The Emergance from a Storm

 At the beginning of this chapter, Gatsby’s previous life is revealed. We find out that Jay Gatsby was previously James Gatz and that he inherited his money from a man named Dan Cody. Gatsby first met Cody when he rowed out to his yacht to warn him of a coming storm. This storm represents a great change coming in Gatsby’s life; he becomes a good friend of Cody’s. As a result of this, Gatsby inherits his new name, his new personality, and Cody’s money; significantly changing his life.
