Great Writers 1: F. Scott Fitzgerald

This is the first in a series about writers I admire and who have given me great pleasure over the years. I begin with F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of "The Great Gatsby", "The Last Tycoon", "The Beautiful and Damned", "Tender is The Night and other works, and who paved the way for J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye with his first novel "This Side of Paradise" and his stories on "Basil", an awkward and introspective adolescent who foreshadows Salinger's Holden Caulfield.

Hemingway vs. Fitzgerald: Admiration, Jealousy, Friendship & Literature (2000)
 
42:55
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works. Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature. Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school, he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home. His wartime experiences formed the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms (1929). In 1921, he married Hadley Richardson, the first of his four wives. The couple moved to Paris, where he worked as a foreign correspondent and fell under the influence of the modernist writers and artists of the 1920s "Lost Generation" expatriate community. He published his first novel, The Sun Also Rises, in 1926. After his 1927 divorce from Hadley Richardson, Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer; they divorced after he returned from the Spanish Civil War where he had been a journalist, and after which he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Martha Gellhorn became his third wife in 1940; they separated when he met Mary Welsh in London during World War II. He was present at the Normandy landings and the liberation of Paris. Shortly after the publication of The Old Man and the Sea (1952), Hemingway went on safari to Africa, where he was almost killed in two successive plane crashes that left him in pain or ill health for much of his remaining life. Hemingway maintained permanent residences in Key West, Florida, (1930s) and Cuba (1940s and 1950s), and in 1959, he bought a house in Ketchum, Idaho, where he committed suicide in the summer of 1961. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hemingway Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American novelist and short story writer, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby (his best known), and Tender Is the Night. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote numerous short stories, many of which treat themes of youth and promise, and age and despair. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F._Scott_Fitzgerald

2 Different Ways to Write a Book: Beach Reads, War & Peace, F. Scott Fitzgerald | Salman Rushdie
 
10:28
Writing is a strange beast. Everyone can do it, but very few can do it well. And those that can do it well often have very little cognizance as to what it is about their process that makes it click — F. Scott Fitzgerald died thinking he was a failure despite writing arguably the greatest book of the 20th century (The Great Gatsby). But author, intellect, and all-around bon vivant Salman Rushdie has a good take on what makes great books work: they capture the moment around the character and incorporate it into the story, which helps drive the story forward. It might not seem to many like a massive change, but Rushdie accurately points out that this is what made Gatsby work so well: the novel's ability to capture the moment of the Jazz Age. It's that ability to write layers into the story that separates the wheat from the chaff. If you'd like to read more of Rushdie's work, his latest work is The Golden House. Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/salman-rushdie-the-difference-between-pulp-fiction-and-lasting-literature Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: First of all I would say that it’s always been the case that there has been two kinds of process, there’s been that instant process where people are trying to make work that has a huge impact at the moment and they don’t give any consideration really to its enduring quality. I think in the world of books there clearly is a sort of a best seller writing, which exists for that quick hit, you know, it exists in order to sell a million copies very quickly and for everybody to read it on the beach that year and then throw it away. I mean that’s a perfectly reasonable way to approach things. But if you do the other thing, which is to hope that people will read your books long after the moment in which they were written then you have to bear in mind certain things that do endure. One of the things... the thing that endures most of all is human nature. Human nature is a great constant; it’s always the same in every country in every time. The reason why we sitting here in the 21st century in America we can watch a play written by the a 16th century English playwright - William Shakespeare - and it still says something to us... is because what those plays understand and have in common with us is an understanding of how human beings work, what it is that motivates us for good or evil. So I think at the center of the business of creating something enduring is to never lose sight of the human figure at the heart of it, never lose sight of the human scale. The moment you become too grand, too kind of wide angle in your portrayal of the world you lose the sense of that individual in the middle of the crowd. So in a way you always have to know where Waldo is and the crowd has to be about him in the end and it’s his presence that orchestrates and gives meaning to the crowd. So that’s one thing I would say that you really need to have as deep an understanding of human nature as your gift permits. Beyond that there are things that have caused work to endure. One of the things is if you are able to capture a moment because one of the things that we do as readers is we read the past through its literature. So if we want to know something deep about Napoleon’s Russian campaign, for example, we read War and Peace, which takes us into the reality of that moment in Russia perhaps as no history book can because it takes us into the human experience of it, the lived experience of it. But I think more recently a book like The Kite Runner would be a book that would do that for the lived reality of Kazakhstan, which is something that people see on the news quite often as a place where explosions happen. But what literature can do is take you into the lived experience of that place that makes it valuable for a long time.

