Transcript of Untitled Prezi

By: Cierra Potts, Chase Georges, Josh Saylor. Anna Rodriguez The idealistic American Dream has been replaced by materialism and Greed The West has its simple virtue; The East is corrupt and evil Wealth is power. Wealth and power corrupt. Belief in romantic destiny has its dire consequences. When you have wealth you have power.
People use their wealth to get power like
how Gatsby uses his wealth to Get Daisy
back and Tom uses his wealth to find out
more about Gatsby Gatsby uses
extravehicular parties hoping that one
day Daisy will just come walking in. Tom
pays for a private investigator to
follow Gatsby. Tom says "I've made a
small investigation of this fellow.
On page 122. On page 131 Tom says, "I'll be
damned if I see how you got within a mile
of her unless you bought the groceries to the back door, Tom is pretty much saying Gastby is
not good enough for Daisy because he's not as wealthy as Tom. Nick wasn't very powerful. On page 130 he says, "I know I'm not very popular.
I don't give big parties. I suppose you've got to make your house into a pigsty in order to have any friends." If Gatsby would have never gotten involved with Daisy again he wouldn't have died. Nick tries and tells him to leave after they kill Myrtle but he wants to stay and wait for Daisy, Nick talks about this on page 148. He says " He wouldn't consider it. He couldn't possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do." Gatsby's fate was completely in Daisy's hands. Gatsby made his whole life Daisy and that was why he died alone
and had no one there for him his romantic
destiny had dire consequences. Critics Assistant Daisy could have the American Dream of family and happiness but chooses wealth instead. Gatsby said, "She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me." This was when they were talking about why Daisy doesn't love Tom. This was found of page 30. "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they made. This was found on page 179. Tom and Daisy chose materialism over the American Dream. During the west things were more simple and less dramatic. In the East there's a lot of greed and dishonesty and just the quality of people goes down. Nick said, "I lived at West Egg, the less fashionable of the two, through this is a most superficial tag to express the bizarre and not a little sinister contrast between them. This was found on page 5. He also mentions East egg. "Across the courtesy bay the white palaces of fashinonable East Egg glittered along the water. This was on page 5. It also says "To the wingless a more arresting phenomenon is their dissimilarity in every particular except shape and size." This is about how different they really are.
