The Great Gatsby - Gatsbys Death Showing 1-22 of 22

I agree with your reading. I think Gatsby is adrift, literally and figuratively, at the end of the novel. He has failed to achieve his one dream of being with Daisy, and by that point, I dont think he or we as readers could conceive of a life for him after that point. I dont see a rebirth, I see a (dead) man who has no attachments to anything left in this world.

The Great Gatsby (2013) - Myrtle's Death Scene [HQ]

Jay Gatsby

Sep 18, PM. It's not simply that he's an unreliable narrator but that the key events of the book Myrtle Wilson's hit and run, and the "murder suicide" of Gatsby and Wilson are not even witnessed firsthand by him! Nick believes that Daisy killed Myrtle Wilson because Gatsby tells him so, and in fact, Nick actually jumps to the conclusion first. Her husband owns the garage. How the devil did it happen? You see, when we left New York she was very nervous and she thought it would steady her to drive — and this woman rushed out at us just as we were passing a car coming the other way.

As the curiosity surrounding Gatsby peaks, the routine Saturday parties abruptly cease. When Gatsby comes, at Daisy's request, to invite him to lunch at her house the next day, Nick learns that Gatsby replaced the servants with "some people Wolfshiem wanted to do something for" — he feared they would leak information about he and Daisy. The day, it turns out, is unbearably hot, making all the participants in the luncheon — Daisy, Gatsby, Nick, Jordan, and Tom — even more uncomfortable than expected. While all five are at the Buchanans' house, Tom leaves the room to speak with his mistress on the phone and Daisy boldly kisses Gatsby, declaring her love for him. Later, after Daisy suggests they go to town, Tom witnesses a soft glance that passes between Daisy and Gatsby and can no longer deny the two of them are having an affair. Enraged by what he has just learned, Tom agrees they should go to the city.

  1. Though neither death can said to be glamorous; Gatsby is shot in his pool and Myrtle hit by a car, it is worth further analysing the ways in which the deaths are described.

  2. Myrtle's death scene from The Great Gatsby film. I just really enjoyed this scene (in regards to the film aspect) and was sad to find out.
