Jay Gatsby is one of the major characters, he symbolizes the American dream; as he started small and became the Great Gatsby whose parties and wealth are a part of everyday gossip in East Egg. At first "his parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people—his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all" (The Great Gatsby 105). As for the Buchanans; Daisy was a spoiled rich girl who left Gatsby, at the end, for a more stable life with her husband and his money.

Since Tom was from old money and Daisy had knowledge that he could support her expensive and shallow lifestyle that she has been catered to her entire life. Another character that represents the corruption throughout the novella is Tom Buchanan. He flourishes in a lifestyle of absurd wealth empty of all morals.
