F. Scott Fitzgerald
Best of the Web
The motherlode of Fitzgerald info on the Web. Fitzgerald scholar Matthew J. Bruccoli of the University of South Carolina directed this project in honor of the 100th anniversary of Fitzgerald's birth. The site has images, primary sources, and quality criticism. Hard to do online research on Fitzgerald without it.
This site from Pittsburg (Kansas) State University is a useful collection of e-texts, papers and primary sources. Not all of the critical and student papers are worth reading, but the links to hard-to-find Fitzgerald texts are very useful.
Sort of the official web site for the F. Scott Fitzgerald Fan Club. Mostly geared toward academics, it links to news, scholarship and online resources about the author. The society also organizes an annual conference about Fitzgerald. Not the place to start your research, but worth a quick visit.
This site, which focuses on Zelda Fitzgerald's art and career, was prepared as part of the website for a 2004 British musical based on her life. It contains interesting images of Zelda's artwork, as well as an exhaustive database of books by and about the Fitzgeralds.
The library of the town where Fitzgerald grew up, went to school and published his first works has compiled an extensive annotated bibliography of the best works by and about Fitzgerald. Even if you live nowhere near St. Paul, it's a useful research tool. It also has a few good-quality online photos of the writer.
Part of a PBS series on the American Novel, this site focuses on Fitzgerald's contribution to the genre. It contains photos, timeline and links that help you place Fitzgerald's work in the context of American literature's development. As with all things PBS, you feel a little smarter just looking at it.
