In the beginning of the story, Jay Gatsby is a mystery and we are left wondering what is up with this Gatsby man that everyone talks about yet no one knows. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays Gatsby as the
Nick is beginning his new eastern life for the first time. Also, it is a similar situation with Gatsby as his life seems to restart as well as he attempts to regain Daisy’s love for him. Joy and fun come along with the chaos that summer brings. All the parties Gatsby throws in his house are not your typical house party. “People were not invited--they just went there.
The parties that Gatsby had put on excessive parties every weekend with food, decorations, music, dancing and more. He could care less about them or his guests, all he cared about was himself getting the woman of his dreams with the amount of money he states to have. Color is a factor of imagery, such as “yellow cocktail music,” “turkey that bewitched to gold” (Fitzgerald 5), or Gatsby’s bright yellow car. Color allows us to picture the scenes in our own imaginations before seeing it in the big screen. Fitzgerald did a phenomenal job with, considering there were absolutely no pictures in the book, by simply putting them into meaningful words.
This shows that Gatsby did not find friends, happiness, nor love with all the money that he had. In the novel, Gatsby was "friends" with Mr. Wolfshiem, and had hundreds of people over to his parties, yet none of these characters showed up to his funeral; not even Daisy who told him she loved him. Gatsby had a fortune but he never found happiness with it. The only time Gatsby was happy was when he was poor and had Daisy.
“The Harlem Renaissance and the Blues” Birthed in the Mississippi Delta, the blues would have un-denying roots from the South. However, long before any form of blues genre came about, slave music expressed the sorrows of the African American experience. At the turn of the 20th century black communities in the south continued the tradition of musical expression by performing in small shacks all around the Delta. It was in these juke joints, that famous artist such as Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters first performed. With the cotton industry taking a turn for the worst many African Americans were living very undesirable.
Nick would watch as, “On weekends his Rolls-Royce became an omnibus, bearing parties to and from the city between nine in the morning and long past midnight…” (3.41) Gatsby became famous around New York because he threw elaborate parties every weekend at his mansion. Dozens of people attended Gatsby’s parties even when they weren’t invited, causing an influx of guests making him a popular host. ONce every two weeks, “...buffet tables, garnished with glistening hors-d’oeuvre, spiced baked hams...gins and liquors...a whole pitful of oboes and trombones and saxophones and viols and cornets and piccolos…”(3.41-42) Gatsby’s parties are unbelievably luxurious in preparation for Daisy’s appearance.
My Friends that were promoting the party had the crowd so live and turnt up before he came in cameras was rolling I got everything every moment. He came in at 2:30 the club security was trying to pat everyone down before they came in the door but he had a fake police officer with him he had a old badge for LRPD from five years ago so pretty much everyone who came in the back door with the rapper got in with anything and everything the night was still going
This shows how desperate Gatsby is to get the fortune, risking the danger of going to jail. Not to mention that he wants to be able to throw parties all the time, which costs money; Hoping that Daisy would just wander in someday. “I think he half expected her to wander into one of his parties, some night,” went on Jordan, “but she never did” (P. 84) Since that never worked, he decided to change who he was and his
For Gatsby it was his passion to keep achieving more. When he became rich he just let anyone into his home to make himself feel like his success was brought him something, but at the same time he did not talk to any of them. The truth was though, that Gatsby held parties not to share his success or even to be around people; he held them just to wait for the only thing that would make him complete: Daisy. All he did was focus on Daisy who he felt was the only person that could bring him happiness, but it led him to being very absent from others’ lives. Nick was invited to a party at Gatsby’s house and when he arrived at his house he explains, “I made an attempt to find my host but the two or three people of whom I asked his whereabouts stared at me in such an amazed away and denied so vehemently any knowledge of his movements” (Fitzgerald 46).
The day we moved it was horrible. Moving into the Elder house was different then we ever imagine. We wanted to move as quick as possible. My mom and dad were always debating on houses. The house made me want to go back to Saint Gerturde.
