The Great Gatsby

“It had enough colored lights to make a Christmas tree of Gatsby’s enormous garden. On buffet tables, garnished with glistening hors d'oeuvre, spiced baked hams crowded against salads of harlequin designs and pastry pigs and turkeys bewitched to a dark gold” (Fitzgerald 40).

Jay Gatsby
Nick Carraway
“I’m inclined to reserve all judgements, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me” (Fitzgerald 1).

"I wanted the world to be in uniform and at a sort of moral attention forever” (Fitzgerald 2).

East Egg
Tom and Daisy are “enormously wealthy” (Fitzgerald 6), and live “Across the courtesy bay white palaces of fashionable East Egg glittered along the water” (Fitzgerald 5).

“Even in college his freedom with money was a matter for reproach” (Fitzgerald 6).

Tom is a man with “a hard mouth and supercilious manner”, and “a body capable of enormous leverage” (Fitzgerald 7).
Daisy Buchanan

Tom Buchanan
Jordan Baker
Valley of Ashes
The Valley is “a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens; where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and, finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air” (Fitzgerald 23).

The town is swarming with “gray cars” and “ash-gray men”.

“‘Terrible place, isn’t it,’ [...] exchanging a frown with Doctor Eckleburg” (Fitzgerald 26).

Myrtle Wilson
George Wilson
New York

“The eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic [...] they look out [...] from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles” (Fitzgerald 23).

“Wilson? He thinks she goes to see her sister in New York. He’s so dumb he doesn’t know he’s alive” (Fitzgerald 26).

His feet “were startlingly white” (Fitzgerald 28).

Nick observes on the wall in the hotel room; “a hen sitting on a blurred rock. Looked at from a distance, however, the hen resolved itself into a bonnet, and the countenance of a stout old lady” (Fitzgerald 29).

“The whiskey distorted things, because it didn’t make any sense” (Fitzgerald 29).

"Distinguished nothing except a single green light, minute and far away” (Fitzgerald 21).

"If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him [...] as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away" (Fitzgerald 2).
“He was a blond, spiritless man, anæmic, and faintly handsome” (Fitzgerald 25).

“He’s so dumb he doesn’t know he’s alive" (Fitzgerald 26).
“Her face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, bright eyes and a bright passionate mouth, but there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget” (Fitzgerald 9).

“‘What’ll we plan?’ She turned to me helplessly: ‘What do we plan?’” (Fitzgerald 11).

“Then suddenly she threw her napkin on the table and excused herself and went into the house” (Fitzgerald 14).
”It’s really his wife that are keeping them apart” (Fitzgerald 33).

She is “a thickish figure of a woman [...] faintly stout, but she carried her surplus flesh sensuously as some women can [...] the nerves of her body were continually smouldering” (Fitzgerald 25).
