Overview

This title, originally published in 1988, examines F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Catholic roots and his repudiation of those roots in pursuit of the American dream. The study aims to suggest that an investigation of Fitzgerald’s basic cultural and religious milieu might illuminate what he wrote, and may also illuminate the situation of Catholicism in America at the time. This title will be of interest to students of both literature and religious studies.
