In this post, I will continue my analysis of The Great Gatsby with an analysis of its eponymous character, Jay Gatsby. We will talk about such burning questions as whether or not Gatsby was truly great, and what made him “all right” in the end. Because there is so much to discuss, this will be posted in two parts.
Disclaimer: This post will obviously contain spoilers. If you haven’t done so, read the book (it’s super short, it won’t take you long), then return and we shall discuss.
Page numbers are taken from the 2004 Scribner paperback edition.
Hello everyone! I figured I’d start out with something that a lot of people might be able to use, since it’s a book many are assigned to read in school. Additionally, it is one of my favourite books, so I have a lot to say about it.
As you probably know, The Great Gatsby was written in the 1920s. It was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third novel, and widely considered to be the greatest achievement of his career.
