Sophomore Honorable Mention
Literary Explorations II
Dr. Adam Kotlarczyk
To the men whose lives were forever altered by them, Marian Forrester and Daisy Buchanan were always just out of reach. Be it age or water that separated them from their prizes, Niel Herbert and Jay Gatsby yearned for their remarkably similar objects of fascination. They were so similar that F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author of The Great Gatsby, wrote to Willa Cather, the author of A Lost Lady, to explain the apparent plagiarism of her character. Mrs. Forrester and Daisy Buchanan resemble each other in almost every aspect of their character.
