Gatsby the Legend
by: Gavin McDaniel
Gatsby's dream was Daisy
Gatsby's dream was simple. He wanted Daisy,felt he had to have her and thought no other woman would suffice. "'I'm going to fix everything just the way it was before,' he said, nodding determinedly. 'She'll see.'" (Fitzgerald 110). Several years before, Gatsby did have Daisy but he had to leave to go fight in the war and that love never left him. We see that even though Daisy moved on and got married Gatsby thinks he can still make their relationship work. He was determined to succeed under any circumstance, "'No we couldn't meet. But both of us loved each other all that time, old sport, and you didn't know." (Fitzgerald 131). By saying this we see that Gatsby never lost love for Daisy. He has been pursuing his dream for several years. "'I can't describe to you how surprised I was to find out I loved her, old sport'" (Fitzgerald 150). Once again it is shown that the only thing Gatsby ever strives for is Daisy. He is so centered on Daisy that he seems to be oblivious to anything else.
