Found Poetry Prompt: Mining The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby cover

In case you’ve been hiding in a literary bunker, here’s the news: Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby hits theaters this weekend. Why not take this opportunity to write a found poem using F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel as source text?

Try creating an erasure poem by blacking out one page and leaving behind only the words in your poem (examples), or simply mine sections of text for language that stands out to you.

Please do share your poems in the comments section!
