E–Libro [The Beautiful and Damned] Autore F. Scott Fitzgerald

Expensive suit The whole xperience was plush sensuous and dazzling Although I didn t think the story here was that great his writing at least felt less floppy and tightly focused not too far off Gatsby standard Written during the golden age of jazz his second novel looks at the rise and fall of young couple Anthony Patch and Gloria Gilbert through their first meeting courtship and marriage Like with all Fitzgerald s characters they are complex when it comes to relationships and draws comparisons to the problems of himself and wife Zelda At The Core At the core it s story along with the couple is money and the problems of overspending or living with the couple is money and the problems of overspending or living ones means Antony Gloria live the high life spending well at very opportunity but ventually realizing their funds are dwindling This is where Antony s One Ticket To Texas ever so rich grandfather comes into play he hopes to get his hands on a large fortune as Inheritance but to his dismay is not written into the will the couple start to feel the strain With their bank balances andach otherIt is a novel not of disillusion but of decay What happens to the kind of people that Anthony and Gloria are has happened to the same kind of people over and over again In our foolish optimism our pride and certainty in progress we like to forget that disintegration is a competing and often victorious force And so when we see signs of something uncommonly like it in the young generation we think it has never happened before the setting changes of course but since Fitzgerald has described our modern setting with its prohibition parties socialites and promiscuous kissing in such magnanimous detail we are apt to think that because the scenery is startling the scenario is a new oneAnthony Patch is built up in pages which while blazing with clever irony do not give us a picture of him in three dimensions Later we find him using that mixture of standing aside and telling us what he says and does and acting as his intimate psychological confidant which often betrays Within rather large limits Anthony is clear but clear as a type rather than a person The most telling accounts of him while real could also seem real of other persons uite different from him in other ways Gloria admirably sharp and witty at first deliuesces and loses her personality as Fitzgerald grows intimate with her until toward the Helpmate end we find her speaking very little as problems start to mount She too broadens into a person with too many characteristics which other characters could share with her and still be differential The treatment of the two of them leaves the curious impression that Fitzgerald was at first inside Anthony s head before graduallyxchanging positions Also minor characters written about actually felt sharper than that of Antony and Gloria Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy even though in the novel they are limited to scenes here and there There is the very small allowance for tenderness and proper love here andven less of pity contained within there is a lot of hatred and boiled over arguments that I guess goes with the territory It s lively with pigrams so many that one half suspects that their origin is less in a perpetually ironic state of mind than in a facility and joy in turning them out He did get the fine line of using nough Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader energy and weariness spot on in all the right places and I really liked the last 30 or so pages but the couple I seemed to love one minute and semi despised the next Had they lived in the 21st century they would have racked up huge debts on twenty credit cards whilst both having about five on line affairs apiece Well written with some great moments but over all it just lacked that somethingxtra355 minus the tip.

There is no doubt that F Scott Fitzgerald can handle language He writes in such a delicious manner that he can keep you going for a long time on that alone no substance reuired That isxactly what he does for the first half of The Beautiful and the Damned I fully admit that I became weary of this novel by the halfway point then in that manner that is also so very Fitzgerald he began to focus the story and I was lured to go forward to the Crisis and Continuity at the Abbasid Court: Formal and Informal Politics in the Caliphate of Al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) endIf any author can invent characters that are unappealing in themselves Fitzgerald is the guy I found absolutely nothing redeeming inither Anthony Patch or his wife Gloria The two of them are pretty much the Silvers Edge epitome of spoiled selfish wasteful lives people who contribute nothing and suck upverything around them If we are meant at any point to feel sorry for them it was a miss for me We watch them deteriorate from a point that might have seemed itself to be rock bottom Gloria is a woman who depends 100% on her looks her beauty to carry her through life Anthony is a man who feels no need to accomplish anything in life because he believes he is going to inherit millions from his grandfather As a result they live lives devoid of any meaning or purpose Gloria is too selfish to want children Anthony is too self centered to stoop to work You can t help thinking that society and their families have set these two up for failure and failure in a worse form than mere financial failure I read this too uickly on the heels of Tender is the Night I have Fitzgerald burnout I m glad he wrote Gatsby otherwise I think I would not be able to regard him as a great writer but only a sufficient one I always hate closing a book and saying to myself glad that is behind me always hate closing a book and saying to myself glad that is behind me book was heavy I read it in a couple days but it s so motionally and mentally exhausting it was just painful most of the it was just painful most of the Fitzgerald almost viciously pulls the rug out any time there s a slight chance of things getting better for Gloria and Anthony who rather than confronting their flaws and getting their shit together seem to alternate between wallowing and reveling in their self destructive boredom and self pity It s a study in absolute misery It reminded me than a little of Dickens Bleak House watching study in absolute misery It reminded me than a little of Dickens Bleak House watching and Ada s downward spiral as the lawsuit ats up any ambition or practicality they Going Berserk ever had Unlike Richard and Ada however Gloria and Anthony aren t pa I know I said I wouldn t bother writing a review for this piece of trash but I couldn t resist to compile some of Scottie s greatest hits just to give context for my dislike of this novel Some of the lovely descriptions from men about our main protagonist Gloria Gloria s darn nice not a brain in her head A sense of responsibility would spoil her She s too pretty She s so utterly stupid Remarkable that a person Gloria can comprehend so little and yet live in such a complex civilization A woman like that Gloria about herself brace yourself since the internalized misogyny is real with that one I value my body because you her husband Anthony think it s beautiful And this body of mine of yours to have it grow ugly and shapeless It s simply intolerable BITCH WHAT Women soilasily she said far asily than men Some of the lovely descriptions about other women in the novelShe had no sense of humour but to take its place a happy disposition that made her laugh at the proper times when she was with men Her bosom is still a pavement that she offers to the hoofs of many passing stallions hoping that their iron shoes may strike ven a spark of romance in the darkness This is honestly one of my favorites like what kind of crack was Fitzgerald smokingScottie al.

