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.
