F. Scott Fitzgerald published The Great Gatsby in 1925, inspired by his romance with a wealthy socialite and the roaring galas he was privy to during their relationship. The plot similarly follows the narrator Nick Carraway’s account of his acquaintance with his wealthy and extravagant neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Gatsby seems intent on finding a way to reunite with Daisy, his former flame - and through his lavish parties and the blossoming vibrancy of the roaring 20s, the story aimed to delve into the morally permissive era and the indulgent social history of those decades. There is also a recurring allusion to the notion of the “American dream”.
