Fitzgerald's Gatsby was a genius reinterpretation of Petronius' Trimalchio, a nouveau-riche buffoon who comically aspires to a redemptive status as a munificent freedman.
Fitzgerald incredibly redrew this ancient satire into a scathing parody of the American dream. The Magus and the Fool is more a queer pantomime. While the novel makes explicit, sexually explicit, some of the tantalizingly coded queerness of the Great Gatsby Nick's guarded affection for Gatsby, Jordan Baker's lesbianism , I wish it had more creatively reworked its source.
I was disappointed that the novel didn't try to remedy some of the anti-Semitic aspects of the the Great Gatsby instead, the novel doubles down on the Jewish references with its various names, Levi, Jacobi, Kaplan, Krohn, Rosenberg and its suggestion of some Jewish pharmaceutical conspiracy, just like Wolfsheim's fixing of the Black Sox Scandal. And some of the characters don't make sense anymore Donovan seems more like a drag caricature of Daisy, rolling around in Jacobi's clothes and pleading powerlessly that he loves Jacobi and Fallon equally, hysterically speeding down the highway.
The novel is a burlesque homage. I don't agree with the critique of this book that it is gratuitously transphobic and anti-Semitic the Great Gatsby's characters are also racist and sexist; that's not an endorsement of prejudice but a critique of stupid, myopic wealth.
But I don't think this novel achieves the same deft satirical effect. Thanks to netgalley for the online copy! To view it, click here. ARC copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. However, this book has gratuitous antisemitism I say gratuitous in that it is included in a way that is not critiqued or challenged. I loved how he chased after me, but really, he was low class.
And everybody seemed to know it except me! Try my best to get along, Make some friends but something always went wrong, I'd come on too strong.
Things were really getting rough, Getting tired of acting like I was tough, I'd just had enough. Fought like soldiers On the battlefields of love, We never could admit, We'd had enough. Took no prisoners Struggled to survive, Now you and me, Are the walking wounded.
