Find out in what way. And why you need to read it straight away. And Why? Scott Fitzgerald Biography F. Or, as U. We would have enjoyed adding a digression or two here, but this takes us straight back to our novel because the term was coined by none other than its author, the great writer and even greater alcoholic, F. Scott Fitzgerald. And when he does — boy, what a memorable appearance that is! Now, for the real narrator.

Eckleburg is a mock deity representing what is worshipped by secularists, aptly for irony an oculist. Tom compels Nick off the commuter train and forces him to meet his mistress—showing off. Myrtle is in many ways the opposite of Daisy. She is poor, stocky, and not pretty, but she is sensuous--especially when pumping gas. Myrtle loses her head, gets her nose broken, and is crushed by Daisy. Mixed among her scandal and gossip magazines is a copy of a religious book, Simon Called Peter.

She proves to be an airhead, a foolish gambler and a flapper with bobbed hair, rakish false eyebrows and a possessive attitude toward the furniture.

Then Mr. Under the influence of Tom, whiskey and a new dress, the personality of Mrs. McKee is there hoping to leverage his career as a photographer. He compensates with kindness for the cruelty of Tom.

McKee, now in his underwear, has exposed himself as interested only in leverage, but Nick has more than a little fundamental decency. Nick is differentiated as normal, polite and traditional by coming only in response to an invitation.

The girls in yellow spread more gossip, like yellow journalists for the tabloids, one saying Gatsby served in the American army during the war and the other that he was a German spy. The techniques of Impressionism leave a lot to the imagination.

Nick is sitting at a table with Jordan drinking champagne when he strikes up a conversation with a man about his age and admits that he has not met Gatsby the host of this party. After all, as we are to learn, he is really only a roughneck named Jim Gatz. Looking at him more closely in the next paragraph, though, he is an exceptional man at that.

He is incredibly likeable. Gatsby is one of those people who creates a persona to get ahead in the world that becomes his whole self, and because he never looks within he never attains self-knowledge. Hence he cannot read himself or others any more than he reads the books in his library with their uncut pages.

This explains how he could fall in love with such a shallow girl as Daisy. She is the girl he fell in love with in his youth, the girl he lost, the girl who rejected him. No other girl will do. It is not what she is that matters to him, it is what she represents—redemption and the fulfillment of his dream. That Gatsby is a gangster is implied by his real name, Gatz.

Gat was slang for gun. The name Gatsby is a front that looks upper-class.

Edith Wharton thought there should have been more background information about Gatsby for Realism, whereas Fitzgerald is Modernist in simply connecting Gatsby to Chicago without any background. Most of the remaining women were now having fights with men said to be their husbands.

The butler tells Gatsby he is wanted again, this time to answer a call from Philadelphia, where the nation was founded, now another metropolis of crime. On his way out Nick comes upon a car wrecked in the ditch with a missing wheel, one of the episodes most discussed by critics.

This scene ends with an image of Gatsby holding up his hand in farewell. Jordan Baker the golfer is a careless driver of cars and a liar. While Nick is dating her, she lies about leaving a borrowed car in the rain with its top down. Dishonesty in a woman is a thing you never blame deeply.

But I am slow-thinking and full of interior rules that act as brakes on my desires, and I knew that first I had to get myself definitely out of that tangle back home. This is cartoonish satire in the manner of Sinclair Lewis, who is monotonal and lacks the stylistic virtuosity of Fitzgerald. Here the cartoonish names are mixed with mostly ordinary names, maintaining a realistic tone while making joke after joke with a straight face like the tall-tale humor of Mark Twain.

This equates Gatsby with a corrupted yet still idealistic America in an allegory of social history. Americans express their identities with their cars. Fitzgerald shares the scorn of Henry James for the bad taste of the new rich. In the secular modern world Man is his own God. When asked what part of the Middle West he comes from, Gatsby answers San Francisco, an indication of his poor education— contrary to his claim to be an Oxford man—of his unreliability, and of his grandiose extravagance, as if the country were so much larger than it actually is that San Francisco could be in the middle instead of at the end of it.

Wilson straining at the garage pump with panting vitality as we went by. The Christmas cards are merely political gestures, an absurd mockery of what the holiday is supposed to mean.

The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The juxtaposition implies the death of the altruistic American Dream personified in Franklin and his replacement by gangsters like Gatsby and Wolfsheim. It is an irony in literary history that in this novel published in , not long before the Holocaust, a Jewish character is depicted wearing human molars as cuff buttons.

Before the bridal dinner she got drunk and changed her mind, implicitly in love with Gatsby—but she married Tom anyway. Gatsby is enchanted by Daisy, whereas Nick is ambivalent about Jordan and with her only because he has no girlfriend.

Nick is in the awkward position of introducing them to each other. Romanticism has taken many forms. This was a major theme of Henry James and a subject of intense satire by Mark Twain. He had been full of the idea so long…at an inconceivable pitch of intensity. Now, in the reaction, he was running down like an overwound clock. As he throws them one after another onto the pile, their abundance and his casual extravagance imply unlimited wealth.

