Modern Classics Great Gatsby (05 Edition)by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
In 'The Great Gatsby', Fitzgerald brilliantly captures both the disillusion
of post-war America and the moral failure of a society obsessed with wealth
and status. But he does more than render the essence of a particular time
and place, for in chronicling Gatsby's tragic pursuit of his dream, Fitzgerald
re-creates the universal conflict between illusion and reality.
Everybody who is anybody is seen at Gatsby's glittering parties. None of the socialites understand Gatsby. He seems to always be watching and waiting, though no one knows what for. But as the tragic story unfolds, Gatsby's destructive dreams and passions are revealed.
