The 1920s in the United States were known as the Roaring Twenties and the Jazz Age, a time in the nation that glorified hard and fast living. Nobody personified the age or wrote so descriptively about it better than F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940), whose name became synonymous with the times after penning the epic Great Gatsby. Along with his dazzling wife Zelda, Fitzgerald was all too keen to play the role. When his writing made them celebrities, they were celebrated by the national press for being young, seemingly wealthy, beautiful, and energetic. While Scott used their relationship as material in his novels, Zelda wrote herself, and she also strove to become a ballerina. However, the Fitzgeralds barely outlasted the 20s. Their hard living left Fitzgerald, a notorious alcoholic, in poor health by the 30s. Financially broke, he would die of a massive heart attack in 1940, by which time Zelda had already suffered various mental illnesses. Zelda died in a freak fire in 1948, both Fitzgeralds having burned out almost as quickly as they had shined. Interest in the Fitzgeralds, and particularly his writing, revived in the 50s and has been steady ever since, with Fitzgeralds Great Gatsby and other stories like This Side of Paradise being read in classrooms across the United States. In addition to their extraordinary literary quality, they continue to represent the optimism of the Roaring Twenties. In addition to covering Fitzgeralds timeless classic in detail, Everything You Need to Know About The Great Gatsby includes a biography of the Fitzgeralds, discussion about Fitzgeralds inspiration for the novels characters, and a full-fledged explanation of the plot, themes, and symbols of this Great American Novel. With The Great Gatsby and its underlying themes as relevant as ever today, get caught up quickly with this resourceful guide.
