F. Scott Fitzgeralds's The Great Gatsby:The Underbelly of the American Dream
[ Click here to purchase this essay ]
It is widely accepted that the theme of Fitzgerald's second novel, The Great Gatsby, was the imputation of the concept of materialism inherent in the 'American Dream' of the Roaring Twenties. That the novel is set in the twenties is relevant to the underlying meaning proposed by the political beliefs of the author and the language he chose to use in the novel. This 5 page paper proposes that Fitzgerald, as a proponent of Marxist thought, presents the character of Gatsby as representative of the worst of those striving to live within the myth of the American Dream - the 'underbelly' of the beast that he considered conspicuous consumption to be. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
