Amazon.de

In the wake of World War I, a community of expatriate American writers established itself in the salons and cafes of 1920s Paris. They congregated at Gertrude Stein's select soirees, drank too much, married none too wisely, and wrote volumes--about the war, about the Jazz Age, and often about each other. F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, were part of this gang of literary Young Turks, and it was while living in France that Fitzgerald began writing Tender Is the Night. Begun in 1925, the novel was not actually published until 1934. By then, Fitzgerald was back in the States and his marriage was on the rocks, destroyed by Zelda's mental illness and alcoholism. Despite the modernist mandate to keep authors and their creations strictly segregated, it's difficult not to look for parallels between Fitzgerald's private life and the lives of his characters, psychiatrist Dick Diver and his former patient turned wife, Nicole. Certainly the hospital in Switzerland where Zelda was committed in 1929 provided the inspiration for the clinic where Diver meets, treats, and then marries the wealthy Nicole Warren. And Fitzgerald drew both the European locale and many of the characters from places and people he knew from abroad.

In the novel, Dick is eventually ruined--professionally, emotionally, and spiritually--by his union with Nicole. Fitzgerald's fate was not quite so novelistically neat: after Zelda was diagnosed as a schizophrenic and committed, Fitzgerald went to work as a Hollywood screenwriter in 1937 to pay her hospital bills. He died three years later--not melodramatically, like poor Jay Gatsby in his swimming pool, but prosaically, while eating a chocolate bar and reading a newspaper. Of all his novels, Tender Is the Night is arguably the one closest to his heart. As he himself wrote, "Gatsby was a tour de force, but this is a confession of faith."

Tender Is the Night is one of the most interesting examples in 20th century fiction of reversing the usual social metaphors. Dr. Dick Diver, a psychiatrist, is examined as a case of mental health. He is also placed in a classic woman's role, that of the desired, amiable beauty sought after by all and sundry. These juxtapositions of the usual social perspectives allow the reader to touch closer to the realities of human need and connection, by piercing our assumptions about what is "right and proper."

The story begins from the perspective of Rosemary Hoyt, an 18-year-old motion picture star, recuperating on the Rivera. One day she goes to the beach and becomes entranced by the Divers, Dick and Nicole, a golden couple with whom she immediately falls in love. Beautiful, young, rich, and looking for adventure, she quickly sets out to capture Dick who is the most wonderful person she has ever met.

Later, the story shifts to Dick's perspective and traces back to the beginnings of his marriage to Nicole. She had formed an accidental attachment to him (a classic psychiatric transference) while residing in a mental hospital. He returned her friendship, and found it impossible to break her heart. They married, and he played the role of at-home psychiatrist tending her schizophrenia. All went well for years, but gradually he became weary of his role. His weariness causes him to re-evaluate his views on life . . . and the psychological profile of Dr. Diver, charming bon vivant, begins.

The tale is a remarkably modern one, even if it was set in the 1920s. Fitzgerald deeply investigates the meanings of love, humanity, and connection.

We meet Dick Diver en route to Dohmler's mental clinic in Zurich, where he used to work as a psychologist and now only visits. The reader learns that Dick and Nicole - the two forthcoming main-characters of the novel - met months before. Nicole Warren, who is a patient in Dohmler's clinic has been writing letters to Dick and both somehow got very fond of eachother. For Dick on one hand Nicole becomes a case study, on the other he falls deeply in love with her. They marry, Nicole gives birth to a girl (Topsy), her state of mind seems to brighten up and they move to the French Riviera. The Divers in fact form the high society of Cannes, always surrounded by their friends: the McKiscos, the Norths and a few other American tourists, by whom Rosemary Speers, a rising young star from Hollywood, and her mother are introduced to Dick an Nicole. From the first moment they meet, Rosemary is completely infatuated with Dick and after some time of resisting the temptation he also falls in love with her. The Norths, the Divers and Rosemary decide to spend a few days in Paris, where Dick feels that the tension between him and Nicole is growing and finally confesses his love to Rosemary. After two people getting murdered right in front of them, the group leaves the city. The Divers go back to the Riviera with the Norths and Rosemary to Italy to shoot a new movie. Due to Dick neglecting her and to all the chaos they had to live through the past weeks, Nicole is getting very unstable again. Dick does not want to take this responsibility anymore and opens a new clinic with a friend in Lausanne. His alibi is to be better able to care for Nicole. But this is also too much for him, so that during a long break from work he travels through Europe. On his voyage he learns of Mr.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Es ist bewegend, wie intensiv und unbarmherzig sich Francis Scott Fitzgerald in diesem Werk mit seinem eigenen Schicksal auseinandersetzt. Das Leben als "expatriate" in Europa, geprägt durch Oberflächlichkeiten und der permanenten Suche nach Vergnügen führt zu einem zwangsläufigen Realitätsverlust. Ganz extrem erlebt dieses F.S. Fitzgerald am Beispiel seiner Frau Zelda, die ab 1930 geisteskrank wird. Vier Jahre später schreibt er nun diese Geschichte, von Dick und Nicole Diver und hält seinem eigenen Leben einen Spiegel vor. "Tender is the Night" ist ein hervorragend erzähltes Werk über die Leichtigkeit des Lebens, die wir doch alle anstreben und die so vielen zum Verhängnis wird. Besonders in der heutigen Zeit des Überflusses der Erlebnisgeneration hat diese Geschichte aus den goldenen 20er Jahren einen hoch aktuellen Bezug.

Von Ein Kunde am 4. November 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was the book written right after the famous of Fitzgerald's writings, The Great Gatsby. Tender Is the Night took him six years to write and it was very close to his heart since some scholars believe that this book represented his down fall after his wife Zelda died. Also, many have stated that this is second best book, but I will say otherwise and call it his best book which he wrote.
This book will seem very boring at the beginning because the main character, Dick Drive will not appear until the end of the second chapter, and will also talk about certain "plots" or other games which are not relevant to the story. Nevertheless, the plot will start to build when Rosemary starts to fall in love with Dick and the point where the story starts to cook with gas is at the Driver's party.
Throughout the book, there are points that will leave you in suspense, and will also get you to motivate you to read more into the story to see what happens. One example is why did Dick marry Nicole. Though the story, their marriage has a facade over it, when they are around a crowd, they act with love and is flawless, yet when they are by themselves, it is a whole different world. They act very unfriendly, the couple do not really talk to each other or get into arguments. The Driver's marriage is not strong, and the weakness will lead up to chaos and the conclusion of the book.
Also, in the book many subplots will make the book even more suspenseful to read. The subplots I believe are what keep you going in this book because it will show that true life is not just one problem (like having an affair) there are many. Some include, what happened in the restroom, why is Mr. North hiding, and the overall one, how did Dick and Nicole get married.
