How are gatsby’s dreams fake when the man went from being dirt poor in the midwest to becoming a notorious millionaire? Not to mention banging daisy while she was married and having extravagant parties.

Destiny Phillips says:

so we beat on. Boats against the current borne back ceaselessly into the past. this is one of my favorite quotes. It sums up a lot of the book. The quote reveals that no matter how hard we try we will never be much greater than the station we were born into. It shows that Gatsby’s efforts were in vain.

Kane Jones says:

I thought that Daisy had an idea that Tom be cheatin’, it seems that way in the novel.
