    In many ways, The Great Gatsby is about secrets—our true selves versus the self we present to others (ring any Transcendentalism bells anyone?).  And irony is often used when the reader knows more than the other characters.  Often in this novel, we (as filtered through the perspective of Nick Carraway) know more about the big picture than other characters.  We have that “fly on the wall” perspective of a voyeur.

    At the end of Chapter 7, After Jay and Daisy return to East Egg, Gatsby waits outside her house, calling to Nick as he passes. He makes a strikingly odd figure with his pink suit glowing luminously in the moonlight. When Nick inquires as to what he's doing, Gatsby, ever the dreamer, replies he is keeping watch, in case Daisy should need his help. What escapes Gatsby, but is perfectly clear to Nick, is that his surveillance is unnecessary; there is no chance of Daisy having trouble with Tom
