I asked you to read up to page 80 for Monday, which is the end of Chapter 4. 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 - In the middle of this chapter, Jordan describes Gatsby. How does her description reinforce what you've been thinking about Gatsby? How is her description different from how he's been described so far and/or how you've been envisioning him up until this point? What's surprising? What isn't? Why? (These descriptions aren't necessarily literal. You might consider the impression you had of Gatsby before and you have now.)
Option 2 - 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 3 - 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.
