What to compare Gatsby with? A Level Eng Lit courseworkWatch
on the theme of social class, what would be a good novel to compare with The Great Gatsby? Ideally this would be something with a decent amount of critical reading but not a classic novel (meaning Jane Austen etc) because I've attempted to read many and find them horrendously boring...
I used Wide Sargasso Sea for my coursework and I found there was loads to write about. Namely the class disparity between Rochester and Bertha, there's also lots of critical interpretations about the text and obvious intertextual links to Bronte's Jane Eyre.
