Love and Deception

Writing Prompt
The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby offers a variety of characters that challenge our understandings of who they are and how they see themselves in the world. Nick, our narrator, gets to drive the narrative, revealing what he wants, shaping parts as he sees fit. Jay, the hero of sorts, is a man of contradictions: sweet but criminal, devoted but delusional, magnificent but fragile. Tom and Daisy, the Buchanans of West Egg, appear to have it all, but insights into their home life reveal tensions and deceit.

In roughly 750 words, compare and contrast Jay Gatsby and one additional character from The Great Gatsby in terms of how they represent ideas of “identity,” “identification,” and “self,” alongside “infatuation,” as defined in John Armstrong’s Conditions of Love. How do infatuation and identity intersect in Fitzgerald’s masterpiece? How do the characters understand themselves through the connected frameworks of love and self?
