Economic situations in F. Fitzgerald’s life gave him the inspiration for the character in The Great Gatsby. After graduating from the Newman School in 1913, Fitzgerald decided to settle in New Jersey to continue his artistic passion at Princeton University (“Fitzgerald F. Scott” 1). At Princeton, he committed himself to as a writer, by writing scripts for various musicals and articles for the Princeton Tiger and stories for the Nassau Literary Magazine (“Fitzgerald F. Scott”). But, his writing caused him difficulty in his studies, and was placed under academic probation. In 1917 F. Fitzgerald dropped out of Princeton because of his low income and lack of academic interest (“Fitzgerald F. Scott”).
