    Welcome to West Egg and East Egg... where the class divisions are real and the points truly matter! In creating his divided world, Fitzgerald is giving a nod to his literary predecessor, Johnathan Swift, whose novel "Gulliver's Travels" describes a society where arbitrary rules are established and followed, where greater meant more privileged and lesser meant un-moneyed. Such is the case in Gatsby's world, and in Nick's, where all characters are superficially defined by their means.

At the heart of this chapter is Myrtle, a woman clinging to false hopes. Chapter 2 is also the reader's first introduction to Dr. Eckleberg and his unusual physical appearance.

    "All that glisters is not gold," the Prince of Morocco warns in Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. These wise words should be applied to any situation or person who seems too good to be true.

  • Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby

    The story of Jay Gatsby in many ways is the story of being an American: you can start from the bottom and work your way up. You can change your name and your position in life.

    Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby by enotes

    Daisy Buchanan might be one of literature's most famous female characters, but while she glitters, the reader steadily discovers she is not gold. Gatsby might pine for her, but it doesn't take long to figure out that his idolatry is undeserved. She has been, if not outright cruel, dismissive and inattentive, to her marriage, her daughter, and the man who has pined for her affections for years. While Daisy could not prevent Gatsby's mooning, she has a hand in the tragedy that is to come.

  • Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby
    Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby by enotes

    It seems F. Scott Fitzgerald was none too fond of jocks. Tom Buchanan is about as grating a character as there is in all of literature. Obtuse, dismissive, and self-absorbed... there is nothing really to like about the man. The more he opens his mouth, the more moral failings he reveals. Maybe the only credible thing Tom ever says is to Nick, when he advises, "Don't believe everything you hear." It would be nice to dismiss him but his actions ultimately wind up affecting everyone in the novel. Be sure you understand the motivations and ramifications of Tom's character by taking our exclusive, interactive quiz to Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby.

  • Jordan Baker in The Great Gatsby

    Jordan Baker... Daisy Buchanan's wing woman. If you can make inferences about Daisy through the company she keeps, you might do well to assume both of them are not exactly moral compasses. Jordan has some shady things going on in her personal life, and while she often dresses in white, it is hardly a symbol of purity. Make sure you understand Jordan's character in The Great Gatsby by taking our exclusive, interactive quiz.

  • Myrtle Wilson in The Great Gatsby
    Myrtle Wilson in The Great Gatsby by enotes

    Pathetic, party of one? Myrtle thinks she fits in. She thinks that she is mimicking those with "old money" so well that no one will know of her less-than-stellar background. The harder she tries, the worse she comes off. Instead of being sophisticated, she sounds vulgar. Instead of being elegant, she overdoes it. Her aspirations to class may not be any more or less pathetic than others, but they are definitely more transparent. Social climbing lets a lot of people look up your skirt. Be sure you understand what Fitzgerald is trying to say about society in general and Myrtle in particular by taking our exclusive interactive quiz to Myrtle Wilson in The Great Gatsby.

  • Meyer Wolfsheim in The Great Gatsby

    One look at Meyer Wolfsheim's cufflinks ought to tell you that this is not someone you want to mess around with. Gatsby, however, obviously has had dealings with this shady character, an association which should raise questions about Gatsby himself. Like the "wolf" that is part of his name, this character is predatory and dangerous, and like a dangerous animal, Wolfsheim's chief concern is for himself and his fortunes. Be sure you understand the importance of this character by taking our exclusive, interactive quiz to Meyer Wolfsheim in The Great Gatsby. Rank your score against others and see how you compare.
