I often feel morally soupier...don't you?
The Great Gatsby is my favorite piece of literature and one of my all time favorite books. Sadly, teaching one of your favorite books can be, well, disappointing. For example, here are some essay excerpts I've collected over the years...
"They are both single unlike most of the characters in relationships."
"He may seem like he fells morally soupier but he is. He also believe that Gatsby is a good guy he believes in Gatsby's moral seniority to everyone."
"Nick sees this very alarming, as she should."
"Gatsby lives in this totally extravagant house in West Egg. There was tons and tons of room filled with many expensive things."
