a F. SCOTT FITZGERALD. The Great Gatsby é um dos grandes romances do século XX; é dele que vou deixar um excerto, no original. Espero que vos incite à leitura integral desta história apaixonante. Bom domingo!
«I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby’s house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. People were not invited — they went there. They got into automobiles wich bore them out to Long Island, and somehow they ended up at Gatsby’s door. Once there they were introduced by somebody who knew Gatsby , and after that they conduced themselves acording to the rules of behaviour associated with an amusement park. Sometimes they came and went without having met Gatsby at all, came for the party with a simplicity of heart that was its own ticket of admission.»
