Character Analysis Of Nick Carraway In The Great Gatsby Essay

The Great Gatsby
Nick Carraway seems like a genuine nice gentleman. Nick sees Gatsby as an inspiration and a good guy, but I don’t really think Gatsby is. I feel like he is more mysterious and as if he is hiding something. As the story progresses, we meet Tom Buchanan who I am not very fond of. He is very rude, snobby, and aggressive. He acts and believes that he deserves nothing but the best. Tom also isn’t a good husband or man to Daisy. It is mentioned that Tom takes Nick to his lovers house, which is where we meet Myrtle. Neither Myrtle and Tom are happy with who they are with and have been cheating on their spouses. Tom and Daisy and Myrtle obviously don’t wanna be with their spouses so why are they together with them anyways and not…

For example, Gatsby offers to have someone cut Nicks grass and he offers Nick to join him in some business he does on the side. I felt like Gatsby was over reacting to inviting Daisy over. He was stressing himself out and telling himself that things would never be the same as they were. I thought that Gatsby was trying to show off to Daisy when he showed her all of his most valuable possessions. It seemed like the only way Gatsby could win Daisy over was showing her how rich he was. Daisy and Gatsby still have feelings for each other but dont know how their romance is going to continue because Daisy is married to Tom. Overall, I was glad that Gatsby and Daisy got a chance to reunite but I am uncertain if their love for each other will ever be the same as it was before Gatsby left for war.
Daisy and Gatsby have gotten closer. I thought that Myrtle’s death was tragic, and I suddenly felt sorry for Tom who lost so much in a short period of time. I didn’t expect it to be Daisy driving, the one who killed Myrtle. Tom bent over . When they said it was a big yellow car, I immediately knew that it was Gatsby’s car, but I didn’t think that it was Daisy that was driving it. When Gatsby said that Myrtle came at the car like she wanted to talk, she obviously thought Tom was in the car, and she was going to leave Wilson and go with Tom. Tom would still have Myrtle, if he didn’t let Daisy leave Gatsby. Poor…
