Reading #1 from The Great Gatsby is Chapter 1 (pp.1-21). In a comment to this post, please select a passage from this chapter that you think is important, and write about it in the way you've been trained to when writing literary analysis. An important passage can be one that sets the tone for the way Carraway will tell the story, one that involves characterization, one that hints on who he is as a narrator, one that foreshadows major plot developments, or one that involves a number of literary devices.
We will be finishing our reading of the novel by Wednesday, June 10th. Feel free to read ahead.
