Kailey Fox Mr.Cavanaugh English 11 pd 7 The Great Gatsby Reading Guide Questions Chapter 1 1. At the beginning of the book, Nick Carraway describes himself as a non judgemental and fair person.

Nick describes Tom Buchanan as a very powerful football player from yale whose family was wealthy. He describes his personality as an acute limited excellence. 3. Jordan Baker is Daisy Buchanan’s best friend and a famous golfer. She’s staying in New York currently with her aunt but is spending lots of time at the Buchanan’s. Nick thought she was very beautiful, athletic and independent. 4. Gatsby is reaching out towards a green light at the end of his dock when Nick first sees him, very mysteriously. Gatsby doesn’t know Nick is watching. 5. Nick's description is contradictory because he knows what has happened, and while he tries not to be judgemental that is what he feels is completely true about Gatsby. 6. Nick feels that Tom might not be a good person, or that he feels intimidated by him because of the way Tom acts and makes his presence among people. 7.

Tom and Daisy both come from status and money, they also have a daughter together and share their current status and money. Through thick and thin they also love each other at the end of the day. 9. The way that Gatsby reaches towards the light, trembling with his palm open indicates that there is an extreme emotional significance. Chapter 2 1. Nick meets Tom’s mistress when him and Tom hop off the train when they are on their way to New York. Tom’s mistress lives at a garage in the valley of ashes with her husband.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
