The Great Gasby Chapter 2 Summary

No votes yet

The Great Gatsby Chapter 2 Summary Nick describes the land that lies in between the Eggs and New York. He calls it a "valley of ashes," which sounds really unpleasant. Above this dead land are the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg, or rather, a billboard that features the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg. (It?s not socialite graffiti, just an advertisement for an eye doctor.) In case you are interested in colors (and in this book, we recommend it), the eyes are blue and the spectacles yellow. Anyway, the whole reason we hear about these ashes and eyes is that Nick is traveling to the city with Tom, who insists on stopping to show Nick his mistress. The mistress is the wife of an auto mechanic named George B. Wilson ? at least, that?s the name he has on the front of his repair shop.
