Writeacher, here is a summary I urgently need you to check. Thank you.

1) Gatsby is an enigmatic figure, a mysterious “self-made man”, who appears to have achieved the American dream of immense wealth.
2) He is the owner of a palatial mansion where he holds fabulously extravagant parties, open to virtually everyone given all through the summer. Nick discovers emptiness at the heart of this glamorous world.
3) The emptiness caused by his unhappy love for Daisy Buchanan, whom he had met when he was too poor to merry her, Daisy is now unhappily married to Tom Buchanan, a brutal representative of the wealthy families, who has a squalid love affair with the wife of a garage owner.
4) Gatsby has now made the fortune he so desperately wanted. All he can do with his wealth is to buy a house in the neighborhood where Daisy lives and give party after party, hoping one day she will appear at one of them and fall in love with him again.
5) Although he is successful in this, his naivety and illusions are too fragile a basis for any lasting relationship, and Daisy herself is shallow and indecisive.
