Please read Chapter 4 for Friday. Keep in mind the questions of identity that persist throughout our reading of this text: Who is Nick? Who is Gatsby?
And in case you didn’t get the paper prompt in class today, here it is again. It is a three part prompt.
1. What is greatness? How do you define greatness?
2. Is Gatsby great? Why or why not? Explain.
3. Is the title of the book a fitting title? Is it ironic? In jest? Literal?
Remember to not stress about this paper; it won’t be due until two weeks after we finish the whole book. Just keep these ideas in mind as you read. I only gave it to you this early to give you a head start on thinking about it.
Lastly, here is the link to the index. It is a great resource, and we’ll do some exploring of it in class.
