Gatsby's parties are great, but his wealth is so much better!
In my American Dream interview, I found that both of the people I interviewed described the American Dream as the freedom to do whatever you want; "The American Dream is having the opportunity to pursue whatever it is that you want unbound by restrictions." - Mr. Martin
Gatsby's idealized American Dream can be seen in the green light, which represents hope for Gatsby for a future of love with Daisy and freedom in this love, defeating every odd against them, a dream of success in everything Gatsby has gone through to be with Daisy once again. Gatsby will never give up on this dream in reaching the green light, as its described as the "unattainable dream," the "dream [that] must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it"
Gatsby's corrupt American Dream can be described through his parties. Gatsby only worked for fame and admiration from others, and while he did earn a higher societal ranking, he had no real friends, only people drawn in through Gatsby's wealth, thus resulting in the corruptness of the parties, and further more, his dreams.
