4. Theme and Significance:
In the final chapter of The Great Gatsby, Gatsby is murdered. A few chapters earlier, Myrtle was murdered, but not by Gatsby. Myrtle's husband strongly believed that Gatsby was the person who hit and run Myrtle, all because it was his car. So for his revenge he went after Gatsby. He shot Gatsby and killed him instantly, but then shot himself afterwards. Nick planned Gatsby's entire funeral and learned that nobody cared about Gatsby the way he thought they did. He realized that people were using Gatsby for his luxurious parties, and at his parties all they did was gossip about him. Nick realized that the only friend Gatsby had, was him and himself. Daisy did not even care about Gatsby the way Nick thought she did because she did not even show up to Gatsby's funural, and she did not even show the slightest bit of mourn even by sending a letter or making a phone call. Nick realizes that moving to New York wasn't the best idea because from the day he moved there to the day he moved away from there, life was extremely eventful for him. So, Nick moves away back to the midwest, probably never forgetting the experience he had in New York.
