    The Great Gatsby

  1. Author: Fitzgerald, F. Scott
    Title: The Great Gatsby
    Date: 1925
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: According to "Historical Essay," Fitzgerald wrote to Cather to explain a similarity between his characterization of Daisy and Cather's of Mrs. Forrester. "Cather replied that before receiving his letter she had enjoyed reading The Great Gatsby, and she had not noticed a similarity with her story. Many writers had tried to say the same thing, she reflected; one can describe beauty only by describing its effect upon an observer (28 April 1925)."
