F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.” Fitzgerald had something great to reveal to his readers in The Great Gatsby. To give some background, the novel is about a man, Nick, who is on the outside peering into the lifestyle of the extremely wealthy. His neighbor, Gatsby, has persistently worked for the past few years to meet Daisy again after he woefully departed from her to fight in the war. In the classic novel The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald has something to say and he uses effective diction, symbolism, and characterization to convey his idea that Americans must ceaselessly work towards living their own version of the great American Dream but they must not get caught up in wanting too much.
Nick get 's invited to his neighbor 's house for an extravagant party and he is instantly hooked and drawn into a plot carefully orchestrated by Gatsby in an attempt to lure Daisy back into his life. We will later discover that Gatsby left nothing to chance and that he had spent years planning for his return into Daisy 's life, hoping that he can win her back, earn her affection and dazzle her with his newly acquired wealth, charms and impeccable manners. He even bought a luxurious villa right across the pond from her home, where he spends time observing her through a spyglass. And, his plan seems to be working for a while; his wild, spare - no - expense, lavish parties and his mysterious demeanor seem to swoon Daisy who is unhappy with her philandering husband. His love for Daisy is obsessive and over barring, his hopes unrealistic and his attentions become a burden.
