I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.
The Great Gatsby provides a critical social history of America during the Twenties- the era, known for unprecedented economic prosperity, the evolution of jazz music, flapper culture and criminal activity. Fitzgerald uses these societal developments of the 1920s to build Gatsby’s stories from simple details like automobiles to broader themes like Fitzgerald’s discreet allusions to the organized crime culture which was the source of Gatsby’s fortune. Fitzgerald educates his readers about the garish society of the Roaring Twenties by placing a timeless plotline within the historical context of the era.
This is a story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan.
