Please respond in a reflective writing over the following prompt; I do not want to see you copying other people's ideas. Think for yourself. I expect you to have an original thesis, 3 pieces of textual evidence and you must explain the data you use. Follow the subsequent prompt:
Fitzgerald wrote a 1938 letter: "that was always my experience-a poor boy in a rich town; a poor boy in a rich boy's school; a poor boy in a rich man's club in Princeton...However, I have never been able to forgive the rich for being rich, and it has colored my entire life and works."
Just to think about: What is Fitzgerald saying here? Is he assuming that rich and poor are different?
Are they? Is it even possible to cross class boundaries and still fit in? How might Fitzgerald works be criticizing notions of class, wealth and privilege?
This is your question to answer: Where in the first two chapters do questions of class, wealth and privilege come into play? What is their effect?
