THE COMPLETE WORKS OF

F. SCOTT FITZGERALD

 

 

The Novels

 

 

Fitzgerald’s birthplace - St. Paul, Minnesota

THIS SIDE OF PARADISE

 

 

Fitzgerald’s first novel was published in 1920, taking its title from the Rupert Brooke poem
Tiare Tahiti
.  The novel examines the society issues facing American youths in the aftermath of World War I.  The protagonist Amory Blaine is a Princeton student who dabbles in literature. The novel sold out in three days, earning Fitzgerald overnight fame. On March 30, four days after publication and one day after selling out the first printing, Scott wired for Zelda, a young lady with whom he was infatuated and wanted to impress, to come to New York and get married that weekend. Barely a week after publication, Zelda and Scott married in New York on April 3, 1920.  The novel went through 12 printings in 1920 and 1921, for a total of 49,075 copies.

BOOK ONE — The Romantic Egotist

 

 

CHAPTER 1. Amory, Son of Beatrice

 

Amory Blaine inherited from his mother every trait, except the stray inexpressible few, that made him worth while. His father, an ineffectual, inarticulate man with a taste for Byron and a habit of drowsing over the Encyclopedia Britannica, grew wealthy at thirty through the death of two elder brothers, successful Chicago brokers, and in the first flush of feeling that the world was his, went to Bar Harbor and met Beatrice O’Hara. In consequence, Stephen Blaine handed down to posterity his height of just under six feet and his tendency to waver at crucial moments, these two abstractions appearing in his son Amory. For many years he hovered in the background of his family’s life, an unassertive figure with a face half-obliterated by lifeless, silky hair, continually occupied in “taking care” of his wife, continually harassed by the idea that he didn’t and couldn’t understand her.
