In The Great Gatsby the author F Scott Fitzgerald sort of plays around with the time of the story In the beginning of Chapter Six Nick tells the reader about Gatsbys past and how he had changed his name James Gatz--that was really or at least legally his name He had changed it at the age of seventeen 104 As Nick finds out information about Gatsby he narrates it to the reader He stops the story and goes back into the past to when Gatsby legally James Gatz was a teenager As Gatsby leans on the clock slowly it starts to fall Before it falls and breaks into pieces Gatsby catches it and sits down in boredom The clock scene represents how time is just there for them to spare If they just sit there for a minute an hour or even a day it doesnt matter to them because they dont care They dont have anything to really do that is important so they arent wasting their time If the clock broke it wouldnt make a difference to them because they have so many more clocks to use When Nick unexpectedly sees Gatsby and Daisy together they tell him how they know each other from before We havent met for many years said Daisy her voice as matter-of-fact as it could ever be 92 This was sort of a reunion for the two of them after almost five years Gatsby and Daisy were there talking and recollecting memories from their past together
