Summary
  • "F. Scott Fitzgerald had a busy and productive literary apprenticeship, writing in a great variety of genres. This volume contains his writings for the student magazine at his high schools and his Princeton writings for the Daily Princetonian, the Princeton Tiger, and the Nassau Literary Magazine. Of special note in this volume are the complete lyrics that Fitzgerald composed for three student musical comedies mounted by the Triangle Club at Princeton - Fie! Fie! Fi-Fi! (1914), The Evil Eye (1915), and Safety First! (1916). The volume includes a scholarly introduction, a record of variants and emendations, and numerous facsimiles and other illustrations. Explanatory notes identify the literary works, Broadway shows, movie queens, stage stars, politicians, historical figures, criminals, sports heroes, and popular songs referred to by Fitzgerald in these early writings"--Provided by publisher
  • "The present volume of the Cambridge edition includes all public writings from Fitzgerald's literary apprenticeship--that is, all works that he prepared for print. The volume does not include three play scripts that he wrote for summer productions by the Elizabethan Dramatic Club, a local theatre group in St. Paul, nor does it include such writings as his adolescent "Thoughtbook," a diary of sorts that he kept during his thirteenth and fourteenth years, or the surviving fragments of "The Romantic Egotist," his first attempt at a novel. None of these writings was published during Fitzgerald's lifetime; all of them are available today in reliable scholarly editions"--Provided by publisher
