The first few generations are the most difficult, but afterwards the immigrants can be accepted as American people and in many cases slowly become more and more successful as time goes on. The Shimerdas were aware of this, as Atonia explains to Jim shortly after New Year’s Eve why her family would be able to pay off a debt to the Burdens.”But my mama, she want Amrosch for be rich”(59). Immigrants come for the future generations, “For Ambrosch my mama come here.”(59).
The deceptive role of the American Dream, the wrongfully understood meaning of it and the changes it brings in a person is what puts together the overall idea of American Dream. The American dream disguises itself as a deception that will lead to nothing but the complete opposite of what it means. Fitzgerald was clearly addressing an issue he saw in his time and an issue that he thought would be present in the future, he was addressing the fact that people started to mistake the American Dream for a hope of a rich life rather than a better one. Through Gatsby, he showed that a life of material prosperity and glamour can often mask the underlying emptiness and dissatisfaction.
