Nick caraway, daisy Buchanan, and jay gatsby By johnie jarvis

Theme

Fitzgerald portrays the 1920s as an era of decayed social and moral values, evidenced in its overarching cynicism, greed, and empty pursuit of pleasure. The reckless jubilance that led to decadent parties and wild jazz music—epitomized in The Great Gatsby.

Jay Gatsby

Triggered

"Gatsby, what Gatsby".

School, I never truly got the knack of. I could never focus on things I didn't want to learn.

Daisy Buchanan

Flawless

Daisy used to be in a relationship with jay but she thought he died in the war so now she is married to Tom. She looks unhappy.

Nick Caraway

Angry with the world

The biggest third wheel in movie and novel history. Nick is the narrator but not the protagonist. He helped get jay and daisy together.

Symbol

THE GREEN LIGHT

Situated at the end of Daisy’s East Egg dock and barely visible from Gatsby’s West Egg lawn, the green light represents Gatsby’s hopes and dreams for the future. Gatsby associates it with Daisy, and in Chapter 1 he reaches toward it in the darkness as a guiding light to lead him to his goal. Because Gatsby’s quest for Daisy is broadly associated with the American dream, the green light also symbolizes that more generalized ideal. In Chapter 9, Nick compares the green light to how America, rising out of the ocean, must have looked to early settlers of the new nation.

" You always have a green light that burns all night at the end of your dock."
