The Great Gatsby

Chapter 4;

1) According to Jordan, what did Daisy do on her wedding day? Why?

2) Why does Gatsby want to have tea with Daisy in Nick's house? Why doesn't Gatsby ask Nick for his favor himself?

3) What does Tom do when he and Daisy return from their honeymoon?

4) Aside from the improbability of his story, what other evidence is there that Gatsby is lying when he tells Nick about his background?

5) How does Daisy behave after Gatsby goes overseas? What does her behavior show about her feelings for Gatsby?

6) After Jordan tells Nick the story of Gatsby and Daisy, Nick says that Gatsby "came alive to me, delivered suddenly from the womb of his purposeless splendor." How does the metaphor of birth help explain what Gatsby's behavior had meant to Nick up to then?

Hi, you need to send your questions separately. These are too many at one time. I'll take your first one.According to Jordan Daisy got really drunk,cried uncontrollably, threw her expensive pearls which were a present from Tom in the trash, and almost called off her wedding. She was so despondent that they had to throw her in a bath to sober her up and force her into her dress.

She’d received a mysterious letter that made her act this way. The way Jordan has set up the story leads the reader to believe the letter is from Gatsby.
