    Well, there are several main ideas, but the biggest themes are the power of love and the deception of the American dream. Gatsby is called great because that is how people perceive him (with his money and charm) but it is ironic once you read the end and realize his humble beginnings. It also have another meaning in the sense that he is great for having a dream and trying to obtain it, although that is ironic too since he used illegal means to gain his wealth. Hope this helps.

    The main idea of this is book is it's the story of Jay Gatsby told my his friend Nick. Gatsby is your main character, he falls in love with a married woman, who is Nick's cousin, and they have an affair. Well at the same time Nick's cousin's husband is having an affair with a woman in New York. Once all of this comes out, three of your main characters dies..including Gatsby. Which is why the story is called the Great Gatsby.

In different words, stop being lazy, study the darn factor your self.
