6. Theme: Bad Dreams, Bad Ends

The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1925
Famous for: Wild parties, loads of cocktails, the green light at the end of the dock, a hit-and-run that ends it all.

America is fueled by a dream. The dream of more. It’s the dream that drives the characters in The Great Gatsby—in Jay Gatsby’s case, to his grave. And there’s F. Scott Fitzgerald’s message for his readers: Dreams may be good, but corrupt dreams inevitably lead to bad ends.
