Transcript of Copy of dusk to stars

“They’re a rotten crowd,” I shouted across the lawn. “You’re worth the whole damn bunch put together.”
I’ve always been glad I said that. It was the only compliment I ever gave him, because I disapproved of him from beginning to end.
First he nodded politely, and then his face broke into that radiant and understanding smile, as if we’d been in ecstatic cahoots on that fact all the time.

“They’re a rotten crowd,” I shouted across the lawn. “You’re worth the whole damn bunch put together.”
I’ve always been glad I said that. It was the only compliment I ever gave him, because I disapproved of him from beginning to end.
First he nodded politely, and then his face broke into that radiant and understanding smile, as if we’d been in ecstatic cahoots on that fact all the time.
This was spoken to Gatsby by Nick in the morning after Daisy killed Myrtle.
Old money wealth will lead to rejection and corruption of everyone around them.
Nick and Gatsby spent the night together
The bad behavior was demonstrated by the old money but mostly affected the new money.
Nick "old money" finally changed a little by praising and recognizing Gatsby yet managed to insult him by saying he never approved of him.
Gatsby’s smile “broke” (154). Essentially ‘breaking’ Gatsby’s facade of old wealth.
Nick says 'damn' to describe the rotten crowd as if they are damned or he is damning them even though he is one of them.
"I'd be damned if I'd go in" (142)
rotten = decay
Their wealth and greed is decaying their morals and values
“he wanted to talk about Daisy” (148)
“conspiring together” (145)
“d[oesn’t] want to leave Gatsby” (144)
“remember[s] something and turn[s] around” (154)
while Tom and Daisy were
The Old money group is considered the "rotten crowd"
"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy--they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness..." (179).
Rotten
Damn
"you're worth the whole damn bunch put together" (154)
"He talked a lot about the past, and I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy" (110).
"My God, I believe the man's coming [...] Doesn't he know she doesn't want him? [...] they trotted quickly down the drive, [...] just as Gatsby, with hat and light overcoat in hand, came out the front door" (103).
YOU SUCK !!!! GO BACK TO EATING DIRT.
Broke & Radiant
radiant = energy
Gatsby's "radiant" smile is parallel to Myrtle's “vitality” (25).
