The Great Gatsby : Appearance vs Reality
Transcript of The Great Gatsby : Appearance vs Reality
During a conversation between Catherine and Myrtle Catherine inquires about the relationship between Myrtle and her husband. Myrtle laughs and tells her, "I married him because I thought he was a gentleman. I thought he knew something about breeding, but he wasn't fit to lick my shoe." (Fitzgerald 34).
Appearance vs Reality
The Great Gatsby
Nick realized that he was invited to Gatsby's party and that "People were not invited-they just went there...once there, they were introduced by someone who knew Gatsby"(Fitzgerald 41).
Gatsby is separated from the other guests
Daisy's broken heart
The reality between Gatsby and his appearance to others is an enigma. Nick is still unsure about what Gatsby actually does but is told the story from Gatsby himself, "He looked at me sideways-and I knew why Jordan baker had believed he was lying. he hurried the phrase 'educated at Oxford,' or swallowed it, or choked on it, as though it had bothered him before"(Fitzgerald 65).
Gatsby had thought the meeting with Daisy had gone terrible and saying, "Oh, God! in a miserable way... 'this is a terrible mistake,' he said shaking his head from side to side...For half a minute there wasn't a sound. Then from the living room I heard a sort of choking murmur"(Fitzgerald 86).
Fitzgerald wanted to convey the message of broken dreams, how reality can shatter our illusion of what we expect, "There must have been moments even that afternoon when Daisy tumbled short of his dreams not through her own fault, but because of the colossal vitality of his illusion."(Fitzgerald 95).
