Abstract or Summary
  • In This Side of Paradise, The Great Gatsby, and several of his short stories, F. Scott Fitzgerald questions the importance of wealth as a factor in supporting happiness and fostering the American Dream on an individual basis. With these texts, Fitzgerald acknowledges that wealth is a factor and, simultaneously, a problem in fulfilling one’s dreams. Furthermore, he suggests that idealism is a more essential, lasting factor, in comparison to wealth or social status, in motivating individuals to reach goals or to sustain defeats. However, as Fitzgerald’s writing suggests, personal idealism often conflicts with drives for social status and wealth—a problem which foresees potential concerns in contemporary American culture.
