BOOK OF THE DAY:
Chances are that if you are over the age of eighteen, you have read, The Great Gastby. It is hard to ignore a classic with the perfect element of historical essence. Set in the 1920s, Long Island, New York, Fitzgerald depicts the transformation of the American dream from the focus of individualism and the pursuit of happiness into indulgence and corrupted dreams.
Jay Gatsby, the main character is a walking, talking billboard of the American illusion. He is charismatic, wealthy, a war veteran, and most importantly he is in love. He is in love with Daisy Buchanan, who represents old aristrocracy and the shallowness achieved in the 1920’s American society. Although Gatsby’s wealth is founded on criminal activities, his heart is pure. His devotion and love for Daisy are what leads him to his death. Daisy is the representation of women in Fitzgerald’s eyes. She is beautiful, alluring, wealthy, but also dangerous. Without a doubt, every character and place is a signifier supporting the broken dreams of the Jazz Age.
The novel gives us a look into Fitzgerald’s psyche and real life. Nick Carraway, the narrator and glue of the story, is the ghost of Fitzgerald’s mind. Like Nick, Fitzgerald’s popularity introduced him into a new seductive lifestyle and his conflicting feelings on the Jazz Age. The Great Gatsby is worth revisiting or picking up for the first time; it is one of the most popular novels, which brings life to the dichotomy between beauty and danger in human nature.
