Abstract:

Fitzgerald's semiautobiographical first novel was considered intellectual and daring when it was published in 1920. Amory Blaine grows up in St. Paul in the early years of the century. His mother is an alcoholic whose wealth is sufficient to accommodate her eccentricities. She dotes on her son and encourages him to indulge his whims. His father is conspicuously absent. Amory observes the social graces, as befits someone of his class, but he is only capable of doing so superficially. He is always aware of himself and how he fits into his immediate surroundings. Because of this constant self-analysis, he finds it difficult to relax, to accept people as they are, and to make friends. It is at Princeton that Amory comes into his own, determined to make the best of what he considers from the outset to be the best years of his life.
