On The Great Gatsby

The film described for the 20's through the perfect artistic form to sell "the

American dream" which liquor nouveau riche Gates compared pursues vanishing, has promulgated the American society's tragedy. Feeling sympathetic with Gatsby who spent almost his whole life pursuing Daisy unworthy when I watched the film.

. In the third person Nike’s view, which first half is comedy and second half is tragedy, who learns that his next-door neighbor, who throws lavish parties hosting hundreds of people, is the wealthy, mysterious Jay Gatsby. And the key character, Gatsby, had fallen in love with Daisy in 1917 as an Army Lieutenant stationed near Daisy's hometown, Louisville. After the war, Gatsby came east and bought his mansion near Daisy and Tom, where he hosts parties hoping she will visit. Before then Gatsby was a man of integrity and honor, who received great respect form the society to his wealth and power. While after his death, he was merely remembered, forgotten in the flew of time and lust. These parties were fashionable, but pointless. It was only a show-off of Gatsby’s riches and material success. The crowds hardly knew their host; many came and went without invitation. The music, the laughter and the faces, all blurred as one confused mass, showed the purposelessness and the

loneliness of the party-goers beneath their marks of relaxation and joviality. All this was typical of “the Jazz Age”, when many people lost belief in American dream and indulge themselves in drinking and dancing. The great expectations which the first

settlement of the American continent brings vanish, and so despair and doom set in. In his blue gardens, men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars….On week-ends his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past

midnight, while his station wagon scampered like a brisk yellow bug to meet all trains. And on Mondays eight servants, including an extra gardener, toiled all day with mops and scrubbing-brushes and hammers and garden-shears, repairing the ravages of the night before.

In organizing various extravagant party, with A charming smile is like a spring breeze, Gatsby always give people so steady, gentleman and polite. But when Nick said to him invited his cousin home, Mr. Gatsby is pleasantly surprised that, carefully prepared the date he and Daisy, happy like as a child. The longing and desire for love is so pure in the cross flow extravagant age.

The exavagent life, the noisy people constitute Gatsby’s parties. However, the depiction of the fashionable and meaningless parties served to highlight Gatsby’s tragedy by contrasting the grandeur of his party with his violent death, with the

frustration of his dream. Gatsby’s funeral was rather deserted and cheerless compared with his parties. It’s a record of human coldness. Nick had invited some people to come to Gatsby’s funeral. These people were all Gatsby’s so-called friends. They

found a lot of excuses for their absence because they knew clearly that Gatsby was no longer useful for them. Gatsby’s generous parties had not brought him even one friend. What’s more, Daisy, once Gatsby’s lover, the real killer, “hadn’t sent a message or a flower ”. The sharp contrast between the exavagence of the parties and the coldness of the funeral revealed the hypocritical relationship among people and the moral

degradation of the Jazz Age. Gatsby, though his wealth came from his criminal activities, was the typical symbol of American dream in that time, and the

whole-hearted dedication of Gatsby and his sincere belief in what he did made him heroic, and this submerged the unpleasant details so that they did not seem important in the final outcome, as has the American dreamer who were so stubborn to believe perspiration would bring what they want.

The real killer who murdered Gatsby was the society, in which people could

become rich overnight by non-moral means. While Gatsby, the true heir to the American dream, was killed by Conspiracy of his lover Daisy, who was actually stimulated by the vanity fair, and lived in luxury at the cost of Gatsby, to whom without mercy. The cruel reality smashed Gatsby’s dream. T he failure of Gatsby’s dream was also a statement on the failure of American dream. What is more, dream, even if it persists, is utterly helpless and defenseless against a material society. It can

only be defeated. Gatsby was an example. Owing to his unrealistic dream, Gatsby’s fate turned out to be a tragedy.

The disillusion of the American dream and the loss of the American dream reflect the corruption of people’s morality. The sharp contrast between dream and reality not only explains Gatsby’s failure at the end, it also explains the meaninglessness of that age. In a word, these contrasts provide the readers with a panorama of 1920s.
