Nicholas "Nick" Carraway is the main character and narrator of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 novel The Great Gatsby.

He is a young man from Minnesota who, after being educated at Yale and fighting in World War I, goes to New York City to learn the bond business. After moving to West Egg, Nick quickly befriends his next-door neighbor, the mysterious Jay Gatsby. As Daisy Buchanan’s cousin, he facilitates the rekindling of the romance between her and Gatsby.

BiographyEdit

Nick Carraway was born in 1892 in Minnesota, Middle-West of the United States, as the son of a well situated family. His grand uncle had started the family’s hardware business in 1851. He went to elementary, middle and high school in the Middle-West. After that he was sent to Yale University by his family. Nick was sent to France, when the United States entered the Great War in 1917, in order to fulfill his military service. After this time, in 1922, he decided to move to New York to learn the bond business, because the war had changed his perspective of the world. The rural narrow mindedness was not his world anymore. In West egg, a district of Long Island, he rented a small house, and became a neighbor of the mysterious Jay Gatsby.
