So I've recently re-watched HBO's "The Wire". Anyone who's seen it can vouch for the show being superb. In the 2nd season, there is a fabulous scene with a former drug dealer who's currently doing time in prison and evaluationg his life and his future. While in Jail he is taking classes and reads "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M2AUYYKfxk]YouTube - The Wire: DAngelo Barksdale reads Gatsby[/ame] Since first viewing The Wire... I have had the opportunity to teach numerous HS English Classes and I taught "The Great Gatsby" on a regular basis. No I know "The Wire" is fictional, but I really wish one of my kids could have said something half as intelligent about the book as D'Angelo. Anyways, I plan on showing future classes this clip after we read the book and ask them whether or not they agree with D'Angelo's opinion of Jay Gatsby. What do you blades think? Anyone read "The Great Gatsby" or seen "The Wire" or both?
