The great gatsby, English research help: The Great Gatsby also has a lot to say about identity.
The Great Gatsby also has a lot to say about identity. All of the main characters are midwesterners who have moved out East in search of something. Nick, who feels restless when he returns from the war and moves out East to learn the bond business, reflects on his life throughout the book. Gatsby moves out East to win Daisy and completely changes his identity, including his name. Choose one of the characters from the novel and, by using specific examples from the text, describe what you think is that character’s true identity? Then, write at least a paragraph about your own identity—what is your real identity?
