Abstract:

F. Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise was the opening statement of his literary career. Published originally in 1920, the novel captures the rhythm and feel of the gaudy postwar decade that was to follow in America. This Side of Paradise made Fitzgerald simultaneously famous and infamous: famous for the stylish exuberance of his writing and infamous for the errors - in spelling, fact, grammar, and chronology - that peppered his text. This new edition, prepared with the most recent techniques of modern scholarly editing, brings into being an accurate, fully annotated text based on Fitzgerald's original manuscript.

The volume includes a detailed account of the novel's creative and textual history; facsimiles from the early drafts; full textual apparatus; and a chronology of composition and publication. Explanatory notes gloss Fitzgerald's topical and historical references. Freeing the novel of its history of textual error, the current edition offers the reading public a more accurate and accessible This Side of Paradise than ever before.
