"The beauty and splendor of Gatsby's parties masked the innate corruption within the heart of the Roaring Twenties. Jazz-Age society was a bankrupt world, devoid of morality, and plagued by a crisis of character." Should I agree or disagree with this statement for an essay? Im not sure which to do.

    Metaphorically, it is quite interesting to talk about, and to some extent true. It is like any other time period, for instance now in America, we only see that modernized nation in the big cities, if you actually go out into the small towns it is quite still very rural. The "Roaring Twenties" did exemplify a new American way of life in U.S history.. but it was most common in the cities, and on top of that like the quote says it was "devoid of morality, and plagued by a crisis of character.." How? Just analyze the novel as a whole. Fitzgerald did it to make fun of this age. Sure it was filled with "splendor" and new riches.. but with that it also brought a very materialistic sense of the world. You also get that at the time of the Industrial Revolution in both Europe with wingspanens' Hard Times, and in America..with that whole uniform landscape... etc.
