Popular young adult novelist John Green recently released a Crash Course series on English Literature. The most recent videos dissect the major plot lines of The Great Gatsby in a format that might be more appealing to a student struggling to understand the novel.
Parts 1 and 2 are linked to below. ***SPOILER ALERT: The videos assume you've already read the book!
And for a little piece of local history, part of the 1974 film adaptation of The Great Gatsby was filmed here in Uxbridge!
