a philosophical view on The Great Gatsby--using time as a key dimension to ones life theme The Great Gatsby - Essay Topic Time as a key dimension to ones lifes theme Time is an idea described in different periods and aspects for example philosophical psychological physical and biological This time flows evenly but is broken into the past present and future Since we only live in the present forever planning for our futures and dreams when we try to live in the past it restricts our future Throughout Fitzgeralds novel Gatsby wasted time and his life for a single dream and it was his illusion of his ideal future that made time a key dimension in his life Gatsby suffers from past memories of Daisy and tries to relive the relationship and in the process Gatsby was murdered Nick says Almost five years There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams - not through her own fault but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion Gatsbys idealistic view of Daisy was she was of pure and perfect form and after he kisses her his ideal perfect relationship starts to decay and the incarnation was complete The incarnation meaning Daisy cannot be ideally perfect anymore now that Gatsbys with her Daisy is not pure and perfect like Gatsby thought she was in the past From Gatsbys illusions of the past preoccupying all his thoughts he forgets about the key dimension he exists in which is the present Although Gatsby was persistent on reliving the past Gatsby vaguely lived for the present This is apparent when he cancels his biology by leaving home changing his name and leaving his heritage behind which was not done by following the past In the past Jay Gatsby made a platonic conception of himself What Nick said about Gatsbys platonic theory of himself was that Gatsby was a son of God
