Themes found in The Great Gatsby that revolve around events in the story? by Holly Q: In the Great Gatsby, many people come to the parties at Gatsby's, but almost nobody attends his funeral. What theme does this represent and how does it contribute to the story as a whole?

A: The fact that many people come to Gatsby's parties and no one to his funeral relates to the theme of the death of the American dream and to the money-can't-buy-happiness theme. The American Dream is the idea that you can make anything of yourself that you want - you can come from nothing and make your own fortune and essentially create a happy ending for yourself. That clearly isn't true in Gatsby's case. He builds himself a fortune in order to be accepted by the upper-crust society that Daisy is a part of, but at the end of the day he will always be "new money" to them as compared to their established aristocracy. He never really fit in, and this is exemplified when no one attends his funeral. It also ties into the money-can't-buy-happiness theme. Gatsby earns his fortune and buys a big mansion and throws lavish parties in order to win Daisy back because he thinks that having a fortune will make him and her equals of the same class level. He also uses his money to buy himself friends - all of the people who come to his parties and swim in his pool and drink his alcohol and take advantage of him. But when Gatsby dies, the money and all that goes with it dries up, and when those "friends" have nothing left to gain, they clearly reveal themselves to have never been his friends at all. So money clearly failed to provide him with the things he wanted most - Daisy, acceptance, and friendship. His friendless funeral is essentially the culmination of the story - he spent the entire novel struggling to attain an American Dream that was really an illusion, and trying to use money to buy things that really aren't for sale, and those struggles essentially lead to his dying alone, with no one but Nick to care - his sole friend, and the only one who never cared about Gatsy's money or social status.

In the Great Gatsby, whose dishonesty do you think is the most unforgivable? by alexis Q: Alot of characters in the Great Gatsby are guilty of dishonesty. Which one do you think is the most unforgivable and severe? Yeah, it's part of my homework, but I'm not asking you to do my homework. I actually have the mental capacity to perform the task; I just wanted to input and opinion on who readers think has the most unforgivable sin because I can't single one out. Therefore, stop making a fool out of yourself and not providing a legitimate answer, especially when you have to censor out your words. If you're going to insult me, at least make it profound. The question wasn't "Can you do my homework?" Thus, don't answer, " I won't do your homework." There is a reason why I put this in Books & Authors and not in "Homework Help."

A: Nick Carraway because he is dishonest with himself. He starts the novel telling how his father tells him not to judge people. He spends the novel judging people. From Shmoop/The Great Gatsby

in The Great Gatsby where in long island does it take place? by kidwhoknowsit Q: Where in Long Island does the Great Gatsby take place? Is it south shore, north shore are any specific places in Long Island given for the location?

Comparing the great gatsby with the house of mirth? by Emily M Q: For my a-level English Coursework I want to compare the Great Gatsby with the house of mirth. I have a rough idea of similar themes ect though I need to read the house of mirth. Does anyone have ideas as to what I can base my essay on, what I compare between the two?

A: I have read only the house of mirth. If you wrote a summary of Great Gatsby maybe I could help you.

What are good examples in the book The Great Gatsby of how people arent what they always seem to be? by Q: I'm writing a paper on how characters in the great gatsby, arent what they seem to be. I need examples from the book and need to elaborate on them. I would really appreciate any help i could get

A: Gatsby - used to be James Gatz; he created his own identity Jordan - a great athlete but she cheated in a tournament Tom - classy guy, but he's a brute

How is each character in The Great Gatsby corrupt? by Q: In the Great Gatsby what character's maybe said to be corrupt? How is corruption related to the setting and to other topics such as Gatsby's Dream

A: Gatsby is rumored to be corrupt because people think he is a bootlegger, may have killed a man, and might not have gone to Oxford. It is strange how Gatsby's parties are said to be filled with strangers that are more than willing to take advantage of his parties but in the end reveal themselves to be nothing but freeloaders and far from a friend. Tom is corrupt because he maintains a picture perfect family image, yet is disgustingly corrupt. He has a mistress, Myrtle Wilson whom he shares another life with (and an apartment in New York). Additionally, he is violent and ends up breaking Myrtle's nose. Daisy is corrupt because she entertains the thought of reigniting a romance between her and Gatsby. This means that she too is unfaithful to her marriage even if her reasons for doing it may have everything to do with the fact that her husband has a mistress and she is seeking revenge. Daisy also lets people take the fall for her. She has no qualms about letting Gatsby say he was driving when Myrtle Wilson was killed. Nick is corrupt because he is a secret keeper and doesn't share the truth to anyone about what he witnesses. He could have told Daisy that Tom has another life with Myrtle but he chose not to. Myrtle is corrupt because she is cheating on her husband and has every intention of leaving him.

