Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Perhaps you read The Great Gatsby, and want a refresher. Perhaps you read the novel, and require more clarification. Perhaps you didn’t read it, and the test is tomorrow. Whatever your need, this guide is for you. It tells the story that the novel tells, but in one-quarter of the words and in contemporary language. Interspersed within this telling are in-line commentary and notes that provide historical context and cultural context, highlight important quotes, and identify motifs and examples of themes. This guide differs from others by presenting themes, quotes, symbols, motifs, and characters in the context of the story. Other guides present such information out of context, which can be confusing. A quote or motif without proper context can be difficult to remember and understand. Context is everything! Note: This guide cites The Great Gatsby twenty-six times.
