What does my teacher mean by this?
So I'm writing an essay on the great gatsby and I told my teacher about it via emai. (I'm doing online school) and this is what he told me...
Also, make sure you develop the theme more than merely "mortality." I always tell my students that something like "mortality" is more of a topic than a theme. What about "mortality"?
what does he mean on that? How can I expand it? English teachers out there... help?
Your instructor is asking you to tell what this author's view of mortality is. Is it to be dreaded? Welcomed? Dark and sinister? etc.
