F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby"contains plenty of irony. Perhaps the best example is the fact of the American Dream merely being an illusion. Gatsby went from rags to riches but really all he wanted was love. THe money he made meant nothing to him. The filthy rich of East Egg were not happy more than vacuous and spoiled people who had little meaning in their lives.
