Is the Great Gatsby still relevant?

Why should students be required to read the Great Gatsby? How is it relatable for kids today?

Kate H.

The Great Gatsby is a great American Novel. It reflects the over the top excess that was in America in the Roaring 1920's before the Great Depression. Fitzgerald reflected on the struggle between time and fate. The American Dream was not fully achieved by Gatsby as he did not win his true love Daisy and died alone. While he succeeded financially in the American Dream Gatsby's heart was empty.
