Transcript of In The Great Gastby, There are many extravagant parties that
By: Alyssa Mabey
In The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, for years on end Jay Gatsby spent his life throwing parties to get himself well know as the
big rich man
who throws wild parties in order to attract Daisy's attention to them to have another chance at love.
"you must know Gatsby."- Jordan Baker pg. 11
Jordan Baker is talking to Nick Carraway about how he lives on West Egg and doesn't even know who Jay Gatsby is. Jordan brings up Gatsby in front of Daisy and that is the first time Daisy had heard his name in years.
"There was music from my neighbor's house through the summer nights. In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whispering and the champagne and the stars. - Nick Carraway pg. 39
Nick is describing his first encounter with one of Gatsby's parties, and how the people appeared and behaved throughout the night.
"On week-ends his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past midnight, while his station wagon scampered like a brisk yellow bug to meet all the trains." - Nick Carraway pg.39
Nick is explaining how busy Gatsby is with his parties and making sure people get home safely from his parties.
"Mondays eight servants, including an extra gardener, toiled all day with mops and scrubbing-brushes and hammers and garden-shears, repairing the ravages of the night before." - Nick Carraway pg. 39
Nick is describing the scene on Monday after one of Gatsbys parties. He is telling us that there is a lot of people that have to clean up the mess people leave after one of his extravagant parties.
"Every Friday five crates of oranges and lemons arrived from a fruiterer in New York." - Nick Carraway pg. 39
This shows you how much alcohol is made for one of Gatsby's parties and how much is being drank by the time one of them is over.
"I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby's house I was one of the few guest who had actually been invited. People were not invited-they went there"-Nick Carraway pg 41
Gatsby only invites certain people that he wants to meet and become friends with. He wants to meet Nick so that he can eventually meet Daisy.
"... the honor would be entirely Gatsby's it said , if I would attend his little party that night."- Nick Carraway pg. 41
This is an example of the invitation Gatsby sent to Nick. Gatsby would like to introduce himself to Nick.
"Anyhow, he gives large parties."- Jordan Baker pg. 49
Jordan is referring to how huge Jay Gatsby's parties are.
"He wants to know if you'll invite Daisy to your house some afternoon and then let him come over."- Jordan Baker pg. 78
This is setting up the meeting of Daisy and Gatsby. Gatsby wants Nick to invite Daisy over for tea so that he can accidentally bump into her while she is at Nick's.
"Two o'clock and the whole corner of the peninsula was blazing with light, which fell unreal on the shrubbery and made thin elongating giants upon the roadside wires." -Nick Carraway pg. 81
Nick is describing what Gatsby's house looks like with all the lights on at night. His house is so big that it looks like the entire corner of the peninsula is on fire.
"I certainly am awefully glad to see you again."-Daisy Buchanan pg. 86
Daisy sees Gastby for the first time at Nick's house. She is happy but also curious to see him.
"I want you and Daisy to come over to my house. I'd like to show her around."-Jay Gatsby pg. 89
Gatsby wants Daisy to go to his place to see how wealthy he has become and how he can provide for her now.
"Perhaps his presence gave the evening its peculiar quality of oppressiveness - it stands out in my memory from Gatsby's other parties that summer."- Nick Carraway pg. 104
Gatsby stayed with Nick all night because Daisy and Tom came to the party and Gatsby wanted to be with Daisy and show her what she has been missing.
"What kind of row are you trying to cause in my house anyhow?"- Tom Buchanan pg. 129
Tom is trying to get the truth from Gatsby and Daisy about what they think they are doing behind his back.
"I spent my Saturday nights in New York, because those gleaming dazzling parties of his were with me so vividly that I could hear the music and the laughter, faint and incessant." - Nick Carraway pg. 179
Nick is talking about how he can't spend the week-ends at his house cause its not the same with Gatsby gone that it haunts him.
Jay Gastby's Parties
In the end Gatsby finally got the chance to get back with Daisy only to find out that what they had between them was really in the past. Daisy leaves Gatsby's to stay with her husband after all and Gatsby is left to his death with only two people who really care about him.
