Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246)
Professor Wai Chee Dimock demonstrates how four of Fitzgerald's most famous short stories -- "The Rich Boy," "Babylon Revisited," "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," and "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" -- represent "social types," generic identities that Fitzgerald explores as forms of social reality. She reads the dramatic tension in each of those stories as determined by the protagaonist's conformity to or deviation from their idealized social type.
