The word tonic is very important. What are the 2 meanings?tonic- intoxicating or healing agentDiscuss the similes: "Gatsby, pale as death, with his hands plunged like weights in his coat pockets, was standing in a puddle of water glaring tragically into my eyes." Also, look at the strong diction.

People who do interesting things. Celebrated people" (90). Why does he tell Daisy this?gatsby is trying to impress daisyNick says about Gatsby, "....I think he revalued everything in his house according to the measure of response it drew from her well-loved eyes..." (91). Why is this so important?if daisy does not like it gatsby will get rid of it while if she like it gatsby will keep it even if gatsby likes itThe symbolism of the clock reappears on p. 92. ""He had been full of the idea so long, dreamed it right through to the end, waited with his teeth set, so to speak, at an inconceivable pitch of intensity. Now, in the reaction, he was running down like an overwound clock." This is also an example of foreshadowing.gatsby cant keep at this speed or will breakWhy does Daisy cry about the shirts?daisy realize she messed up if she waited she could of have money and loveWhat is so important about the quote that begins,"There must have been moments even that afternoon..." (95).For five years he created this illusion of daisy in his house. that there is no way daisy cant be what gatsby wantsWhere does this chapter fall on Freytag's pyramid?

What is the significance here?it not his destiny, what is parents have does not have enough, he destiny is to have more"...Jay Gatsby of West Egg...sprang from his Platonic conception of himself." This quote is extremely important.james gatz-> become jay gatsby, platonic conception- perfect creation , everything he does is fake, if he like how some talk he talks like that, jay gatsby- acts like in his opinion the perfect manSome critics believe that Gatsby sees himself as a deity, which explains the following quote: "He was a son of God...and he must be about His Father's business." I vehemently disagree. I don't think that Gatsby puts himself in such high esteem. What do you think? You must back up your answer with concrete proof.i dont think is a deity since he does not have confidence. if he does have confidence he would not have created jay gatsby would of just stayed as jame gatzExplain the significance of the meaning of the name Dan Cody.daniel boone- the 1st frontiersman- american dream, cody- wild bill cody the last frontiersman- american dream, dan cody is gatsby meteorWhy does Gatsby not drink?if he gets dunk if will reveal his real name is jame gatz not jay gatsby and all the lies he told will become the truthWhy did Gatsby leave St. Olaf's? Think about this one.he felt that the janitor was beneath him - so he acts like a deityIn what sense does this chapter epitomize the concept of the American Dream?it's all about Gatsby rising from where Gatsby came from. but he will never get american dream- daisyWhy does Fitz have Nick explain the reason for this chapter? Look on p. 101. Could we take this a biased language on Nick's part?gatsby is not like the other rich people, he wants us to like gatsby. even though he trying to have an affair with a married womenThe following quote is ironic. What type of irony is present? Tom says, "By God, I may be old-fashioned in my ideas, but women run around too much these days to suit me. They meet all kinds of crazy fish" (103).its irony since he is the one that runs around cheating, situational irony- we expect one thing to happen but the opposite happensThe theme of social stratus re-emerges at the party: Tom mentions that he doesn't know anyone there; Daisy says, "I liked him anyhow," about a small producer; Tom says, "I'd rather look at all these famous people in...oblivion"; Daisy says that a "girl [is] common but pretty" (104-105).they are snop daisy and tom thing that they are better than everyone elseWhy wasn't Daisy having a good time, save her time with Gatsby? How could this be an example of foreshadowing?save her time with gatsby. she does not like the people at the party. since she does not like new rich people she will not like gatsbyTom says, "A lot of these newly rich people are just big bootleggers, you know," and when Nick defends Gatsby, Tom retorts, "Well he certainly must have strained himself to get this menagerie together" (107). In terms of diction, what would I want you to uncover?strained- struggle, menagerie- a group of animal, tom means he must have struggled to get this group of animals to come so that makes gatsby fit in the with misfitsWhat does Gatsby want from Daisy? Are his expectations realistic? He says, "Can't repeat the past? ...Why of course you can!"tell tom you never loved him- this make him think he is a deity since he can fix the past
