Gatsby, Loman, and the American Dream
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page look at these two characters from Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. The paper shows how both characters illustrate the falseness of the belief that charisma means more than ability; appearance means more than reality; ruthlessness means more than ethics; and success is everything.

Nick Carraway's Role in Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby'
[ send me this essay ]
A five page paper looking at F. Scott Fitzgerald's unusual choice of a narrator in this novel. Nick Carraway is not a protagonist in the novel, yet his very distance from the heart of the story enables us to learn a moralistic lesson from the tale in a way that wouldn't have been possible if the tale had been told from either of the protagonists' points of view. No additional sources.

The Great Gatsby and The American Dream:
[ send me this essay ]
The American Dream is a fairly nebulous concept that is exemplified by a number of American ideals. The story of Horatio Alger is indicative of what the American Dream stands for economic success through hard work and an innovative outlook on capitalism. Stability, security and family values are signified in the suburban lifestyle that is considered uniquely American. This 7 page paper argues that The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, uses the excesses and exaggerated lifestyle of the protagonist, Jay Gatsby, to criticize the inherent motivations necessary to acquire the American Dream. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

[ send me this essay ]
