"Lec 21 - Fitzgerald, Tender is the Night (continued)" Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246) Professor Wai Chee Dimock concludes her discussion of Tender Is the Night with a biographical sketch of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald's mental instability, the inspiration for the character of Nicole Diver. Invoking the schema of "have" and "have not," she then shows how Fitzgerald borrows techniques from film to quicken the pace of Dick Diver's narrative of dispossession. Dimock argues that Fitzgerald uses close-up, cross-cutting, and the speeding up of negative resolutions to strip Dick of his professional identity and to render him empty-handed at the end. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
