The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a revolutionary novel discussing the theme of social stratification during the roaring 20’s. Published in 1925, this novel introduces the idea of lavish parties, rising gender roles, and the value of money. The novel follows the journey of a working class man who earns new money, struggles with competitors with old money, and overcomes obstacles to rekindle his past love. This novel is a classic and I definitely recommend reading it.
