The Great Gatsby is about a man who fights his way from lower to upper class, only to find that his wealth cannot afford him the privileges enjoyed by those born into the upper class. He eventually gets killed after he attempts to get back with his old love, Daisy Buchanan and reveals that love is very complex.
