The Great Gatsby Chapter 2 Quiz

Created by Jamie Wheeler

"The Valley of Ashes" likely evokes images of death and darkness, as well it should. In Chapter 2, the reader begins to see the less-than-lovely underside of many of the characters who cheat, lie, and make other poor choices. 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.
