The Great Gatsby
Chapter Five Questions
Gatsby's actions in preparing for Daisy's arrival seem both flamboyant and absurd. What does he do? Why?
In order for Gatsby to prepare for Daisy's arrival he begins by sending a man over to cut Nick's grass, as well as an excessive amount of flowers to use as decorations. He acts this way as a result of him picturing this moment for years and it finally happening. He wants to impress Daisy and everything to be perfect.
Discuss Gatsby's actions once Daisy arrives. How do we know he is nervous? How does he try to impress her?
Nick could tell as soon as Gatsby had shown up that he had lost some sleep the night before as well as being a nervous wreck up until the point she arrives. And as soon as she does in fact arrive, he disappears only to be right back at the door one moment later, so it seems as if he just got there and was not waiting for her. Shortly after, during an attempt to act cool, he nearly breaks Nick's clock from leaning on it and knocking it over which only added to the awkwardness that was their reunion. However after Nicks stroll when he returned to his house the awkwardness
seemed to have subsided and everything was going
Describe Daisy's reactions during the course of her meeting with Gatsby
Well, at first it was without a doubt awkward and embarrassing for all parties involved, in spite of the rough start. She eventually seemed to be happy to see Gatsby once more, and she was surely impressed by the tour he gave her, yet at the same time, I believe she was still sad due to her having to return to Tom when all was said and done.
Has Nick been affected by the meeting between Gatsby and Daisy? In what way?
Yes, I think Nick was affected by the meeting between Gatsby and Daisy. Nick got to see that they truly cared for each other, so much so that they forgot Nick was even there.
