Composition 2 Rough draft Instructor: Mrs. Briese 7 April 2010 Thesis: Since F. Scott Fitzgerald shows a vast amount of symbolism and irony in The Great Gatsby , Jay Gatsby’s failures are more apparent. INTRO AND DISCUSSION OF AUTHOR DISCUSSION OF WHAT I AM GOING TO DISCUSS… Body paragraph 1: Gatsby’s failures “Here, for example, insofar as the book is Gatsby’s story it is a story of failure—the prolongation of the adolescent incapacity to distinguish between dream and reality, between the terms demanded of life and the terms offered” (Troy 1). Gatsby’s greatest failure is his inability to relinquish the past. Because Gatsby and Daisy are in a close relationship before he goes to war; Gatsby cannot forget the relationship they have prior to their break up, and continues to fight for the women he loves though he will never earn her love in return. Another failure Gatsby must endure is “…Gatsby’s rise and fall as he attempts to recapture Daisy Buchanan’s love” (Sutton 1).
