Why does some call it the greatest american novel of all time?

Can you give 3 examples of recurring color symbolism throughout the novel?

If Gatsby is a fraud and a criminal, why is the novel called "The Great Gatsby"?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

a) The language. I think it's a novel that takes ordinary American language and makes it unearthly. The story that it tells of somebody trying to be better, trying to be greater, trying to be more is certainly a story we identify as an American story. It's the way Fitzgerald tells it that just takes your breath away
b)Green shows many thoughts, ideas, attitudes, and choices that Gatsby has throughout the story. White represents the stereotypical façade that every character is hiding behind. red showing danger

c)Gatsby has the ability to transform his dreams into reality. His talent for self-invention (he even changes his name) is what gives Gatsby his quality of “greatness.”

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
