My Response to Tapojit's report on The Great Gatsby


This report is HARDLY anything but a summary. What are YOUR thoughts? What time does the NOVEL try to mirror? What would be the author's attitude towards the Principal Characters?

What is JAZZ age? What is Roaring 20s - how is this time reflected in the characters and events in The Great Gatsby? What is the nature of the language? What does it reveal about the AUTHOR himself? Which other book(s) of the author would you be interested to read?

Which Economic-Psychological-Behavioral issues had been addressed by the Fitzgerald? How has this GATSBY syndrome has been represented in modern cultural iconography - through FILM, Fashion, Media? What connections do you see between the Characters and Events in GG and our OWN age? Has the NOVEL affected you in any sense?
