The project of this research presents a proposal of compared study between the pieces "Trimalchio's Feast" (one of the most fully preserved episodes of Petronius's Satyricon) and Trimalchio (unpublished version in Brazil of The Great Gatsby, most famous piece written by F. Scott Fitzgerald). This project will pursue to investigate the resemblances and differences between Trimalchio and "Trimalchio's Feast", also investigating the classic literature reception by the ones in English language and the history context in which both narratives are inserted.
