When Gatsby fails to reach these goals, his fantasy world comes crumbling down. Therefore, Gatsby is essentially an idealist who is destroyed by his inability to accept reality. Gatsby’s
For Daisy to have been with Gatsby would have been forbidden, due to the fact that she was married. That very concept of their love being forbidden, also made it all the more intense, for the idea of having a prohibited love, like William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, made it all the more desirable. Gatsby was remembering back five years to when Daisy was not married and they were together: His heart began to beat faster as Daisy 's white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his
The boy and girl had their chance, but believing that if their love was meant to be they would know each other when they next saw each other, they let it pass them by. One never knows what can happen even within a minute that could change his or her life. In the case of the “100% perfect” couple, all memory of each other was lost and because they did not take hold of their fate, they missed out on true love. The narrator’s tale begins with an optimistic “once upon a time,” but ends with “a sad story, don’t you think” (3). Stories do not always have the ending that was expected when they cheerfully began.

Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. One of the most blatant illusion examples that is seen as reality in The Great Gatsby involves the main character actually; Mr. Gatsby himself.
This drive for the oh so lofty goal is critiqued by Nick in this quote, “ There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion. It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way.” (Pg 95-96 Fitzgerald) Fitzgerald makes use of the rhetorical device allusion in this quote quite unnoticeably . The use of Fitzgerald’s allusion is seen in the latter portion of the quote mentioning feathers decking out Gatsby's “creation” which is a subtle reference to that of male peacocks.
He was not able to battle that reality that he was unsatisfied with life, along these lines he always rationalized to legitimize his activities. At the point when admitting to his wife, Rose, that he was engaging in extramarital relations with another lady and had gotten her pregnant, he said, "You can't locate a superior lady than Rose.

He had thrown himself into it with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way.

Gatsby failed not because he was killed, but because Daisy’s love for Tom can not be changed with material things. All of the main characters have ideas for the perfect life and none were able to achieve them.
