Jay Gatsby Shattered Dreams F Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby is a tragic tale of love distorted by obsession Finding himself in the city of New York Jay Gatsby is a loyal and devoted man who is willing to cross oceans and build mansions for his one true love His belief in realistic ideals and his perseverance greatly influence all the decisions he makes and ultimately direct the course of his life Gatsby has made a total commitment to a dream and he does not realize that his dream is hollow Although his intentions are true he sometimes has a crude way of getting his point across When he makes his ideals heard his actions are wasted on a thoughtless and shallow society Jay Gatsby effectively embodies a romantic idealism that is sustained and destroyed by the intensity of his own dream It is also Gatsbys ideals that blind him to reality When he first meets Daisy Buchanan Gatsby has committed himself to the following of a grail 156 With extreme dedication he stops at nothing to win her love back after years of separation Gatsbys idealized conception of Daisy is the motivating force that underlies his compulsion to become successful Everything he has done up to this point has been directed toward winning Daisys favor and having her back in his life The greatest example of this dedication is the mansion he has constructed a colossal affair by any standardwith a tower on one side spanking new under a thin beard of raw ivy and a marble swimming pool and more than forty acres of lawn and garden 9 Once a penniless young man without a past 156 he transforms himself into a self-made millionaire and builds an extravagant mansion all for the love of Daisy Buchanan He also strategically places the mansion across the lake from Daisys house From his window Gatsby can see the blue colored lights of her house Gatsby
