Overview

As the May Day Riots of 1919 are breaking out, a group of Yale alumni gather for a jazz dance, revealing the disparate backgrounds, existence, and expectations of the American upper and lower classes. The interrelated events of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s story capture both the hysteria and privileged existence of the young and the wealthy in the early days of the Jazz Age.

“May Day” was originally published by F. Scott Fitzgerald in a 1920 issue of the magazine Smart Set. In 1922, it was republished in a collection of Fitzgerald’s stories called Tales of the Jazz Age, which included ten other short stories, including “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
