Student's Guide to F. Scott Fitzgeraldby Eva Weisbrod
F. Scott Fitzgerald, chronicler of the "Jazz Age," is one of the finest writers in the history of American literature. As both a leading participant and an observer of the times he described, he captured the spirit of an era perhaps as no other writer, before or since, ever has. Today, Fitzgerald's novels, stories, and essays are nearly all recognized as American classics. His novel The Great Gatsby is often described as the "Great American Novel."
In this Student's Guide to F. Scott Fitzgerald, the career of this literary giant is examined, offering accessible insight for young readers. Each work is placed in historical and biographical context, with special emphasis on Fitzgerald's curriculum-related works such as The Great Gatsby, Tender Is the Night, and The Beautiful and Damned, along with several of his short stories and other works.
