The Great Gatsby Chapter 1 Quiz

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.
