fitzgerald AND gatsby AND *insert selected theme keyword here*
gatsby AND criticism AND *insert selected theme keyword here*
gatsby AND *insert selected theme keyword here* NOT film
Make sure you choose Academic Journals and articles as filters to refine your search.
Finally, please remember that you can use the citation tool within either EBSCO or JSTOR to generate entries that you can copy and paste directly into your Works Cited.
