April 6, 1928

Posted by mea1234 in Uncategorized

In this section, Jason is the narrator.  He is, out of the lot, the most straight forward with his thoughts and actions.  I do like this quality about him, however, its the only one I admire, since he is, how can I say this as nicely as possible, a jerk!!  He assumes the financial burden for the family, howver, this makes him bitter, spiteful and at times flat out mean.  He goes so far as to blackmail Caddy into making him Miss Quentin’s sole guardian, then uses that role to steal the support payments that Caddy sends for her daughter. Jasons treatment of Caddy at her fathers funeral is also shocking and it is evident that, although he economically supports the family, emotionally he is void of all connections to them and his greed and need for money and power seems to trump all else, inluding stable human to human relationships.
