  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 1

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 1

    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...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 2

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 2

    "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...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 3

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 3

    "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. It certainly is the case here with Gatsby and his lavish parties. No one...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 4

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 4

    Ever heard the old and wise proverb, "If something seems too good to be true, it probably is"? This is especially good advice when it comes to understanding Jay Gatsby as he schmoozes his way through East Egg, making grand claims and wielding his considerable charm and influence. However, his...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 5

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 5

    Nick Carraway: literature's original wingman? Gatsby is plotting to get Daisy alone, but he needs Nick to help him. Gatsby uses whatever he has to get Nick to comply: charm, pity, cajoling. Nick plays along but he's beginning to sense some fray in the fabric of Gatsby's persona and in...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 6

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 6

    "The past is never dead. It's not even past," William Faulkner argued. If Jay Gatsby was to claim a motto, this surely would be it. Chapter 6 finds Gatsby contending with his past as others stumble upon some uncomfortable truths. Gatsby is constantly struggling with trying to drag his dreamlike...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 7

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 7

    Nothing stops a party quite like a gruesome death. It seems like the lights had suddenly come on to reveal smeared mascara and less-than-stellar physiques. This is the beginning of the end, the hangover that must necessarily follow the bender. Gatsby can no longer maintain his carefully structured ruse. Nick...

  • The Great Gatsby Chapter 9

    The Great Gatsby Chapter 9

    "A false friend and a shadow attend only when the sun shines," Benjamin Franklin observed. The lights have come up at Gatsby's parties; those who enjoyed the fruits of his largess abandon him when he is in need. In Chapter 9, Nick is reflecting on the events of a past...

  • Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby

    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. But if this is the story of being an American, it is certainly also...

  • Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby

    Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby

    You might not think of The Great Gatsbyas a coming-of-age novel but for its narrator, Nick Caraway, it is. Nick has a milestone birthday during this unforgettable summer, one that takes him from relatively blissful ignorance to harsh reality. He learns that no one is completely as they seem,...

  • Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby

    Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby

    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...

  • Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby

    Tom Buchanan in The Great Gatsby

    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...

  • Jordan Baker 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,...

  • Myrtle Wilson in The Great Gatsby

    Myrtle Wilson in The Great Gatsby

    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,...

  • Meyer Wolfsheim 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...
