All right, here’s how I’m going to start out on this blog. Every post will be about a single page of The Great Gatsby, and will discuss my favorite phrase or sentence on that page, as little as two words but not longer than an entire sentence. If the page is especially chock full o’ goodness, I may discuss alternatives, but I’ll still pick a favorite.
I’ll be working from the paperback First Collier Books Edition, 1992. The text of the novel runs from page 5 to 189.
