Abstract [en]

The concept of the American Dream functions as an influence in almost every part of American society, including literary works. This essay attempts to identify the American Dream as it is reflected in: The Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald), The Assistant (Malamud), Death of a Salesman (Miller), and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Twain). The analysis focuses on the actions and reactions of the main character in each text as his dream fails. Furthermore, the presence and influence of corruption as opposed to honesty and loyalty is examined.
