To What Extent Is ‘The Great Gatsby’ A Novel About The American Dream? Fitzgerald portrays the 1920s as an era of decayed social and moral values, evidenced in its overarching cynicism, greed, and empty pursuit of pleasure. The reckless jubilance that led to decadent parties and wild jazz music—epitomized in The Great Gatsby by the opulent parties that Gatsby throws every Saturday night—resulted ultimately in the corruption of the American dream, as the unrestrained desire for money and pleasure surpassed more noble goals. When World War I ended in 1918, the generation of young Americans who had fought the war became intensely disillusioned, as the brutal carnage that they had just faced made the Victorian social morality of early-twentieth-century America seem like stuffy, empty hypocrisy. The dizzying rise of the stock market in the aftermath of the war led to a sudden, sustained increase in the national wealth and a newfound materialism, as people began to spend and consume at unprecedented levels.

Full of smoke, whiskey fumes, the red faces of howling drunken men watching a white woman dancing and a group of black boys fighting, the room calls to mind a chaotic vision of hell by Hieronymus Bosch. Ralph Ellison was fascinated by the chaos of the world, and saw confronting and depicting it as a writer's responsibility. In "That Same Pain, That Same Pleasure: An Interview," he explain, "I think that the mixture of the marvelous and the terrible is a basic condition of
Secondly, Chaucer depicts him as being a morally corrupt sexual fiend. The Summoner is lecherous as a sparrow which was associated with lecherousness at that time (Robinson 666). The Summoner's corruption is shown with the following lines: Ther nas quyk-silver, lytarge, ne brymstoon, Boras, ceruce, ne oille of tartre noon, Ne oynement, that wolde clense and byte, (631-633) Chaucer lists and describes that no medicines and not even strong acids like sulphur and borax could help his condition. Cooper explains that his resistance to these strong medicines and acids signifies corruption, that he is corrupt from within and that is why he looks that way (57). In addition, the Summoner loves "garleek, oynons, and eek lekes" (636).

He is one of the “monsters born of Cain, murderous creatures banished by God… split into a thousand forms of evil – spirits and fiends, goblins, monsters, giants” (Raffel, p. 21). Born atrocious, born into darkness, “That demon, that fiend, Grendel, who haunted the Moors, the wild marshes, and made his home in a hell” (Raffel, p. 21). To make Grendel seem darker still, the author describes his home as a hell where he was banished to by God, leaving Grendel as a bitter, hating monster. Helping Grendel seem more of an epic villain is his hatred for man. Man knows “how Grendel’s hatred began, how the monster relished his savage war on the Danes, keeping the bloody feud alive, seeking no peace offering no truce… (Raffel, p. 22).” His hate is so strong for man because of what God has done to him.
