Chapter 5 Passage 5
Shela Martinez and Megan Reddy
"...Her actual and astounding presence none of it was any longer real" (Fitzgerald 97).
"...He nearly toppled down a flight of stairs" (Fitzgerald 97).
This passage quickly captures the gist of the novel:
It displays Gatsby's devotion, idolization, and yearning for Daisy's approval
He was so overwhelmed by joy and wonder at her presence that he was not as audibly perfect as usual; he stumbled to choose his words
She was the reason for his prosperity and she may be the reason for his downfall
"Sometimes, too, he stared around at his possessions in a dazed way as though in her actual presence and astounding presence none of it was any longer real" (Fitzgerald 97)
"Daisy took the brush with delight...whereupon Gatsby sat down and shaded his eyes..." (Fitzgerald 97)
"He had been full of the idea so long, dreamed it right through to the end..." (Fitzgerald 97)
