The Great Gatsby
Transcript of The Great Gatsby
"believed in you" #1 "He wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what tht thing was." Gatsby had lived for a dream, lived for the love of a certain woman for so long, he lost himself in the process. #2 "God knows what you've been doing, everything you've been doing. You may fool me, but you can't fool God -Tom #4 Tom was speaking to Daisy, but really Fitzgerald is speaking to all people. ""They are a rotten crowd," I shouted across the lawn. "You're worth the whole damn bunch put together."
I've always been glad I said that. It was the only compliment I ever gave him, because I disapprove of him from beginning to end." #5 proves Gatsby really is great. "He must have felt he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream." #6 ""We have'nt met for many years," said Daisy, her voice as matter-of-fact as it could ever be.
"Five years next November."
The automatic quality of Gatsby's answer set us all back atleast another minute."
#3 awkward. "It makes me sad, because I've never seen such beautiful shirts before." #7 first off, thats pathetic
second, it shows just how materialistic Daisy is
make me feel no sympathy toward her "I see now that this has been a story of the West after all." #8 "And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby's wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy's dock.He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know it was already behind him..." This is one of the saddest parts, becuase little did Gatsby know, Daisy was Tom's, and forever his. Little did he know, he was throwing away his life, while the whole time, not aware of it. #9 "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us." #10 ...a "single dream" that ain't so single!
