1. Introduction

1.1 F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby is a novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald that wins him tremendous fame. He was one of the most famous writer during the 1920s in American. He himself was an victim of his age. Born in St. Paul in the Middle West of America, Fitzgerald had experienced inferiority compared with his other classmates from the upper class in Princeton University. He did not finish school and joined the World War I. He was awarded as a second lieutenant and appointed to Alabama, where he engaged with Zelda from upper class. But this marriage was based on material success. Similar social experience made Fitzgerald’ s stories more relevant to readers in America at that time. 

First published by Scribner's in April 1925, The Great Gatsby had a poor sale. It was not appreciated by many contemporaries but T.S. Eliot and Gertrud Stein. Not until World War II that the novel was widely appreciated by literary world and became so popular that adaptation was made into the movie in the following decades. It is a story of a man from the bottom of society tries to capture the love of his old lover who from upper class. The protagonist Jay Gatsby took illegal means to become wealthy but finally died of the irrational love in the luxury and dissipated society. Nowadays, The Great Gatsby is widely considered to be a spokesman of the “Jazz Age”. In 1998 the Modern Library editorial board voted it the 20th century's best American novel and second best English-language novel of the same time period. The novel chronicles an era that Fitzgerald himself dubbed the Lost Generation. The novel sets in a background of post World War I, but its influence is in prevalence with age. Critics and scholars never abandon The Great Gatsby and stress its significance all the time. 研究《了不起的盖茨》中的“车”意象:/yingyu/lunwen_50717.html
