Jasmina Romanić, 2011, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: The theme of this graduation thesis is a comparative analysis of adjectives in the novel The Great Gatsby and the historical text A History of Women. The purpose was to theoretically define and classify adjectives according to position, formation, grading, and semantic grouping; and to use this theory for a comparative analysis. Therefore, the main structure of theoretical part of the thesis is based on Biber’s Grammar of spoken and written English, and Blaganje’s Modern English Grammar. The principal object was to find out differences between adjectives in literary and non-literary texts, in this case between the novel The Great Gatsby and the historical text A History of Women. The results showed that in the selected sample of seven pages of both texts there are 51% more adjectives in The Great Gatsby than in A History of Women, and that in both texts attributive adjectives predominate. A History of Women has 1% more of attributive adjectives than The Great Gatsby. The research was carried out manually, while the statistical results are shown in graphs made by a computer. The methods used in thesis are the descriptive method and causal non-experimenting method.

Postmodern Elements in Luhrmann's Adaptation of The Great Gatsby
Nina Kresnik, 2014, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: The aim of this diploma thesis was to find postmodern elements in Luhrman’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. Since The Great Gatsby is a modernist novel, published in 1925 and the aim was to find postmodern elements in the movie adaptation, modernism and postmodernism are explained first. Then the novel with its content, themes, motifs and symbols is examined thoroughly in order to explain how postmodern elements in the movie make the novel’s story interesting for today’s generation. Finally the postmodern elements in the movie are examined and connected to the novel’s story, themes, motifs and symbols. I came to the conclusion that postmodern elements in the movie are the reason why the movie adaptation of the novel, published almost ninety years ago, is so interesting to today’s generation.
Keywords: modernism, postmodernism, The Great Gatsby, 1920s, postmodern elements in the movie, cinematic techniques, the music, the fashion.
