Scott Fitzgerald á 7 Characters Dick y Nicole Diver una glamourosa pareja norteamericana llegan a la Riviera francesa de los «felices años veinte» época en ue allí se daba cita la beautiful people de todo el mundo Son ricos inteligentes elegantes irresistiblemente atra. How is one to feel about a protagonist who freuently displays signs of elitism sexism bigotry and homophobia finds himself worryingly attracted to young girls has no goal in life except to make himself useful to damsels in distress and drinks away his career and marriage ending up a mere shadow of his former self Is one supposed to regard him as a tragic hero Is one to sympathise with him And if one does sympathise with him is that because of the way he was written or rather because we are aware that he is a thinly veiled version of the author himself a giant of early twentieth American literature Those were some of the uestions I pondered after reading Tender Is the Night F Scott Fitzgerald s last finished novel and possibly his most autobiographical one Set in France and Italy in the 1920s it tells the story of two wealthy American expats Dick and Nicole Diver largely based on the author and his wife Zelda who seem to others the most glamorous couple ever as fine looking a couple as could be found in Paris but are finding their private lives increasingly less glamorous We first see the couple through the eyes of Rosemary Hoyt a young and naive American actress holidaying in Europe Rosemary falls madly in love with suave Dick but also admires angelic Nicole After about 130 pages during which Rosemary hangs out with the Divers and nearly embarks on an affair with Dick the narrative stops and goes back in time to tell the story of Dick and Nicole s marriage which is considerably complicated than Rosemary realises Nicole it turns out has a history of mental illness and Dick is both her husband and the doctor treating her a recipe for disaster obviously Being a tale of needy people broken relationships loss of purpose and wasted potential Tender Is the Night is uite a depressing read and one s appreciation of it largely depends on one s tolerance for that kind of thing If you like your books bleak and tragic chances are you ll appreciate Tender Is the Night If not you might want to steer clear of itI generally love a good tragedy but I confess I wasn t overly impressed with Tender Is the Night For a book which has garnered so many rave reviews I found it remarkably flawed Fitzgerald himself seems to have somewhat agreed with me Despite referring to Tender Is the Night as his masterpiece and being shocked by its lack of critical and commercial success he began reconstructing it a few years before his death placing the flashback chapters at the beginning and making all the textual alterations reuired by this change However he died before he could finish the project or perhaps he abandoned the project as not worth completing no one seems to know for sure A friend of his Malcolm Cowley then completed the revision and for years this was the standard edition of the book However the Cowley version has fallen into scholarly disfavour or so Penguin informs me and several publishers Penguin included now use the first edition the one that Fitzgerald thought needed revision Apparently there are no fewer than seventeen versions of the novel extant which says much about how satisfied Fitzgerald was with his own work My guess Not very muchI read a version based on the first edition of the book and to be honest I can see why Fitzgerald felt it needed some work Tender Is the Night felt very disjointed to me To a certain extent this was because of the aforementioned non linear structure which felt a bit jarring to me However as far as I m concerned that is not the book s only problem nor even its biggest one What most annoyed me was the way in which the perspective keeps shifting Fitzgerald uses an omniscient narrator in Tender Is the Night but not consistently so the story is always written from a certain character s perspective Sometimes the perspective is Rosemary s sometimes it s Dick or Nicole s even the minor characters have stretches of the story told from their perspectives often on the same page as a main character s perspective To me these shifts in point of view often felt haphazard not to mention a little jarring I didn t think they were particularly effective either as they hardly build on each other and don t provide any information that couldn t be gleaned from a regular omniscient narrator I may be in a minority here but I think the book would have benefited from a consistent approach to perspective The story itself is a bit haphazard as well It occasionally drags it has little plot and there are uite a few scenes and storylines which don t really go anywhere Among several other seemingly unlikely scenes the book contains a murder a shooting and a duel none of which is fully integrated into the story and none of which is given proper significance Scenes are introduced and then left so randomly that you have to wonder why Fitzgerald bothered to include them at all At the risk of being unkind and judgemental I guess that s what being an alcoholic will do for an author it gives you wild ideas but prevents you from carrying them out properlyWhich brings me to the characterisation I ll probably get a lot of flak for this but I felt that Fitzgerald s vaunted characterisation was a bit off in this novel Many of the minor characters are sketchily drawn whereas the main characters are described well sometimes brilliantly so but never properly explained While Fitzgerald does a good and occasionally excellent job of sharing his protagonists feelings he hardly ever bothers to explain their motivations This particularly bothered me in the parts written from Dick Diver s point of view as Dick is supposed to be a psychiatrist By rights he should be analysing people actions and motivations all the time and asking lots of uestions However Dick hardly ever asks uestions He does not even ask himself uestions He never wonders why he is so drawn to young girls or what it is in him that causes him to need to be their saviour He just observes other people in a way of which any intelligent person trained psychologist or not would be capable and then describes their behaviour in a few felicitous phrases For this and other reasons I didn t buy Dick Diver as a psychiatrist Fitzgerald may have read up on psychology and undoubtedly learned a lot from the doctors who treated his own wife but I never found his alter ego convincing as a psychiatrist let alone a brilliant psychiatrist To me Dick has writer written all over himIt s a pity I kept finding such flaws because Tender Is the Night obviously had the potential to be amazing It has all the right ingredients interesting albeit snobbish and bored characters powerful themes evocative albeit freuently vague writing you name it And the story certainly doesn t lack in pathos It is uite harrowing to watch Dick Diver a supposedly brilliant and popular man who never lives up to his potential and is increasingly torn asunder by money alcoholism and his failed marriage to a mentally ill woman go to pieces becoming in his own words the Black Death I don t seem to bring people happiness any The fact that this was Fitzgerald writing about himself about his own frustrations and shattered dreams adds considerable poignancy to the reading experience Even so Tender Is the Night ended up leaving me fairly cold as I simply didn t care for Dick enough to be genuinely moved by his descent into failure While others may find Dick a swell guy I myself found his complacency and lack of purpose grating his alcoholism exasperating and his brilliance skin deep I seem to be alone in this opinion but I stand by it In summary then I enjoyed and admired aspects of Tender Is the Night but I don t think they add up to a great whole While I appreciate Fitzgerald s brutal honesty and the masterful way in which he evokes mutual dependence isolation and frustration I can t shake off the feeling that the book could have been much better than it ended up being And this pains me as I hate wasted potential as much as Fitzgerald himself seems to have done As it is Tender Is the Night is in my opinion not just a book about wasted potential but an example of wasted potential It is fitting I suppose but no less disappointing for that35 stars rounded down to three because I really didn t like it as much as many of the books I have given four stars lately
