dc.description.abstract“Beautiful Little Feminist: Daisy’s Perspective in The Great Gatsby ” examines the backstory of Daisy Buchanan, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous character. The project has two parts: a creative short story and a supplemental research portion in which I researched the lives of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda Fitzgerald, and Ginevra King. The short story acts as a prologue to the famous novel, taking place during the month of October 1917 when Daisy and Gatsby first met. I carefully picked specific details that paralleled with the lives of both Zelda and Ginevra in order to authentically represent their voices, while also crafting a distinct aura that would align with the fictionalized characteristics of Daisy Buchanan. This creative thesis project is a “herstory” of Daisy Buchanan’s adolescence, debunking her villainous name and suggesting a feminist background in a time of emerging activism.en_US
