The Great Gatsby Scrapbook Project...
Transcript of The Great Gatsby Scrapbook Project...
Tommy Skeet, Afternoon class
Property of Nick Carraway
Dr. T. J. Eckleburg's sign...
"The 'Death Car', as the newspapers called it, didn't stop; it came out of the gathering darkness, wavered tragically for a moment and then disappeared around the next bend" -P. 144
The Green Light
"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us as it eluded us then, that's no matter-tomorrow we will run faster, strectch out our arms father..."
"...he was looking at the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg which had just emerged pale and enormous from the dissolving night.
'God sees everything,' repeated Wilson.
'That's an advertisement, ' Michaelis assured him."
" 'Her voice is full of money,' he said suddenly.
That was it. I'd never understood before. It was full of money-that was the inexhaustible charm that rose and fell in it, the jingle of it, the cymbals' song of it... "
"This is a valley of ashes"
"-a fantastic grotesque gardens where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumnling through the powdery air."
" In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars."
Finally had another chance to be with my Myrtle again. I brought Nick along to see her. Things were going good. I had bought her a puppy, idiot seller didn't know anything about dogs. Anyway we went up to the apartment. She called her sister Cather-something over and also invited over the McKees, god why does she have to do that?! as usual the conversation about how "amazing" that Mr. Mckee was with
"art". I don't know how, but Daisy's name was entering the
That's when Myrtle started mocking her name. I almost
lost it, but I kept my cool,
"- the honor would be Gatsby's it said, if I would attend his 'little party' that night."
VOTED TO BE DRY...
The results have finally come! The U.S. will be a dry country. Having outlawed all of the booze and liquor. The now to be sober nation will now have to undergo serious changes in both morals and in the wallet. How the people will react, is not certain, but I'll tell you now folks... it's not going to be pretty....
James "Jay" Gatz "Gatsby"
The son of Henry C. Gatz, was killed in his own pool, by a madman in grief. The mechanic shot the infamous James Gatz. He was known all around for his parties, the massive, lively gatherings. The thousands of individuals coming and going from that fortress of fun. Though widely known, he actually wasn't. There is very little known who this man was. Many framed him as a "bootlegger" others, a man of a dream that is now destroyed.
-00/00/00 Heading back west, train...
Leaving the East... It all went so fast and yet, the memories are forever. All that had happened. Tom and Daisy gone. Myrtle's murder, Gatsby's murder, the mechanic... And Jordan... The way money could control people. The way that it had a grasp on me... It's like all the wealth and the parties, the lies... It feels good to leave that place. It feels good to be free of all the cheating, blood, and mixed morals. They're all behind me now, gone. Gatsby... though that man was everything that was absolute no good. There was a sense of a greater presentation. To all of us. To what we are all willing to do, to reach that light. Our goal....