How can I write an eight page research paper on The Great Gatsby? by girl power Q: My final essay has to be a research paper of 1800 words over The Great Gatsby. I have read the book and sparknotes.

What led to the downfall of society in the Great Gatsby? by Eileen T Q: I'd like to know the reasons and themes the society of the Great Gatsby led to it's downfall and destruction. What went wrong to cause the deaths of Myrtle, Gatsby and Tom?

A: one of the most prominent themes of Gatsby is the corrupting influence money has on American society and indeed on the American Dream. Gatsby, who is rejected in his youth by Daisy because he is not rich like Tom, spends his adult life engaged in criminal activities--all to make enough money to win Daisy back. Gatsby's pursuit of Daisy through criminal activities is a perversion of the American dream and leads to his downfall. this has a pretty good explanation: http://ap-class-help.weebly.com/the-great-gatsby.html

How do you write a 5 paragraph essay about the great gatsby? by chris r Q: my friend asked me to answer this quistion in a 5 paragraph essay form about great gatsby, (Throughout the story, Fitzgerald distinguishes between the different social status groups in West Egg, East Egg, and the Valley of Ashes. How does he treat and value each group?) and i said its to hard to answer. Do you think you would be able to do it?

A: as long as you read the book, it's a very easy answer, intro paragraph, first body on west egg, second on east egg, third on valley of ashes, conclusion, thats five paragraphs but no I will not write it for you lol

What are some significant events which take place in The Great Gatsby? by Trix_R_not_4_kids Q: I have to write an essay about how the great gatsby is both glamourous and disgusting. I have to write a paragraph about 4 people, 4 places and 4 events. I am done writing about people/places but I can't think of events. So far, I am thinking of parties at Gatsby's house and Gatsby's death. What other events are there?

A: 1. The party @ Gatsby's house when Nick Carraway met him. 2. The meeting that Nick arranged @ his house for Daisy and Gatsby to reunite. 3. The trip into New York with Tom and his mistress and the dog. 4. The lunch in New York with Nick, Gatsby and the business partner. 5. The party @ Gatsby's when Tom and Daisy came together and Daisy went off with Gatsby. 6. The Sunday when Tom, Daisy, Gatsby, Nick and Jordan went into New York and there was the fight between Tom and Gatsby and Daisy and Gatsby leave together. 7. The accident when Tom's mistress was run over, Daisy was driving and she didn't even stop. 8. The confrontation with the husband of the mistress @ Tom and Daisy's where they let Gatsby take the blame for the woman's death. 9. The garage guy shoots Gatsby. 10. Nick meets Gatsby's father. 11. Gatsby's funeral. 12. Jordan and Nick say goodbye. 13. Nick meets Tom and Daisy casually months afterwards and Tom and Daisy seem untroubled by their role in all those horrible events - the death of the mistress, the death of Gatsby. I'd do 2.,5.,make the Sunday in New York one event from the fight to Gatsby's death and end it with 13.

What is a good part of The Great Gatsby to read to my class without any prior knowledge of the book? by Q: We have to share a 3-5 minute excerpt from a book and I chose The Great Gatsby. I haven't read it myself but am interested and was just wondering what I should read that people could write a short reaction about (other than the beginning).

A: Good thing I was stumbling by these questions. I read The Great Gatsby when I was in 11th grade, and even though i thought the book was alright but the best part was when Tim slaps Merdle in the face!!! But if you are telling it to your class i would the part when Tim buys Merdle (his mistress) a dog and brings her to thier secret apartment, and when she asks him about his wife, Daisy, he gets angry and slaps her across the face. On the other hand Daisy is interested in Gatsby, because he is her old love but she is from old money and he is from new money and she wanted to marry a man with old money. You may have to search for the parts, but the Tim/Merdle thing is in the mid begining of the book.

From the book the Great Gatsby if Tom had a memory box what would he keep in it? by Q: I have to do a memory box for 'The Great Gatsby' for my English class over a specific character. I chose to do Tom, but I suck at these types of things and can't think of anything to use that show or represent something about him. Can anyone help me with thinking of anything? And if you can think of anything can you tell me what it represents about him please?

A: Stuff to do with his college, sport, wealth, his affair with Myrtle (he bought her a dog), Daisy, his muscular physique.... Things we learn in the book that he likes or is involved with.

What scene from The Great Gatsby would you rewrite from another character's perspective? by Britt Q: What scene from The Great Gatsby would you rewrite from another character's perspective? and which character would you choose?

A: They never tell Gatsby's parties from Gatsby's perspectives. The first one when he meets Nick would be interesting - how he views and party and Nick. From Shmoop/The Great Gatsby

How did Fitzgeralds biographical information influence the great gatsby? by Q: I have to write a 3-5 page paper onthe influences of f Scott Fitzgerald's biographical and historical background influencing the great gatsby. Please help!

