Images dance around during the nighttime dreams. These worlds are full of perfection and serve a purpose. The images presented in dreams are pleasing to the viewer because of the enjoyment that they bring. Each one is full of illusions and nonsense that can or cannot come true, but most of the time does not. The "American Dream" that Gatsby pictured never comes true for him because he goes about it in the wrong ways. His display of wealth in this novel is only meant to accomplish one thing, the affection of a certain individual. Life cannot be based around one dream for if someone does there will only be devastation in the end.
