After this whole experience he wanted to be wealthy and powerful and promised himself to become rich one day. He did become one of them but not as an honest person like the others know- Daisy has known him as a businessman but he turned out to be a bootlegger. He involved in illegal alcohol distribution while alcohol was prohibited in America. The other grimmer act he has done was to hit a woman who was Tom Buchanan’s mistress and then ran away. Actually, he was not driving the car but he was in the car so he is as guilty as the driver since he should have called the ambulance rapidly.
The title of the novel is the “The Great Gatsby”, and I don’t think there is any character more interesting to discuss his character throughout the story more than him. Gatsby is a man born in North Dokata and was enrolled in the university of St. Olaf. He was the type of man who longed for money. His immense desires for wealth lead him to take the dreadful road. He dropped out of college and got involved with a crime organization that gave him tasks forbidden by the law in return for loads of money.
Jay Gatsby changed the most as a character because He started the novel as a rich and extravagant man with a mysterious background, but it was revealed that he didn 't start his life this way, James Gatz was a seventeen-year-old fisherman on Lake Superior who had big dreams that he thought he never could make a reality. But he adopted a persona that modelled the ideal person through the eyes of a seventeen-year-old, and met his good companion and friend Mr. Dan Cody. But towards the end of the book the window that is Jay Gatsby is shattered when Gatsby tries to reveal his love for Daisy to Tom, but Tom perseveres, and reveals that he did some research into Gatsby and exposed his shady dealings. This shattered the fragile persona of Jay Gatsby which reduced him, in essence to a very rich James Gatz. Gatsby’s death, even changed his character as his father made an appearance and led him to explain how highly he regarded his son.

Eventually after returning from World War I, he moves to West Egg New York to attempt to win the love of his life back, Daisy Buchanan whom lives in East Egg and is married to Tom Buchanan. Unfortunately, it is obvious to Gatsby she is not able to accept him for who he is because of the difference in social status and wealth between them.
Eventually, in his life, he becomes one of the richest and most famous people in America; it many ways it would appear that he had achieved the American Dream. However, if we analysed Gatsby’s life closer there is still things that were not accomplished in his life, specifically his love of his Daisy, marries someone else. Furthermore, while he is well known, he lacks many true friends, and finally, that even though he became rich, people still rejected him calling him a bootlegger. Fitzgerald uses The Great Gatsby to say that the American Dream is never truly attainable as there are always going to be unintended ups and downs, as seen through Gatsby’s failures and shortcomings. Throughout the book, many characters say that Gatsby was a
He used to steal trains and land from the rich people to distribute them among the poor population. That´s the reason he was considered the Robin Hood of the Mexican Revolution by the poor and oppressed. He was inspired by the revolts conducted by Madero and during that time his military career grew. Then Villa and Emiliano Zapata met and decided to go to Mexico City to remove Carranza from power.

Scott F. Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby is told from the perspective of Nick Carraway when he meets Jay Gatsby, who has been trying to achieve wealth so he can feel worthy of the woman of his dreams. Gatsby always dreamed of being rich but was born to a poor farm family. A conflict in the novel is between the new rich, characterized by Gatsby, and the old rich, characterized by Tom, and if the two types of rich are equal.
