If I recall correctly, The Great Gatsby was mandatory summer reading for the Yale freshman class a couple of years ago. Gatsby, celebrated as one of America's great novels, has as its central character, someone who --- for lack of a more suitable eupehmism -- stalks Daisy Buchanon in a cloud of ‘new money’ and garish conspicuous consumption whose “foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams.” Today, such behavior could be considered obsessive compulsive “unwanted attention”, i.e. tantamount to “sexual harassment.”
I doubt any of the freshman discussion groups on that summer’s reading presented Jay Gatsby in that unfavorable light.
Do we seek to educate about sexual harassment with the left hand, while celebrating it in literature with the right hand?
