Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1921, Shadowland magazine, artist Gordon Bryant

Well, three months before I was born, my mother lost
her other two children … I think I started then to be a writer.

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.”

This day school, presented by Dr. Creina Mansfield and Dr. Martin R. Jervis, examines the works, times and tragically short life of Scott Fitzgerald.
