Nugget #101 -- Gatsby's Failed Redemption


The quintessential “great American novel”
—The Great Gatsby—is perhaps my favorite 
failed redemption story. Jay Gatsby creates 
a set of criteria for his change and success 
as a new person, only to find how wrong 
he was, and the very things he pursued 
end up destroying him utterly.
