The Roaring Lack of Morality in the 20s Morals were not thought of as a strict moral code during the roaring twenties, and many people found them rather irrelevant. Those whom threw parties, cheated, and lied, were those who were happiest during these times. The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, paints a picture of the 1920s by expressing many themes: the need for wealth, the want for love, and the act of betrayal in marriage through the Modern Era.
The Great Gatsby is probably F. Scott Fitzgerald 's greatest novel--a book that offers damning and insightful views of the American nouveau riche in the 1920s. The Great Gatsby is an American classic and a wonderfully evocative work. The novel 's events are filtered through the consciousness of its narrator, Nick Carraway, a young Yale graduate, who is both a part of and separate from the world he describes. Upon moving to New York, he rents a house next door to the mansion of an eccentric millionaire (Jay Gatsby).
During the 1920s, America seemed to be a land of glamor and luxury. Underneath the beauty, however, was a vast underworld of crime: bootleggers and gangs ran rampant, controlling even members of the government. In F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, he tells a tale of that decade, which appears glamorous but is filled with corruption. The novel makes a naturalism argument about the impossibility of changing social class, revealing that only a facade of mobility can be achieved through debaucherous actions.
In the novel The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald characterizes the 1920s as an era of decayed social and moral values. One of the major themes explored in this novel is the Hollowness of the Upper Class. The entire book revolves around money including power and little love. Coincidentally the three main characters of the novel belong to the upper class and throughout the novel Fitzgerald shows how this characters have become corrupted and have lost their morality due to excess money and success and this has led them to change their perspective towards other people and they have been portrayed as short-sighted to what is important in life. First of all, we have the main character of this novel, Gatsby who won’t stop at nothing to become rich overnight in illegal dealings with mobsters such as Wolfsheim in order to conquer Daisy’s heart.”
Shelley’s Frankenstein is often regarded as one of the greatest and most influential novels of all time. Many have dubbed it as a classic. When Dr. Frankenstein finally completed his experiment and the “creature” was born, he prejudged it as a monster. In Hollywood’s version of the book the creature is portrayed as a evil, ugly monster. Though anyone who's read the novel knows that the true evil monster is Dr.Frankenstein and Society.
Art is often a reflection of an artists’s own person. Even more than that are just small representations of the artists and creators. These may be a name, or quirk, or just visuals, but they inhabit all of the arts. The Great Gatsby, and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s other works are very personal. Many of them have characters reflecting himself, and scenarios that are similar to ones he experienced.
First, I will address Scott Fitzgerald’s proof chart. Then, I will address Nick Carraway’s appraisal of the painting. 1. The objection on work product grounds should be sustained in relation to Scott Fitzgerald’s proof chart.

Introductory paragraph: The roaring 20’s halted great success, cities became bigger, businesses became more successful, and money became more disposable, however while this time period inflicted great success it boasted many consequences as well. Life became unrealistic, standards became higher, life became more and more elite, and past emotions of war will still remained unhealed. All of these factors led people to lose touch with reality, and develop unrealistic ideologies. In his novel the Great Gatsby Fitzgerald utilizes stylistic devices to illustrate theses unrealistic ideologies of the time.
The 1920s was a time of flamboyance and wealth in the upper class. Jay Gatsby, a man of old money, threw over the top parties, in which he would spend his money very nonchalantly. The ambiance of his parties greatly illustrated the upper class of the time. The author uses symbolism and characterization to support the central idea that the upper class was very careless, wealthy, and extravagant. Gatsby’s parties are luxurious, glamorous, and over the top.
Do you start acting differently when you are around certain people? This is based upon how much love you have for them. If you do not really like them, you would not necessarily tell them personal things, or even be nice to them. If you love them, you would get into deep conversations and talk about important things. F. Scott Fitzgerald shows this through Jay Gatsby, an important character in The Great Gatsby.
