Jay Gatsbys fender name was James Gatz and he was born on a marriage Dakota farm scarce went to college in St. Olaf, Minnesota. He dropped out of college and later met the sozzled Dan Cody who hired him as a personal assistant. When Dan Cody died he left Gatsby $25,000, but his mistress pr regular(a)ted Gatsby from claiming it. After that, Gatsby was determined to become rich and successful.

After the party Gatsby is worried that Daisy did not enjoy it and incision tells him to give up on Daisy, however, Gatsby refuses and instead tells Nick about he and Daisys past. The quote that best describes Jay Gatsby is, He talked a lot about the past, and I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some vagary of himself perhaps , that had gone into loving Daisy (110). The good qualities of Jay Gatsby are he is a true person and he has a good heart. The bad qualities of Gatsby are he is amoral, dishonest, and throws his money away. Fitzgerald developed this character to show how people use their wealth to get love only to discover the love is not real.

A pregnant quote in the chapter is, The truth was that Jay Gatsby of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself (98). This quote is meaningful to the story because it reveals the truth of Gatsby changing his identity. Also, it focuses on the fact that Gatsby wasnt difference to let any obstacle stop him from fu... ..., to Nick, It was a photograph of the augury cracked in the corners and dirty with many hands (172), and again by Nick, On the last nightI went over and looked at that colossal incoherent failure o f a house once more (179). This figure is important to the story because it symbolizes the emptiness of Gatsbys life and shows how his quest for Daisy was a failure. The East and West were mentioned by Nick, Even when the East excited me most, even when I was most keenly aware of it superiority to the bored, sprawling, swollen towns beyond the Ohio (176). It was mentioned again by Nick soon after, After Gatsbys destruction the East was haunted for me like that, distorted beyond my eyes world-beater of correction (176). The symbol is important to the story because they represented the different affectionate classes and how they made a barrier between the people from the East and West.
