It is important to ask that question because often The Great Gatsby is mainly associated with the American Dream and its typical lifestyle. Parties, money, expensive cars and women dressed in the typical fashion of the "Golden Twenties". But there is much more behind Jay Gatsby's story.
How did he make his way up to the top? And how important is wealth, success and his social status really in his opinion? In the following those questions will be given a closer look at.
At first a definition and the history of the American Dream will be given. Then there will be some general information about the Prohibition. The next point is about Gatsby's wealth and his success with a special focus on his illegal affairs. Afterwards Gatsby's reputation in society, also concerning his wealth and illegal means will be analysed. At the end the results will be summarized and an answer to the question whether Gatsby's economic success is a realization of the American Dream, will be given in the conclusion.
