18016 26th February, 2017 Mrs. Stone Adv Eng III The Great Fitzgerald In the timeless novel The Great Gatsby Jay Gatsby struggles with money, women, and war. F. Scott Fitzgerald also faced similar challenges.
Continuously throughout this exquisite masterpiece of a novel, Fitzgerald prominently uses literary elements that assist in his unforgettable publishing. Throughout his writing many tones are taken note of, all of them changing rapidly and yet intertwining compatibly. Accordingly, Fitzgerald's text includes beautifully depressing aspects of drama combing with a sort of somber intelligence. Noticeably, even the blithe fragments of his writing always have an underlining sorrow to them. Imagery used paints a literary dream into the readers mind, from grand parties to the depression of the "Valley of Ashes", along with the highlights each of their dysfunctions.
For multiple reasons The Great Gatsby impacted my life. With personal issues and a previous appreciation for the theatrical version of the story, I was able to connect with the novel on a much deeper level than most. Through Gatsby’s persistence and passion, I was taught how important it is to care enough and pursue everything, even your craziest dream. Also, Jay’s tragedy revealed to me when a person should realize that maybe it is better to draw a line and move on in life even if it hurts. Overall, I am very thankful for the opportunity to read the book and learn the lessons I did.

One thing that is shared between now and the era of Fitzgerald’s novel is that individuals are often judged by the size and glamour of the house the live in, and what area the house is located in.
