Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Bibliographical References In "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the American Dream was interpreted through foolish acts of betrayal, thievery, and stereotypical judgement for the goal of a lost love. Marriages, souls, hearts, and promises were broken and obliterated due to the mistakes that people made in the past. The American Dream is now reconstructed and has become an American Nightmare. Now that we have learned about the burden, the nuisance of the "American Dream", we can learn from the perspectives and interpretations of Jay Gatsby, Nick Carraway, and Daisy Buchanan. The "Reconstructed" American Dream Jay Gatsby was a wealthy man who lived in a Gothic mansion located in West Egg. It is learned that as young soldier, Gatsby fell in love with Daisy Buchanan. Their love was lost, and Gatsby has dedicated himself to Daisy. Jay Gatsby's American dream was to be reunited with Daisy, but Daisy is married to Tom Buchanan. So, Gatsby and Daisy have committed adultery due to their affair. Gatsby shows how powerful a lost love can be when it is found. Jay Gatsby's Perspective of the American Dream Nick Carraway's Perspective of the American Dream Nick Carraway is a young man from Minnesota who travels to New York to learn about the bond business. Nick is also the cousin of Daisy Buchanan. Nick is the narrator and the quiet character of the story. He is in love with Jordan Baker despite her dishonesty. Nick's perspective on the American Dream was to become close to everyone and their lives. He became a puppet to their foolish ways despite knowing the fact of their wants in him. Daisy Buchanan's Perspective of the American Dream Daisy Buchanan is a woman of secrets that comes in and out of the picture throughout the novel. She is married to the character, Tom Buchanan, that is an unpreditable character in the story.She has one daughter and a secretive life of affairs with Gatsby. Daisy idea of the "American Dream"is a way to find what makes her happy, as well as, rich. She tries to decide between Tom and Gatsby, then chooses Tom. By:Derricka Calhoun Faith Evans
