The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby Chapter 3 Pages 41 59 Gatsby One of the reasons that Gatsby has become so famous around New York is that he throws elaborate parties every weekend at his mansion, lavish spectacles to which people long to be invited. Gatsbys party is almost unbelievably luxurious: guests marvel over his Rolls-Royce, his swimming pool, his beach, crates of fresh oranges and lemons, buffet tents in the gardens overflowing with a feast,

and a live orchestra playing under the stars. Liquor flows freely, and the crowd grows rowdier and louder as more and more guests get drunk. Gatsby is again an enigmathough he lives in a garishly ostentatious West Egg mansion, East Eggers freely attend his parties. Nick gets invited to the party Pg. 43 One day, Gatsbys chauffeur brings Nick an invitation to one of these parties. At the appointed time, Nick makes the short walk to

Gatsbys house and joins the festivities, feeling somewhat out of place amid the throng of jubilant strangers. Guests mill around exchanging rumours about their hostno one seems to know the truth about Gatsbys wealth or personal history.

L98y3LJhndE Nick finds Jordan Baker Nick describes himself as feeling purposeless and alone until he finds Jordan Baker. Jordan Bakers friend, Lucille, speculates that Gatsby was a German spy during the war. Nick also

hears that Gatsby once killed a man in cold blood. Owl Eyes Nick and Jordan, curious about their host, set out to find Gatsby. Instead, they run into a middle-aged man with huge, owl-eyed spectacles (whom Nick dubs Owl Eyes) who sits poring over the unread books in Gatsbys library. He is surprised to find that Gatsbys books are real and

not just empty covers designed to create the appearance of a great library. https://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v= MQuzYIceWUA (5:00 6:00) And then we finally meet Gatsby! Nick and Jordan sit at a table with a handsome man who says Nick looks familiar to him. The man introduces

himself as none other than Jay Gatsby. Gatsbys speech is elaborate and formal, and he has a habit of calling everyone old sport. Gatsby and Jordan leave for a private conversation. https://www.youtube. com/watch?v= dFceWZ8PkDE

Nick & Jordan Nick follows the advice of Daisy and Tom and begins seeing Jordan Baker. Nick says that Jordan is fundamentally a dishonest person; he even knows that she cheated in her first golf tournament He realizes that she is dishonest, selfish, and cynical, but he is attracted to her vitality nevertheless. So Until half way through Chapter 3, the reader has seen Gatsby from a distance, heard other

characters talk about him, and listened to Nicks thoughts about him, but has not actually met him. Chapter 3 is devoted to the introduction of Gatsby and the lavish, showy world he inhabits. This chapter continues to heighten the sense of mystery and enigma that surrounds Gatsby, as the low profile he maintains seems curiously out of place with his lavish expenditures. Appearance vs. Reality Chapter 3 also focuses on the gap between perception and reality. At the party, as he looks through Gatsbys

books, Owl Eyes states that Gatsby has captured the effect of theater, a kind of mingling of honesty and dishonesty that characterizes Gatsbys approach to this dimension of his life. The party itself is a kind of elaborate theatrical presentation, and Owl Eyes suggests that Gatsbys whole life is merely a show, believing that even his books might not be real.
