Maddie Reingold Lit. Comp 3 Ms. Falcone 16 March 2013 An Unfinished Thought The final section of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald uses a cautious tone, returning images, and specific sentence structure to bring together the essential themes of the novel. Through the use of these methods, Fitzgerald underscores something of higher significance, that the American Dream is a false and unachievable one, as dreams are naturally unattainable. Nick believes, due to his optimistic demeanor, that one fine morning everything will fall into its proper place, but, due to his extensive amount of time spent with Gatsby, he chooses not to finish his thought as he has come to realize that dreams are indeed centered around the hopefulness of

The genre of “The Graduate” is clearly related to the idea of coming of age, in that Ben is still trying to sift through the confusion of a
