- THE AUTHOR AND HIS/HER TIMES: Born; 1896 /Died; December 21, 1940: biographical background important to under standing the novel: important family, community, national, and world events that influenced the author and the novel. F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St Paul, Minnesota of mixed Southern and Irish descent.
- The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a portrayal of the withering of the American Dream. The American Dream promises prosperity and self-fulfillment as rewards for hard work and self-reliance. A product of the frontier and the west, the American Dream challenges people to have dreams and strive to make them real.
- In today society, many people like to follow the current. They want to catch the wave. Which mean, it does not matter if things were good or bad, right or wrong, they just follow and do them without any thinking. Therefore, there are not too many people would like to be a normal, thoughtful nor neutral person.
- "Gatsbys personal dream symbolizes the larger American dream where all have the opportunity to get what they want.
- Through the interactions between male and female characters, Fitzgerald depicts a variety of social expectations regarding “typical” male behavior in the 1920’s. In the novel The Great Gatsby, characters such as Tom Buchanan, Jay Gatsby, George Wilson and Nick Carraway demonstrate behavior that acts to maintain and live up to expectations inherent in society.
- Carraway is involved in all of the events of the novel, yet does not play a significant active role; he is only a passive observer. When Nick arrives in New York, he soon visits his relatives, the Buchanans, who live in East Egg.
- " Everything about Fitzgerald is touched by this idea. For example, he both loved and hated money. He was attracted to the life of the very rich as an outsider who had very little, and at the same time he hated the falseness and hypocrisy and cruelty of their lives.
- “The Sensible Thing,” by F. Scott Fitzgerald shares numerous characteristics with his other writings. Like many writers, his work was heavily influenced by his life. Published criticisms note similarities between attitudes of the Roaring Twenties. In order to interpret “The Sensible Thing,” it is necessary to examine F.
- Like the setting says, the story takes place at West Egg in Long Island. The narrator, Nick, is not like the people of West Egg. He drives out to East Egg to have dinner with his cousin Daisy and her husband Tom where he is introduced to Jordan Baker, the woman who he will begin a romantic relationship with.
- Often, readers of this novel confuse Nick’s stance towards those characters and the world he describes with those of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s because the fictional world he has created closely resembles the world he himself experienced. But not every narrator is the voice of the author.
- Cleanth Brooks begins the essay by stating that Americans have believed that we are innocent. He implies that our innocence is depleting. Fitzgerald uses his wide array of characters throughout the novel The Great Gatsby in order to portray the image as he sees it, and perhaps what Americans believed during that time, of the “innocent” American.
- Through descriptions of guests coming and going frequently, and the obnoxious drinking and wild conversation going on at the New York and West Egg parties, the reader can conclude that neither of these locations are above the social standing of an upper class party of East Egg, such as one at Tom and Daisy Buchanan?s without the slight insanity of their dysfunctional family.
- The novel THE GREAT GATSBY is rich with symbolism. Two of the most apparent of these are the green light and the names of the people who attended Mr. Gatsby’s parties. These are just some the symbolism that occur in the book, but they are the ones that I will be talking about in this critical analysis.

- On a warm summer day in 1924 when F. Scott Fitzgerald sat down to start his next project, he had no idea that he would be writing one of the greatest novels in history. In the summer and fall of 1924, Fitzgerald spent his time in France writing a novel that would eventually become known as The Great Gatsby.
- The Great Gatsby, a novel by Scott Fitzgerald, is about the American Dream, and the downfall of those who attempt to reach its illusionary goals. The attempt to capture the American Dream is the point of many novels. This dream is different for different people; but in The Great Gatsby, for Jay Gatsby, the dream is that through wealth and power, one can acquire happiness.
- An examination of the connection between F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, and T.S. Eliot’s poem, “The Waste Land,” reveals that Fitzgerald transposes the meanings and motifs of “The Waste Land” to The Great Gatsby. For instance, the poem begins with:
- Scott Fitzgerald published the book in 1925 using the actual time in history, the Roaring Twenties to help create Gatsby’s character. Gatsby’s participation in the bootlegging business, the extravagant parties he throws, and the wealthy, careless lifestyle the Buchanans represent, are all vivid pictures of that time frame.
- Secondly, Gatsby attempts to exemplify his wealth through fancy cars and stylish clothing. Gatsby shows his clothing to Daisy and informs her that he has a “man in England” who buys his clothes every season (Fitzgerald 97).
- Jay Gatsby believes he can buy happiness; and this is exhibited through his house, his clothes, and through Daisy. He owns a large portion of finances due to some mysterious source of wealth, and he uses this mystery source to buy his house, his clothes,and Daisy, for awhile.
