    Prompt:  The only compliment Nick ever paid to Gatsby

    Now that you are finished reading the great American novel, please write about this detail from chapters 8 and/or 9 and how that one detail helps your understanding – your understanding of a character, of the plot, of the use of point of view, of the message of the book, etc.  Be explicit in your explanation of how and why it helps.  You should consider the end of the book, but by all means, use the rest of it as well!!!

    Plan your writing carefully, and also take care with your citations and their format.  Your work may be brief, perhaps only two or three paragraphs.  However, please be certain that you have something meaningful to say and that you’ve backed up your ideas with specific, relevant material from the text.
