    Zelda required more care than Scott could give, and so he worked hard to keep her comfortably hospitalized in fact, many of the couple's later debts resulted from Zelda's institutionalization. Stories of their drinking, dancing, and extravagant lifestyle surround the couple. They are greedy, lustful, vengeful, and, as some critics would argue, immoral. There, he met Father Sigourney Fay, who noticed his incipient talent with the written word and encouraged him to pursue his literary ambitions. Rather, he spent much of that time at boarding school, at Princeton University, in the army, and in New York City.

    When the former lovers meet, their reunion is slightly nervous, but shortly, the two are once again comfortable with each other, leaving Nick to feel an outsider in the warmth the two people radiate. Fitzgerald was instead buried at Rockville Union Cemetery. Although Tender is the Night was a commercial failure and was initially poorly received due to its chronologically jumbled structure, it has since gained in reputation and is now considered among the great American novels. Cody would become Gatsby's mentor, taking him on in "a vague personal capacity" for five years as he went three times around the Continent.

    They rush back to Long Island, where Nick learns from Gatsby that Daisy was driving the car when it struck Myrtle, but that Gatsby intends to take the blame. Although Fitzgerald's passion lay in writing novels, only his first novel sold well enough to support the opulent lifestyle that he and Zelda adopted as New York celebrities. Critics who had waited nine years for the followup to The Great Gatsby had mixed opinions about the novel. Gatsby, the idealistic dreamer, firmly believes the past can be recaptured in its entirety. One of these, "Winter Dreams", he later described as "a sort of first draft of the Gatsby idea". The year-old Scott met and fell in love with then year-old debutante Zelda Sayre.

F. Scott Fitzgeralds the Great Gatsby book

The Fitzgeralds' lifestyle was expensive and frequently, short stories brought in much needed money. By the time of Cody's death, Gatsby had grown into manhood and had defined the man he would become.

Over the course of his career, Fitzgerald wrote four complete novels, while a fifth, partially completed at the time of his death, was published posthumously. The Fitzgeralds lived in Minnesota on and off during Scott's youth. Nick invites Daisy to have tea at his house, without telling her that Gatsby will also be there.

They resumed their engagement and were married at St. Drinking was also a factor in the Fitzgeralds' frequent fights. Before leaving, he sees Tom Buchanan one last time. However, the book and its popularity have only expanded in the following years.

Some have said that the writer's hemorrhage was caused by bleeding from esophageal varices. His father, Edward, brought breeding, charm, and a sense of elegance to the family, although as a businessman, he experienced only marginal financial success.

One week later, he married the woman he loved and his muse, Zelda Sayre. The starlet became a temporary muse for the author and he rewrote Rosemary Hoyt, one of the central characters in Tender is the Night—who had been a male in earlier drafts—to closely mirror her.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's Inspiration for 'The Great Gatsby'

Although Scott would call St. Nick, disgusted by the carelessness and cruel nature of Tom, Daisy, and those like them, leaves Tom, proud of his own integrity. Nick is unlike the other inhabitants of West Egg—he was educated at Yale and has social connections in East Egg, a fashionable area of Long Island home to the established upper class.

Zelda, youngest daughter of an Alabama Supreme Court judge, refused marriage, however, until Scott could support her in the manner to which she was accustomed. The book was originally published in English US language and was later translated into several other languages in the following years as well.

Tom, though, understands Daisy far better than Gatsby does and knows she won't leave him: His wealth and power, matured through generations of privilege, will triumph over Gatsby's newly found wealth.

During the years at Newman, Fitzgerald published three stories in the school literary magazine, helping him to realize that despite his interest in athletics, he was more successful in literary endeavors. He worked for the Barron Collier advertising agency, living in a single room at Claremont Avenue in the Morningside Heights neighborhood on Manhattan's west side.

When Wilson came to his house, he told Wilson that Gatsby owned the car that killed Myrtle. Tom asserts that he and Daisy have a history that Gatsby could never understand, and he announces to his wife that Gatsby is a criminal—his fortune comes from bootlegging alcohol and other illegal activities.May 17,  · With an Introduction and Notes by Guy Reynolds, University of Kent at Canterbury, this book is generally considered to be F Scott Fitzgerald's finest novel.
