Gatsby Symbol

"[Gatsby] wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: "I never loved you" ' (109).

- Gatby's reason for living the way he does- ultimate goal/dream- achieve American Dream - he never achieved his goal- symbol for people's desire for materialism- how the great life fell into darkness ( Roaring 20's to Great Depression)

In Your Dreams

The symbol of Gatsby's dream is used as a hope for achieving the best out of life, like running away with the perfect symbol of happiness and money. All he ever wanted was Daisy to re-write the past with lies, so Gatsby could finally grab the one thing that means the most to him, Daisy. It's important to, me and you, the readers, because it shows how greedy and corrupt humans ,especially the rich, are. The American Dream is corrupted with the need of superficial material and thoughts and Gatsby shows this corruption with the car, house, and the girl.
