PRICE CHARACTER PAID FOR HIS DREAM
Nick was disgusted by society in New York City and the east in general because the people are superficial. Nick paid with a summer of his life,the death of a friend,and with the disillusionment of his American dream. As Scott Fitzgerald said through Nick "even the East excited me the most..aware of the bored sprawling swollen towns...interminable inquisitions which spared only the children and the very old always for me a quality of distortion "(176) to show why Nick was disillusionment of his American dream. .
