This Side of Paradise

Производитель: "OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS"

Серия: "s Classics"

This Side of Paradise tells the story of Amory Blaine as he grows from pampered childhood to young adulthood, and learns to know himself better. At Princeton he becomes a literary aesthete and makes friends with other aspiring writers. As he moves out into the world and tries to find his true direction he falls in love with a succession of beautiful young women. Youthful exuberance and immaturity give way to disillusion and disappointment as Amory confronts the realities of life. A thinly disguised account of Fitzgerald`s own Princeton years, the novel`s frank description of Amory`s love affairs shocked and delighted its first readers, and the book was an immediate success. Brilliant and original in style and structure, it was a spectacular launching for Fitzgerald`s career, and instantly stamped him as the bard of the Jazz Age.
