  • Climax (pt. 2)
  • One of the biggest aspects of this book, where a lot of critical moments happen, are Gatsby's parties at his huge mansion. The rising action of this book is getting introduced to Gatsby and also Nick getting closer to the buchanans and Jordan. We are also introduced to Toms Mistress, Myrtle, who is one of the last main characters in the book.
  • Falling Action
  • The climax of this story is really in two parts. Starting after Tom and Gatsby fight over Daisy's love and then Daisy killing myrtle with her car while Gatsby was riding passenger. He took the blame for Myrtles death so Daisy wouldnt be at risk. This series of events leads to the second part of the climax with Wilson and Gatsby.
  • Resolution
  • In the next part of the climax, this is where Wilson, Myrtles husband, feels the need to seek vengeance and goes after Gatsby. This is because he thinks Gatsby is the one who killed his wife and who his wife was having the affair with. So he takes his gun and goes to find Gatsby swimming. When he does, Wilson shoots Gatsby and kills him instantly. Then he shoots himself.
  • In the falling action it is after gatsby and Wilson and Myrtle are dead and "the holocaust is over" as stated in the book. Nick is trying to get people together to come to Gatsby's funeral and many are turning him away. It is a very sad time in the book and makes you think about what happens when you pass on. Will anyone join celebration of your life and come to your funeral?
  • In the end of the book Nick moves away to get away from it all. He also stops to visit Jordan and she lied about being engaged but also told him that he let her go. He walked out the door feeling dumb and half in love with her. Then the book says another great quote "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past" and ends.
