TRANSCRIPT

  • Storytelling in The Great Gatsby

    Write an essay about the storytelling (narrative technique) in The Great Gatsby.

    Your essay must include:

    1. A discussion of Nick as a narrator. Is he reliable? What may be his motives for telling the story? Why do you think Fitzgerald chose a 1st person narrator instead of a 3rd person narrator? How does the narrative technique affect your reading?

    2. An analysis of the style of writing. Characterise the style in which the story is narrated. Giveexamples of Fitzgerald's use of sensory-oriented imagery (sight, taste, touch, smell, sound) in the novel. How does this affect you as a reader?
