# 2019 Grappling Continued #
Maureen Corrigan's book, [b:So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures|20454072|So We Read On How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures|Maureen Corrigan|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1414350915l/20454072._SY75_.jpg|32073856], depresses me with its author's sheer passion. I want this passion for Gatsby too! Her sumptuous text boils down to:
(1) "powerhouse poetic style,"
(2) "nails who we want to be as Americans,"
(3) "say[s] something big about America and...[is] beautifully written,"
(4) "every line, every page of the work...is just about perfect,"
(5) "foregrounds class instead of race,"
(6) "Fitzgerald always wants to want."

Corrigan particularly emphasizes the greatness of the writing. Of course, this list severely reduces the scope of the book, but it seems that the more one reads the book the more one begins to succumb to its charms. (What was it Flaubert said about being more of a scholar if one stuck to just a half dozen books?)

I decided to re-read Jonathan Yardley's article on Gatsby in his collection, [b:Second Reading: Notable and Neglected Books Revisited|10119992|Second Reading Notable and Neglected Books Revisited|Jonathan Yardley|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1328000565l/10119992._SY75_.jpg|15017656]. His claims are in the same vein as Corrigan's:

"Reading it now for the seventh or eighth time, I am more convinced than ever not merely that it is Fitzgerald's masterwork but that it is the American masterwork, the finest work of fiction by any of this country's writers" (242).

So, my conclusion after this second reading is that I have at least five more readings of the novel to go before it may start to open up to me.

# 2019 Reading #
I'd like to think my reading abilities have matured in the last seven years, and, certainly, I got way more out of this than the first time I read it (upgrading rating from two to three stars). Yet I still fail to see its enormous appeal. I am reading Maureen Corrigan's hagiography of the book and its author, [b:So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures|20454072|So We Read On How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures|Maureen Corrigan|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1414350915l/20454072._SY75_.jpg|32073856], so perhaps it will open my eyes. One thing I can go ahead and say is that the last four chapters outweighed the first five by far. I will reserve all further judgments, however, until I read it through again.

# 2012 Reading #
This was the first time I read it, and I didn't get anything out of it. Gave it 2 stars. ( )
  chrisvia | Apr 30, 2021 |
Set in the Roaring Twenties era in America, this book explores the interactions that Nick Carraway has with his millionaire neighbor Jay Gatsby. While exploring the divide between new money and old money, Carraway lays witness to Gatsby's obsessive efforts to win back his old lover, Daisy Buchanan, who is married to the harrowing, "old money" millionaire Tom Buchanan. This book is recommended for high school students, as the descriptive text of the roaring twenty presents a great opportunity for these students to analyze historical motifs present in the story. ( )

I loved the writing style but not the plot. ( )
  afrozenbookparadise | Apr 22, 2021 |
Reading a couple of other reviews on here showed me how polarizing The Great Gatsby could be. On the one hand most people thought this book was fantastic and gave it 5 stars. Others gave it a lowly 1 star. I guess I'm somewhere in between.

I found the prose to be flowery and descriptive. And I enjoy that kind of writing, so in that sense I found the book to be wonderful. Fitzgerald has a way of explaining things that paints vivid imagery on the minds' easel as your eyes flow over the pages.

The plot itself I didn't find particularly special or captivating. I never found myself wondering what would happen next to any of the characters. I found the events as they unfolded strange and disjointed-- almost unbelievable how everything came to.

Some have mentioned that they fell in love with the book after their 2nd reading. Maybe that will be the case for me. Only time will tell. ( )

The Great Gatsby is a romance novel that written by American Author F.Scott Fitzgerald.This novel is talk about the New Yorker in 1900s.The Great Gatsby is a classic piece of American fiction. It is a novel full of triumph and tragedy.Nick Carraway is the narrator, or storyteller, of The Great Gatsby, but he is not the story's protagonist, or main character. Instead, Jay Gatsby is the protagonist of the novel that bears his name. Tom Buchanan is the book's antagonist, opposing Gatsby's attempts to get what he wants: Tom's wife Daisy.

The weakness of this book is they using the classic languange and a little difficult to understand.The weakness also about Gatsby affection to Daisy,He spends that money on lavish parties in the hopes that she will show up.When she finally spends time with him, for the first time in many years, he naively believes that she will leave Tom for him but,unfortunately she is not.