A: Like Gatsby, Fitzgerald was turned down when he was deeply in love. There were two women, one in 1915, one in 1917. The first was Ginevra King, a midwestern beauty from a wealthy family (like Daisy). Fitzgerald was told, in 1915, "Poor boys don't marry rich girls." He entered this remark into his ledger. He never forgot Ginevra King, just as Gatsby never forgot Daisy after she wrote him the letter breaking off their alliance. In 1937 she visited Hollywood and he saw her--and (unfortunately) got drunk in her presence. The other woman who turned him down was Zelda, in 1917. However, Zelda reversed her decision when he became a successful novelist with _This Side of Paradise._ They were married in New York (scene of the Plaza Hotel confrontation and other episodes in (Gatsby_) 3 April 1920. Fitzgerald idealized these women just as Gatsby idealizes Daisy. And like Daisy, each was less than they were as in his dream. Ginevra King was just a socialite (though charming and beautiful) and Zelda was, starting in the late 1920's, certifiably schizophrenic. Although Nick Carraway claimed to have been drunk just twice in his life (I don't believe it) he lives among the riotous drinkers on Long island, and Fitzgerald, an alcoholic, lived there too in from late 1922 to 1924, when the Fitzgeralds moved to France.

What are similarities and differences between the Great Gatsby and The Notebook? by Jen B Q: I am writing an essay on the similarities and differences between the Great Gatsby and the Notebook! I was wondering if anyone can help me with ideas.. thanks! :)

Is this a good start for my Great Gatsby theme paper? by Meghan J Q: In the classic novel, The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald illustrates that the quest for the American Dream proves to be elusive and impossible for some people to achieve. This major theme permeates throughout the novel.

What novel would you compare The Great Gatsby to? by PianoMaster95 Q: Can you think of any novels that can be compared to The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald? I'm trying to see if I can write an essay on two novels that share the same underlying theme.

What is the significance of Chapter 5 of The Great Gatsby? by Zibzab Q: What is the significance of Chapter 5 of The Great Gatsby in relations to the rest of the novel?

What significance do character names play in The Great Gatsby? by §V H§ Q: Also, specifically what ways do character names in the great gatsby play towards showing the destinies of the characters? (for example, jay gatsby changed his name from james just as he wanted to change his path in life, etc.)

A: The Great Gatsby is a novel by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald. First published on April 10, 1925, it is set in Long Island's North Shore and New York City during the summer of 1922. The novel chronicles an era that Fitzgerald himself dubbed the "Jazz Age". Following the shock and chaos of World War I, American society enjoyed unprecedented levels of prosperity during the "roaring" 1920s as the economy soared. At the same time, Prohibition, the ban on the sale and manufacture of alcohol as mandated by the Eighteenth Amendment, made millionaires out of bootleggers and led to an increase in organized crime. Although Fitzgerald, like Nick Carraway in his novel, idolized the riches and glamor of the age, he was uncomfortable with the unrestrained materialism and the lack of morality that went with it. http://www.bookrags.com/studyguide-catcherintherye/ http://www.bookrags.com/notes/citr/ http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.campusnut.com/book.cfm?article_id=747&book=66 http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.bookwolf.com/Free_Booknotes/Catcher_in_the_Rye__by_J_Salin/catcher_in_the_rye__by_j_salin.html&book=66 http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.novelguide.com/thecatcherintherye/index.html&book=66 http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.gradesaver.com/ClassicNotes/Titles/catcherrye&book=66 http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.pinkmonkey.com/booknotes/barrons/catcher.asp&book=66 http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.pinkmonkey.com/booknotes/monkeynotes/pmCatcher01.asp&book=66 http://www.freebooknotes.com/page.php?link=http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/catcher/&book=66 http://www.shvoong.com/tags/The-Catcher-in-the-Rye

Thanks! i need to address both freedom and democracy and the shadow value hypocrisy. i need to address both freedom and democracy and the shadow value hypocrisy.

A: I would say that Democracy/Freedom tie into the crucible rather than The Great Gatsby. GG seemed to be more about love and an unreachable dream. The crucible was about the witch trials and how one could destroy another (phsyically and socially) with a simple accusation.

how different is the regular great gatsby from the Matthew J. Bruccoli interpination? by Ellie Q: for my ap english class we were assigned to read the great gatsby but i bought the one without Matthew J. Bruccoli interpination in it and i was wondering if having his interpination really mattered.

A: It isn't Bruccoli's interpretation that matters--it is his insistence that Fitzgerald's text be followed exactly. The current Scribners / Simon and Schuster edition is, from a textual scholar's point of view, an abomination. It omits crucial spacing to indicate time shifts, prints "crop of catereres" for "corps" in chapter III, mixes up earlier printings with Fitzgerald's intended text and so on. It will probably do--but not for serious scholarship. Bruccoli, whom I knew, would be pleased that you care. He tried to get the powers (he had another word for them) at Simon and Schuster / Viacom to make the corrections necessary, even offering to forego his royalty on the edition for the sake of honoring a book he loved, but the publisher cared only about how cheaply the book could be produced and how many could be "moved."

