Gatsby throws huge extravagant parties, which is seen many time through the book.
Most of Miller’s plays are directly or indirectly about the American Dream, because ultimately this dream wasn’t going to succed as many people wished (Kennedy 1410). The Death of a Salesman writtten in 1949, was a moving destruction of the whole myth.On a chance to be hard working, straightforward and bring desire were those approaches of the American dream. This prompts success, riches Also to due time-power. Be that as it may, this fantasy for everybody created and empowered avarice, egotistical conduct, pride and competition between each other. Willy Loman was “caught-up” in this American dream which caused a business to develop in the world.

A very important character in this part is the Owl Eyes who helps “expose” Gatsby’s fake appearance emphasizing the hollowness of the wealthy and once again suggesting that the creation of a perfect appearance is the best that can be hoped for. He notices that all of the books in Gatsby’s library are real, however they are all uncut.
Jay Gatsby uses his money to throw extravagant parties, with the purpose of attracting Daisy’s interest. Gatsby’s parties proves that he uses his wealth as a useful tool in his dream to win back Daisy. “They’re such beautiful shirts,” she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. “It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such – such beautiful shirts before” (Fitzgerald 89). Gatsby wanted to gain Daisy by showing her his power and wealth, his aim was to impress her and buy her expensive products to win her back.

The Roaring Fakeness of the 20’s In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, the 1920’s was seen as a luxurious, lavish time to live. Roaring parties that lasted all night broke out and women were challenging the status quo, having a fun, carefree time. In New York resided many young, rich couples, including the famously rich, Jay Gatsby. Throughout The Great Gatsby, Mr. Gatsby and many of the other characters act fake in order to convey a better image of themselves. In order to convey the convincing persona that these people so desire, they take extreme measures to flaunt their wealth such as perfecting their etiquette, fabricating a pale appearance, and overall fulfilling the stereotypical rich-man of the decade.
The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann depicts how a man named Gatsby is lost in the past because of his love for a girl named Daisy.

In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and he champagne and the stars. At high tide in the afternoon I watched his guests diving from the tower of his raft, or taking the sun on the hot sand of his beach while his motor-boats slid the waters of the Sound, drawing aquaplanes over cataracts of foam. On week-ends his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past midnight, while his station wagon scampered like a brisk yellow bug to meet all trains.
