Winter dreams F. Scott Fitzgerald( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

F. Scott Fitzgerald's story is the classic tale of a boy from the provinces whose talents bring him fame and fortune-temporarily. Scott and Zelda's personalities, backgrounds, and relationships with others formed one myth of the Jazz Age, while the legend of his romantic life made him an American mythic artist hero. Fitzgerald's life has long held a fascination not precisely tied to his literary standing; now, as in his lifetime, he appears as both a serious writer and a notable American figure identified with his fiction. For it is to fiction--filled with the myths of youth, beauty, and destroying time, of searching and striving, of conflict between forces of good and evil--that Fitzgerald has made his own distinguished contribution