What is the most important sense in The Great Gatsby? by dainishmaster Q: My English class just finished The Great Gatsby, and my teacher is making us write a poem on it. We have to figure out which sense is the most important. Then, we have to select 10 quotes from within the book that are examples of this sense. Finally, we have to arrange them in order, so as to make a poem. What sense should I use? Taste, touch, smell, hearing, or sight?

A: Sight---- this element is so recurring in the GG. LIke the eyes of doctor Eckleburg always watching people and the blindness of society to the hollow, sad life of the upperclass. the eyes to see past someone's faults and stuff (like Nick trying to figure out Gatsby)

What should I look for when doing my great gatsby research paper? by Brownie_Bby Q: I'm doing it on Moral and mortality, what should I look for specifically in the library in BOOKS? For Great Gatsby research paper.

How to conclude the great gatsby in a research paper? by hottie_dee713 Q: How to conclude the great gatsby in a research paper? i have the thesis already mentioned at the end i just need to know how to end it off my paper is over symbolism my three symbols are the green light, valley of ashes, and the eyes of tj eckleburg. I need to know how to conclude the paper?

A: I'm working in a term paper about The Great Gatsby, so, I hope that this helps you out. When you are restating your thesis in your conclusion, try not to do it the same way you wrote it on your introductory paragraph. Experienced teachers will find this annoying, and will most probably mark it off or take points off. Restate it, but in a more subtle and clear way. After you restate your thesis statement, summarize (in a sentence, at max, two) the idea around which your paper revolved. After this, summarize your meaning of the symbolism and what you thought about it. Then, simply add a last sentence that will leave the readers wanting to read more about The Great Gatsby and the symbolism used in it. Hope this helps.

In The Great Gatsby, does Nick Carraway live the same lifestyle to a point? by Icemanrussian Q: In the book Great Gatsby, Nick usually pin points the areas of corruption, arrogance, and shallowness of wealth. But anywhere in the book, does he ever "live" this lavish lifestyle like Daisy and Jay Gatsby? At least to any minimum point?

A: Hell no Nick is like a common person who is not too rich and not too poor. He is not like Gatsby or Tom, but he is not like the people in the valley of ashes, the people who failed to become wealthy.

How does the Great Gatsby reflect actors of the 1920s? by Q: I have to write an essay on film stars of the 1920s and the relation to the Great Gatsby. I don't see relation except for the partying and drinking, etc but my teacher said there are more. Plus she said she wants to know more about film star's lives in relation to great gatsby. Please help! I'm lost"/ How do Hollywood stars during the "Roaring Twenties" relate to "the Great Gatsby" ?

A: You might be able to use Marian Davies as Daisy, Thomas H Ince as Gatsby, Wm Randolph Hearst as Tom, Charlie Chaplin as Nick Carraway and Clara Bow as Jordan. There was an incident on Hearst's yacht where Ince, a writer/producer, was found murdered. People speculated that he and Ms Davies were fooling around, were caught by her lover, Hearst and Hearst killed him. You could develop symbolism, comparisons to this real life scandal and the story told in Gatsby.

How is the Great Gatsby a social commentary of the 1920s? by Q: How is the Great Gatsby a social commentary of the 1920s? how does the book show an opinion on a particular social class?

A: The Great Gatsby is an excellent book in which to study the writer's art. In this short book the reader can detect a collection of symbolic details which make the story much more than the tale which appears on the surface: the ash heap, as a symbol of the waste of American society; the green light on Daisy's dock, which means so much to Gatsby as a symbol, until he again meets Daisy, when it again becomes, for Gatsby, as for everyone else, just a light. d

great gatsby? by Mezmer Q: What is a good theme for the Great Gatsby? And can someone give me a good "attention grabbing" sentence, like "the great gatsby is a story of love and .....

A: if you notice in the book everyone who loves ends up dead. However, the people that they loved, for the most part, carry on with their lives, with the exception of Mr. Wilson Gatsby loved Daisy, he was killed Mr Wilson loved Myrtle, he killed himself Myrtle loved Tom, she was hit by a car Tom didn't really seem capable of loving anyone and he lived Daisy didn't know who she loved and she died Also another thing to notice is those that loved so deeply were also the poor ones. Gatsby liked to give the illusion that he had a lot of money but really he was just a gambler and a bootlegger. So if you could some how time in love and money into the same attention grabbing sentence then I think you'll have it. How about: The Great Gatsby is a story of love, money and those who live to have both but die having neither.
