Great Gatsby – Chapter 7

The Great GatsbyHere’s some discussion ideas… but don’t limit yourself to these – talk about ANYTHING in Chapter 7…

  • Was Fitzgerald being lazy basically re-writing the same opening scene at the Buchanan’s home that he used Chapter 1?
  • What do you think about Gatsby’s reaction to Daisy and Tom’s daughter?
  • What do you think about Daisy’s mothering skills?
  • Was Daisy’s comparison of Gatsby to an ‘advertisement of a man’ accurate? Was she wrong?
  • Do you like that Gatsby is being more critical of Daisy?
  • Does Daisy really understand love?
  • What’s the significance of Nick turning 30?
