Ricketts, MarieClaire 30/09/2012 P.3 Great Gatsby Dialectical Journal Chap. 3 Date & Page Date & Page To me this quote showed the reader that people would use Gatsby. When Gatsby would throw party’s people would show up uninvited and I realized that even though Gatsby was “popular” he was only popular for the lavish parties he would throw, in my opinion. From reading this I can now predict that something is going to happen and Gatsby is going to realize everyone didn’t care about him at all. I felt while reading this quote from chapter 3 that it showed a progression in the relationship between Nick and Gatsby, and since Gatsby was so used to being used it was interesting to see some sort of bond between Gatsby and Nick.
It is curious to note that Nick recounts the names off notes he took on a timetable dated July 5, 1922, the day after Independence Day, as if to indicate these people have somehow only just arrived and are enjoying the benefits of independence that they didn't even fight for, another example of their pretentiousness. To conclude, the Jazz Age as Fitzgerald coined, shows that the wealthy love large social gatherings, getting intoxicated and gossip, without knowing who they’re gossiping, drinking and surrounded by. Some know others, but the prime example of this is the attendee’s knowledge of Gatsby – or lack of. It is usual for the audience (21st Century) to think of being invited to large parties knowing the host but not most of the guests – the very point

To which Claire replies, “That game exists.

In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and champagne and the stars.” (Chapter 3, pg 41) This is early in the book and really gives you a first impression to Mr Gatsby – to the reader it might instil the impression of him being a big spender, someone that throws money at everything. He had frequent parties in the summer that had massive crowds of important people, with alcohol in a time of prohibition and he could get away with having loud music and bright lights hours and hours. With fenders spread like wings we scattered light through half Astoria – only half, for as we twisted among the pillars of the elevated I heard the familiar ‘jug – jug – spat’ of a motorcycle, and a frantic policeman rode alongside. ‘All right, old sport,’ called Gatsby. We slowed down.
In the poem “Penelope to Ulysses”, it illustrates her as a spider saying “…each night I unweave the web of my day…About me the insistent buzz of flies drones louder every day.” (797,2-5), while the flies are the suitors. When Penelope decides to have an archery match, the suitors are allured more by the riches and kingdom that comes with marriage rather than the marriage to Penelope itself. “…you recommended this house to feast and drink in, day and night,…you found no justification for yourselves—none except your lust to marry me.”(799,
Gatsby’s Party In the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scot Fitzgerald one of the main characters Jay Gatsby throws a party in his mansion. The party is extravagant with a great deal of attendees. In the party events take place that represent Gatsby’s mysteriousness, ignorance, corruption and his relation to the moon. At the party, people have a conversation to try to figure out who exactly Gatsby is. “Somebody told me he killed a man once.”...“I don’t think so much that,” argued Lucille skeptically; “it’s more that he was a German spy during the war”(F. Scott 48).

In today’s day and age women face a lot of discrimination from men. According to Steckley, discrimination is, acts by which individuals are differentially rewarded or punished based on their membership in a social group defined by class, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and so on. (410) In Nelsen’s book he talks about a specific party scene that is designed for women and only women. This type of party is a tool party, but tools for women. It’s a place where women are allowed to go and learn about what is said by society as to be a ‘man’s thing’.
