       On my own behalf, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my Blog! I will be discussing the novel The Great Gatsby by the well-known american author, F. Scott Fitzgerald. This will be a discussion board associated with important and vital themes within the literary work itself and all of it’s implications.

Overview:

  • The Roaring Twenties: Culture and Lifestyle
  • Jay Gatsby: A Look into Social Poverty
  • Daisy Buchanan: The Replacing of Emotions with Materialism
  • Tom Buchanan: Assertion of Masculinity for Self-fulfillment

        An in-depth look into these four topics can be accessed above or at: https://studend.wordpress.com/poverty-as-a-theme-in-relation-to-the-great-gatsby/. This is a blog concerned with the delivery of information about a specified theme of the novel in question, below is an except from the Introduction:

        In the novel, The Great Gatsby, the most prominent theme beyond love itself, is the idea of Poverty in the work. Poverty in more than just the materialistic and physical aspects of the word, going far beyond conventional ideas and rasping more of a social and emotional context as opposed to simply referring to wealth. For there are different types of wealth, and different types of currency to buy the products in the world; for isn’t anything that can be used to purchase be a currency in extension? If not being a note or a bill, can friendship not hold a similar value?

 

         I am extremely looking forward to the sharing and the transactions of knowledge, as well as ideas and I appreciate the participation! Thank you and enjoy!
