To respond to the following essay prompt using evidence (dialogue, imagery) from both The Great Gatsby and Othello, select one of the six characters from Othello: Othello, Iago, Desdemona, Cassio, Roderigo OR Emilia, AND then your Gatsby character’s counterpart: Gatsby, Daisy, Tom, Jordan, Myrtle OR George Wilson (NOT Nick).

Note: Don’t feel like you need to go with the obvious. Villains and heroes tend to share similar attributes and gender isn’t the only driving force. Base your decision on your response to the prompt.

PROMPT: To what extent do humanity’s greatest, heroic ambitions for love, acceptance, and self-empowerment plant the seeds for our greatest tragedies—hatred, alienation, and helplessness.