√ Critically Analysing The Great Gatsby | Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald | English

However this was short-lived and gave way to the Stock Market crash of 1929 and the following Great Depression. Prohibition of alcohol occurred in the United States in 1919, and was finally repealed in 1933. Organised crime turns to smuggling and bootlegging of liquor, led by figures such as Al Capone, mafia boss of the Chicago. The Lost Generation was the name Gertrude Stein gave to American writers, poets, and artists living in Europe during the 1920s. Famous members of the Lost Generation include Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, and John Steinbeck. It was a group who works characterised the disillusionment of the age. The Women's suffrage movement continued to make gains as women obtained full voting rights in Finland, New Zealand, Denmark and in the United States in 1920, and women begin to enter the workplace in larger numbers. The term ‘flapper’ referred to a "new breed" of young women who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms. Flappers had their origins in the period of liberalism, social and political turbulence and increased transatlantic cultural exchange that followed the end of the First World War. Values of the Time • Decadence and wealth were very important to the upper classes and often society was so shallow that you had friends while you were wealthy and none when you were poor. True friendship, and even true romantic relationships or other depths of feeling were rare for these emotionally numb times. • Greater independence for women followed after WWI and the rise of the flapper as someone who deliberately went against social niceties regarding a woman’s traditional role led to affairs being the norm, and there were “petting parties” where women would openly make out with men - something which was never done in public in polite society. Such women were often openly contrary, independent and selfish – they didn’t need men unless those men came with fringe benefits such as expensive presents or social contacts. • Prohibition didn’t mean that people couldn’t access alcohol, it just meant they had to go underground to do it. So along with questionable social morality, the upper classes now freely consorted with criminal elements such as the mafia in order to get their booze. In fact, there was probably more drinking during the 1920s because of prohibition. • Aside from all the partying, there was a sense of loss and decay. If one felt the apocalypse was coming and the world was at an end, they might as well get drunk and have a party and try not to care. This attitude sums up the Modernist disillusionment with society and their feeling that life was cheap and meaningless. Literary Style The publication of The Great Gatsby prompted T. S. Eliot to write, in a letter to Fitzgerald, "It seems to me to be the first step that American fiction has taken since Henry James." J. D. Salinger expressed admiration of Fitzgerald's work, even saw himself for some time as "Fitzgerald's successor." F Scott Fitzgerald (1896 –1940) was an American author of novels and short stories, whose works are evocative of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself. He is widely regarded as one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. He finished four novels. Fitzgerald also wrote many short stories that treat themes of youth and promise along with despair and age.   Born in Minnesota to an Irish upper class Catholic family, Fitzgerald attended St. Paul Academy, but was expelled for neglecting his studies. He entered Princeton University in 1913 and wrote for the Princeton Triangle Club—a kind of musical-comedy society. A poor student, Fitzgerald left Princeton to enlist in the US Army during World War I; however, the war ended shortly after Fitzgerald's enlistment. While at Camp Sheridan, Fitzgerald met Zelda Sayre the “silver girl”, in Fitzgerald's words. The two were engaged in 1919, and Fitzgerald moved into an apartment at 1935 Lexington Avenue in New York City to try to lay a foundation for his life with Zelda. Working at an advertising firm and writing short stories, he was unable to convince Zelda that he would be able to support her, leading her to break off the engagement.
