    I think it sounds like a good topic for two pages– that’s a very short essay.Think about Gatsby’s life, how he rose from “rags to riches,” got the big house and went after the woman of his dreams. First, get out a piece of paper and write down everything that comes to mind when you think of the American Dream. Look it up in the dictionary, and try to come up with a clear definition of it (as a social ideal, it is hard to define, but as long as you make your definition clear in your paper, you’ll be fine).Then discuss a different aspect in each chapter, and how it relates to Gatsby. For instance, one paragraph might discuss the “rags-to-riches” aspect, and how Gatsby started out poor….You could discuss the many ways Gatsby fulfills the American Dream, and the ways he doesn’t. (Also, how does he feel about it? Does he believe in it?)You should have more than enough for two pages.

    F Scott Fitzgerald my favorite author of fiction in that era.What your exacting needs are I don’t quite understand, andnothing to compare with other A’s as yet. “The American Dream” or could it be The Great AmericanTragic Dream” Sighting on Gatsby’s mistaken obsession, The snobbery of the upper class etc. His down fall.Noting the life of FSG and his own tragic full wonderful life.Have you read “Cliff Notes” on The Great Gatsby, It would give you a super guide line. I’m not to savy on the net, But maybe the Cliffs Notes are on line? Good luck, I’m sure you’llfind two pages to fill once you get started.

Gatsby was definetly new money but tried to do everything he could to appear as old money (parties, big house, etc…) for Daisy. but no matter how much he tried, it didnt work
