Nick Carraway as Narrator in The Great Gatsby

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.
