The main message of the passage is the pursuit of happiness when you follow your dreams and trust your heart. In the passage gatsby once has a dream and question himself later in the story if he has cam close but not close enough. The author uses symbols of Dreams, the green light , and wealth to illustrate the theme of success and how never giving up a dream , at the same time dreams could be different from reality. The author first uses the symbol of the green light to illustrate the love that gatsby had for Daisy because the green light represents Dasiy dcok and the light on the ferryboat. In the story you can see that Daisy is in love with money, ease, and material things . She is capable showing love but she seems to show Nick and Gatsby and well…. Tom , love sincerely sometimes but daisy true colors were shown when she chose Tom over Gatsby in Chapter 7. That’s not even the worse part , she also let Gatsby take the blame for the murder of Myrtle Wilson and she knew she was driving the car( background knowledge ) . The green light represents a memories that gatsby had of her. The second symbol the author uses is the wealth, it ties into the main idea because symbol the story is ran by people with the most wealth and sometimes or in there case most of the times they to believe that money can fix all problems. Women want the men with the most money and if your a man and you don’t have wealth your at the bottom of the food chain . It is clear to see when daisy left gatsby , it was never about love , well at the beginning she did but it’s almost like a business move for her. Us readers see it as a heartbreak , it’s just another business move. And that’s when the reality hits. The last symbol the authors uses gatsby’s dreams that really drives or makes gatsby who him his. Gatsby reveals himself to be an innocent, hopeful young man who stakes everything on his dreams, not realizing that his dreams are unworthy of him. Gatsby invests Daisy with an idealistic perfection that she cannot possibly attain in reality and pursues her with a passionate that almost blinds him to her limitations. His dream of her is no gone , revealing the corruption that wealth causes and the unworthiness of the goal or dream. The three main points all come back to , ” The dreams and people’s wants or different from reality.” Everything from the green light that brings back memories for gatsby and the times he had with daisy if he was up to him they would be together , and the mens wealth instead of the pleasure are different and lastly the innocents and dreams of gatsby also THE AMERICAN DREAM aren’t what time seems. The dreams and the things you want to go right will not always add . Dreams and reality are not always the same.
