hey guys, so i had already thought about the structure of my term paper. But can you just tell me some points you think are important in the book related to entertainment. thank you & so much love
Hey, so do you know good second hand litertature to the Great Gatsby? And some more questions to discuss about: What role does entertainment play in the Great Gatsby? What does Fitzgerald wanna say with his novel? What does he want to reach? Thank you so much Helena
Fitzgerald frequently uses the word (or some form of the word) 'incessantly' throughout "The Great Gatsby." I never noticed until this read-through, but why would he choose to use the word 'ceaselessly' in the very last line of the novel?
I recently read The Great Gatsby by Fitzgerald and was left a little under-whelmed and in some ways, I even disliked the characters thoroughly. The whole facade of Gatsby's and the blankness of Daisy I found very frustrating. To think that people lived like that in a world of decadence, almost with a disregard of consequences or the morality of their actions made me feel like I fundamentally could not like the characters. On reflection, I like the social commentary side of things with what Fitzgerald is saying about the superficial society of 1920s America but I still can't like the characters or their thought processes. Has anyone else felt this or indeed, felt the polar opposite? I have written a blog post on my thoughts if you want to read in a bit more depth: search for criticaldan4th wordpress and you should find it. Any reads appreciated :)
I was wondering what you think would happen if Myrtle never died, and Gatsby was never murdered? I think Scott Fitzgerald scripted Gatsby to die, because I believe Daisy most likely would have rejected him and death is a easier way out of the misery, I guess. I think that Gatsby would have committed suicide if Daisy didn't want him OR he would keep trying. Although the attempts would eventually get exhausting, he built everything for her, everything. What do you think?
What do you think it represents?
hi i really need your help i nedd an essay that summarizes the novel the great gatsby
So I recently read The Great Gatsby, and I wanted to ask a few questions. My Language Arts teacher in response to the quote " So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past (189). " said that Fitzgerald wanted the reader to follow his or her dreams, but the feeling I got was you should not follow your dreams. Gatsby followed his dreams and look where that got him in the end. What do you get from that quote? I had a sad feeling after reading the book, and ended up disliking all the characters. Another question: " No- Gatsby turned out all right at the end... (5)." I was thinking maybe Nick said that in the beginning of the book because Gatsby was finally free from his drive for Daisy and success, and Nick in the point of writing that quote was dissatisfied with the world. What do you think?
Hi ! :) Could you help me with the following questions ? : 1. Groups of characters in the book according to traits of similarities or differences. Give examples from the text which have made us establish such connections between them. 2. Which of the characters develop in the course of the story and which remain static. Give valid reasons and arguments to support our opinion. 3. To point out instances of violence and abuse. Who are the offenders, who are their victims? What are the abusers motives for resorting to aggression? What is their inner conflict and do they feel remorse? 4. To compare George and Myrtle with Daisy and Tom: moral values, conduct, dreams and desires. Support your standpoint with examples. 5. How is the family envisioned in the novel? Does it foster growth and advancement, or is it a bondage of desperation or wealth or maybe, a unit which nurtures growth and wholesomeness? Supply valid arguments for your conclusions. 6. Аnalization of the type of parties described in the book and the predominant atmosphere of each one. 7. Elaboration on the obvious and subtle reasons for Gatsby’s death. Is Gatsby’s murder justified? Define Tom and Daisy’s conduct with respect to the car accident and Gatsby’s ensuing death. 8. Nick finds a man connected to Gatsby and asks him to come and pay homage to Gatsby at the funeral. Who is this man? How is he connected to Gatsby? Why doesn’t he go to the funeral? 9. Description of the role of the owl-eyed man. How does he affect the novel even though he may be briefly mentioned? 10. Colours play a symbolic role throughout the book. How do they heighten our experience ?
My friends honestly i really didn`t like the great Gatsby at all. I mean I liked it but not as a big work. you know i am not that much knowledgeable may be that`s why. but really i didn`t see anything in this story that makes it remarkable. in my own opinion i think it is normal story like so many other stories. also when i ask my friends they think so.it is simple story that any one can write. I mean I myself didn`t see anything in the story that makes it second story of the century. what do you think? as i mentioned i am not professional or critic or anything. may be criticizers see something that cannot see. anyway what is your opinion is there any reason that it is one the best works.?
