Description

“Tender is the Night” is a novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the prominent American authors of the early 20th century. It was first published in 1934 and is considered one of Fitzgerald’s major works, along with his more well-known novel, “The Great Gatsby.”

Set in the 1920s, “Tender is the Night” tells the story of the lives and relationships of a group of wealthy Americans living in Europe. The central characters are Dick Diver, a promising young psychiatrist, and his wife, Nicole, who is beautiful and wealthy but suffers from mental illness. The novel explores themes such as love, ambition, wealth, and the corrupting influence of the so-called “Jazz Age” on individuals and society.

The narrative is structured in four parts, each portraying a different period in the lives of the characters. The first part introduces the reader to the glamorous lifestyle of the American expatriate community on the French Riviera. The second part delves into the backstory of Dick and Nicole, including their courtship and early married life. The third part focuses on the decline of their marriage and the deteriorating mental health of Nicole. Finally, the fourth part deals with Dick’s attempts at rebuilding his life.

“Tender is the Night” is known for its lyrical prose, intricate character development, and exploration of psychological themes. It is often regarded as a semi-autobiographical novel, reflecting some of Fitzgerald’s own experiences and struggles with his wife, Zelda, who also suffered from mental illness.
