The Great Gatsby, D.af F. Scott Fitsgerald
In 'The Great Gatsby' F. Scott Fitzgerald gives a splendid picture of America after the First World War - a time when the most important thing in life for some people was to gain wealth and status. Fitzgerald depicts the bright and empty life of the rich, and yet is able to infuse meaning into it. The main character, Gatsby, believes that his youth and beauty can be regained if he can make enough money.
