narrator. It was because, in the novel, he analyzed all of the things with
regard to accuracy of observation.
In The Great Gatsby, when Mr.Gatsby told Vick he wanted to return the
past over again with his lover- Daisy, Nike Carroway warned him to give it up,
because it was impossible. Unforturately, Mr.Gatsby was not believe it. So at
the end, Mr.Gatsby’s dream still had not came true because Daisy did not break
up with Tom and go with him. It can be seen in the last chapter on the novel,
when Gatsby was murder, Daisy went to somewhere else with her husband, and did
not go to Gatsby’s funeray.
I called up Daisy half and hour after we found him,
called her instinctively and without hersitation. But
taken baggage with them.
Therefore, Nike Carroway’s analysis was right by these clear
something at a time, he does not believe it is true. After he proves it, he
will accept the truth.
Moreover, when Nike went to Gatsby’s party, there is a drunk lady
telling everyone Gatsby killed a man before.
Somebody told me they thought he killed a man once.
It is more that he was a German spy during the war.
Nike heard it, but when Nike had a chance to have a lunch with Gatsby,
he told Nike, he was an Oxford man and show him that fought in World War One.
Then Nike knew Gatsby was not a German Spy nor a murderer.
Furthermore, at the end of the novel, when Daisy drove Gatsby’s car
and killed Mrs.Wilson in a car accident, Nike’s first though Gatsby killed
Mrs.Wilson. But after Gatsby told him all of the things at that moment, then
Nike was thinking and discuss between Gatsby and Tom’s speaking, and make his
own conclusion. Therefore, Nike was a thoughtful man and his is not afraid to
face anything around him. By these facts, he had a clear mind and reliable in
his observations, so it can make people believe Nike Carroways was a neutral
and clear mind narrator of this novel, because this can be seen in Nike’s
In the novel, Nike was also a neutral narrator too becasue he is the
narrator who described everything clearly and accurately. He was trustful
because he described everything without any personal point of view; By the way,
of his self-feeling in it. That’s why he is a character who strived for
because she loves Tom no more, it’s full of fire’s atomsphere and emotion.
Gatsby. But Daisy guessed at his intention.
” Please don’t!” she interrupted helplessly.” Please
let’s all go home. Why don’t we all go home?”
” That’s a good idea.” I got up. ” Come on, Tom.
Nobody wants a drink.”
” I want to know what Mr.Gatsby has to tell me.”
” Your wife doesn’t love you,” said Gatsby. “She’s
never loved you. She loves me.”
At that time, if Nike was not in a neutral position, he must help
Gatsby or Tom. But, he did not join in the argument between Gatsby and Tom.
He just put himself in a corner, keeping quiet and see whatelse would happened
in page 131 to page 135.
Therefore, we can see that Nike was a neutral man and a narrator who
just care on the truth observation for sure in here.
It is so clear that Nike was a trustful man, so, by his unjustice
information, and his truthful and accurate observation, the reader were sure
that he is standing on neutral position, and the person who does not follow
other people. By his Fantastic personality – does not believe everything nor
what most other people said easily, it shows that Nike can standing on neutral
position truly because of his knowledge and clever.
