This storyboard does not have a description.
The story takes place in the roaring twenties in New York. The setting changes between the West Egg and East egg, and New York City.
The rising action is all of the parties that Gatsby throws in order to get Daisy's attention; his attempts were futile. This is a motif because it's mentioned several times in the novel, and it relates to the theme of love between Daisy and Gatsby. The main characters in this story, going from left to right, are Jordan, Nick, Gatsby, Tom, and Daisy.
The Climax of the book is when Daisy runs over Myrtle. Myrtle dies and Mr. Wilson is really torn up about it. This sets up the falling action.
This scene depicts Gatsby dead in his pool. Wilson was told by Tom Buchanan that Gatsby was the one who killed Myrtle, so Wilson took matter into his own hands and murdered Gatsby.
The resolution is when Nick, who's sitting on the couch, speaks with Gatsby's father and tries to get people to come to Gatsby's funeral. At this point, Nick realizes that although many people showed up to his parties, not many people showed up to his funeral; he didn't have any real friends besides Nick.
This quote refers to Gatsby's efforts to change the past and man's resilience. Gatsby tries to make up for the five years that he's been missing in Daisy's life which is futile. We all struggle against the current of life, but we all keep moving forward.
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past"
