F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is more than a story about one man’s rise to wealth. It is also a tender yet raw love story about those who “have” and those who do not. What “have” is being referred to? Love. Power. Money. Respect. Reputation. When reading, one may want to consider the following questions: Can two people from different worlds ever be together? How important is reputation when considering love? What are the implications of class in the struggle for love? What happens when “old money” is no longer the only money and how will “old money” react? These questions to consider will enhance your understanding of the book. They will also provide interesting essay questions for you to write about. Enjoy your read.
