The Great Gatsby is one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most iconic books. This story shows life in the 1920s, at the peak of the economic boom. It’s about the main character, also the narrator, meeting and befriending his neighbor named Gatsby. He becomes one of Gatsby’s closest friends, meeting Daisy, Jordan, Tom, and others. The book became so popular it was turned into a movie.
It is first observed that Gatsby feels as though wealth is the only way to be worthy of Daisy 's love, and that he believes it is the only reason Daisy even married Tom in the first place, because Tom was a wealthy man who showed interest in her, not because of who he is as a person. His outlook displaying this belief originated in his youth, because of the influence of Dan Cody. Dan Cody was a millionaire who, after meeting Gatsby at a lake while he was still only the son of unsuccessful farmers, employed him for five years and in turn exposed Gatsby to the grand and lavish life that he had never known. Before his encounter, Gatsby’s name was James Gatz but he changed it in order to appear more like the type of people who Cody Would have known. However Nick does in fact state (after hearing the story from Gatsby himself) that “I suppose that [Gatsby] had the name ready for a long time...The truth was that Jay Gatsby of West Egg, Long Island sprang from his platonic conception of himself ” (98).