,
So had a wilde sense of healthy relationshipsThen Anthony knew what
he wanted to 
wanted to his will against this cool and impervious girl to obtain with one magnificent ffort a mastery that seemed infinitely desirable Hit me she implored him wildly stupidly Oh hit me and I ll kiss The Hand You Hit Me hand you hit me the fuck outta hereDon t get me wrong I m aware that Fitzgerald knew that he was writing about fucked up relationships However he constantly propagates the notion that Gloria and later Dot want Anthony to seize the power and control their bodies and actionsThe motional manipulation is also uite real with these two After Anthony hits his wife at a train station classy I know this happensYet in the morning coming arly into her room he knelt down by her bed and cried like a little boy as though it was his heart that had been brokenAnthony is also the one cheating in the relationship However when he suspects that Gloria cheated on him as well which she didn t he gets super aggressive and accusatory and makes her feel like a whore for pleasing men tc It was truly sickening to read In general Fitzgerald portrayed the women in his story as the properties of men rather feeding than uestioning that fucked up trope Oh and at one point suicide is used as a form of blackmail and Anthony says some pretty anti semitic things I won t Apocalyptic Cartography: Thematic Maps and the End of the World in a Fifteenth-Century Manuscript even begin to fully cover the blatant racism in this novel It made my skin crawl The skin colour of a character was only mentioned to showcase that POC were subservient to whites Wencounter a coloured doorman a glib Martiniue Negro with an incongruous British accent and a tendency to be surly whom Anthony detested and sidewalks peopled by an intermittent procession of ragged shuffling subservient Negroes None of these characters are given a voice speech part in the book Dot considered working for the Red CrossTrouble was she had heard that she might have to bathe Negroes in alcohol and after that she hadn t felt so patriotic I hope you burn in hellAnd when she and Anthony went out to dance they saw a tragic Negro made yearning aching music on a saxophone until the garish hall became an nchanted jungle of barbaric rhythms Barbaric rhythms Dude was playing the saxophone so can ya ll chill In conclusion the book is way too fucking long and needed some serious diting Its Infamous exploration of themes is hella messy and the story isn t coherent at all Thending was such a clusterfuck and made me want to throw the book across the room I have nothing against narratives featuring unlikeable characters heck I usually find them fascinating but you somehow have to make me care The Beautiful and Damned is painfully unnecessary Nothing happens Walled except rich kids whining about the hardships of life Sorry can t relate There s nothing left to sayxcept BITCH THE DOOR Also where is my award for finishing this piece of trash I can t think of any writer other F Scott Fitzgerald that has had such of a yo yo ffect on me I thought Gatsby was the real deal This Side of Paradise I gave up on some of his short stories left a big impression on me whereas Tender Is the Night felt like a bit of a mess I put this down to his personal life which wasn t xactly plain sailing The Beautiful and Damned sits comfortably in between this lot lounged in the Ritz carlton to be precise With a cigarette in one hand and a cocktail glass in the other not worrying about the tab at least for nowRegardless of how I perceived much of his work one thing about him does stands out he WAS the voice of a generation My first xperience with Fitzgerald was something completely new like tasting champagne for the first time or putting on an. Ziosi che sanno già tutto la caduta dal sogno in una realtà prosaica Belli dannati è un romanzo dolceamaro ferocemente critico nei confronti dei nuovi ricchi della società americana ma fresco poetico indulgente con i suoi roi«Se tu mi odiassi se fossi coperto di piaghe come un lebbroso se tu scappassi con un’altra donna o mi picchiassi o mi facessi patire la fame come suona assurdo tutto ciò io lo stesso avrei voglia di te bisogno di te lo stesso ti amerei»Francis Scott Fitzgerald nacue a St. The Beautiful and Damned
