The American Dream I have just read a novel called The Great Gatsby this novel was based in the 1920s In this novel there are lots of drinking and partying In this essay Ill be writing about how the novel condemns the belief of The American Dream this belief states that hard working people are successful and happy lives And in this novel The American Dream was just a mirage One of the characters in the novel that represents the American Dream is Wilson he was one of the character that was a hard worker and own his own mechanic shop he was one of the characters the worked every day and every night to support his family For all he did for his family he was rewarded by his wife leaving him for another man and for a friend to over power him with words and to get a loved one killed by a car that she was walking towardWhen he came outside again a little after seven he was reminded of the conversation because he heard Mrs Wilsons voice load and scolding down stairs in the garage Beat me he heard her cry Throw me down and beat me you dirty little coward A moment later she rushed out into the dusk waving her hands and shouting before he could move from his door the business was over The death car as the newspapers called it didnt stop it came out of the gathering darkness wavered tragically for a moment and then disappeared around the next bend Michaelis wasnt even sure of its color---he told the first policeman that it was light green The other car the one going toward New York came to rest a hundred yards beyond and its driver hurried back to where Myrtle Wilson her life violently extinguished knelt in the road and mingled her thick dark blood with the dustPg144-145 For all this he got for
