How can one describe the narrator's home in "The Great Gatsby?"
3 Answers | Add Yours
Nick describes his home in Chapter 1 of the novel. It is a small home on the island of West Egg, "squeezed between" two opulent mansions, one of them Gatsby's. Nick's cottage is an "eye-sore" that has been "overlooked" and co-exists peacefully with the homes of millionaires. In the same way, Nick comes from modest means, but is surrounded by the very rich, including the Buchanans and Gatsby himself. Nick ironically remarks that he only pays $80 a month for "a view of the water, a partial view of [Gatsby's] lawn, and the consoling proximity of millionaires."
