It's so annoying! The question is about comparing these two, and I can't find anyone else that is. Thanks anyway

It's okay I get what you mean, though with the comparison of the two questions.

What exam board are you on? Just wondering.

Great Gatsby sounds like fun. Wuthering Heights sounds like I'd want to shoot myself in the face.

How can two novels be so apparently "similar" but yet whenever I am writing an essay I can't think of a single one?!

I think Gatsby and Heathcliff are quite similar, in that they are both products of the societies around them and both driven forward by love. They are also both the other.

A difference is pretty apparent in Catherine and Daisy. While they both have a social advantage, Catherine does love Heathcliff; Daisy doesn't seem to care.

I did Wuthering Heights for As and I am now doing The Great Gatsby for A2 and I can say that doing those two books together will not be hard at all because there are so many similarities in themes such as, class, crossing over boundaries, obsessive love, idealised love, male dominance, role of women,internal and external forces, violence/crime, outsider, houses, ambiguous past for both Gatsby and Heathcliff.

Yes, but our teacher only went through the book with us and said we need to compare them on our own. Does anyone have any resources they can share?
