    The Great Gatsby: Reader Response Jewels Hinton Wishum English 11 P5 “This isn’t just an epigram--life is much more successfully looked at from a single window, after all.” (Fitzgerald 4). This Novel is like an exceptionally elongated poem. Poems are usually meant to be taken apart and analyzed because there are many ways to view it. The Great Gatsby is a fine example of this. There are many symbols and representations of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s view of the 1920’s as a whole. He demonstrates…

    Racist Quotes In Othello

    • 1134 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Racism in Othello, by William Shakespeare, plays a major role in the play, and Othello’s racist roots eventually destroy all of the main characters.
