So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. ‘F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby was first published on April 10, 1925. Set on Long Island’s North Shore and in New York City during the summer of 1922, it is the story of an attractive young man, hopelessly in love, who, having worked so hard to improve himself so he can win back the woman he loves, finds himself in a world where money has replaced humility and despair has replaced hope. For me, the novel is a comment on the values and cynicism of east coast America almost a hundred years ago, a time when a section of society had suddenly become very wealthy and the American Dream was for most, nothing more than the mere pursuit of money.’ Peter Joucla ‘Peter Joucla’s surprisingly clear-eyed adaptation cuts to the heart of Fitzgerald’s text while preserving a very decent amount of it.’ 4 stars –Evening Standard ‘Evoking all the glamour and atmosphere of the roaring twenties, Wilton’s brings Gatsby to glorious, all-singing, all-dancing life (jazz hands optional). A must-see’ – welovethisbook.com ‘An unashamed nostalgia party for a world we never knew... This is a show that majors in fun; and it’s no surprise to see it’s a cult hit.’ Telegraph

The exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgeralds' third book, The Great Gatsby (1925), stands as the supreme achievement of his career. T. S. Eliot read it three times and saw it as the "first step" American fiction had taken since Henry James; H. L. Mencken praised "the charm and beauty of the writing," as well as Fitzgerald's sharp social sense; and Thomas Wolfe hailed it as Fitzgerald's "best work" thus far. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, The New York Times remarked, "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth. A novel of lyrical beauty yet brutal realism, of magic, romance, and mysticism, The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.

Kathleen Parkinson places this brilliant and bitter satire on the moral failure of the Jazz Age firmly in the context of Scott Fitzgerald's life and times. She explores the intricate patterns of the novel, its chronology, locations, imagery and use of colour, and how these contribute to a seamless interplay of social comedy and symbolic landscape. She devotes a perceptive chapter to Fitzgerald's controversial portrayal of women and goes on to discuss how the central characters, Gatsby and Nick Carraway, embody and confront the dualism inherent in the American dream.

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: Distinction, City of Bath College, language: English, abstract: Francis Scott Fitzgerald is now considered to be one of the seminal figureheads for contemporary American literature. He inspired contemporaries around him such as Ernest Hemingway, T.S Eliot and later would be revered by 20th and 21st century writers, such as Hunter S. Thompson: who once claimed that to learn to use a typewriter, he would retype the Great Gatsby over and over. He brought life to the self coined "Jazz Age" of writers; and with this, he brought a voice to a nation writing their own, comparably short, artistic histories. Fitzgerald would never know of his posthumous wealth of success, and, during his transient life, he had a tortuous relationship with his public persona, those around him and the influence that alcohol had on his life. These things indelibly marked most of his writings, and can be clearly seen in many aspects of his novels. This paper will identify and analyse the transcriptions, of the man behind the exquisite writing style, and bring light to the greater meanings that can be found within his first three novels: This Side of Paradise (1920), Beautiful and Damned (1922) and Great Gatsby (1925).
