F. Scott Fitzgerald Some Sort of Epic Grandeur by Tiziano Brignoli Tiziano Brignoli

Genre: Literary essay / non-fiction

Time Frame: 4 Weeks

When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote to his daughter Scottie, describing his life as "epic grandeur," he did so with the authority that belongs only to people of great and often tragic destiny. He understood how the exuberance, doubts, fears and excesses of his life was perfectly matched within the literary picture he produced, which was as much autobiographical as possible. Tiziano Brignoli, in this literary essay now translated in English, outlines a literary profile of the American writer, symbol of the Jazz Age. Starting from the analysis of his first published novel, he illustrates a Fitzgeraldian portrait that shows the reader the most important aspects that composed his existence, the numerous contrasts of his character, and consequently what build his literature. What drove Fitzgerald to write "This Side of Paradise" and what social value did this book contain at the time? Why did he write "The Great Gatsby" and what makes it the American novel par excellence today? What did "Tender is the Night" means in terms of literary sacrifice by the American author, and what makes it one of his most autobiographical novels? What role did Zelda play as a partner in her husband's life? In the irony of life, the day Fitzgerald's epic grandeur was broken, it was inexorably tied to the American one. It's for this reason that the name of Francis Scott Fitzgerald will always be reproduced side by side with that of his generation, of which he was wonderfully able to tell the needs and torments. An edition with an in-depth afterword by the author, in conversation with Marjie Kirkland, cousin of the great American writer, talking about Fitzgerald's family, books and literature and Jazz Age.
