Why Gatsby Was Great? A Look Through a Brilliant Novel

One of the most memorable novels in modern literature, "The Great Gatsby", acted later by a group of brilliant characters, such as; Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire.

The most magnificent thing about the story of the novel, that all of the characters are sinful and guilty, but still you can be touched with the manners that some of them could retain. As you can see, Gatsby, who was called great by"Nick Carraway", was not fully great and godlike the way that Nick saw and made us see it, too. Even Nick, the so- called innocent party of the story, was not right all the time, as he kept the secret of Tom's cheating to Daisy. and the secret relation between Daisy and Gatsby.

The great thing about Gatsby was not his fortune or his reputation, but was his hope, infinite hope for Daisy to be his again. Also his temper and perfect attitude and behavior all the time. Though he had his breakdown when he was under pressure of remembering the past of being nothing before having everything.

He was a man, a man who protects his friends, keep his promise, holding on for his love, even when she hasn't done the same for him. He was a character that takes your breath right away you see him, captures your attention the moment he walks through. A man who was ready to take all the blame for a mistake he didn't make, only to save his woman.

Jay Gatsby is a man whose life was comparable to the American dream. Gatsby symbolizes both the corrupted Dream and the original uncorrupted Dream. He sees wealth as a solution to his problems. He had an exciting interesting story about his life. His life story was questionable throughout the whole novel. though he was not the right meaning of Great, what he has been through and what he has done for other people is really worth the word"Great".
