BBC Radio4 „In our time“: „The Great Gatsby“

Logo BBC bei Wikimedia Commons„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss F. Scott Fitzgerald’s finest nov­el, pub­lished in 1925, one of the great Amer­i­can nov­els of the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry.
It is told by Nick Car­raway, neigh­bour and friend of the mys­te­ri­ous­ly wealthy Jay Gats­by. In the age of jazz and pro­hi­bi­tion, Gats­by hosts lav­ish par­ties at his opu­lent home across the bay from Daisy Buchanan, in the hope she’ll attend one of them and they can be reunit­ed. They were lovers as teenagers but she had giv­en him up for a rich­er man who she soon mar­ried, and Gats­by is obsessed with win­ning her back.
With Sarah Church­well (Pro­fes­sor of Amer­i­can Lit­er­a­ture and Pub­lic Under­stand­ing of the Human­i­ties at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don), Philip McGowan (Pro­fes­sor of Amer­i­can Lit­er­a­ture at Queen’s Uni­ver­si­ty, Belfast), and William Blazek (Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor and Read­er in Amer­i­can Lit­er­a­ture at Liv­er­pool Hope Uni­ver­si­ty).“
