The Great Gatsby

1- In 1925, The Great Gatsby was published by F. Scott Fitzgerald. 

2- It is considered a vastly more mature and artistically masterful treatment of Fitzgerald's themes than his earlier fiction.

3- The story is about farmer's son-turned racketeer, named Jay Gatz. 

4- His ill-gotten wealth is acquired solely to gain acceptance into the sophisticated, moneyed world of the woman he loves, Daisy Fay Buchanan. 

5- His romantic illusions about the power of money to buy respectability and the love of Daisy;the “golden girl” of his dreams, depict what Fitzgerald viewed as the moral irresponsibility of the affluent American society of the 1920s.

6- America at this time experienced a cultural and lifestyle revolution ; the stock market boomed, the rich spent money on fabulous parties and expensive acquisitions, the automobile became a symbol of glamour and wealth, and profits were made, both legally and illegally.
