The “Secret Society” and Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby By F.Scott Fitzgerald

That was always my experience—a poor boy in a rich town; a poor boy in a rich boy’s school; a poor boy in a rich man’s club at Princeton…. However, I have never been able to forgive the rich for being rich, and it has colored my entire life and works.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald: A Life in Letters, ed. Matthew J. Bruccoli. New York: Scribners, 1994. pg. 352. (Cited in “Quotations,” from the EDSITEment reviewed F. Scott Fitzgerald Centenary.)
