Good morning! Start the day by visiting the google doc assignment listed below. There you will share your thoughts on who is ultimately responsible for Gatsby’s death.
Next, you will type a character analysis essay. This is the first of these that we have done this year, so no complaining! Here is what you are answering:
Character Analysis Assignment for The Great Gatsby
Write an essay analyzing a character from The Great Gatsby, based on one of the colors associated with that character.
Your paper should fulfill these goals:
• Explain how the color imagery helps a reader gain a deeper understanding of the chosen character.
• Provide an in-depth analysis of how the various connotations for the color apply to the character, using the character’s thoughts, words, and actions as evidence.
• Include direct quotations from the novel along with your analysis of these quotes.
• Incorporate knowledge of the cultural connotations of colors in your analysis.
Follow the conventions of standard, written English, with correct use of spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
