What makes The Great Gatsby great?

As Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic bursts on to our screens, it’s not hard to see why this cautionary tale of the decadent downside of the American dream has returned to haunt us, writes Sarah Churchwell

They called him an “ultra-modernist” and dismissed his books as overrated and forgettable, just “so much unnecessary evanescence travelling first class”. When his third novel was published, on 10 April 1925, a characteristic review complained: “The boy is simply puttering around. It is all right as a diversion for him, probably …

But why he should be called an author, or why any of us should behave as if he were, has never been satisfactorily explained to me.” At the last minute, he had asked his editor if they could change the new novel’s title to Under the Red, White and Blue, but it was too late. F Scott Fitzgerald’s ultra-modernist novel about jazz-age America would be called The Great Gatsby, and one anonymous reviewer spoke for most of its first readers in describing it as “one of the thousands of modern novels which must be approached with the point of view of the average tired person toward the movie-around-the-corner, a deadened intellect, a thankful resigning of the attention, and an aftermath of wonder that such things are produced”.
