Storyboard Text

  • At the beginning of the book Gatsby hosts a huge party. At the party many people are talking about him and it seems that all the things hear about Gatsby are rumors and know one truly knows him. Also, I feel that many people are just using him for is money and parties.
  • When Nick and Gatsby went out for lunch, Gatsby tells us all about his life and this is the first time we hear about his love for Daisy. We see growth in Gatsby's character here because we see that he is a very social person where at the start we thought he wasn't at all.
  • We then learn that the green light Gatsby  is at the end of Daisy's dock. So whenever Gatsby looks at this light it is a way for him to try and reach out to Daisy. Gatsby's character has in this moment because we realize that at the start we thought he had it all but now we realize he is missing one thing, Daisy. 
  • Next, Nick arranges Gatsby and Daisy to have tea and this is when they ultimately reunite. Before daisy comes, Gatsby is trying to make everything look perfect and and as she is there is keeps showing her his beautiful house to impress her. This shows growth in Gatsby' because  we thought everyone was using him for parties but it seems like he is using Nick now.
  • After that, we hear how Gatsby used to be named James Gatz. He decided that he wanted to start a fresh and new life and by changing his name to Jay Gatsby, he did live differently than before. This shows that He is not perfect nor is his life.
  • Gatsby held another party and Daisy finally came. Nick states "He talked a lot about the past, and I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then..." So this is saying how Daisy symbolizes sustainability in Gatsby's life and without her he is lost.
