Storyboard Text

  • Wilson vs. Myrtle
  • I hate you, you worthless mechanic! I hate this life!
  • Come back here and love me!
  • Gatsby Vs. Self
  • Who am I going to be in this world? I'm losing Daisy, and I have no home to return to -- my family is an embarrassment, I can't go back to them... How do I become succesful??
  • Nick Vs. Society 
  • Daisy didn't even bother to send flowers... Nobody else cares...
  • My boy was going to do great things -- I knew it since he was born!
  • This conflict is between Myrtle and George Wilson. Despite being married, Myrtle cheats on George with Tom Buchanan, who is wealthy and powerful -- two things that Myrtle does not possess. Although George is oblivious at first, he eventually finds out towards the end of the novel and tries to lock her upstairs in their house while planning to move west, where Myrtle escapes and runs away.
  • Gatsby, similar to most men during this time, has a constant mental battle between James Gatz and Jay Gatsby -- two men he knows by heart, but only one he truly desires to be. Throughout his youth, Gatsby has known who he wanted to be and knew that it would all be for Daisy. He had confidence, but still carried with him the burden of doubt. 
  • One of the final scenes and conflicts of the book includes Gatsby's funeral, and Nick's disturbance at no one attending. Nick tried his very hardest to grab people who knew Gatsby and ask them to attend his funeral -- but despite his best efforts, no one came. Nick is disappointed and angry with society for only liking Gatsby because of his wealthy and famous parties.
