about this item

Fitzgerald's ironic epigraph to The Beautiful and the Damned exemplifies his attitude toward the young rootless post-World War I generation. Fitzgerald here once again displays a wariness of the upper classes--"an abiding distrust, and animosity toward the leisure class--not the conviction of a revolutionist but the smoldering hatred of a peasant."About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe.
