I hope to gain more knowledge and insight about great literary works and learn how to analyze the deeper meaning behind just the text. I hope to assist the class in literary analyses and be able to contribute to class discussions and work by utilizing my full potential. I hope to be able to give my input and opinions and build off of others as well to create a class atmosphere that is enjoyable and energetic whether we are working together online or in the classroom.
Even though The Great Gatsby was published 10 years later than 1915, which is our classes maximum time span, it’s a piece of American literature that I personally love and will always stick with me. My favorite quote is from a passage in the book which just speaks volumes to me and really pinpoints so much of human character.
