The Happy Beginning of Z The Belle,Weltbürgerin

Anca Peiu

Abstract


The source of inspiration for my essay is Therese Anne Fowler’s book Z: A Novel by Zelda Fitzgerald,St. Martin’s Press, New York, 2013.  This exceptionally well documented volume is what made me start my own research of Zelda Fitzgerald’s original literary output. Linking facts to fiction (and Zelda’s non-fiction, as well as Gertrude Stein’s non-poetry), I have come to better understand and appreciate Therese Anne Fowler’s insight and hard work, dedicated to a tragic writer of the Roaring Twenties, better known under her mask as an emblematic flapper.


Keywords


Modernism – Postmodernism; Transnationalism – Weltbürgertum; poetry – non-poetry; fiction – non-fiction;metafiction; irony; love (and) letters
