Hi, i have to write an literary essay for The Great Gatsby and the topic is "IN THE GREAT GATSBY, THE AMERICAN DREAM IS PRESENTED AS A TRAP." Can you give me some advice on how to write it and how to start it with a really nice hook? Our teacher says the hook is very important and she wants us to use sophisticated language in our essays. Can you teach me how to do it?
