Jay Gatsby’s death at the end of the novel portrayed that there is no way possible to attain the American Dream, even any regular dream. Matter of fact, hardly anything that occurs in our dreams occurs in reality. The line that distinguishes between fiction and reality is ‘dream’ itself. When a person “dreams” of his/her future, he/she is not letting go of the determining line between fiction and reality, but if those dreams can become reality, then those are not dreams anymore, they are goals, and there is an immense difference between a goal and a dream. One can work towards a goal, but not a dream.

His mom was also dying because she didn’t have anyone by her side when Piri was in the South.
Freud’s discovery of the unconscious; identity is unknown, it’s in our psychic life and we’re not able to cross the barrier of unconscious into the psychic life.

Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll’s lawyer Mr. Utterson finds out that Dr. Jekyll is leaving his entire property to a mysterious person named Mr. Hyde.

Willy Loman and the Common Misconception of the “American Dream” Throughout Arthur Miller’s play, Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman chases after the popular “American Dream” of the 1900s-to be a successful businessman with the white picket fence around your house, modern technology (such as cars and refrigerators), and the satisfaction of being able to provide for your own family. Unfortunately, this chase causes the Loman family to fail in their jobs and eventually leads Willy to commit suicide. It is easy to blame Willy for his death by simply calling him crazy, however there are many different factors that added to Willy’s fragile state. Fred Ripkoff states that in order to understand the identity crisis of Loman (and other Miller characters), that “it is necessary to understand shame’s relationship to guilt and identity.” (1). Willy struggled with finding his identity because he was so caught up in his chase for his “American Dream”.

It creates a happiness and builds something to work towards. However, some parents chase after goals in which they just are not suited for. For instance, in “Death Of A Salesman“, Willy, the father of Biff and Happy, creates a false sense of a positive outlook on searching for a career and what it takes by saying that, “The man who makes an appearance in the business world, the man who creates personal interest, is the man who gets ahead.” (Miller Line 625-627). In fact, these ideas are the exact opposite of what it takes to be successful in the business world. Willy thinks that if he were to tell the truth to his kids, they wouldn’t respect him for not being as successful as he claims to be.
7 October 2015 The delusional Dreamer The Great Gatsby, not so “great” of a man. The title of the book can be viewed from many different points. Gatsby, in fact is the opposite of great. Gatsby is seen as the man that follows his dreams and never gives up, but in reality he is just the delusional dreamer with immature ideas and goals.
