The Great Gatsby

1. This chapter completes the narrative of Gatsby’s life. Is Fitzgerald’s use of flashback more effective that chronological order? Why or why not?

I like the flashback. Until this point, Gatsby has remained an enigma. Even the reader has built up his or her own mythos around Gatsby. The flashback functions to pull the reader back to reality just before the reader gets lost in Gatsby's fantasy.
