The Great Gatsby

How has Nick changed?

"We were at a particularly tipsy table. That was my fault - Gatsby had been called to the phone, and I'd enjoyed these same people only two weeks before. But what had amused me then turned septic on the air now." (p.106)

This quote from chapter 6 shows that Nick has a different perspective on Gatsby's party and his guests.

Why or how has Nick's perspective on Gatsby's party and guests changed?

Initially, Nick had been caught up in the excess and larger than life lives of the filthy rich from East Egg. By chapter 6 Nick has become disillusioned to them. He finds them frivolous, vacuous, and boring. They talk about the same things and act the way they did in the last party. Nick finds the guests are really superficial and even boring.


No problem!
