Let's get critical, critical!
After reading and considering F. Scott Fitzgerald's new ‘The Superb Gatsby' I have found that while a cursory perspective of this text may seem to highlight the glorious lives of those richest and most highly effective, a more complete approach to this kind of text is required to delve beyond the surface themes of thwarted love between a man and a woman, and into the more deeply set styles such as meaning demise.
