january 27

Remember music as literature?  Instead of listening to a tune today while you write in your journal, think of a song that comes to mind when you reflect on the characters and the landscape in The Great Gatsby.  Why this song?  The sound/melody/beat?  The lyrics?  The memories you associate with it?  Please describe and explain.

1. Journal
2. Chapter 2 in small bites

HW: Please post your notes (title: GATSBY CHAPTER 2 NOTES)


  1. FuckBoy song by Adam Ray on Youtube

  2. Death of a Bachelor by Panic! At The Disco. I picked this song because in the first chapter Daisy was telling Nick how she'd try to hook him up with Miss Baker. So in a way he's saying goodbye to his bachelor life. Yet Tom who isn't a bachelor is acting like he is by being with other women.

  3. Nancy With The Laughing Face by Frank Sinatra; it makes me think of Tom and the way he probably feels about his mistress.

  4. Fly me to the Moon - Frank Sinatra
    I always think of jazz when it comes to this time period.

  5. Expressing my angry thoughts on my notes about Chapter 2 made me feel better(:
