The Great Gatsby Question

Consider: Jay Gatsby is a dreamer character on a quest. Is his pursuit heroic, or is he a morally corrupt figure?

 Choose some of the symbols, character types, their archetypes and quests from the novel. Through an Archetypal Lens explain what they represent and the significance to the major ideas of the work.

Hi! How are you thinking about approaching this question? You might want to consider defining heroism and morality in terms of actions, thoughts, beliefs, and relationships. If you've annotated or taken notes on the text, you could try reading through them to identify patterns in character behaviors and literary devices. Let me know if you have more questions!
