The Odd Life of James Gatz

By: Kyle Schemmel

Bio Poem


Rich, Loving, Mysterious, Bullheaded

Son of Henry Gatz

Lover of Daisy, Friends, and money

Who feels that everyone should be him. That Daisy should just marry him. That he has a great life.

Who needs Daisy's love, friends who care about him, and company to make him feel well

Who gives money to those who want it, care to those who ask for it, love to those who need it

Who fears of drinking, losing Daisy, and losing money

Who would like to see Daisy Buchanan love him, the world do right, and him get richer

Resident of West Egg, New York



"He wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was." Chapter 6 Bottom of page 111

The Explanation

The reason why I picked this quote above all others is the fact that it describes how Gatsby feels about Daisy. How he wants things to be the way they were back when they were in Louisville. This explains Gatsby the most because, this shows that Gatsby has never stopped loving her. Another reason why I think that this is a very important quote is for the basic fact that the whole book is basically about how he tries to win Daisy's heart back.

West Egg

This is what I imagine Gatsby's mansion looking like. How he was always the person to talk to if you wanted a party. How every Monday he would have a group of workers and servants come and repair what the party had destroyed not even 12 hours previous to the arrival. Its a very nice mansion with a huge garden.

Gatsbys money

Gatsby had a very large amount of money that he inherited. This shows what $50,000 would look like and when you take that by 3 or 4 that how much you would need to get into west egg. This just shows that Gatsby was very conservative with his money and that he can do what ever his heart desires with all this money.
