The Great Gatsby is Scott Fitzgerald’s most famous novel and an established classic of modern American literature. Gatsby himself has become a symbol of the American dream, in all its grandeur and vulgarity, and the novel of which he is the protagonist has become a major example of accessible Modernist writing; it combines the readability of nineteenth-century fiction with something of the intricacy of language and structure which characterizes the texts of James Joyce and Virginia Woolf.
