Myrtle's lover, George, then goes and kills Gatsby. Nick hosts an small funeral for Gatsby and then moves back to the mid-west to escape the horror he feels for the people around Gatsby.
The early 1920's, also known as the "Roaring Twenties", were known as one of the most rowdiest times in american history. World War 1 had just ended and a new era of modern living was spreading from small towns to large cities. Its was also during the prohibition. It was a time of confusion that leaded up to the Great Depression. It was a loss of morality in the U.S.. Even though, Americans still seemed to have a lot of fun during this time. No book like
The Great Gatsby
captures this care-free and reckless time.
The major conflict in the Great Gatsby was man vs. self. Gatsby, who is in love with Daisy, does anything to make himself appealing toward her. Gatsby buys a house across the bay and throws parties, expecting Daisy to come back. He wears the finest suits money can buy just to impress her.
During this project, I learned a lot about the "Roaring Twenties", how Gatsby lived his life chasing Daisy, and the lifestyles of people chasing the american dream during this period. Also, I learned about the different conlict within the book.
My product is my attire. The clothes I'm wearing represent Gatsby. The outside is well- maintained, exquisite, and high-class. On the inside, is how Gatsby actually is, fraudulent.
I chose to use product because it is a remarkable way to show Gatsby's true self. It shows how people of this time dress. Also, I don't like to miss a chance to dress up.
Back in the 1920s, men during this time wore suits for almost every occasion. For most people this showed good social skills. This suit represents how Gatsby is seen by others. He was known for his elegance, class, an for being wealthy. Inside the suit, the dress shirt is ripped and dirty, symbolizing Gatsby's true self. On the inside, Gatsby is really lowdown, horrid, and vile. Gatsby really didn't care about Daisy's feelings in the end, he just wanted a trophy women to prove he was the best.
Jay Gatsby was in love with Daisy. Gatsby left to war and Daisy didn't wait and married Tom Buchanan. Gatsby come back looking for Daisy. Gatsby can't find her so he starts to earn money illegally through bootlegging. He buys a mansion across the bay and all the finest clothing. He buys these things for Daisy just waiting for her to come back.
