- EXAMPLE CRITICISM OF THE NOVEL THE GREAT GATSBY:
"[The Great Gatsby] tells a cautionary tale about the debilitating effects of money and social class on American society and those who seek fulfillment within its confines...Fitzgerald's masterpiece remains a brilliant example of social history even as it uncovers cracks in the glittering surface, the poison eating its way underneath."
