The Green Light- Google Classroom Assignment

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter -- to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther . . . And one fine morning -- So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
After having read the whole story, do you think we are supposed to believe in the green light? And what might that long dash after “one fine morning” mean? What is Fitzgerald's advice to us? Explain and justify your thoughts on the Google Classroom Assignment labeled "9) The Green Light".

Dreams Deffered

Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?


Does it dry up

like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore—

And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat?

Or crust and sugar over—

like a syrupy sweet?


Maybe it just sags

like a heavy load.


Or does it explode?
