In this passage from The Great Gatsby, the diction, or word choice, and the content itself create a dream-like world.The writer reveals Gatsby’s thoughts as a “constant, turbulent riot”–irrational, rather than rational.  “Grotesque and fantastic conceits haunted him in his bed at night”–grotesque and fantastic situations and stories run through his mind.  The “moon soaked with wet light his tangled clothes upon the floor”–“wet” light is a description one would not think of if fully conscious.  Gatsby’s thoughts are of “fancies.”Other words contribute to the dream-like state as well:  drowsiness, oblivious, reveries, imagination, unreality, and “fairy’s wing.”  The effect is certainly surreal and dream-like.Incidentally, the writer here depicts a moment that the romantic poets considered to be the most creative moment a human mind experiences:  the moment between waking and sleeping.  The idea is that rational constraints are inactive at this moment, but full unconsciousness has not yet set in.
