With an Introduction and Notes by Guy Reynolds, University of Kent at Canterbury. Generally considered to be F. Scott Fitzgerald's finest novel, 'The Great Gatsby' is a consummate summary of the "roaring twenties", and a devastating expose of the "Jazz Age". Through the narration of Nick Carraway, the reader is taken into the superficially glittering world of the mansions which lined the Long Island shore in the 1920s, to encounter Nick's cousin Daisy, her brash but wealthy husband Tom Buchanan, Jay Gatsby and the mystery that surrounds him. 'The Great Gatsby' is an undisputed classic of American literature from the period following the First World War and is one of the great novels of the twentieth century. AUTHOR: There are few, if any, classic novelists whose current popularity exceeds that of F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940). With his novels and short stories of "The Jazz Age", Fitzgerald is considered one of the greatest American novelists of the twentieth century, and 'The Great Gatsby' is his masterpiece.
