Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
We don't need to read The Great Gatsby to have an opinion on materialism (or gender roles, or the psychological health.
We do need to read The Great Gatsby in order to have an opinion on whether the materialism (or the gender politics, or the psychological detachment) causes the emptiness that the characters experience, or whether the materialism (or the restrictive gender roles, or the psychological imbalance) is presented as a side-effect of living a meaningless life.
And we'd need to read The Great Gastsby in order to determine whether economics, gender, or psychology (or something else) is a productive way to probe the literary work for deeper meaning.
The course asks you to present opinions about the works themselves, and to quote words from the works themselves (rather than events from your own life, or open, unanswerable questions) as supporting evidence.
