"The Great Gatsby" by Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, an American male writer of the early 20th century and "Farewell My Concubine" by Li Bihua, a female Hong Kong writer of the mid-to-late 20th century are two classical works in literary research. This dissertation analyses and contrasts the two novels' male characters from the standpoint of gender poetics. Our analysis demonstrates that male and female writers have the same perspectives on male characters when researching the objective assessment and warm caring of men displayed in their works.
