  1. I have an essay due soon. I basically have to write about Tom from the Great Gatsby. What do i need to know about him? Give me as much information as possible, and your thoughts on him. What is his role? Purpose? Maybe a bit of context (his past)? All help is appreciated.
  2. Research Question: How do the authors of "Of mice and men" and "The Great Gatsby" explore the pursuit of the American Dream during different time periods? Hi, can you please advise me if my research question is either too broad for an English EE, and if it is how should I adjust it to make it more suitable? Also, I have already done a brief plan, which is to compare the similarities and differences in how the theme 'American Dream (AD)' is explored in the books during the Great Depression and the Roaring 20s, for instance in 'Of mice and men' the author explores the AD using different characters to represent unattainability of the AD; however, I am struggling on which aspects of the American Dream I should discuss about as well as the depth of exploration or analysis is needed. So at what depth should my analysis on the American Dream be? And how should I try to implement the different time periods within my analysis? Can anyone please help me as soon as possible, thank youuu!
  3. Hi guys, I'm in my 1st year of the DP and we're going to be doing our IOP in January - so far we've done 'The Great Gatsby', 'De:TALES' and 'In Praise of Shadows'. Right now, I'm thinking of doing a presentation on how Tanizaki (author of 'In Praise of Shadows') portrayed the Japanese way of life similar to that of the way of life which is recommended in Heidegger's 'Sein und Zeit'*. I was also thinking of doing a presentation on the difference of the perception of beauty in 'The Great Gatsby' and 'In Praise of Shadows'. I'd really appreciate some help! I'm indecisive as hell and my English teacher isn't really helping me out... *I feel as if I would lose the literary nature of the presentation through this Thanks in advance
  4. Hello! I am very interested in F. Scott Fitzgerald and his depiction of the jazz age through his different books. I've read The Great Gatsby & This Side of Paradise. I'm beginning to read The Beautiful & The Damned. Basically, I'm trying to figure out a way to tie all three books into a question. Ideally it would be all three but I can settle for just two books tied together. I know that many say that he has depicted himself within these books & that he has a very specific way of how he perceives and describes women within his novels. Please help me by leading me into the right direction with any advice you can provide me!!
  5. I have my IOP coming up for ELA and I am still having some trouble to come up with solid ideas on what to say and how I should present it. I'm doing my IOP on "The Great Gatsby" with the topic "Discuss the potential that Daisy is the antagonist in the novel." I choose to talk about how Daisy’s character is controversial, as one may argue that her presence is detrimental to Gatsby’s life; therefore, Daisy is a catalyst for Gatsby demise. I have a few ideas for the subject, but I wanted to hear about other people's opinions on how she acts as the antagonist within the novel. Thank you
  6. In my English Lit. Class, our teacher assigned us a "baby IOP" five minutes long to help prep us for our real IOP next year. I'm doing mine on "The Great Gatsby". Since I'm a really theatrical person I wanted to do something that would involve more performance than presentation. I was thinking of doing a monologue as one of the characters from the novel and then analyzing it but I feel our time limit is much too short to allow for that. What I have chosen to do is to perform a colour poem that analyzes each use of the word "gold" in "The Great Gatsby", which was actually pretty prevalent. So, I would give a state of intent first, describing what the poem I'll be reciting next is describing and the whole point of it being in a poem (which is to provide direct emphasis on the ways "gold" had been used in the novel). Then, I would begin with my poem which will be about 3 minutes. Each line would begin with "Gold is" and it would get into what Fitzgerald meant in that quote and I'd be displaying the exact line the word "gold" has been used in the novel on a projector. Example 1: What I would say: "Gold is... a classical lavishness that entails with it beauty, success, and exuberance which is what Jordan is composed of to Nick." What would be presented on the projector: “With Jordan’s slender golden arm resting in mine, we descended the steps and sauntered about the garden.†(page 59) I was also considering doing a comparison of the uses "Yellow" and "Gold" which would follow the same aforementioned structure but the beginning would alternate between "Gold is" and "Yellow is". Example 2: (example 1) What I would say:"Yellow is... an aspirant gold, a more veneer version that revolves around coating and appearance than merit and quality. Yellow is to gold as plastic is to glass. " What would be presented:“She held my hand impersonally, as a promise that she’d take care of me in a minute, and gave ear to two girls in twin yellow dresses, who stopped at the foot of the steps†(page 58) I would love to have opinions on which one to do or if I should even bother continuing with either one of them. Suggestions and criticism are also profoundly welcome; thank you!
  7. I have to do a presentation on the Great Gatsby. It will a comparison between the movie and the book over a certain technique; in my case, it will be the parallel of Gatsby and Daisy (as a couple) and Tom and Myrtle (as a couple). I've been thinking about this and attempting to wrap my head around it and it's a bit difficult. Could I focus on one specific aspect that is similar or different between the two couples then compare how the book handles it and how the movie handles it? Any other ideas? Thanks!
  8. Hey everyone! My teacher thought it'd be a good idea to make us do a comparison essay of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Medea by Euripides, the problem is I have no idea what to write since these two "stories" have almost nothing to do with each other. Has anyone studied the play and the novel? If yes, could you give me a few ideas or examples that I could use as a comparison? Thank you for your help in advance.
  9. so i have my iop presentation the day i get back to school after break, which is still in a while, but i do want to get it out of the way as soon as possible. i've chosen to do a comparison between The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Stranger by Albert Camus. the thing is, i don't really know what i'm doing... my plan is to do something along the lines of a comparison between gatsby and meursault; their driving forces and their outlook on life - how gatsby is driven by love, while meursault couldnt be any less indiffferent to situations. i understand this is very vague, so i'm hoping that someone can give me some ideas or some tips that i could use just to get started?
