Author(s): Amit G Ramteke, Dr Sanjay R Singh
Abstract: Fitzgerald’s treatment of the social relationships was highly insightful adumbrating the future changes of the dynamic society he dealt with. He had the foresight to see several things in advance like any other great writer. From the tendencies of the youth and the old alike he knew what dreaded things were gong to happen in the imminent future. He was apprehensive of such a situation and wished to avoid it as far as possible. He knew that the Americans were heading towards a disastrous plight from which they would find it almost impossible to extricate themselves. He did not want his country men to be entrapped like that. So through the realistic as well as romantic portrayal of the would be society with all its dangerous implications Fitzgerald gave a shock-treatment to the reading public and helped them disentangle themselves from their perilous occupations and preoccupations.
