The great gatsby chapter 9

chapter 9

"Most of the reporters were a nightmare." This shows how scary is was at gatsbys house and it's gonna show into the chapter how scary it all is. "Wilson was reduced to a man "deranged by grief"." This shows how messed up of a man he was! Wilson was not himself when he went to Gatsbys he was possessed with something. "She and Tom had gone away early that afternoon and taken baggage with them." This could be both literal baggage but also figureative bagged as daisy had baggage or killing myrtle and toms baggage would be that myrtle was his mistress. "No one arrived except more police and photographers and newspaper men." Why didn't he show up what was wrong? Was he really mad at Gatsby? Did he regret something? "After a little while Mr. Gatz opened the door and came in" this is really crazy because the whole book they don't talk about his dad and then he just shows up! Why do you think this is the case?


  1. Loved the close reading "baggage"--well done! What do you think Fitzgerald wants us to understand after finishing this book?
