The Great Gatsby

Discuss and comment on the description of Gatsby´s body. What is missing in the description? (chapter 8)

This is a question taken from the Klett English Edition.

I don't know, what i should comment on the quotation.

Could anybody help me?

thanks :)

I recall the description of Gatsby's dead body rather vague compared to that of say Myrtle. This has to do with the stark contrast between a male dead body and a female dead body for Nick. I think lack of description would be the main thing missing.
