One notable, structural device in the novel is Fitzgerald's inclusion of parties or social events, large and small, in each chapter. With each party it's marred by some negativity- why do you think this happens (Fitzgerald's purpose)?

I think all of Gatsby's parties involve negative overindilgence and vulgar opulence. I think you might consider the party in chapter 3 where the crowds pretty much go crazy in an alcohol induced mob frenzy.
