Klipspringer and Friends

GATSBY-NGD1XT

How is Gatsby’s relationship with Klipspringer representative of his relationships with most of his party guests and “friends?”

A

Klipspringer, like most of Gatsby’s guests and friends is in awe of Gatsby and would do anything for him. As a result, Gatsby takes advantage of these people for his own profit.

B

Gatsby sees Klipspringer as a role model and tries to mimic his expressions and manners to better fit in with the old-money crowd.

C

Like most of Gatsby’s “friends,” Klipspringer is an associate of Wolfsheim's and spends time with Gatsby in order to help manage their illegal business operations.

D

Klipspringer is the boarder who leeches off Gatsby, or takes advantage of his hospitality, but is not a true friend. Like others in Gatsby's life, he takes advantage of Gatsby and offers nothing in return.

E

Klipspringer, the owl-eyed man, is like most of Gatsby’s acquaintances in that he assumes Gatsby is a charlatan or fake, but takes advantage of his generosity anyway.
