Satisfactory Essays

The geography behind Gatsby and the backdrop of it makes Gatsby more able to understand what is happening in the story. There are two sides of the lake, The East egg and the West egg. The East egg is where the people that had money passed down from generation to generation and the people didn’t really do much in life to get at that point because they just had money given to them from old family members. This is where Tom and Daisy live.
The West egg is there the people that worked there butts off to get money and a nice life. This is the people that had a poor childhood or a middle class childhood would work to have a life and nice things. This is where Gatsby and Nick live.
