“You dream, you. You absolute little dream.”

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter VII) on Rap Genius


The motif of dreams shows itself. The fact that Daisy has a beautiful daughter is probably the only aspect of her current marriage that she finds fruitful.

For Gatsby, the irony is sharp. The child is a reminder of the past, and potentially future, failure of his own dream.
