About The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald:
Set in the Roaring Twenties—the years of excess just before the Great Depression—F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is a remarkable cautionary tale that explores the decline of morality in pursuit of the American Dream, and offerings a memorable social critique of 1920s high society.
Though commercially unsuccessful when first published, this Jazz Age–novel of decadence and betrayal endures as one of the most loved works in American literature.
