THE GREAT GATSBY Chapter 8: Rest in Peace, Gatsby EXCERPT FROM THE END OF CHAPTER 8: There was a faint, barely perceptible movement of the water as the fresh flow from one end urged its way toward the drain at the other. With little ripples that were hardly the shadows of waves, the laden mattress moved irregularly down the pool. A small gust of wind that scarcely corrugated the surface was enough to disturb its accidental course with its accidental burden. The touch of a cluster of leaves revolved it slowly, tracing, like the leg of transit, a thin red circle in the water. It was after we started with Gatsby toward the house that the gardener saw Wilson’s body a little way off in the grass, and the holocaust was complete. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RIP Gatsby!
