After researching, discuss how understanding f. scott fitzgerald’s real life is key to understanding the great gatsby. how did he use his own life experiences in plotting and writing the novel? you must look beyond the obvious similarities and try to discuss more deeply what fitzgerald may have been saying about his life. you must also include a discussion of “the american dream.” what is fitzgerald saying about it in gatsby? how does that relate to his own life?
??? i dont get it
The correct answer is A) F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Steinbeck.
American life at this time was one of contrast, from economic prosperity to abject poverty. Two-period authors who captured these experiences in realistic fiction were A. F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Steinbeck.
These two important authors are considered to be part of the "lost generation," the term that commonly describes the writers that went to live in Europe at the end of World War 1.
Fitzgerald (1896-1940) was a fiction writer that dedicated part of his work to describe the Jazz Age and wrote "The Great Gatsby" and "TGis Side of Paradise." John Steinbeck (1902-1968) wrote about events of his time that were reflected in novels such as "The Grapes of Wrath," that granted him the Pulitzer Prize. He also won the Nobel Literature Prize in 1962.
to be honest I'm not sure how to do this question plz
