    The best advice I ever got about reading came from the critic and scholar Louis Menand. Back in 2005, I spent six months in Boston and, for the fun of it, sat in on a lit seminar he was teaching at Harvard. The week we were to read Gertrude Stein’s notoriously challenging Tender Buttons, one student raised her hand and asked bravely, I thought if Menand had any advice about how best to approach it. In response, he offered up the closest thing to a beatific smile I have ever seen on the face of a book critic. “With pleasure,” he replied.

    I know how I’m supposed to feel about Gatsby : In the words of the critic Jonathan Yardley, “that it is the American masterwork.” Malcolm Cowley admired its “moral permanence.” T. S. Eliot called it “the first step that American fiction has taken since Henry James.” Lionel Trilling thought Fitzgerald had achieved in it “the ideal voice of the novelist.” That’s the received Gatsby : a linguistically elegant, intellectually bold, morally acute parable of our nation.

    it really is amazingly common; the finished Gatsby become written to talk about the the weak point of the morally bankrupt (the extremely prosperous) and the philosophical divide between them and the middle-type and undesirable; the extremely prosperous (the right a million/10000ths after the inventory crash of 1929) way of existence by no ability replaced; they remained egocentric, inward searching at, do no longer something wastrels in the course of the entire melancholy even as those round them starved to demise. there become no longer something mythological about those human beings; they were very actual and their sufferings and shortage thereof were very actual. The undesirable and earlier center type were decreased to begging, bowing and scraping and having to entirely overlook their delight and abilities as a fashion to feed their households. even as an outstanding lots of the very prosperous were given richer, grew to develop into extra egocentric and unaware of the suffering round them than they ever were. i become by no ability prepared on the e book, yet its message become very sparkling.

    Look at Daisy and Myrtle. Whenever they speak they show how women are viewed and treated in the Jazz age. Daisy s outburst about being a beautiful little fool (paraphrasing) is very significant. Daisy is like a child. How does Myrtle die? What does her damaged breast represent? The destruction of her life, and her femininity. Damaged by the careless Daisy, who hurts men and women alike. Look at how many times Daisy s daughter appears in the book. How many lines does she have? Look at Jordan. Love interest for the narrator is shown cheating at golf. Compare the representation of women with that of men. Is it fair? LITERALLY look at every time a woman speaks. It isn t a long novel. The female characters are mostly bland, stupid, horrible or world weary. Repressed by men, and in competition with each other. A quick google search let me find several links that will give great detail on each of these points and more.
