Zelda, an illustrated life : the private world of Zelda Fitzgerald by Zelda Fitzgerald( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to tracing Zelda Fitzgerald's personal history, this is the first book to focus extensively on her creative achievement, her painting in particular, on which she concentrated in the last fourteen years of her life. Although many of her works were lost and others were burned after her death by a jealous sister, Zelda's daughter, Scottie, saved more than 100. That legacy forms the basis of this book, which reproduces 80 of her best paintings. They range over a variety of themes: figures, landscapes, cityscapes, flower still lifes, and biblical tableaux. In addition, there are vivid fairy-tale paintings made for Scottie, and a group of intricate and beautiful paper-doll constructions created for her grandson late in her life. Also dating from that last decade, before her tragic death at the age of forty-eight in a hospital fire in North Carolina, is a group of fanciful cityscapes that portray her travels with Scott twenty years earlier

The great Gatsby : midnight in Manhattan( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary was produced to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the publication of The Great Gatsby on April 10th, 1925. "Midnight in Manhattan" explores the dark, turbulent life and creative spirit of "Gatsby"'s writer, F. Scott Fitzgerald. It covers his college days at Princeton where he wrote rather than doing coursework and ended up as a dropout. His unsucessful marriage to Zelda Sayre who eventually was diagnosed with schizophrenia and committed to multiple hospitals is also addressed. The documentary explores the difficult friendship between Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, which was strained by the mutual dislike between Hemingway and Zelda as well as Hemingway's disgust with how Fitzgerald often changed and twisted his stories to sell to magazines for cash. His final days were effected by this need for cash. He remained married to Zelda despite her residence mental hospitals, and he was often trying to earn money for her medical bills and to support his alcholism which had grown worse and made him increasingly more ill. This exposure of the desperate nature of his last years, living with his mistress and suffering multiple heart attacks, dispels the mythology created by Fitzgerald which glamorized the Jazz-Age and his alcoholism. The program includes contributions by the author's granddaughter Eleanor Lanahan, and writers Hunter S. Thompson, George Plimpton and Jay McInerney. It presents a fascinating portrait of this most enduring and complex of American icons

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guests talked about the life, works and legacy of author F. Scott Fitzgerald in an effort to learn about the Jazz Age and "the Roaring Twenties." "The Jazz Age," which F. Scott Fitzgerald coined, or the "roaring 20's" as it came to be known, was a period of decadence, youth, and rebellion in a post-World War I era. It was during this time that Fitzgerald and a large group of young writers came to the forefront: Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, John Dos Passos, Henry Miller and numerous others. Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda traveled throughout Europe, as members of the "self-exiled expatriates" looking for artistic inspiration, intellectual growth, and a good time. Fitzgerald became a major voice for his generation. His works, including The Great Gatsby, offer an insider's look into the leisure class. He vividly brought social issues like class status, as well as an abandonment of more traditional values to the general public
