The Great Gatsby

Comment on the narrators words "and only the dead dream fought on" (p.129)

This is a question taken from the Klett English Edition.

The dead dream is Gatsby's; Daisy and Gatsby have been found out, Tom has exposed Gatsby........ Daisy isn't going to leave her husband, and her husband can easily forgive her because he doesn't love her. Gatsby's dream was Daisy, but that's all it ever was....... in this scene the dream is dead and exposed, it was the only thing that truly lived in the room because no one else had a vested interest in it.
