This storyboard does not have a description.
Myrtle Wilson, attracted to money and whoever comes with it. “He had on a dress suit and patent leather shoes and I couldn’t keep my eyes off of him” inferring that Myrtle is only attracted to people with money (Fitzgerald 38). She could be characterized as someone who is only worried about materials. The authors purpose is to show that Myrtle doesn’t care about others just if they have money or not.
Jordan Baker, plays a simple yet very essential role in the book “The Great Gatsby”. She “wasn’t able to endure being at a disadvantage and was incurably dishonest” leading to Jordan being characterized as being a lair (Fitzgerald 58).The authors purpose is to show that Jordan’s word can not always be trusted.
Jordan Baker is also an Ironic person; she is said to “hate careless people” but is careless and reckless herself. She infers people “will keep out of my way” and that “it takes two to make an accident” showing her carelessness and her reckless disregard for others (Fitzgerald 58). The authors purpose is also to show that Jordan doesn’t care about how her actions are affecting others.
