about

In The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald brilliantly captures both the disillusion of post-war America and the moral failure of a society obsessed with wealth and status. But he does more than render the essence of a particular time and place, for in chronicling Gatsby’s tragic pursuit of his dream, Fitzgerald recreates the universal conflict between illusion and reality.

From Our Editors

In the decade following the end of the Great War, America sunk into a profound sense of disillusionment. While Americans became obsessed with the pursuit of glamour and riches, the roaring 20s were also driven by a sense of despair and moral failure - by a widespread sentiment that the world and the country were unable to deliver what they had promised. The period comes alive in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, a book now recognized as one of the great classics of American literature.
