Annotation

Reads “Scott Fitzgerald” of A Moveable Feast as a fictional portrayal of the relationship between Fitzgerald and Hemingway more interested in expounding on the act of writing and the attributes of a good writer (Hemingway) and a bad writer (Fitzgerald) than on their actual relationship. Examines multiple dichotomies within the piece, including the distinction between “effortless” flight and “natural” talent in writing. Capitalizes on Hemingway’s desire to create a truth that was more real than the truth.
