Because of its inspiration to Fitzgerald, certain lines in the book were written and changed specifically because of his love for the cover that Francis Cugat created.

Fitzgerald 's sorrowful description of the 1920’s is boldly shown throughout his novel: “Fitzgerald uses imagery not only to create vivid effects but also to emphasize the book’s theme of loss” (Cavendish 532). His writing consists of many descriptive passages in order to show the reader the sadness throughout the novel. Francis utilized cool colors for the background, like dark blue, to create a spooky, hopeless, and depressing feeling. On the other hand, he used warm colors, like yellows and oranges, for the city at the bottom of the artwork to give the readers a feeling of craziness while looking at his illustration of New York. The cover, ‘Celestial Eyes’, shortly became one of the most famous book covers in American history after the final copy of the book was published on April 10, 1925. It is even said that it is “probably one of the most iconic images in the literary design history” (Runa). The cover of The Great Gatsby, created by Francis Cugat, is well…

    Should We Allow Genetic Engineering? Genetic engineering has many positives and negatives. The technology used to modify organisms has agricultural medical, industrial and environmental applications. DNA was discovered in 1950’s it wasn 't until the early 1970’s scientist figured how to engineer genes. It could be used to prevent diseases and create new ways to even alter the process of a disease formation before we’re even born. The study of coded proteins or genes bring out advancements in…

    high quality DNA sample which he used in his study. A Ph.D. Student, at the University of London. Raymond Gosling suggested to look at the samples through X-ray diffraction which was a new technique at the time. With this technique they could not see the atoms in the crystal but they could work backwards from the diffraction patterns and reconstruct the three-dimensional structure that produced the scattering. James Watson, an American biochemistry student at Naples Marine Station, was…

    1) A. In 1947 Francis Crick began working with Max Perutz at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. He began working on a new sector of the Laboratory where X-ray crystallography was being used in order to study protein structure. Crick's thesis project at the university was on X-ray diffraction of proteins. Crick then met John Watson and together they solved the structure of DNA using available X-ray data at the time and model building. After discovering the double helix model, Crick and…

    A gene is the fundamental unit of heredity. Genes determine the genotype and phenotype of living entities. Compared to the past, genetic research has advanced a great deal. For many centuries, it was believed that God had created the human species; however, due to the researches and experiments done by scientists like Hippocrates, Aristotle, Charles Darwin, Gregor Mendel… it is now accepted that the true force behind evolution, is the adaptation of the genetic code to the environment. As the…

    Did you know that genetically engineered bacteria is used to create human insulin? The medication Humulin is given to diabetic people who lack insulin. Scientists used enzymes to “cut” the section in our DNA that codes for creating insulin. They detached the gene and inserted it into the DNA of the bacteria. It resulted in a bacteria that carries human insulin. We’ve all seen genetic engineering succeed, like Dolly the sheep for example, the first ever mammal to be cloned, but will we see it…
