Homework Help: Literature

Posted by Carol on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 12:38pm.

Hi, I'm currently reading 'The Great Gatsby' and was wondering if someone could help me understand this passage:

"My commutation ticket came back to me with a dark stain from his hand. That anyone should care in this heat whose flush lips he kissed, whose head made damp the pyjama pocket over his heart!"

This is at the part where Nick is taking the train to Daisy and Tom's house before Daisy tells Gatsby she loves him in front of Tom. I'm just very confused. Where does this come from? Nick had just been "accused" of stealing a woman's pocket-book.

Thanks in advance.
