By 1945 the opinion that "Gatsby" was merely a period piece had almost entirely disappeared. In that year New Directions published Edmund Wilson's edition of "The Crack-UP," and a new edition of "Gatsby," with an introduction by Lionel Trilling which quietly asserted that "Fitzgerald is now beginning to take his place in our literary tradition." In that year, too, "Gatsby" was reprinted in The Viking Portable Fitzgerald. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 21-06-5
