American Dream and Philosopher suggestions?

My name is Joyce and I'm doing an American dream essay on the Great Gatsby and the American dream. We must use a philosopher's theory and reason as to why the dream is an illusion or not. I had Plato in mind, as he did have theories on the ideal and non-ideal word, but I'm not sure which of his works that comes from and I must know that work. Pls help if you guys have any idea as to what his work is and/or suggest a philosopher whose theories can relate to the American Dream (and include from which of his or her work) Thank you for your help in my search!
