The Great Gatsby Chapter 2

"The eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic -- their retinas are one yard high"(Page 23). That is interesting to me because that is very descriptive and it could be what the eyes are on the cover. "But his eyes, dimmed a little by many paint less days under sun and rain, brood on over the solemn dumping ground"(Page 24). That is relating to what you can see and why he feel that way. "The only car visible was the dust-covered wreck Ford"(Page 25). I find that very dark and ashes."The man peered doubtfully into the basket, plunged in his hand and drew one up, wriggling, by the back of the neck"(Page 27). that is a very weird way to hold a dog/puppy. "The apartment was on the top floor- a small living room, a small dining- room, a small bedroom, and a bath"(Page 29). Why do they describe the apartment that way? "She lived with a girl friend at a hotel"(Page 30). Are you allowed to live in a hotel full time? "Creaking pivot through the smoky air"(Page 31). That sounds a little like the eyes. " I wouldn't think of changing the light"(Page 31). It seems like the apartment is always dark."Well they say he's a nephew or a cousin of Kaiser Wilhelm's"(Page 32). Will we learn about how she got her information form that?
