i can't remember if east or west egg is the new/old money. anyone?
First paragraph bro.
The valley of ashes
New York City.
The West Egg is the "less fashionable" side of Long Island where Gatsby and Nick live. The East Egg is the "fashionable" side of Long Island where the Buchanans and other "old money" people live. The Valley of Ashes is the desolate wasteland where the Wilsons live. New York City is a symbol of what America has become in the 1920's : a place where anything goes, where money is made and bootleggers flourish, and where the World Series can be fixed by a man such as Meyer Wolfsheim.
one of the books i had to read at school that i DIDNT enjoy. ah well have fun
X2, the literary world would probably survive without Gatsby
yeah, i read it a long time ago and didn't like it too much. just came up in conversation today and was curious.
