The Great Gatsby Summary Report
The two creative assignments I have chosen to do are the added scene and collage. The reason I chose to create an added scene into the book was because I was unhappy with the way the book concluded Daisy. As unhappy the story it is that the story ended in Gatsby’s death, I still wanted a more optimistic conclusion. I believe Daisy would’ve done more to say a last goodbye to Gatsby when he passed away than just simply run away. The ending with Daisy running away with Tom didn’t seem to flow with the overall character development of her and it seemed like she was forced to not see Gatsby. Based on the direction the book was taking between Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship, Daisy would’ve at least made an attempt to somehow meet Gatsby after the funeral at his grave. I feel my product would contribute to the character development of Daisy grieving after Gatsby’s death when she realized how much he meant to her when he was gone. It would be a moment of reflection for Daisy to regret not taking the blame for Myrtle’s accident. It seems unreasonable for Daisy to just move on from his death so quickly after the 5 years she has been thinking of him. After all the time together, it should’ve been hard for her to move on. For the assignment, I would focus on how Daisy was limited by Tom and that was her reason for not sending over anything for Gatsby. In addition, since the book takes place in Nick’s point of view, I want to conclude the story with Nick recovering from Gatsby’s death. It was seen in the book that his death took a huge mental toll on Nick’s mentality. In the book Nick said: “After Gatsby’s death the East was haunted for me like that, distorted beyond my eyes’ power of correction”(176). It would truly benefit the plot of the story if Nick was able to learn from Gatsby’s death and become a greater and stronger man.
The second assignment I selected was a collage. I want to create a collage that would accurately represent the main theme in the story on time. The story created a lot of symbolism that symbolized the time lost between Daisy and Gatsby. A famous line between the characters were on page 110 when they said: “I wouldn’t’ ask too much of her,” I [Nick] ventured. “You can’t repeat the past.”“Can’t repeat the past?” he [Gatsby] cried incredulously. “Why of course you can!”. Gatsby was a man of the past. He didn’t want to accept the future and just wants to go to the “good ‘ol days.” The concept of time was laid throughout. Whether it was with the fallen clock Gatsby dropped or the season change, the theme of time persisted. In the beginning of the book, it started in spring, representing a new beginning for Nick at the West Egg. When it became the summer time, it was hot and everyone was irritated just like the tension between everyone. Time made a really impactful role and that’s why I chose it as my theme for the collage I created.
Added Scene
Daisy was standing there in tears. She was holding a single white rose that pricked her hands without her noticing. “I’m sorry Jay” she whispered. She was sorry but she was too late. Gatsby’s time had already ran out and everyone had carried on as if nothing had happened.
