Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to furnish such evidence by examining and evaluating the accuracy with which Fitzgerald's work reflects his age, that is, the degree of the reality and illusion of histoiy in his works. Consideration of the history of the time will be limited, first, primarily to the cultural history of the period, and, second, to those facets of the period which are dealt with in the principal themes of Fitzgerald's fiction.
