If "eagerly" means "expectantly" in the phrase "looking eagerly at me", what is its meaning, in the same chapter of The Great Gatsby?
"Jimmy sent me this picture." He took out his wallet with trembling fingers. "Look there."
It was a photograph of the house, cracked in the corners and dirty with many hands. He pointed out every detail to me eagerly. "Look there!" and then sought admiration from my eyes. He had shown it so often that I think it was more real to him now than the house itself.
