Abstract in Portuguese
O objetivo desta dissertação é analisar como a contradição presente na narração do romance The Great Gatsby de F. Scott Fitzgerald expõe as tensões sociais e históricas dos Estados Unidos dos anos 1920. Tal contradição, revelada na linguagem e no conteúdo da obra, exige uma leitura atenta do descompasso entre o ponto de vista do narrador memorialista e os valores morais que ele apresenta no início do romance. Exploraremos de que forma o movimento reflexivo da narração de Nick Carraway demonstra a tentativa de construção de entendimento dos fatos por meio da reconstrução das memórias, e como essa reflexão leva o narrador a desvelar a alienação e compreender os meandros da sociedade norte-americana no período pós-Primeira Guerra Mundial.

Abstract in English
The aim of this dissertation is the analysis of the contradiction present in the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and how it exposes the social and historical tensions of the United States of America during the 1920s. Such contradiction, which is revealed in the language and content of the novel, demands a thorough reading of the mismatch between the point of view of the memoirist narrator and the moral values he presents in the beginning of the text. We explore how the reflexive movement of Nick Carraways narration shows his attempt to build understanding of the facts by the reconstruction of his memories, and how this reflection leads the narrator to unveil alienation and understand the intricacies of post-World War I American society.
