Kurzbeschreibung

Excerpt from the foreword by P. C. Weber:

Just three years before the publication of his first novel "This Side of Paradise" rendered him an overnight literary sensation, F. Scott Fitzgerald was living the spirited life of an upperclassman at Princeton University. The time he spent there resulted in a treasure trove of short stories, dramas, parodies, and verse that has been largely overlooked within his overall body of work. "The Princeton Collection" represents a concerted attempt to resurrect the finest of these forgotten early pieces and make them available in a digital format for the very first time. Fitzgerald's prodigious talent is clearly obvious in this volume of collegiate writings, where he is already beginning to explore many of the themes and character personas that would distinguish his later work. Here the reader will find all of the familiar musings on the foibles of the wealthy class, the illusory nature of true beauty, and the inevitable failure of romantic idealism, not to mention an assortment of independent-minded young women who serve as prototypes to the Jazz Age flappers that Fitzgerald would later make his own. This compilation also presents a rich snapshot of campus life in the early twentieth century, a time when American involvement in the First World War loomed large, the Roaring Twenties were set to explode, and an entire generation was about to lose its innocence. Seven of these pieces were eventually revised by Fitzgerald for publication in commercial print at a later date, and "The Princeton Collection" also provides the final versions of these works as well as a history of how each evolved.
