Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246)Professor Wai Chee Dimock positions her reading of Tender Is the Night alongside F. Scott Fitzgeralds career as a Hollywood screenwriter. She shows how the novel borrows narrative techniques from film, particularly flashback, "switchability" on a macro and micro scale, and montage. Invoking the theories of Sergei Eisenstein, she reads scenes of wartime death and individual murder to show how love and war are cross-mapped, superimposed onto one another as part of the narrative fabric of Tender Is the Night. 0000 - Chapter 1.
