READ & DOWNLOAD Ë LABMEDNEWS.XYZ ß F. Scott Fitzgerald F. Scott Fitzgerald ß 1 CHARACTERS READ Flappers and Philosophers Er from the early stories of the glittering Jazz Age through the lost hopes of the thirties to the last twilight decade of his life It brings together his most famous stories includ F Scott Fitzgerald s prose is like pizza and sex Even when it s bad it s good Flappers and Philosophers published in 1920 is a collection of mostly forgettable stories that lionize the rich and rarely challenge the reader s world view But that only explains why they re annoying not why they re inferiorThe opening story The Offshore Pirate is inferior because of its jaw dropping sexism Ha ha ha lets manipulate a head strong girl because we men know how what s best for her Fitzgerald is obsessed by head strong girls and nearly every story paints her in vivid colors Fitzgerald is a genius of characterization When he describes a person you see him or her instantly and you start comparing people you know in real life with them The women in these stories are clever but not threatening When a woman does succeed by her wits such as in Head and Shoulders it s by luck and the patronage of besotted men Head and Shoulders is a story that works however because its premise is interesting A philosopher and a flapper fall in love and trade places in the social hierarchy If you can turn a blind eye to the patronizing framework the story is well crafted and filled with wry wit Bernice Bobs Her Hair is as dumb as you would expect Rarely does a title so aptly telegraph a story s weight Fitzgerald lurches into a proto feminism at the end when Bernice enacts revenge and apparently becomes a free agent One suspects that nobody really gave him much credit for that lurch though and he never developed feminist sensibilities further It s as if he wants to make his women characters stronger but he just doesn t know how He s different from Anthony Trollope who while being a far inferior writer on rare occasions let his women characters dance closer to the edge of impropriety The first half of Miss Mackenzie and much of Can You Forgive Her Trollope seems to consciously bar the gate of where women can and can t go whereas Fitzgerald doesn t seem capable of imagining women crossing into a feminist thresholdBut boy does he love to watch them run headlong into the forbidden zone Gloria s epic midnight run in Beautiful and Damned has several antecedents here The Ice Palace and Benediction both feature women who have some sort of psychological breakdown that acts as a sort of epiphany These early attempts suffer from a sense that they just seem too contrived that Fitzgerald is trying stuff out or simply didn t know how else to end the storyI found Benediction the most interesting story because it deals head on with religion I m sorry Gatsby fans but Dr T J Eckleburg is of a dodge than a statement on God and religion Just because you yourself might be vague and uncertain on religion doesn t mean that a vague and uncertain take on religion shows genius In Benediction a flapper visits her brother who is in a seminary Here issues of belief and non belief and the proper role of a Christian are addressed Is it better to lead a monastic life or to live life in the world Hold on is this Fitzgerald or Dostoyevsky What s great about short stories is that it allows readers to discover aspects of authors that are absent in novels Benediction shows that Fitzgerald wasn t ignorant about religion any than Jane Austen was ignorant about Napoleon as evidenced in her uncompleted novel SanditionFitzgerald seems to have been rather ignorant or lazy about business as evidenced by Four Fists A somewhat humorous story about how a guy got hit in the face four times because he was a douchebag at various times in his life is marred by the details of the fourth fist A rancher hits him because he s buying him out and this is badwhy We re supposed to feel sympathy for the rancher but Fitzgerald s sketchy details about the deal make this all but impossible It has the feel of Seinfeld s Art Vandelay ImportExport businessWhile many of the stories have a modern feel or precisely a 1950 s feel there are occasionally jarring references to an earlier time For example in The Cut Glass Bowl spoiler alert a girl has her hand amputated after she gets blood poisoning As Owen Wilson declared in Midnight in Paris These people didn t have antibiotics So is this short story collection worth reading Definitely if you re a Fitzgerald fan You can only read Gatsby so many times To better understand its true genius you need to
