  • Then wear the gold hat, if that will move her; If you can... 全部评论(36) 去书内

    Actually I have already read this book after college entrance exam, but only glancing through. Having reread this book after one year, I can confirm that there's a reason that it's considered one of the very best American novels. However, my reaction to the story was different than when I first read it. I recall that back then I was hoping that Daisy and Gatsby's love story would ultimately yield a happy ending. Now, I found them both to be such shallow creatures that they inspired no pity. While I considered the characters to be emotionally stunted, that dooesn't mean I was not impressed with Fitzergerald's skillful rendering. As in most forms of art, in literature it is more difficult to accurately and interestingly portray nothingness than to describe a richly endowed subject. At this more cynical age, I found Daisy to be a remarkable emotional void, and Gatsby's quest to pour all of his hopes and dreams into such a shallow cauldron only confirmed his own vapidity. One thing that hasn't changed in all these years is my amazement at Fitzgerald's ability to set a scene. His descriptive passages are truly poetic, and his command of word choice in unparalleled. All this made for a stimulating and delightful read.

  • He smiled understandingly—much more than under-standingly. It... 全部评论(2) 去书内

    This is Nick’s first close examination of Gatsby’s character and appearance. This description of Gatsby’s smile captures both the theatrical quality of Gatsby’s character and his charisma. Additionally, it encapsulates the manner in which Gatsby appears to the outside world, an image Fitzgerald slowly deconstructs as the novel progresses toward Gatsby’s death in the end(sorry I have let the end out ... ). One of the main facets of Gatsby’s persona is that he acts out a role that he defined for himself when he was seventeen years old. His smile seems to be both an important part of the role and a result of the singular combination of hope and imagination that enables him to play it so effectively. Here, Nick describes Gatsby’s rare focus—he has the ability to make anyone he smiles at feel as though he has chosen that person out of “the whole external world,” reflecting that person’s most optimistic conception of him- or herself.

    It was the first formal appearance of the Great Gatsby, after those indirect description like rumors and gossip. He was there after about one tenth length of the book. He was silent and still ,but from his leisurely movement we can still sense tiny shyness, just like an ambitious boy who dare to dream but dread of being mocked at. He turned this kind of dreams inside his heart, pursing relentlessly ,just for a life with Daisy.
