Analysis of one of the main characters in “The Great Gatsby”
Nick Carraway, the narrator, provides us with an honest and realistic portrait of this world. As a Midwesterner, he is not impressed with the east’s values and, therefore, does not become deluded by them. Indeed, Nick is clearly the only honest person in the novel. While one must be a little skeptical, since Nick also has his own subjective views, we can see that the narrator is preoccupied with telling us the truth.
