The Great Gatsby Relevant Themes by Irena. How to Throw a Party Like Gatsby - English Language Arts / Lesson Planet Articles - Lesson Planet Community Forums. This summer, Baz Luhrmann’s long-anticipated adaptation of F.
Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby will be in theaters. While Baz Luhrmann can sometimes be controversial due to the liberties he takes, particularly with his anachronistic soundtracks2, his visual style seems very complementary to Fitzgerald’s use of imagery and color. While Gatsby was previously adapted in 1974, starring Robert Redford, this version promises to bring Fitzgerald’s critique of the Roaring Twenties to a contemporary generation.

Ain't we got fun? F-scott-fitzgerald-the-great-gatsby-chapter-v-annotated. When I came home to West Egg that night I was afraid for a moment that my house was on fire.
Two o’clock and the whole corner of the peninsula was blazing with light, which fell unreal on the shrubbery and made thin elongating glints upon the roadside wires. Turning a corner, I saw that it was Gatsby’s house, lit from tower to cellar. At first I thought it was another party, a wild rout that had resolved itself into “hide-and-go-seek” or “sardines-in-the-box” with all the house thrown open to the game.
But there wasn’t a sound. Only wind in the trees, which blew the wires and made the lights go off and on again as if the house had winked into the darkness. “Your place looks like the World’s Fair,” I said. “Does it?” “It’s too late.” “Well, suppose we take a plunge in the swimming-pool? “I’ve got to go to bed.” “All right.” He waited, looking at me with suppressed eagerness. “I talked with Miss Baker,” I said after a moment. “Oh, that’s all right,” he said carelessly. “Not very much.”
