F. Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby' / Corrupting The American Dream
[ send me this essay ]
A 4 page paper that argues the importance of the theme of corruption of the American Dream in F.Scott Fitzgerald's novel. The writer suggests that the dichotomy created by the characterizations of Nick and the Wilsons in comparison with the lifestyles of Gatsby and the Buchanans is significant to the theme of corruption. Both Gatsby and the Buchanans represent social groups hoping to achieve prosperity and social acceptance. But this same goal is also their undoing and the disparity between these characters and Nick, as well as the Wilson's creates an ironic portrayal.

A Worn Path
[ send me this essay ]
5 pages in length. Discusses at length the short story "A Worn Path" by Eudora Welty. When we first meet Phoenix Jackson in "A Worn Path" we are immediately assailed with the knowledge that she is an ancient and extremely poor woman making her way through the pinewoods. With a red rag upon her head and a cane made from an umbrella, we suspect she is not a well-to-do person. Further evidence of this fact is revealed upon learning her apron is made of bleached sugar sacks. Although the story seems rather straightforward at first glance, with a little more insight we will see there is much to be revealed about Phoenix Jackson. Phoenix Jackson walks a worn path and overcomes obstacles and adversity to reach her goal. Bibliography lists 1 source.
