The Foreign Critical Reputation of F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1980-2000
An Analysis and Annotated Bibliography
AUTHOR: Linda C. Stanley
PUBLISHER: Greenwood Publishing Group, Incorporated
Also available at Amazon.com
This bibliography extends the work of Stanley's first volume, The Foreign Critical Reputation of F. Scott Fitzgerald: An Analysis and Annotated Bibliography, to the final two decades of the 20th century. It includes literature from the former countries of the USSR, Romania, India, and Canada, as well as countries that were covered in the first volume, such as Britain, France, Italy, Germany, and Japan. One of the major findings that emerges is that Fitzgerald's poetic prose is extremely difficult to translate, but new translations continue to appear.
The introduction to this volume provides a synthesis of Fitzgerald scholarship abroad at the turn of the 21st century and points to new directions already suggested that may represent challenges to current scholarship. An extended analysis introduces each chapter. Each chapter also includes a chronological list of translations and editions of Fitzgerald's work from his earliest appearances in print to those appearing in 2000. The most substantial section of each chapter features fairly detailed annotations of monographs, collections, book chapters, essays, conference papers, articles, reviews, and school editions. This compilation will intrigue anyone interested the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
