The Great Gatsby

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.
