Question 1 Explain why Nick thinks Gatsby is “great”. Through the duration of The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway is the unreliable, and at times judgemental narrator. He characterizes the people surrounding him with quick judgements and fragments of details that he knows about their lives, with very little context as to how he learned this, or what the significance is. He speaks a biased truth through his own eyes, and leaves little room for counterargument. This often leaves the reader wonder what the truth about certain encounters really is, and whether or not Nick was actually being truthful.
I see no blood, no wound.— Lysander, if you live, good sir, awake.”(II,ii) When Lysander wakes up he falls instantly in love with Helena and says, “(waking) And run through fire I will for thy sweet sake. Transparent Helena! Nature shows art That through thy bosom makes me see thy heart. Where is Demetrius? Oh, how fit a word Is that vile name to perish on my sword!”(II,ii).
The Great Gatsby is one of the most highly regarded pieces of American literature to date. Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, this narrative follows a group of high-society socialites in the 1920s, and scrupulously characterizes why that particular decade is entitled to the appellation ‘The Roaring Twenties’. With the non-inclusion of the raconteur, Nick Carraway, all of the characters have an exceeding amount of wealth, and as such their personalities are affected by this, often in surprising ways with unforeseen consequences. Taking into account the different social conventions and self-understandings of the Rich characters, they all have different levels of which they are able to disentangle different kinds of values, such as the material value associated with economic wealth, the value attributed to a human object of desire, the aesthetic value of a beautiful object, and the moral values by which they assess a person’s character. Nick’s assertion that Gatsby is worth more than “the whole damn bunch put together” is supported by Gatsby’s difference in opinion of ideals from the other rich.
The readers can sense that Havisham is extremely justified in her feelings and she blames her ex-fiance entirely for this. Her lover was the one who made her who she is now; she is isolated, angry, and even mad. Ever since the day of their scheduled marriage, Havisham believes that love is like a “red balloon” bursting - love does not last forever. Love is fragile. Love is nothing but an illusion.
Mr. Casaubon dies suddenly and doesn’t complete his book. Lydgate lives a painful life and dies of grief in a young age.

To start with, there are individuals like the Buchanans and Jordan Baker who were naturally introduced to riches. Their families have had cash for some ages, "thus" they are "old cash." Daisy, Tom, Jordan, and the unmistakable social class they speak to are maybe the story's most elitist gathering, forcing refinements on the other individuals of riches (like Gatsby) construct less in light of how much cash one has, yet where that cash originated from and when it was gained. For the "old cash" individuals, the way that Gatsby (and innumerable other individuals like him in the 1920s) has just barely as of late procured his cash is reason enough to hate him. In their state of mind, he can't in any way, shape, or form have a similar refinement, sensibility, and taste they have.

“When I came back from the East last autumn I felt that I wanted the world to be in uniform and at a sort of moral attention forever; I wanted no more riotous excursions with privileged glimpses into the human heart. Only Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this book, was exempt from my reaction—Gatsby, who represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn” (Fitzgerald 4).

After meeting, Gatsby whisked Nick away to Gatsby’s grand parties, gantlet outings to the city, but all for the chance, for Gatsby to meet Daisy, Nick’s cousin.