However,the strength of this book is the writer are using the unique title so the reader are feel sympathy and curious about it, also the characteristic about Jay Gatsby that teach the reader many lesson.

To conclude,this book is the very recommended book,especially High School students because Fitzgerald’s novel is a portal to the savage heart of the human spirit, and wonders at our enormous capacity to dream, to imagine, to hope and to persevere.

The great Gatsby is truly a romance book like no other.F.SCOTT.Switzgerald describing about the life of New Yorker in 1900s.This novel is very popular many students if high school are required by their teachers to read this book.The narrator of The Great Gatsby is a young man from Minnesota named Nick Carraway. He not only narrates the story but casts himself as the book’s author.As ive read about this book,Gatsby’s personality was nothing short of “gorgeous.”

moreover,the weakness about this book is hard to understand if u are not really pay attention on it.this novel is about a contradiction,Gatsby's idealism makes him blind.He doesn't see that Daisy can't have love and money, just money. Gatsby can't turn back time.He even doesn't see death coming toward him.

However,the strength of this book something quite different from others,it is the charm and beauty of writing,has many important meanings that should be learned early on in life.

To conclude,what i can say is don't be too obsessed just because you have so much money,money ain't last forever.but overall its a magnificent,fantastically, entertaining and enthralling story.
lisäsi Nadilla-Syawie | muokkaaThe New York Times, Nadilla Syawie (Dec 1, 2016)
 
"The Great Gatsby" is in form no more than a glorified anecdote, and not too probable at that

What gives the story distinction is something quite different from the management of the action or the handling of the characters; it is the charm and beauty of the writing.
 
I find Gatsby aesthetically overrated, psychologically vacant, and morally complacent; I think we kid ourselves about the lessons it contains. None of this would matter much to me if Gatsby were not also sacrosanct.

There is the convoluted moral logic, simultaneously Romantic and Machiavellian, by which the most epically crooked character in the book is the one we are commanded to admire. There’s the command itself: the controlling need to tell us what to think, both in and about the book. There’s the blanket embrace of that great American delusion by which wealth, poverty, and class itself stem from private virtue and vice. There’s Fitzgerald’s unthinking commitment to a gender order so archaic as to be Premodern: corrupt woman occasioning the fall of man. There is, relatedly, the travesty of his female characters—single parenthesis every one, thoughtless and thin. (Don’t talk to me about the standards of his time; the man hell-bent on being the voice of his generation was a contemporary of Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, and Virginia Woolf, not to mention the great groundswell of activists who achieved the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Yet here he is in A Short Autobiography: “Women learn best not from books or from their own dreams but from reality and from contact with first-class men.”)
 


It is an impressive accomplishment. And yet, apart from the restrained, intelligent, beautifully constructed opening pages and a few stray passages thereafter—a melancholy twilight walk in Manhattan; some billowing curtains settling into place at the closing of a drawing-room door—Gatsby as a literary creation leaves me cold. Like one of those manicured European parks patrolled on all sides by officious gendarmes, it is pleasant to look at, but you will not find any people inside.

Indeed, The Great Gatsby is less involved with human emotion than any book of comparable fame I can think of. None of its characters are likable. None of them are even dislikable, though nearly all of them are despicable. They function here only as types, walking through the pages of the book like kids in a school play who wear sashes telling the audience what they represent: OLD MONEY, THE AMERICAN DREAM, ORGANIZED CRIME.

This is a valley of ashes—a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens, where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air. Occasionally a line of gray cars crawls along an invisible track, gives out a ghastly creak and comes to rest, and immediately the ash-gray men swarm up with leaden spades and stir up an impenetrable cloud which screens their obscure operations from your sight.
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me. "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
I rented a house ... on that slender riotous island which extends itself due east of new york -- where there are, among other natural curiosities, two unusual formations of land. Twenty miles from the city a pair of enormous eggs, identical in contour and seprated only by a courtesy bay, jut out into the most domesticated body of salt water in the Western hemisphere, the great wet barnyard of Long Island Sound. They are not perfect ovals ... but their physical resembalnce must be a source of perpetual wonder to the gullsthat fly overhead.
