You assignment is to read Chapters 2 and 3 and then respond here, and we talked a little bit about Chapter 1 already. In a comment to this post, please respond to one of the following options. In your answer, please be specific by referring to page numbers and providing quotations:
Option 1 - Consider the historical context of this book. What can you see of your understanding of this time in the novel so far? Social movements? Radical politics? Post-WWI America? Think about what goes beyond a superficial reading of what people wore or listened to, but you can include those details as well.
Option 2 - What ideas about the American Dream, reinvention of the self, and social class do you see emerging here? You might not be done with the novel, but you can get a good idea of at least some of the ideas Fitzgerald is dealing with here. Write a little bit about themes, making sure to incorporate how symbolism, characterization, and plot contribute to your ideas.
