Transcript of F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Great Gatsby
and "Winter Dreams" Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “I look forward confidently to the day when all who work for a living will be one with no thought to their separateness as Negroes, Jews, Italians or any other distinctions. This will be the day when we bring into full realization the American dream -- a dream yet unfulfilled. A dream of equality of opportunity, of privilege and property widely distributed; a dream of a land where men will not take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few…” , Many writers in American literature have
based their works
