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.
This is a literary analysis blog, which isn’t quite the same as a book review blog. And yet, I was about to write a book review, because I needed to have my say. And it still wound up being kind of an analysis, because that’s just what I do.
Disclaimer: Obviously, this will contain some spoilers. (But not really, if you’re familiar with Les Miserables). If you’re worried, skip down to the last heading.
