The Great Gatsby

In the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, he raises the question of
what is real, the tangible world or the world of imagination. Throughout the book, Nick
serves as a representative of reality, whereas Jay Gatsby represents the fairy tale lifestyle.
Fitzgerald connects the two "worlds" by weaving the characters back and forth
In the course of this novel, Fitzgerald's usege of symbolism makes the fairy tale
life believable.The green light at the end of Daisy's dock symbolizes the aspiration of
Gatsby's love towards Daisy. Nickfirst observes the love with Daisy when he sees
Gatsby's arm stretched out towards the green light on her dock. "… He stretched out his
arms towards the dark water in a curious way, as far as I was from him I could have saw
he was trembling. Involuntarily I glanced seaward … and distinguished nothing except a
single green light, minute far away, that might have been at the end of the dock. " (26).
Each character in the novel appears to be very naive, which make this lifestyle possible.
Though Gatsby and Daisy had been separated for a long time, Gatsby still had faith in their
relationship. "He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: "I
never loved you."(116)." This is showing his naive side. Gatsby is clearly inthe world of

Gatsby strives to win Daisy's affection by changing his whole life. Jay Gatsby had
everything a man could ever want. He has the perfect house, the perfect car, the perfect
parties, and enough money to last him for the remainder of his life. The one thing he does
