Excerpt: "To Ernest Hemingway: Dear Ernest, Your stories were great (in April Scribners). But like me you must beware Conrad rhythms in direct quotation from characters, especially if you're pointing a single phrase and making a man live by it 'In the fall the war was always there but we did not go to it any more' is one of the most beautiful prose sentences I've ever read. So much has happened to me lately that I despair of ever assimilating it - or forgetting it, which is the same thing. I hate to think of your being hard up. Please use this if it would help. The Atlantic will pay about $200.00, I suppose. I'll get in touch with Perkins about it…" Table of Contents: To Zelda Fitzgerald To Ernest Hemingway To Frances Scott Fitzgerald To Maxwell Perkins To John Peale Bishop To Mrs Bayard Turnbull To Christian Gauss To Harold Ober To Mrs Richard Taylor To Edmund Wilson To Gerald and Sara Murphy Other Letters

Über den Autor

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940) is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. His works provide an insightful chronicle of the Jazz Age—a term he coined—and are characterized by their evocative depiction of the era's excesses and their critical examination of the American Dream. Fitzgerald's masterful command of language and emotive storytelling are hallmarks of his enduring literary style. Most famous for his novel 'The Great Gatsby,' Fitzgerald's oeuvre includes other notable works such as 'Tender Is the Night' and 'This Side of Paradise.' His stories often explore themes of youth, beauty, and the corrupting influence of wealth, all wrapped in a poignant lyrical prose that captures the spirit of the times. Fitzgerald's personal life, marred by alcoholism and financial difficulties, mirrored the tragic downfall of many of his characters. The compilation 'The Letters of F. Scott Fitzgerald' provides an intimate look at the author's life and thought processes through his correspondence with friends, family, and professional associates, offering readers a deeper understanding of the man behind the typewriter. His work continues to be celebrated for its artistic significance and its reflection on the American societal landscape of the early 20th century.
