Remembering Prof. Emerita Ruth Prigozy
One of the World’s Leading Experts on F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Hofstra community is saddened by the passing of Professor Emerita of English Ruth Prigozy. During her 41 years at Hofstra, Dr. Prigozy became one of the world’s leading experts on the life and work of F. Scott Fitzgerald and a scholar of popular literature and film. She directed or co-directed seven major Hofstra Cultural Center conferences – a record among the Hofstra faculty. Read the Newsday obituary
In a 2012 interview with Hofstra Magazine, Dr. Prigozy stressed the enduring qualities in Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby that have made it an American classic: “One of the most powerful elements of the book is that it’s so reflective of our society – the American dream, the struggle for success. The whole idea of looking for success and feeling that, as Americans, it’s out there for us. … It is very interesting to me how so much of our history is reflected in The Great Gatsby and in Fitzgerald’s own story. Their popularity recurs as we [Americans] have more problems and economic struggles.”
