Gatsbys father and google eyes attended Gatsbys funeral. This is significant because this showed that Gatsby never really talked to his father. Also, google eyes showed that Gatsby never reallt had any friends and he was never talking or associating with people besides Nick.

Nick, Gatsby's father, five of his servants, a postman and a man called "Owl Eyes" attended the funeral. This was significant beause many people came to his parties and liked him because of that but they did not show up at his funeral. This shows how greedy people are.

Even thought Gatsby never really had a connection with his father and it seemed like they did not really get along, he still went to the funeral. By only a few people going it expressed that Gatsby never really tried to talk anyone except for Nick, or also unless it was work related.

At the funeral, Gatsby's father attended and Owl Eyes attended. This showed that Gatsby and his father didn't talk much. It also shows that Gatsby didn't talk to many people or have any real friends.

No body attended Gatsby's funeral. It was sad and pathetic on the turn out of the prosession. Only Nick, Mr. Gatz, and the man with the googly eyes turned out at the funeral. Gatsby's servants were also there to pay their respects. Of all the parties that Gatsby had; and all the people that attended those parties, it is bad that no one showed up to pay their respect.

Owl Eyes and Gatsby's father went to Gatsby's funeral. This is important because Gtasby never really talked to his father and it showed that Gatsby did not have many true friends.

The onl people who go to Gatsby's funeral are the doctor and Gatsby's father. Gatsby didnt really keep in touch with his father and he didnt really have frineds, just buisness associates. Nick is Gatsbys only friend.

Derek Stemmler said...

The only people to attend the funeral were Nick, Owl Eyes, a few servants, and Gatsby's father - Henry C. Gatz. The importance that his father showed up was that he did not have a strong relationship with his father and were not in touch for a long time. It was nice that his father came. It also shows that besides Nick, Gatsby really doesnt have any true friends that actually care about him.

Nick, a few of his servants, Mr. Gatz, and "Owl Eye's" from the library attended the funeral. This just goes to show how few good relationships Gatsby Had. He had many materialistic relationships with many people but obviously that didn't play out very well.

Nick, Gatsby's dad and man called owl eyes went to his funeral. I agree with Alyssa that all the people enjoyed his parties but were to self absorbed to pay respect.

Olivia Fuller said...

I agree with Derek, also i believe that Mr. Gatz showing up shows that no matter what you cannot break the bond between father and son. no matter what type of bond that is.

The only people that show3ed up to Gatsby's funeral were Jay's father, Owl eyes and NIck of course. MOst people didnt not like Gatsby because they thought he thought he was better than everyone. The fact that his father showed up was very significant because Gatsby and his daddy didnt get along to well. And why everyone who went to his parties didn't attend it is shocking, and just shows how isolated Gastby made himself.

Nick, a couple servants, Mr. GAtsby, and Owl Eye's attended. Gatsby's father was there and thats awesome because he lost contact with his father for a period of time and him coming shows that a father will always care about his son!

Servants, owel eyes, Gatbs'y father attend his funeral. It is significant that his father was there because he always said his parents were dead so you would guess he did not like his dad when they actually got along very well.
