F. SCOTT FITZGERALD THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Alan Margolies 'The victor belongs to the spoils.' Scott Fitzgerald's second novel, The Beautiful and Damned (1922), is a savage and haunting satire of of the young, rootless post-war generation who live intent only on the pursuit of wealth and decadent pleasure. Anthony Patch's marriage to the beautiful but selfish Gloria is idyllic at first but the union slowly disintegrates as reality sets in and their goal becomes Adam Patch's fortune. Gloria's beauty fades, and Anthony's drinking takes its toll. Charting the corrosive attraction of wealth and its malign influence, The Beautiful and Damned is also a vivid portrait of early twentieth-century New York and the sights and sounds of the city's burgeoning night life. * INTRODUCTION * TEXTUAL NOTE * BIBLIOGRAPHY * CHRONOLOGY * EXPLANATORY NOTES.
