        The Great Gatsby Part 2 | Crash Course English Literature #105

        In which John Green continues to explore F Scott Fitzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby (video two of two). In this installment, John looks into the titular Gatsby's purported Greatness. Gatsby's single-minded pursuit of Daisy, his checkered past, and his checkered present all play a role in determining whether he was, in fact, great. Here's a hint: you don't have to be good to be great. It turns out greatness doesn't have much to do with whether you're a good person. Along the way, John explores the relentless forward march of time, the use of poetic language, and ironic titling of novels.
