Abiola Bombata Comment by Amanda Bessette: language: proofread and edit to take out unnecessary wordiness especially in your intro and conclusion. Smooth out any awkward phrasing.
MLA: fix title punctuation, citations, spacing, works cited.
thesis needs to make a more specific argument in response to the prompt.
Primary source – quotes need to be selected more thoughtfully and embedded more smoothly. When you analyze, you must always answer the question “how do you know?” any time you make a statement about the book.
You need to make more consistent use of your secondary source. This should be propping up your analysis.

Nick Carraway: Character Portrayal and Progression
The Great Gatsby is narrated from the perspective of one, Nick Carraway, a character who participates and narrates simultaneously. Nick seems to be the only character who actually changes as the narrative progresses. In the beginning, Nick appears to play a rather secondary role, but gradually he comes to light, turning out to be a critical medium for the narrative’s essence. In the great gatsby, Nick is portrayed as a character who seemingly has noble intentions, who is not consumed by material wealth and who earns the trust of everyone around him, including Gatsby’s; who else can we trust to give an honest account of the events that occurred? It considers how he changed from just seeking an escape from home and amassing his own fortune to finding and losing a friend in Gatsby and how his attitude towards wealth changed with his time around the wealthy, perhaps a character whose reliability Fitzgerald believes the audience will have faith in. Fitzgerald uses the portrayal of Nick to express his view on wealth and how it can corrupt, and how we can show restraint, like Nick does.
Nick Carraway partly represents the regular man, while also being immensely complex. He was brought up in the Midwest and seems to come from a well-off background as deduced from his description of how his relative “sent a substitute” in his stead during the civil war and took that opportunity to initiate the family business. The text, “Whenever you feel criticizing anyone …, just remember that all the people in the world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” (F. Scott Fitzgerald, p. 3) describes Nick’s father explaining their privileged background.
Nick moves to the East pursuing his aspirations of financial success and breaking free from the monotony he believes pervades the Midwest, “…by extension, America’s main goal, which is to achieve more, rather than be satisfied with what they have,” (F. Scott Fitzgerald, p. 24). Nick is a learned individual whose aspirations seem to surpass what the Midwest could offer. He stands out because he seeks more from life but does not let his indulgences consume him, “… but I felt Tom would drift on forever seeking…” (F. Scott Fitzgerald p. 8). He surrounds himself with the top tier of society Gatsby, Tom, Dais
