Downfall Of The American Dream in The Great Gatsby

The use of symbolism allows the reader to interpret the story, which in turn, stimulates a more personal, imaginative, and meaningful experience. Scott F. Fitzgerald&#8217;s, The Great Gatsby, became an instant classic because of the symbolism used to enhance the theme throughout the novel.

Plot Flaws in The Great Gatsby

- The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was a novel that epitomizes the time in our history known as the roaring twenties. It was a time of great extravagances and frolicsome attitudes.

The novel as a whole seems to be a very well thought out piece of literature with little or no flaws. However, if studied a bit harder several defects can be spotted. These include such things as shifts in setting, sequence manipulation, and shifting of narrators....   [tags: The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald]
