Beneath the shimmering surface of his life he is hiding a secret: a silent longing that can never be fulfilled. And soon this destructive obsession will force his world to unravel.Contains explanatory notes and an introduction written by Tony Tanner.

    Generally considered to be F. Scott Fitzgerald's finest novel, The Great Gatsby is a consummate summary of the "e;roaring twenties"e;, and a devastating expose of the "e;Jazz Age"e;. Through the narration of Nick Carraway, the reader is taken into the superficially glittering world of the mansions which lined the Long Island shore in the 1920s, to encounter Nick's cousin Daisy, her brash but wealthy husband Tom Buchanan, Jay Gatsby and the mystery that surrounds him.

    'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' sees a baby born in 1860 begin life as an old man and then age backwards. F. Scott Fitzgerald hinted at this kind of inversion when he called his era 'a generation grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken'. Perhaps nowhere in American fiction has this 'Lost Generation' been more vividly preserved than in Fitzgerald's short fiction. Spanning the early twentieth-century American landscape, this collection captures, with Fitzgerald's signature blend of enchantment and disillusionment, America during the Jazz Age.

    Between the First World War and the Wall Street Crash the French Riviera was the stylish place for wealthy Americans to visit. Among the most fashionable are the Divers, Dick and Nicole who hold court at their villa. Into their circle comes Rosemary Hoyt, a film star, who is instantly attracted to them, but understands little of the dark secrets and hidden corruption that hold them together. As Dick draws closer to Rosemary, he fractures the delicate structure of his marriage and sets both Nicole and himself on to a dangerous path where only the strongest can survive. In this exquisite, lyrical novel, Fitzgerald has poured much of the essence of his own life; he has also depicted the age of materialism, shattered idealism and broken dreams.

    Ny oversættelse af den berømte klassiker. Med Blid er natten genindtog Fitzgerald sin plads blandt tidens førende amerikanske romanforfattere. Han overgik Den store Gatsby med en bog, der afveg fra alle normer, der hidtil havde eksisteret i romanlitteraturen.De vigtigste personer i Blid er natten er:Dick Diver, en ung, ambitiøs psykiater, der ikke er bange for at eksperimentere. Han er utrolig karismatisk og nærmest magnetisk, men gemmer et tragisk mørke bag facaden. En slags 30’ernes Don Draper …Nicole Diver er den rige Devereux Warrens smukke datter. Devereux blev lidt for tidligt alene med datteren. Det lider hun under som ung, og bliver indlagt med tvangstanker på et schweizisk hospital, hvor Dick diagnosticerer hende som skizofren. Hun kommer sig dog. De forelsker sig, gifter sig og stifter familie. De tager på rejser til sydfrankrig og virker som det perfekte par. Men de har hver især startet en afdækning af hinandens indre. Nicole fortsætter med at blive stærkere og mere uafhængig i deres ægteskab.Rosemary Hoyt er en meget ung filmstjerne. Hun havde sit gennembrud i Daddy’s Girl og rejser med sin mor, der også er hendes manager. Også de rejser til Rivieraen, hvor hun møder det helt fantastiske Diver-par – og forelsker sig dødeligt i Dick.Dette er Fitzgeralds litterære højdepunkt, men også et værk, der er blevet til gennem ulidelig smerte. Handlingen er delvist selvbiografisk, da hans kone, Zelda, blev indlagt med skizofreni på et psykiatrisk hospital, han personligt gik konkurs og endelig lod sin alkoholisme bryde ud i lys lue under skrivningen. Læser man bogen, giver det perfekt mening, at den er opkaldt efter en strofe i Keats’ digt om øjeblikkets forgængelighed, Ode to a Nightingale:Aleready with thee! Tender is the night,And haply the Queen -Moon is on her throne,Cluster’d around by all her starry Fays;But here there is no light

    From Collins Classics and the author of 'The Great Gatsby' a marriage unravels in this autobiographical tale.'Sometimes it is harder to deprive oneself of a pain than of a pleasure.'Set on the French Riviera in the 1920s, American Dick Diver and his wife Nicole are the epitome of chic, living a glamorous lifestyle and entertaining friends at their villa. Young film star Rosemary Hoyt arrives in France and becomes entranced by the couple. It is not long before she is attracted to the enigmatic Dick, but he and his wife hold dark secrets and as their marriage becomes more fractured, Fitzgerald laments the failure of idealism and the carefully constructed trappings of high society in the Roaring Twenties.

    With an Introduction and Notes by Henry Claridge, Senior Lecturer, School of English, University of Kent at Canterbury.Tender is the Night is a story set in the hedonistic high society of Europe during the 'Roaring Twenties'. A wealthy schizophrenic, Nicole Warren, falls in love with Dick Diver - her psychiatrist. The resulting saga of the Divers' troubled marriage, and their circle of friends, includes a cast of aristocratic and beautiful people, unhappy love affairs, a duel, incest, and the problems inherent in the possession of great wealth. Despite cataloguing a maelstrom of interpersonal conflict, Tender is the Night has a poignancy and warmth that springs from the quality of Fitzgerald's writing and the tragic personal experiences on which the novel is based.Six years separate Tender is the Night and The Last Tycoon, the novel Fitzgerald left unfinished at his death in December 1940. Fitzgerald lived in Hollywood more or less continuously from July 1937 until his death, and a novel about the film industry at the height of 'the studio system' centred on the working life of a top producer was begun in 1939. Even in its incomplete state The Last Tycoon remains the greatest American novel about Hollywood and contains some of Fitzgerald's most brilliant writing.

    Den store Gatsby af F. Scott Fitzgerald regnes for en klassiker i amerikansk litteratur. Gennem karakteren Nick Carraway får vi et indblik i jazztidens USA, hvor rigdom og den ekstravagante livsstil bliver udstillet. Nick bliver tilfældigvis nabo til Jay Gatsby, en yderst rig mand, der hver uge afholder enorme fester for kendte mennesker i sit palæ, og således udadtil ser ud til at udleve den amerikanske drøm. Men tilsyneladende er der ingen, som rigtig kender denne Gatsby. Det viser sig, at Gatsby blev forelsket før han rejste til Europa for at kæmpe i 1. Verdenskrig, men da han omsider vender hjem har hans udkårne giftet sig med en anden, meget velhavende mand. Han vier derfor sit liv til at opnå tilstrækkelig rigdom til, at han kan vinde sin elskede tilbage – og han benytter alle midler. Men da hun omsider igen kommer ind i hans liv, bliver det meget kortvarigt og yderst dramatisk.F. Scott Fitzgerald portrætterer i Den store Gatsby jazztidens USA, og den amerikanske drøm, hvor jagten på rigdom og overflod for en periode overskygger alt andet. Den store Gatsby fremstår som et klassisk værk i amerikansk litteratur.God fornøjelse.
