The nature of the written assignment is an interview with Nick Carraway, from the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald originally published in 1925. Nick is Daisy’s cousin, Tom’s friend from college also, Gatsby’s good friend. This gave him a position that enabled him to see things from everyone’s perspectives.
I have chosen to write an interview to ask Nick about his thoughts on Gatsby’s death and if he could have prevented it. Also, to allow Nick explain how Gatsby was a victim of bad circumstances. Writing an interview allows the reader to ask questions they might have for the character hence, giving a better understanding to why things went that way in the plot for e.g. why Nick didn’t tell Tom that it wasn’t Gatsby who killed Myrtle, but Daisy.
I believe people in West Egg deserve an explanation for why Gatsby was murdered and if he was the one behind Myrtle’s death. Hence, what is best other than a radio show.
