The Great Gatsby Primary Source Set:

"Published in 1925, Gatsby explores Americans’ increasing disillusionment with the idea of the American dream during the glittery, overindulgent “Jazz Age.” The novel offers various American thematic elements: the struggle to escape the past, the intoxicating lure of wealth, the nostalgia of first love, and the impossible lengths humans go to achieve their dreams. These are better understood when accompanied by an exploration of cultural influences in the Roaring Twenties."
