Gatsby's Corrupt American Dream
"The American Dream rewards people’s contributions fairly; therefore, this society will continue to grow and get better generation after generation."
"'Can't repeat the past?' he cried incredulously. 'Why of course you can!'" (Fitzgerald, 1925, p. 110). Gatsby spent all of his time trying to get Daisy to be like the way she was five years ago when they met in Louisville.
"'You're one of that bunch that hangs around with Meyer Wolfsheim... I picked him for a bootlegger that first time I saw hin, and I wasn't far wrong'" (Fitzgerald, 1925, p. 133). Gatsby made his money illegally in order to get Daisy back; he doesn't even care about it, only Daisy.
