Abstract:

F. Scott Fitzgerald defined the 1920's calling, it the "Jazz Age." His work reflected both the excitement of the decade and the misery of the Great Depression that followed. He is indeed a classic storyteller but like many artists he suffered for his work. Scott's writing came from dealing with the pain he experienced in his life. Hiding this pain from the outside world and "keeping up appearances" are themes echoed in his work. Although many of the characters Scott wrote about seemed well off, they usually worried about money. While many authors crate sympathy for characters who are poor, Scott could get reader rooting for characters who were rich. His novels such as The Great Gatsbby are still read and enjoyed not just as reflection s of the times in which he lived, but as reflections of his life as well.