The prose turns increasingly rich, opulent and lush with colors and textures, musical with alliteration and assonance. Her emotion over shirts is both pathetic and comic. In Gatsby Fitzgerald satirizes them for making a religion of materialism—mansions, cars, yachts, dresses, shirts. Gatsby is immature in having invested all his hope in pursuing a finite goal in the material world—merely plucking a shallow Daisy--rather than pursuing a spiritual goal, an unattainable ideal such as moral perfection in the tradition of Christ or Ben Franklin.

The rich get richer and the poor get—children. It had gone beyond her, beyond everything. Unlike everybody else in the valley of ashes, Gatsby is capable of transcendence. VI Finally the background of Gatsby is revealed, though not in as much detail as Edith Wharton would have preferred. Gatsby is a self-made man in more than the practical sense of Franklin, and in more than the modern Existentialist sense.

He knows no other God. Her acceptance of a green card from anyone who asks contrasts with the faithfulness of Gatsby to the green light at the end of her dock. Hollywood has been a major influence in the loosening of morals as suggested by the presence at the party of producers, a movie actress and her director.

Nick identifies with him in his nostalgia and melancholy, feeling the loss of wonder and beauty that he experienced in his own youth, but unlike Gatsby he is not able to objectify his feelings.

He has outgrown them. The tone, style, and theme of mutability at the end of this chapter is in the tradition of the English Romantic poets, in particular Keats.

He is analogous to Gatsby in that he 1 rose from poverty; 2 became new rich; 3 aspires to be a man of culture and refinement; 4 but apes the aristocracy; 5 can think only in terms of wealth; 6 is vulgar and egotistical; 7 affects to be well educated but makes comical errors proving otherwise; and 8 gives extravagant ostentatious parties.

Is it hot? Is it…? Nick enters the hall of the mansion in a faint wind. Daisy and Jordan lay upon an enormous couch, like silver idols weighing down their own white dresses against the singing breeze of the fans. She gives her dream a few minutes out of her day, in contrast to the total devotion of Gatsby for five years.

She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw. He tries to break the spell by demanding that they all go into the City, losing his cool. Eckleburg, the mock secular deity blind to evil. All the misperceptions and accidents in the novel prepare for the coincidences in which a man fearing his wife has a lover without knowing who begs the lover to help him make enough money to take her away from him, a wife kills the mistress of her husband without knowing it or meaning to, and the mistress is killed by reaching out to the wife she thinks is the husband.

Nobody from Nowhere make love to your wife. The transition from libertine to prig was so complete. She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved any one except me!

Gatsby denies everything but Daisy is terrified and withdraws into herself. Suddenly, after all his effort, his dream is dead. Nick likewise must face the fact that Gatsby is truly a crook like Wolfsheim. In the valley of ashes, a distraught Myrtle trying to escape her husband and wave down the big yellow car she had seen was being driven by Tom when he stopped for gas—runs out into the road and gets hit by Daisy, who keeps on going.

Gatsby denies everything but Daisy is terrified and withdraws into herself. Suddenly, after all his effort, his dream is dead. Nick likewise must face the fact that Gatsby is truly a crook like Wolfsheim. In the valley of ashes, a distraught Myrtle trying to escape her husband and wave down the big yellow car she had seen was being driven by Tom when he stopped for gas—runs out into the road and gets hit by Daisy, who keeps on going.

Myrtle ran from the yellow light into the road like she had a green light. He assumes that Gatsby was driving it, but does not yet reveal that to Wilson.

Gatsby thinks his big yellow car was not observed at the accident and intends to claim that he was driving. Consider how many different characters are implicated in some way. Implicitly the two of them are back together again and cooking up a coldhearted scheme to escape accountability.

This remark is Romanticism dissociated from Reality. By investing such love in a person, especially a Daisy, he was bound to lose it eventually. In Jungian terms, Jay Gatsby fell in love with a projection of his anima—his ideal love.

In truth the shallow Daisy is too narcissistic ever to have felt much love for anyone, not even her daughter. After the death of Myrtle, the neighbor and witness Michaelis stays up until dawn with her distraught husband, George Wilson. Wilson had been running away from her husband, rather than trying to stop any particular car.

Wilson is not a religious man. He invokes God only in desperation. His outburst is comparable to swearing. A victim himself, he lives in the secular wasteland covered with ash.

He is in effect a blind disciple and agent of Eckleburg, embodying the wasteland—the death of religious faith, morality, hope, and truth in the modern world. That is the allegorical meaning of his killing Gatsby. On the other hand he is implicitly right that going to church might have helped Wilson. He calls attention to the fact that Wilson has replaced God with Eckleburg without realizing it.

As a consequence, also without realizing it, in his blindness Wilson will take revenge on an innocent man. Gatsby the gangster is not innocent of murder himself, however. That seems to be an overstatement. After all, there is some justice in Tom and Daisy having to live with each other.
