Amy's Slant on literature…

The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald

Posted on: 09/09/2010


Another classic and mandatory read for everyone….Couldn’t leave this one out.. Jay Gatsby idolizes wealth and luxury. At first you think he has accomplished the “american dream” only to find out he has corrupted the dream in the end. If you haven’t read this novel, I highly recommend you do. This is on every must read list there is! There are some comparisons to Fitzgerald and one of the main characters Nick Carraway, both went to Ivy League schools, both from Minnesota and both move to New York to write. I reread this one when I was older and understood the nuances and themes with greater depth. Enjoy
