Concluding Synopsis Question/Answer How would the story be different if it was told from an alternate perspective?
What do you think Daisy was thinking when she saw Gatsby for the first time after 5 years?
How do you think Daisy and Gatsby would have acted if Nick wasn't present during the reunion? The same or differently? Use of light/dark imagery Locations/different settings Overall, it is easy to see how everything in this chapter realistically reflects the behaviors and mentality that people had during this time period. Fitzgerald accurately shows the values and morals of people in this new movement and analyzes them through Nick's character throughout the story. Each of the symbols throughout this chapter helps to express the themes Fitzgerald includes in the story to show what was important to people living at the time. By including characters that are similar to people in the 1920s, this novel clearly represents the time period. Colors
