Do you know anything about Horatio Alger's The American Dream AND The Great Gatsby? Please help!!
For the book "The Great Gatsby" I have to write an essay about the American Dream. The thesis statement is: Great Gatsby demonstrates that Horatio Alger's American Dream is a nightmare. I think i know why.. It's because everything is about money, appearance, etc. But I don't know how to explain this in a one paragraph essay. Can you please help? My English teacher explained nothing to the whole class about Horatio Alger/ The American Dream. Thanks
