Of more vital importance, however, is whether Athene sides with the males or females throughout the play.

gatdream Futility of the American Dream Exposed in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby - The Great Gatsby:  The Futility of the ‘American Dream’ The ideal of the ‘American Dream’ has hardly changed over the past century.
