Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald was an American author that is well known as the chronicler (and [[TropeNamers namer]]) of the [[TheRoaringTwenties Jazz Age.]] Throughout his career he wrote five novels and many short stories. He was born 1896 in Minnesota. He [[TheAlcoholic liked to drink]] and party and wrote his novels in order to support that lifestyle for his wife. The materialistic and hedonistic tendencies of his peers are reflected in his works, as is plenty of angst about the appropriateness of all that partying after WWI. While courting his future wife, Zelda, he completed his first novel ''This Side Of Paradise''. The works that followed were a river of short stories, ''The Beautiful And Damned'', ''Literature/TenderIsTheNight'', ''The Love Of The Last Tycoon'', and his most famous work, ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby.'' The critical and commercial popularity of Fitzgerald's work faded during his lifetime, and he finished his career as a script doctor in Hollywood. His critical reputation was revived following his death, with ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'' emerging as a strong contender for the UsefulNotes/GreatAmericanNovel.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: Averted in "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz". The Washington family discovers a mountain made entirely of solid diamond, but cashing in would lower the value of diamonds to next to nothing and leave the family near-broke. (Today, the mountain would not necessarily be rendered worthless, as more diamonds are used for industrial purposes than as jewelry. However, Fitzgerald wrote before this was a common industrial practice.)


Added DiffLines:

* TheBeautifulElite: ''The Beautiful and Damned'' starts out with this in play until the main couple's awful life choices start catching up with them.


Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyHatesMathematics: Amory Blaine, the protagonist of ''This Side of Paradise'', dislikes math and science, and prefers studying literature and history. His mentor Thayer Darcy is similarly not a fan of math.
* ForgotICouldntSwim: The protagonist of "The Swimmers" forgot that he couldn't swim and tried to save a drowning girl. Later it played a mayor part in his CharacterDevelopment.
-->''"This is the man who didn't know whether he could swim, because he'd never tried."''

Added DiffLines:
