“Hating The Great Gatsby (the novel) is like spitting into the Grand Canyon. It will not be going away anytime soon, but you will be.

"Classics always have many things wrong with them, especially by contemporary standards. To enumerate defects is to miss the point—

like complaining that a painting isn’t clear & vivid to the eye because your own shadow has fallen over it.”
