Since Nick and Gatsby’s relationship to one another informs our understanding of them, I would argue that William Troy is mistaken in his study of the characters as separate individuals . For although they embody contrasting traits, Gatsby and Nick come to complement one another and do not exist within The Great Gatsby apart from each other, illustrating the necessity of aspects of each character and symbolic of the balance that Fitzgerald was adamant to achieve between his conflicting responsibilities as a writer and as a husband. Fitzgerald’s conflicted emotions, in regards to reconciling his marriage and responsibilities, are expressed and played out in conversation between Nick and Gatsby. On the one hand, Gatsby argues that he can ‘fix everything just the way it was before’, whilst Nick, on the other, warns Gatsby that ‘You can’t repeat the past’ . This conflict of opinions parallels the conflict that Fitzgerald experienced himself and is heightened by Gatsby’s desire for Daisy to ‘go to Tom and say: “I never loved you.”’, consequently ‘obliterat[ing] four years’ of history together. This echoes Fitzgerald’s own subconscious desire to eradicate from memory Zelda’s romance with Edouard, to rewind time and begin again. I suggest Fitzgerald’s desire to do so was ‘unconscious’ because, although he believed his marriage ‘could never be repaired’ , he later confessed that ‘I can never remember the times when I wrote anything’, but rather ‘lived in the story’ of his novels . This suggests that rather than confront Zelda, Fitzgerald poured his emotions into his writing and as a result, conveyed through Gatsby his nostalgia and wish to recover the past. It is this nostalgia however, that Wright Morris argues ‘reduces [Fitzgerald’s] ability to function’ as a husband and as a writer; a notion that also extends to Gatsby who was unable to recreate his past with Daisy and thus, on realising that ‘the past was dead, and that the present had no future’ , ultimately crumbled. This parallel between Gatsby and Fitzgerald, in addition to Fitzgerald’s similarities to Nick, complicates the notion of where the characters end and Fitzgerald begins. For Fitzgerald ‘lived the story’ of The Great Gatsby, and in doing so, he confessed that Gatsby unintentionally ‘changed into [him]self ’; a notion that challenges Edmund Wilson’s criticism of Fitzgerald for being ‘very much wrapped up in his dream of himself and his projection of it on paper’ , debateable considering Gatsby’s resemblance to the author was unintentional. In fact, Gatsby is arguably more concerned with his dream of himself than Fitzgerald, for Nick notes that he wants to recover ‘some idea of himself…that had gone into loving Daisy’ , suggesting that Wilson, among many other critics, has fallen foul of attributing Gatsby’s flaws to Fitzgerald. In conclusion, although both This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned blur the lines between Fitzgerald and their protagonists, The Great Gatsby complicates this notion further by incorporating aspects of the author into multiple characters and yet, despite this, many biographers consider Fitzgerald to resemble Gatsby and have even attributed the character’s flaws to Fitzgerald too. Significantly, Fitzgerald himself confessed that he ‘lived the story’ of The Great Gatsby, suggesting that even the author was somewhat confused as to the distinction between himself and his writing. Amid this confusion however, are a number of dichotomies, Nick and Gatsby, dreams and reality, and writing and husbandry, which characterise not only Fitzgerald’s life and his writing but also the Fitzgerald caricature which is distinguished by its conflicted and divided nature.
