Ad hominem remarks are often an example of fallacybecause they are irrelevant to the overall argument. However, there are cases in which ad hominem arguments are appropriate.
The Great Gatsby, by F. A rope stretched across the main gate and a policeman by it kept out the curious, but little boys soon discovered that they could enter through my yard, and there were always a few of them clustered open-mouthed about the pool.
Most of those reports were a nightmare — grotesque, circumstantial, eager, and untrue. She showed a surprising amount of character about it too — looked at the coroner with determined eyes under that corrected brow of hers, and swore that her sister had never seen Gatsby, that her sister was completely happy with her husband, that her sister had been into no mischief whatever.
She convinced herself of it, and cried into her handkerchief, as if the very suggestion was more than she could endure. And it rested there. But all this part of it seemed remote and unessential.
From the moment I telephoned news of the catastrophe to West Egg village, every surmise about Monologue jordan baker, and every practical question, was referred to me. I called up Daisy half an hour after we found him, called her instinctively and without hesitation.
But she and Tom had gone away early that afternoon, and taken baggage with them. How I could reach them? I wanted to go into the room where he lay and reassure him: The butler gave me his office address on Broadway, and I called Information, but by the time I had the number it was long after five, and no one answered the phone.
But, as they drew back the sheet and looked at Gatsby with unmoved eyes, his protest continued in my brain: But there was nothing — only the picture of Dan Cody, a token of forgotten violence, staring down from the wall.
Next morning I sent the butler to New York with a letter to Wolfsheim, which asked for information and urged him to come out on the next train. That request seemed superfluous when I wrote it. Wolfsheim arrived; no one arrived except more police and photographers and newspaper men.
This has been one of the most terrible shocks of my life to me I hardly can believe it that it is true at all. Such a mad act as that man did should make us all think. I cannot come down now as I am tied up in some very important business and cannot get mixed up in this thing now. If there is anything I can do a little later let me know in a letter by Edgar.
I hardly know where I am when I hear about a thing like this and am completely knocked down and out. Yours truly Meyer Wolfshiem and then hasty addenda beneath: Let me know about the funeral etc.
Do not know his family at all.
When the phone rang that afternoon and Long Distance said Chicago was calling I thought this would be Daisy at last. I think it was on the third day that a telegram signed Henry C. Gatz arrived from a town in Minnesota.
It said only that the sender was leaving immediately and to postpone the funeral until he came. His eyes leaked continuously with excitement, and when I took the bag and umbrella from his hands he began to pull so incessantly at his sparse gray beard that I had difficulty in getting off his coat.
He was on the point of collapse, so I took him into the music room and made him sit down while I sent for something to eat.
I started right away. Where have they got Jimmy? Some little boys had come up on the steps and were looking into the hall; when I told them who had arrived, they went reluctantly away. After a little while Mr. Gatz opened the door and came out, his mouth ajar, his face flushed slightly, his eyes leaking isolated and unpunctual tears.
He had reached an age where death no longer has the quality of ghastly surprise, and when he looked around him now for the first time and saw the height and splendor of the hall and the great rooms opening out from it into other rooms, his grief began to be mixed with an awed pride.Return to Transcripts main page.
