Looking Back At The Great Gatsby
To be such a short novel, I had a lot to write about The Great Gatsby.
It is my favorite novel, after all. Though I finished it about a month ago, the holiday break and giveaway and year in review posts kept me from giving it a worthy recap post.
So, like I did with Infinite Jest, I thought I’d highlight all of the posts I made about The Great Gatsby at the end of last year. Maybe you missed one and would like to take a look.
Here they be:
Next Up: The Great Gatsby: My preview of the book.
The Original Great Gatsby Ad: An ad that appeared in The Princetonian after Gatsby was released in 1925. Pretty cool.
The History of Gatsby on Film: A look at all the different movie interpretations of Gatsby. With trailers.
“F. Scott Fitzgerald died believing himself a failure.” Why do we not appreciate some authors until after they are gone?
Story Time With Andy Kaufman. A funny, awkward video of Kaufman reading from The Great Gatsby.
The “High Bouncing Lover”? A look at the weirdly worded epigraph that opens the novel.
The Jay Gatsby Guide To Being A Stalker. Creepy Jay Gatsby writes a letter to Daisy revealing his obsession with her and his stalkerish tendencies.
What The Great Gatsby Was Almost Named: Some of the titles that almost graced the cover of the book.
The Great Gatsby Covers: A Brief History. Looking through all of the cover design interpretations over the years.
The Great Gatsby In A Nutshell: A short, funny cartoon that basically sums up the entire novel.
Why Fitzgerald’s Prose Is Like Butter: Let me tell you why I love F. Scott Fitzgerald’s writing.
The Best Passages From The Great Gatsby: All of them in one post.
Wow. I didn’t realize I had written that much about this novel until I put this post together.
Has anyone been inspired to read Gatsby for the first time after seeing any of these posts?
