The Great Gatsby: Jordan Baker
Superiority Complex
Jordan does not feel intimidated by men.
“ I was almost surprised into murmuring an apology for having disturbed her by coming in.” (Pg. 13).

Jordan can't endure being at disadvantage and will lie to cover up her insecurities.
“She was incurably dishonest. She wasn’t able to endure being at a disadvantage…” (Pg. 63).

Modern Women & Link
Modern Women
Modernized women, especially for the 1920's
Acts differently than a traditional woman
Lives her life how she wants to, not the way society tells her
Doesn't depend on the other characters, including the men in her life
Does what she wants and others seem to follow along with what she has in mind

Links the Characters in the World of Gatsby
Relatively mentioned in the novel infrequently, still essential to the story
Gatsby confides in Jordan about his love for Daisy
A connection between Nick and Gatsby is created because of Jordan
1974 Movie
Not as modest and her dishonest character is emphasized more than in the novel
In the middle of all gossip throughout the book
Very involved in the relationship of Gatsby and Daisy, leaving her less involved in her own relationships
When Jordan asked Nick to stay, he said no and she politely walked back inside

2013 Movie
Nick and Jordan are barely together in the 2013 version where as in the 1974 movie, and the book, the two are almost portrayed as a couple
Barely even seems present in the movie as a whole
Only contributing the the storyline of the movie rather than creating herself as a character
Played match-maker for Daisy and Gatsby
Seemed very unsettled or unsatisfied with the outcome of the love story but does not do anything to fix the issue
Favorable Movie
We preferred the 1974 version of
The Great Gatsby
movie as it was a better representation of the novel as a whole.
