Classic Literature Review: F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby
By Jasmine White
The Great Gatsby is a classic book in the world of literature. Placed in the 1920 ’ s, the book has touches of the “ roaring twenties ” and the World Series of 1919 that was fixed. The Great Gatsby has multiple themes, symbols, and motifs. While the first few pages were a little confusing and hard to follow, once you get going it gets easier to read and interpret the meanings. An interesting theme that caught my attention is that things in the past should stay in the past. This is important because it shows how Gatsby is trying to stay in the past where Daisy still loved him. Besides my favorite theme, a really good scene is when Nick and Gatsby is talking at his house and that is where Gatsby tells him about his past. I rate this book a 4.5/5 because it was a little confusing in the beginning but beside that it is overall good.
