The Great Gatsby was written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. “In the years immediately after the completion of The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald was unable to provide his art with any such endorsement” (Collins). Fitzgerald was unable to get his book published because of insufficient funds. According to Harris, “F Scott Fitzgerald wrote his greatest novel in France in 1924, having exiled himself in order to get some work done” (Harris). The best novel Fitzgerald has written he wrote when he was in France. According to Kenneth, “The hard work was the eleven stories and articles Fitzgerald wrote in six months to get himself out of debt after the failure of The Vegetable.”(Kenneth). F. Scott Fitzgerald was a very hardworking author when his book The Vegetable became a failure. It took him eleven stories and articles written in six months to get him out of debt.
Also according to Harris, “But during those ten months of intense writing, he thought his way back to the parties, quarrels, hopes and disappointments of his life with Zelda and their friends on Long Island in the feted and fateful year of 1922” (Harris). When Fitzgerald was writing the book he remembered his entire lie with Zelda which helped inspire him while he was writing The Great Gatsby. Kenneth has stated, “The Great Gatsby is Fitzgerald’s best work, his most highly satisfactory novel. In recent years, it has been put forward by many critics as the best novel of Fitzgerald’s generation” (Kenneth). One of the best books Fitzgerald has ever written is The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald discusses several different characters in his book The Great Gatsby. Some of the main characters that Fitzgerald uses in his book are Gatsby, Daisy, and Nick.
In the book The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald discusses Gatsby. Gatsby was a very strange and mysterious man. According to Doreski, “Gatsby was far from perfect in many ways but all in all it contains such prose as has never been written in America before” (Doreski). Gatsby always throws very fancy parties that everyone attends. “I believe that on the first night I went to Gatsby’s house I was one of the few guests who had actually been invited. People were not invited—they went there (45).” Nick got an actual invitation to Gatsby’s party and he is probably the only person who has ever gotten an invitation. Gatsby invited Nick because he wanted to get close to him. He knew that Nick would be his easiest access to Daisy once they got to know each other.
Gatsby used Nick because he knew that Daisy was his cousin and he wanted to see her. “Nick’s cottage becomes the site of Gatsby’s reunion with Daisy. The material world seems to re-cede as Gatsby “revalued everything in his house according to the measure of response it drew from her well-loved eyes.” The once cavernous mansion, familiar only when filled with strangers, grows curiously intimate as the lovers wander through its rooms (Doreski).” Gatsby and Daisy seemed to get back to where they left off really quickly.
