The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, takes place in the 1920's in Long Island, New York. Manhattan is also an important setting in the novel.
In the rising action, Daisy is put in a very overwhelming situation as Gatsby and Tom fight for her love. It takes place in a hotel in NYC. This scene leaves things very confused.
The climax begins when Gatsby and Daisy are driving home from the hotel. Daisy decides to drive to calm herself down but ends up hitting Tom's mistress. This leads to Tom telling Wilson it was Gatsby and the death of Jay Gatsby.
The falling action of the novel is Jay Gatsby's funeral. This funeral is very depressing and ends the action in the novel. The only people that are present is Nick, Gatsby's father and a random guy.
Gatsby dies without achieving his american dream. He never ends up with Daisy. He has nearly no one at his funeral. It is portraying the themes of love and wealth. He thought his money could achieve him the dream but it really couldn't.
The green light is a symbol. It symbolized hope for Gatsby. He reached to it, trying to grasp his ideal future with Daisy. "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther . . . "
