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."

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... ›

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.

I read "Gatsby" and was awed by Fitzgerald's ability to both describe the 1920's and to draw his readers into that postwar period. His characters felt real to me. So, I couldn't wait to read Tender is the Night. "Tender" seems to reveal more about Fitzgerald personal pain than anything else. His novel elaborately blames Nicole for Dick's emotional decay. To me, this story line just doesn't bear close scrutiny. Dick's behavior is controlling,habitually deceitful and at times misogynistic. Time after time Dick control's Nicole's actions and refuses to allow her to even discuss her viewpoint. Nicole's behavior is unbalanced but is it schizophrenic?
It's very revealing that a 28 year old man would fall in love with a 16 year old girl. Later, when Nicole has grown up a bit, Dick falls in and out of love with Rosemary, a very child-like 18 year old.
Granted, women's rights were along way off in 1925 the year Fitzgerald began writing Tender is the Night, but Dick seems more in charge of Nicole's life than seems warranted by either the prevailing culture or by Nicole's illness.
I'd say that Fitzgerald unconsciously revealed his own role in his decaying marriage and like most folks tried to point the finger elsewhere.

Von HansBlog am 5. September 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
Das US-amerikanische Ehepaar Dick und Nicole Diver lebt in den 1920ern ohne Geldsorgen in Südfrankreich und Zürich. F. Scott Fitzgerald verarbeitet hier wie fast immer sein eigenes Leben und das seiner Frau, also geht es auch um Nervenkrankheit, scheiternde Träume und Alkoholismus - Fitzgeralds entsprechender Lebensabschnitt heißt in der Bruccoli-Biografie "A Drunkard's Holiday, 1925 - 1931". Diese Themen erscheinen im Roman jedoch wenig aufdringlich und undramatisch.

Heterogen:

F. Scott Fitzgerald schreibt mit federleichtem, flüchtigem Ton, erzählt allerdings nicht immer konsistent: Szenen und Konstellationen wechseln unversehens, Menschen beschreibt er mit widersprechenden Adjektiven in einem Satz. Fitzgerald arbeitete neun Jahre an dem Roman, den er aus verschiedenen Fragmenten zusammensetzte und immer wieder umbaute – dabei wechselte er nicht nur mehrfach zwischen US-Ostküste, Hollywood und Europa, sondern lernte auch wesentliche neue Zeitgenossen kennen und musste seine Frau im Sanatorium unterbringen. Zudem plagten ihn Geldsorgen und Trunksucht, zum Geldverdienen schrieb er viele sehr gut bezahlte Kurzgeschichten.

Der Zusammenhalt des Romans litt unter dieser unübersichtlichen Entstehung, speziell im Vergleich zum wunderbar homogenen großen Gatsby, dem gefeierten Vorgänger-Werk. Die heute übliche, eher chronologische Romanstruktur von Zärtlich ist die Nacht stammt nicht einmal von Fitzgerald selbst, sondern wurde erst von einem Freund eingerichtet, der die Romanteile nach Fitzgeralds Angaben neu ordnete. (Aktuelle deutsche Fassungen geben offenbar die erste, weniger chronologische Romanstruktur wieder.
