We are left then with the enticing possibility that Fitzgerald's arresting image was originally prompted by Cugat's fantastic apparitions over the valley of ashes ; in other words, that the author derived his inventive metamorphosis from a recurrent theme of Cugat's trial jackets, one which the artist himself was to reinterpret and transform through subsequent drafts.

Scott Fitzgerald , first published in He is arguably one of the greatest writers of the 20th century and the success of The Great Gatsby proves to be nothing less than one of his great- est works. Fitzgerald is greatly valued in the Italian speaking world, with the majority of his English-language works being trans- lated, many by the prestigious publishing company Mondadori.
Although Fitzgerald was not well known in Italy until the late 50s, he has developed a notable place in literary studies and is currently a key figure of American literature to the Italian speaking world. Italian writer Sergio Perosa has thor- oughly analysed Fitzgerald's work and since then it has gained increased appreciation in Italy. Many critics have analysed different aspects of his work such as linguistic, structural, ideological and symbolic features.
Through the translation of literary devices, Cavagnoli maintains the poetic nature and flow of the original piece of work while adapting it to the Italian target audi- ence. Fitz- gerald uses characterisation as a key method of portraying this gap, con- structing each character in a specific way by adapting the writing style to match their social class. Cavagnoli remains faithful to this aspect of the orig- inal piece of work through her writing style and choice of translatants, which are the individual words the author selects in a translation in order for mean- ing to be carried across from one language to another.
It is also important to note that the divide between speech and narration is a platform used by Fitzgerald and supported by Cavagnoli in order to fur- ther associate characters with particular social classes. The speech style of the characters provides a lot of information about their background and social status and this style has been effectively preserved in the translated version.
Il Grande Gatsby (Italian Edition)
For these mi- cro decisions, Cavagnoli has effectively leaned towards a more target-ori- ented approach. Cavagnoli is to be commended for her ability to translate the speech style of the characters in a way that would be interpreted correctly by the target audience not only on a semantic level, but also in a way that would infer the same character representation as that which Fitz- gerald suggests in his creation. The significance of a social divide between the two cities is quite evident due to the way that the charac- ters refer to them, however it is important not to forget about the readers.
When aspects relating not only to key geographical information but also to American culture are mentioned, Cavagnoli provides a footnote for the reader. His writing style is also one that includes many references to colours; yellow, blue, grey, green, white and red are the dominant shades of the novel. Although selecting translatants for colours appears to be rather straightfor- ward, the non-linguistic aspects must also be considered.
