Product Description
The color symbolism, characterization, and plot development in Chapter 2 of The Great Gatsby creates a foundation for the rest of the novel. Nick's reactions to the valley of ashes, Tom's and Myrtle's infidelity, the melancholy of George Wilson, and the ever watchful eyes of TJ Echelberg launch the theme that the American Dream is not what the reader thinks it is!

Nick escorts the reader to the valley of ashes and then to NYC. Tom drags our reluctant narrator to Wilson’s garage to meet his mistress, Myrtle. In New York, their “line of yellow windows must have contributed their share of human secrecy to the casual watcher.” Nick shares the experiences that he can recall, and the reader joins in his enchantment and repulsion of the “inexhaustible variety of life.”
