Identify Theme Worksheet Title of Novel Choice “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald Theme Statement The theme statement of “The Great Gatsby” is: “money can’t buy happiness.” Even if you live in opulence and wealth, you can still be unhappy with what you have. You can’t buy the affections of someone you love and you can’t escape the influence of society even if you have money. Secondary Source with 3 Citations “The Roaring Twenties” by the History Channel The History Channel’s article explains, that during the 1920s, “The nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929, and this economic growth swept many Americans into an affluent but unfamiliar “consumer society.” According to an article by the History Channel, the new consumerist culture was met with some opposition: “Many Americans were uncomfortable with this new, urban, sometimes racy “mass culture;” in fact, for many–even most–people in the United States, the 1920s brought more conflict than celebration.”
