Whom doesNick meet in Chapter 1?The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

In many respects, Nick ends up “meeting” a part of himself.  Nick ends up meeting the people already specified in terms of the Buchanans and Jordan Baker.  More importantly though, he begins to associate himself with this world of wealth and privilege that proves to be alluring to so many of the time period.  This world of social exclusivity and one where an individual’s value is highly determined by the size of one’s wallet and bank account is what Nick ends up “meeting” in the first chapter.  Through conversation, Nick also ends up “meeting” Gatsby, the legend surrounding him, and helps to develop a dual consciousness between what he knows of Gatsby and what will happen when he ends up meeting him later in the work.
