The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Great Gatsby is an American novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The novel describes the story of Gatsby, in pursuit for his love-lady, Daisy. The characters in the novel are confined to materialistic world. They hold little or no morality driven by the desires of heart. Ultimately all the twists and turns lead to ruins.

About the Author

Scott Fitzgerald is an American novelist and short story writer. He is regarded as one among the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. Fitzgerald has written so many short stories with themes of youth, promise, and despair. Some of his novels include This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night.

Summary :

The Great Gatsby chronicles the life of Jay Gatsby, narrated by Nick Carraway, a veteran. Gatsby dreams to pursue his love for Daisy Buchanan, whom he met five years ago. He invests his time in accumulating wealth to woo his lost love. He becomes one of the young and mysterious millionaires. All his illegal ways of possessing wealth is solely because of his obsession for the debutante Daisy.   But however, he is left to ruins because of the consequences he faces. The story also has so many sub plots intervening with the primary plot.

The story starts with Nick introduced to Jordan Baker, an attractive golfer by his cousin, Daisy and her husband, Tom. Baker reveals to him about Tom’s mistress, Myrtle Wilson, and his affairs at New York City apartment. When Nick accompanies with Tom and Myrtle to a party at the apartment, where unfortunate circumstances furies Tom, and he ends up breaking Myrtle’s nose.

Later in summer, Nick is invited for a party in Gatsby’s house. Baker introduces Nick to Gatsby, who recognizes him as ‘the Great War’ veteran. Nick learns about Gatsby’s love for Daisy and his obsession in reestablishing his relationship with her. His extravagant lifestyle parties and mansion were all a way to rekindle his lost romance for Daisy by getting her curious of their neighbor. Even though he had invited Buchanans several times for the party, he never got to meet Daisy, as Tom attends it alone.

Nick was invited for the party with an intention of arranging a reunion for Gatsby and Daisy. Later Nick arranges a tea party at home, inviting Daisy and Gatsby. The reunions establish their relationship and they start their affair. Tom, who becomes suspicious of the relationship, becomes outraged, despite his infidelity. At New York, Tom confronts both Gatsby and Daisy for their affair and mentions the illegal wealth accumulation of Gatsby.

On their way back to the valley of ashes, they find Gatsby’s car struck Tom’s mistress, Myrtle and kills her. Nick learns that the car was actually driven by Daisy, but Gatsby has taken the blame. On the other hand, Myrtle’s husband, George becomes suspicious of the yellow car that struck his wife to dead, as her affair, and hunts for it. He finally discovers the car in Gatsby’s mansion and arrives with a gun in hand. He shoots Gatsby and kills himself as well. The story ends with Nick staging a small funeral for Gatsby, leaving behind Baker and moving away from the disillusioned Eastern lifestyle.

The Great Gatsby is considered to be the magnum opus in Fitzgerald’s career. The story explores some of the themes like idealism, social upheaval, obsession, and materialism.

Time you were not allowed to use your mobile phone

IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card 349 with Model Answer:

Describe a time you were not allowed to use your mobile phone.

You should say:

  • when and where it was
  • why you were not allowed to use your phone
  • what you wanted to use your phone for

and explain how you felt about not being able to use your phone.

[You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you’re going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]

Model Answer:

Recently, I went to attend a written test for a position in a multinational company. There I was not allowed to use my mobile phone. Though it was not necessary to ban the use of mobile phone in the exam hall, the authority did not take any risk of breaching the security. The test was held in the regional branch of the company here in Alice Spring in Australia. This is a beautiful candidate task card and I am glad indeed to have this card in my share. I will describe the event below.

Some of the applicants had tried to cheat using the mobile phones during the exam. It was a shocking matter for everyone. In fact, cheating in such a level was entirely unexpected from the authority. So, to prevent such situations, the authority disallowed using or carrying phones during the written tests. Consequently, I was unable to use my phone.

I needed to perform some calculations. The math on the question paper was complex and was given to assess candidates’ mathematical ability. And without using a calculator, this was impossible to perform the math. There were some complicated equations that required a calculator. At present, all the mobile phones come with a calculator and the smartphone have some more feature with the calculator. So, I needed to use the phone to have the calculation done automatically.

I was frustrated and irritated. In fact, I was being punished for the crime of some other people. But I had nothing to do. I did the calculation manually and that took much time for me. Luckily, I was able to do complete the calculation and answering the math was a must for each of the applicants. I could have saved my time if I could use my mobile phone.

Idea generation for this Cue Card topic:

“Describe a time you were not allowed to use your mobile phone.” 

Here are some other hints for this cue card task that would be helpful for the candidates to answer this question in a different way.

1. While driving my car to my office, I was not allowed to use my mobile phone. In fact, the driving law in my state strictly forbids the driver to refrain from using mobile phones while driving a motor vehicle.

2. My intimate friend’s father died suddenly of cardiac arrests and I attended the funeral. A large sign was placed inside the church to switch off the mobile phone during the funeral. So, I had to switch the phone off for the rest of the funeral.

3. I was sent to an important workshop from my office that continued for four hours at a stretch. Using mobile phone was prohibited there, and thus I was unable to use the phone at the workshop venue.

4. I recently enjoyed a movie with my fiancé at a theatre but I could not use the mobile phone. In fact, the theatre authority wanted to reduce disturbance during the show and asked everyone either to switch off the phone or to use silent mode.

5. I work for a local restaurant as a part-time employee and my employer asked me to switch off my mobile phone at the job.

6. I attended a social welfare meeting organised by our local community and all participants were requested to turn off their mobile phone or at least enable the silent mode.

7. Recently, I went to visit a relative in the hospital and I turned off my cell phone as a large notice forbid anyone to use their mobile phone inside the hospital.
