"The Great Gatsby" Ch. 4 and 5
Transcript of "The Great Gatsby" Ch. 4 and 5
"The exhilerating ripple of her voice was a wild tonic in the rain" (85). Nick uses strong diction and imagery to describe Daisy.
"I looked once more at them and they looked back at me, remotely, possesed by intense life" (96). Nick uses personificationton to explain the moment.
"I had no girl whose disembodied face floated along the dark cornices and blinding signs" (80). Nick uses imagery to express jealousy of his friends.
"His voice was solemn, as if the memory of that sudden extinction of a clan still haunted him" (65). Nick is observing Gatsby's emotions.
Juxtaposition (71)- the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.
Jonquils (90)- a widely cultivated narcissus with clusters of small fragrant yellow flowers and cylindrical leaves, native to southern Europe and northeastern Africa.
Corrugated (92)- (of a material, surface, or structure) shaped into alternate ridges and grooves.
Confused- I don't know the significance of Nick clarifying many different groups of people that live in each Egg in the fourth chapter.
Sympathetic- I feel bad for Nick having to be the middle man between Gatsby and Daisy.
Emotional- I am happy that Gatsby got to be with his love after a total of five long years, but I am not happy about Daisy and Tom's relationship, with both of them cheating on each other.
Why does Gatsby tell Nick about himself including his family?
How did Gatsby convince Nick to help him out with Daisy?
I can, in a way, relate to Nick because I have also at times been the middle man or messenger. We both try to help others without giving it a second thought. We both listen with open ears too.
My opinions on Daisy and Gatsby have changed the most. Daisy used to be more of a caring individual towards others, but now she is more focused on her own feelings. Gatsby, at first, seemed to be shy and never thinking of himself, but now he is self centered and determined.
