВ stretch[ing]В outВ hisВ armsВ towardВ theВ darkВ waterВ inВ aВ curiousВ way, В and, В farВ asВ IВ wasВ fromВ him, В IВ...
