Scott Fitzgerald, is set on Long Island in the fictional town of West Egg in 1922. Fitzgerald focuses on the representation of old money, which is families that have been wealthy for generations, and new money, which is self- made money on current trends, through the character’s motivations and interactions or relationships with others. Throughout the novel, Fitzgerald uses the nature of wealth and status to show its dehumanizing or corrupting nature with characters through differences in wealth and how they came about it.
