dc.description.abstract ABSTRACT F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is one of the most colourful and symbolic landmarks in American literature. The aim of this research is to analyse Fitzgerald’s narrative discourse in the novel. Hence, the first chapter introduces the socio-historical context of the novel. It shows the impact of the Jazz Age on American life. The second chapter deals with narrative discourse in The Great Gatsby. It examines Fitzgerald’s remarkable innovation in modern writing, breaking most of the previous literary rules and conventions. His use of multiple and unreliable narrators, relativity of time, modern tragedy, and colour symbolism are some of the stylistic techniques that brought the work many critical acclaims. The third chapter uses the deconstructive approach to literary to highlight the story’s undesirability and postponement or absence of meaning. Therefore, The Great Gatsby is more than just a love story of a poor man who wastes his life on a lie. It is a probe into the absurdities of life and death, good and evil, wealth and poverty, past and present, innocence and guilt, sanity and insanity, dream and nightmare. It is especially about the emptiness of Gatsby as well as language. en_US
