The Enduring Appeal of the Great Gatsby
Since The Great Gatsby’s debut in 1925, it’s been dismissed, beloved, misunderstood, interpreted, reinterpreted, and deified among the greatest American novels. This year, Gatsby enters the public domain, ensuring a new creative crop of reimaginings. Why, after almost a hundred years, do we keep finding ways to explore this novel? Join scholar and critic Maureen Corrigan, author of So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why it Endures for a discussion of the past, present, and future of Fitzgerald’s novel.
