The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby was published in 1922 by F. Scott Fitzgerald.Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.The Great Gatsby is the most famous novel of him,and this novel has been the basis for numerous films of the same name,spaning nearly 90 years.
Gatsby-the young man who shapes a “Platonic vision of himself’’,has a romantic dream for his lover whose name was daisy.When Gatsby was young,he lost Daisy because at that time,he was poor and he forced to the war.When he came back from the war,he did business in a illegible way,and became rich man who has a lot of money.He do everything just for Daisy,but things not always like people want,Gatsby finally died for her.In Gatsby’s funeral,there is nobody except his father and his friend Nick.The story is based on Nick’s recollection.He finally knows Gatsby,respect Gatsby and relent him.Maybe Nick still can’t understand why Gatsby choose to spend his life in such way.
I think there is also much else that we could explore in this extraordinary novel.There are ,for example,in novel,readers found the strength to dream .Because of dream,Gatsby lived on after the war，
because of dream，he worked hard to make himself richer to be able to give Daisy a happy live.Also,through Gatsby ,people find a true modern American world,they have a world where money,status and progress have become the new “savage gods”,the new “green lights”. “All the bright precious things fade so fast...and they dont come back”。Its my favorite sentence when I read this novel.This sentence shows us that only people who have strength can survive in this strait world.Maybe you have money,fame and sought
Because you are beautiful and young,but what will happen when you grow older,only connotation and true feelings would never be changed. Finally ,I want to use one sentence in novel to give
ending,”Tomorrow,we will run faster,stretch out our arms farther,and one fine morning,so we beat on”.
