You may wish to approach a theme of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby such as the illusionary quality of the American Dream and discuss the illusions of Jac Gatsby as well as the illusionary qualities of other characters along with the settings of West Egg and East Egg.
Or, with another approach, you may wish to examine how Fitzgerald satires the nouveau riche in his tableau of the Jazz Age. In doing this, you will want to consider such characters as Meyer Wolfscheim who point to the hypocrisy of Jay Gatsby's (as one of the nouveau riche) pretense of social status.
