The Great Gatsby

Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. “The Great Gatsby” is one of those where you are taken back in time and taken through the minds of fictional characters that could easily be non-fiction. I thought this was a great analysis.


All due respect,

One thought on “The Great Gatsby

  1. FYI, The Great Gatsby isn’t a historical novel just because it’s set in the past; the story takes place in the early 1920s, but the book was published in 1925. Fitzgerald was writing about his present, whereas historical fiction is a work based on past historical events, usually with fictional characters and some fabrications. For example, The Red Badge of Courage, The Other Boleyn Girl, and The Name of the Rose are all historical novels.
