The Great Gatsby Chapter Four…

Fitzgerald tries to achieve an illusion which gives the reader a sense of the type of people who come to Gatsby’s parties.The majority of guest are rich and have little or no interest in Gatsby or his life. Fitzgerald generally describes the guests as self-absorbed and only interested in the party, a quote that represents this  idea is : “the people came like moths to the flame”. Another reason why the guest list is listed is to show that Gatsby invites all these higher class people to the party so it will support Gatsby’s delusion of being one of the wealthy and important people in the New York social society of that time.
