What s in a name

What’s in a name?

Discuss the significance of each title. Which aspect of the narrative does it foreground? With this in mind, why do you think Fitzgerald chose to give the novel its title?

  • Trimalchioin West Egg

  • Under the Red, White and Blue

  • Gold-hatted Gatsby

  • The High-bouncing Lover

  • On the Road to West Egg

  • Among the Ash Heaps and Millionaires

    Looking back on all your notes, discussions and conclusions, what do you think would make a better title?


The conclusion

The Conclusion

  • We can judge the conclusion, perhaps, as beginning at “Gatsby’s house was still empty when I left.”

  • In-class rereads: 148 (ch 8) & 179 (ch 9)

  • First, assess how far it fulfills the conventional functions of the conclusion to a novel:

    • conflict resolution satisfying?

    • Characters show dynamism?

    • Denoument ties up loose ends?


The conclusion1

The Conclusion

  • How does the end of the novel highlight the importance of:

    • Storytelling

    • Cars

    • The past

    • Dreaming


Critic s corner

Critic’s Corner

  • “The Great Gatsby is too concerned with the lives of the rich to be of interest to the average reader.”

  • “The books biggest failure is the lack of a likeable central character.”

  • “The worst fault in the book is that no account is given of the emotional relations between Gatsby and Daisy from the time of their reunion to the catastrophe.”

  • “The Great Gatsby is one of the most important novels of the twentieth century, as it will have new relevance for everyone who reads it.”
