Gatsby revision Chapter 4

(no ShowMe analyses from this Chapter: the next one will be from Chapter 5, ‘Daisy and Gatsby meet again’ -  )
  • What are Nick’s reactions to the stories Gatsby tells him about his past? [pp 57-59, Heinemann]
  • Three useful quotations from those pages (above).
  • Significant details about Meyer Wolfsheim.
  • What is the significance of the references to the World Series fixing of 1919?
  • What do we (and Nick) learn from Jordan Baker about the origins of Daisy and Gatsby’s relationship?
  • If you had to choose one short passage (c.20 lines) as the key one in this chapter, what would it be? Why? Key quotations?
