9780199536405: The Great Gatsby

"He talked a lot about the past and I gathered that he wanted to recover something, some idea of himself perhaps, that had gone into loving Daisy. His life had been confused and disordered since then, but if he could once return to a certain starting place and go over it all slowly, he could find out what that thing was . . ."

The Great Gatsby (1925), F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, stands among the greatest of all American fiction. Jay Gatsby's lavish lifestyle in a mansion on Long Island's gold coast encapsulates the spirit, excitement, and violence of the era Fitzgerald named `the Jazz Age'. Impelled by his love for Daisy Buchanan, Gatsby seeks nothing less than to recapture the moment five years earlier when his best and brightest dreams - his `unutterable visions' - seemed to be incarnated in her kiss.

A moving portrayal of the power of romantic imagination, as well as the pathos and courage entailed in the pusuit of an unattainable dream, The Great Gatsby is a classic fiction of hope and disillusion. This edition is fully annotated with a fine Introduction incorporating new interpretation and detailing Fitzgerald's struggle to write the novel, its critical reception and its significance for future generations.

ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

L'autore:

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (born September 24, 1896 – died December 21, 1940) was a writer of novels and short stories. He is widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. However, neither he nor this book were so highly regarded in his lifetime. The Great Gatsby was not popular upon initial printing, selling fewer than 25,000 copies during the remaining fifteen years of Fitzgerald's life. Many copies remained unsold when Fitzgerald died in 1940 and he had been largely forgotten. Many of his obituaries mentioned Gatsby as evidence that he had great potential that he never reached. After his death interest in this novel developed. Three movie versions have been made as well as numerous TV shows. Perhaps the timeless themes of love and betrayal, of men and women ignoring the bonds of marriage and seeking new and re-seeking old lovers, have brought this to the fore, not to mention the tragic end.

L'autore:

Ruth Prigozy is Professor and former Chair of English at Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York. She has edited Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise and is co-editor of the F.Scott Fitzgerald Newsletter.
