While previous critical interpretations of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby have analyzed the narrative's time shifts and fragmentations, this study turns to the philosophy of time as a lens to explore the novel's depiction of permanence and change. Thus, natural daily and seasonal cycles come into focus as counters to modernity's broken clock-time and destructive pace.
