Help! Essay on The Great Gatsby

Faaaack my life. I just found out last night that I have an essay due tomorrow in my English Literature class. Even though I’m working full time with co-op I’m still enrolled in one class because it happened to be a full year course. I think I’ve attended a grand total of two times so…  serves me right. I accept my punishment.

That being said, my essay topic is as follows:

Offer a reading of Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby as a critical commentary on American history and the failure of the “American Dream”. Take the works of at least three of Jefferson (The Declaration), Franklin, Emerson (“Self-Reliance”) and Melville into account in formulating your thesis.

Doesn’t sound that hard, right? Too bad the last time I read The Great Gatsby I was in grade 9 and it probably doesn’t help that the only version I own of the book is Coles Notes.

Anyone have any helpful suggestions or perhaps an essay or two to help me out??
