F.Scott Fitzgerald Encyclopedia free pdf F. Scott Fitzgerald is perhaps one of the most challenging authors of American literature. Known primarily as the author of "The Great Gatsby" (1925) and some short fiction, he actually wrote several novels, 178 stories and a number of plays, film scenarios and essays. This reference book includes hundreds of alphabetically arranged entries for Fitzgerald's works, characters, family members, friends and acquaintances. The volume begins with a chronology that traces Fitzgerald's rise from obscurity with the publication of "This Side of Paradise" (1920), his studio work and travels, and his lapse into alcoholism and financial ruin. The entries that follow present the essential action in his novels, short stories, plays and narrative poems- identify all named fictional characters and comment on their significance- and provide brief biographical sketches for persons who figured prominently in his life and career. Many of the entries provide bibliographical information, and the volume closes with a bibliography of the most important general works on Fitzgerald and his works. A thorough index and extensive cross references direct the reader to the copious information in this essential reference book.
