The Great Gatsby The most widely read and widely translated American novel of this century. The Great Gatsby explores the uniquely American possibilities that allow individuals to remake themselves. Rich with imagery and symbolism this book reflects not only F. Scott Fitzgerald, but also the world of the Roaring Twenties. Even today, its focus on the worship of money and power, of youth and success, make it as relevant now as on the day it was written. Reenactment footage intercut with scenes from the 1974 film Gatsby, starring Robert Redford, interviews with experts, and dramatic narrative work to unlock the complexity of this novel's characters.
