Story of the West

GATSBY-ULIFHV

What does Nick mean when he says this was a “story of the west, after all?”

A

The story of Gatsby’s great rise and fall is similar to the stories of young men who went west in search of success and fortunes.

B

All of the main characters, Gatsby, Nick, Daisy and Tom, were Westerners who, ultimately could not adapt to the East and could not stay there.

C

If Gatsby had fled to the West, as Nick had suggested after the accident, he would still be alive.

D

The only people who attended Gatsby’s funeral had come from the West.

E

The scene in Gatsby’s house reminded Nick of school vacations, at his home in the Midwest.
