Bridgeport Great Gatsby

Cole Tussing

We can connect the points made by Fitzgerald even in today's world. For example there is a town called Bridgeport Connecticut. Bridgeport is a struggling poor subbard down Long Island, with a high sense of pollution. In the Great Gatsby, it is stated that, "ashes are growing like wheat into ridges and hills" (23). In the book it is representing it to be a struggling town as well with ashes growing bigger and bigger. In the picture describing the passage you will notice the entire background to be full of fog, and not very visible to see. Which because of the struggling town and the unhealthy ashes, is why Bridgeport makes a good connection to Fitzgerald's message.
