Great Gatsby – Chapter 1

The Great GatsbyHere’s some discussion ideas… but don’t limit yourself to these – talk about ANYTHING in Chapter 1…

  • What impression do you have of Nick, as the narrator?
  • What do you think about Fitzgerald’s description of Tom, Daisy, and Jordan? Not just their physical descriptions, but they personalities, histories, interests and mannerisms?
  • Gatsby is only mentioned in the first few chapters… but what do you think of him so far, based on the references to him?
  • What comes to mind when you read the descriptions of Nick, Gatsby, and the Buchanans’ homes?
