Download and read online The Great Gatsby in PDF and EPUB 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

Download and read online The Great Gatsby in PDF and EPUB The Great Gatsby is widely regarded as one of the masterpieces of American fiction. It tells of the mysterious Jay Gatsby’s grand effort to win the love of Daisy Buchanan, the rich girl who embodies for him the promise of the American dream. Deeply romantic in its concern with self-making, ideal love, and the power of illusion, it draws on modernist techniques to capture the spirit of the materialistic, morally adrift, post-war era Fitzgerald dubbed “the jazz age.” Gatsby’s aspirations remain inseparable from the rhythms and possibilities suggested by modern consumer culture, popular song, the movies; his obstacles inseparable from contemporary American anxieties about social mobility, racial mongrelization, and the fate of Western civilization. This Broadview edition sets the novel in context by providing readers with a critical introduction and crucial background material about the consumer culture in which Fitzgerald was immersed; about the spirit of the jazz age; and about racial discourse in the 1920s.

Download and read online The Great Gatsby in PDF and EPUB The main events of the novel take place in the summer of 1922. Nick Carraway, a Yale graduate and World War I veteran from the Midwest – who serves as the novel's narrator – takes a job in New York as a bond salesman. He rents a small house on Long Island, in the (fictional) village of West Egg, next door to the lavish mansion of Jay Gatsby, a mysterious millionaire who holds extravagant parties but does not participate in them. Nick drives around the bay to East Egg for dinner at the home of his cousin, Daisy Fay Buchanan, and her husband, Tom, a college acquaintance of Nick's. They introduce Nick to Jordan Baker, an attractive, cynical young golfer with whom Nick begins a romantic relationship. She reveals to Nick that Tom has a mistress, Myrtle Wilson, who lives in the "valley of ashes": an industrial dumping ground between West Egg and New York City. Not long after this revelation, Nick travels to New York City with Tom and Myrtle to an apartment they keep for their affair. At the apartment, a vulgar and bizarre party takes place. It ends with Tom breaking Myrtle's nose after she annoys him by saying Daisy's name several 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.

Download and read online A Contextualised Analysis of F Scott Fitzgerald s The Great Gatsby The Beautiful and Damned and This Side of Paradise in PDF and EPUB 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).
