Expert Conversation: Literature and Art

WARM UP

Let’s read the dialogue. I will be Sam and you will be Alice. After reading it once, we’ll switch roles.

READ

Do you know the novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ by F. Scott Fitzgerald?
I do. Why?

Well, I have a project on literature about that book. Will you help me?
Sure. I think I have a copy of that in my room. It’s one of the greatest American literature.

I see. I’m planning on watching the movie adaption of the novel. I’m not sure if it’s going to be helpful on my project. As you know, most movie adaptations deviate from the source material.
I agree. How about we watch the movie first? I’ll point out anything that’s different from the original. Then, we can discuss and go over the requirements of your project.
