The Beautiful and Damned

4.89

The Beautiful and Damned is a savage portrait of the young post-war generation who live only to pursue wealth and decadent pleasure.

Anthony Patch's union to the selfish and ravishing Gloria is heavenly at first but their marriage slowly unravels as reality sets in and their goal becomes his grandfather’s fortune. Gloria's beauty inevitably fades, and Anthony's drinking takes its toll. The Beautiful and Damned is also a vivid depiction of the Jazz Age, and the sights and sounds of New York’s nightlife.

 

F. SCOTT FITZGERALD (1896 –1940) is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night are considered his masterworks.
