The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel written by American author F. Scott Fitzgerald that follows characters living in the fictional towns of West Egg and East Egg on prosperous Long Island in the summer of 1922. The story concerns the young and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his passion and obsession to reunite with his ex-lover, the beautiful former debutante Daisy Buchanan. The Great Gatsby explores themes of decadence, idealism, resistance to change, social upheaval and excess, creating a portrait of the Roaring Twenties that has been described as a cautionary tale regarding the American Dream. Many literary critics consider The Great Gatsby to be one of the greatest novels ever written.
"Winter Dreams" is regarded as one of Fitzgerald's finest works for poignantly portraying the loss of youthful illusions. Many of its themes were later expanded upon in The Great Gatsby.
