The Great Gatsby

post reading

1. Does this novel have villains and heroes? Why, why not? If yes, who fits into these categories?

2. Nick is both part of the action and acting as aj objective commentator. Does this narration style work? Why, why not? Who had Nick been writing letters to back home?

3. How did Fitzgerald use weather to reflect the mood of the story?

I think that Great Gatsby has antagonists but not villains as we would find in the context of escape fiction. Generally Tom Buchanan is a very unsympathetic character. If you really want a villain, he might qualify. He is entitled, racist, self absorbed and vindictive.
