are you doing Yeats/Kavanagh as poerty? for Gatsby, you need to read the novel. I honestly haven't read it either but I feel that I understand it and have taken part in debates where I have walked all over those who had ( don't meant to seem like a d**k lol) look for chapter summaries, key quotations and explore key themes such as the American Dream and Women and also do background research. Look at Fitzgeralds own biography as some points of his life were used as inspiration when writing the great Gatsby eg Zelda and Daisy. Id say you could learn it in 3 days. poerty just learn the techniques. break it up into context, structure and form, language and imagery and tone. hope this helps and good luck!
