This paper explains the significance of the following passage from "The Great Gatsby", drawing attention to Fitzgerald's use of grotesque and unusual phrases to underline the strangeness of the story (and of American society in the 1920s): "...he must have felt that he had lost warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. He must have looked up at an unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he founded what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass."
