The Great Gatsby Chapter 6

"Gatsby's notoriety, spread about by the hundreds who had accepted his hospitality and so become authorities upon his past"(Page 97). That is kinda like Fitzgerald life. "A few days later he took him to Duluth and bought him a blue coat, six pairs of whit duck trousers and a yachting cap"(Page 100). That is interesting that the colors are represented in that way. "But I felt an unpleasantness in the air, a pervading harshness that hadn't been before."(Page 104). I find that interesting because he is very observant. "Daisy and Gatsby danced"(Page 105). That seems like Fitzgerald. "Sometimes a shadow moved against a dressing room blind above, gave way to another shadow, an indefinite procession of shadows, that rouged and powdered in an invisible glass." (Page 107). The shadows are getting less and more visible because they are figuring stuff out. "He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: I never loved you."(Page 109). So Gatsby is trying to impress Daisy. "At his lips' touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete. (Page 111). That is so interesting that Gatsby did impress Daisy that he came back.
