Topics for Presentations / speeches / essays
1. Discuss Gatsby’s character throughout the novel. What makes Gatsby “great”? Why is this title appropriate? Is he heroic or foolish? Romantic or Realist?
2. Carelessness—analyze the topic of carelessness. How is carelessness represented in the characters’ lives?
3. Gatsby’s feelings—love or obsession? How do you know? Is his dream worthwhile?
4. What aspects of the 1920s are exemplified in the novel? What role does history play in the novel? In what ways does this work represent the age in which it was written?
5. Compare and contrast Gatsby and Tom. How are they alike? How are they different? Given the extremely negative light in which Tom is portrayed throughout the novel, why might Daisy choose to remain with him instead of leaving him for Gatsby?
6. Is Tom most responsible for Gatsby's death? Daisy? Myrtle? Gatsby himself? Give reasons why or why not each character is implicated in the murders/deaths.
7. What are characters searching for, and do they find it? Why was this generation referred to as “The Lost Generation”? In what ways are these characters lost?
